Rainforests of Costa Rica Photo Workshop

Roy Toft has been photographing the wildlife in Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula rain­forest jungle for over 20 years. His first trip was in 1989 and Roy has been back an esti­mated 45 times. See what keeps bringing Roy back to this amazing little slice of tropical paradise and the remarkable imagery that he created for his coffee table book, “Osa: Where the Rainforest Meets the Sea.”

Scarlet Macaw Bird Photography Workshop

For bird photog­ra­phers, the Costa Rica rain­forest is an ideal location to observe and photo­graph Scarlet Macaws and a variety of other birds. This small group workshop is led exclu­sively by Roy Toft and is dedi­cated to expe­ri­encing and photographing the excep­tionally beau­tiful Scarlet Macaw. Our desti­nation is in Carate at the remote Lookout-Inn Lodge, which is located near Corcovado National Park in south­western Costa Rica. This isolated region is home to the country’s last great breeding popu­lation and highest concen­tration of scarlet macaws.


It was a real pleasure to be a part of Roy’s photo safari to Costa Rica (Osa Peninsula). Although I didn’t have as much photog­raphy expe­rience or as fancy equipment as most of the partic­i­pants, I came away with many useful tips for me with my own equipment that help me enjoy photog­raphy even more! Roy is a formi­dable teacher (obvi­ously enjoys it) — and he is great fun, too! Kathryn, Zurich Switzerland
