Photoworkshop Costa Rica Classic 16 days
Animals, rain/ cloud forest and volcanic landscapes
A photos travel in all respects!
Costa Rica is world famous for its 25 national parks and 11 large protected areas in the rainforest.
Who, however, wants to visit the many national parks or even just a few of them is not on the right trip with us! Why? The explanation is easy! Who wants to look for the animals in the national parks, has little to no idea of Costa Rican wildlife and the associated restrictions or provided good opportunities! In the national parks you will find mainly tourists in huge quantities, and something very important: the national parks of Costa Rica open in the morning until eight o'clock, very few only at seven o'clock, and some are even closed one day a week! The animals do not know where the park boundaries are but our guides do! We also want to do some night watching tours to look out for frogs, lizards and snakes!
We guarantee the very best photo opportunities and many, many animals, and all this with one of the best and most experienced local guide! He is not only a brilliant guide, but also a fantastic photographer! So we can benefit from it in all respects!
An incredible abundance of animals can be admired without the crowds of tourists.
We do not want to take just a few snap shots on the trip. We want to take time for the numerous and various animals. So we will take our time, a lot of time for photographing.
The tropical character of the country surprises with its diversity, richness and size.
During those two weeks, you can enjoy a very excellent tour guide who can give best information about animals, plants and the habits and customs of the country.
The accommodation is carefully chosen and is very ideal for our excursions. You will be amazed by the lodges!
Full board is offered on this trip. The food is excellent and versatile! Good meat and lots of vegetables plus delicious fruits!
All meals and drinks * are included! We will leave you not up to your fate in regards to the food. Everything is very well organized!
Enjoy a first class photo trip in a small group.
Small excursions, really just short hikes or walks in easy terrain will allow you to see the natural wonders of the tropical rainforest: look, marvel, take pictures, admire, enjoy.
You will cope easily on this trip and no special condition is needed:
Whoever thinks he is melting away from the heat and moisture in those called humid tropics is partly wrong!
This photo trip has only one Lodge which is really in a warm and humid area. We will stay there the first few nights. But great photo opportunities will make this worth it! Guaranteed! All other lodges are then located slightly higher in altitude and therefore the climate is already very pleasant and not so humid anymore.
We show you the most interesting places of the tropical rain and cloud forest in Costa Rica.
Our guide is also a professional photographer and successfully working for discerning tourists for two decades now. You will be extremely impressed by the diversity and what we will see and photograph! Especially with the guidance of real animal photographic professionals!
Dionys Moser has traveled Costa Rica and picked some very interesting areas for you.
We will photograph the small animals and will hold a macro workshops! Amazing pictures are guaranteed!
For who is this nature photo travel really?
Generally for animal interested people and ambitious photographers: We are looking for amphibians (poison dart frogs, glass frogs, and others), colorful birds, snakes, lizards, monkeys, mammals, insects and plants.
Sure, if birds are in the area a lens with 400mm or longer focal length is an advantage.
Very important are also a macro lens and a telephoto lens for the area around 200 to 400mm! A camera with good ISO values and a solid tripod is also very important!
What can you expect on this photo trip?
We will see various mammals, monkeys, small mammals, sloths, many, many colorful birds like toucans, hummingbirds, and probably also the Quetzal (9 Quetzals on the tour in 2016!)
Also a lot of different frogs like poison dart frogs, roaches frog, lizards such as the large land iguanas, basilisk, certainly various snakes and great opportunities for insect macros.
Just carry enough image memory with you, preferably a hyperdrive /pictures tank!
On the journey we continue to make macro-workshops. We'll show you how to use your flash correctly and show you the use of soft boxes.
