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.


Quetzal and Hummingbird Costa Rica Photo Workshop

Our workshop will take place in the cool, cloud forests of the Costa Rica Talamanca Mountain range. Here we will spend two crisp mornings photographing one of the most beau­tiful birds in the world…the near threatened Resplendent Quetzal. Our after­noons will be spent photographing the dozen or so different species of humming­birds that live in this high elevation biological reserve. Another standout of this trip is the fresh trout. Our family-run lodge serves a whole variety of fresh fish dishes that they make from trout raised on the property.
