Balance your White Balance with Photoshop and Lightroom

Architecture has always fascinated me. I have a few clients that I photograph houses for when I’m not on the road teaching. I appreciate the design aspects of good architecture and interior design, and I enjoy the challenge of finding the best angles to showcase the...

Great Photo Book from Saal Digital

Making photo books for my trips has been on my “to do” list for years. For one reason or another I never seem to get around to it. I went to Peru to lead a photo workshop along the Amazon River this year, and I figured THAT trip deserves a book if nothing else does!...

Inspiration from new technology

I think that play is important. It’s important to allow yourself to be creative and just PLAY sometimes to see what happens. There is no penalty for experimenting with a digital camera. You never know what you might create if you just try whatever comes to mind. And that is exactly what I did with the new Olympus E-M1 markIII in Peru when I co-led a photo workshop there for Wildside Nature Tours.

MagBeam Flash Extender Review

The MagBeam from MagMod makes your flash work with your telephoto lens. In my experience, flash tends to be the most mysterious device in most photographers’ bag. Most of my workshop clients have one, but most of them never use it. Maybe they were told that they...

Why Travel With Me?

State of the Art

I have been using mirrorless cameras since before they were cool. If you’re shooting one of those new-fangled mirrorless cameras you’ll feel right at home on my workshops. If you’re using a DSLR, that’s OK too! I’ll even let you try my mirrorless gear to see what the big deal is.

Experience Counts

I’ve been a teaching photography and leading workshops since 2009. The local guides that I work with are experienced and professional. My colleagues and I work hard to share our knowledge and help you explore your photographic vision.

Building Relationships

My clients and I are fun people and we tend to attract good folks. There is more to a good photography workshop than your time behind the camera. The relationships you build are often the best part of any great travel experience.

Not Exactly Roughing It

I enjoy exploring uncharted territory, but I also like great food and clean rooms. I look for the best restaurants wherever I go, and I will never take you to a roach motel. I joke that my trips are actually culinary tours and we make pictures between meals.

For the Photography Enthusiast

and the Adventurous Traveler

Even if you’re not an experienced photographer, you’ll be right at home on my Costa Rica Photo Tours. I’ve spent the last ten years organizing tours that put the travel experience first. My tours focus on making you feel like part of the community, and not just another tourist. You’ll hang out with local people, eat delicious local food and, of course, see unbelievable wildlife. Bring your DSLR, your mirrorless camera, your point-and-shoot, your camera phone, or anything in between. I’ll bet you have the experience of a lifetime, and I’ll help you capture every magical moment.

What My Guests Are Saying.

This photography workshop was a great experience that provided numerous opportunities to learn more about photography and the local culture. Both the instructors and local guides are very knowledgeable and pointed out things that I would never have noticed on my own. This well-organized, fun, and friendly workshop was the best way to jumpstart my interest in photography.

Now, I understand why so many of you were returning participants!  I would go back again too! Experiencing Costa Rica in such an up close and personal way was fabulous…. I must say that Leaves and Lizards was my favorite.  OMG!! the VIEW!!! Thank you all for your help with our cameras and the fun time sharing photographs and life experiences. We learned so much. It was great! And a special thanks to Rob and Bob – you men were amazing!

There was so many wonderful experiences it is hard to say which was my favorite. The expertise of our instructors was really made it. Nice to be able to ask questions while working instead of a traditional classroom setting.

It’s not every day or in life for that matter that you get an opportunity to share paradise with such diverse and talented people.

Thank you every one for being part of my life altering journey.
