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
