JOURNEYS and photography teacher Wayde Carroll invite passionate amateur photographers to capture the best of Costa Rica. Explore three contrasting environments -- the cloud forest of San Ramon, the lush highlands of Arenal Volcano, and the waterways of the famous Tortuguero National Park on the Caribbean coast. In the company of expert professional naturalists, Wayde leads the group to the most select viewpoints in varying light conditions to capture magnificent scenery and a rich array of wildlife.
Wayde begins mentoring participants at the time of sign-up, offering consultation on camera equipment. On the trip, he works with travelers individually and presents evening slideshows and talks. Topics include composition, color, "seeing" the best light, use of camera programs and manual settings, flash techniques, tripod use, capturing moving subjects, photographing people, and much more.
Enjoy charming accommodations, expert nature interpretation, and a friendly, relaxing overall experience. The trip cost includes all guiding, photography mentoring, accommodations, transportation in Costa Rica, and most meals. Adventure activities are optional and at extra cost: zipline over the rain forest canopy, soak in thermal hot springs, add on whitewater rafting. We have lots of ideas for trip extensions.

Don't be intimidated by the term "photography workshop." Whether you have a pocket-sized point-and-shoot or an advanced digital SLR with several lenses, Wayde will enjoy helping you improve. "Wayde is an incredible teacher... Not only did the trip provide fantastic photo opportunities, wildlife and mentoring, it was a great firsthand look into the culture. I've traveled twice with Wayde and I look forward to more. Every moment was a joy!" -- Denise Sutter, Costa Rica Photo Safari, June 2009
