Join Rich Harrington and family on a trip to Costa Rica and see a variety of ways to capture the beauty and diversity of a tropic destination. This unique course introduces you to the culture, countryside, and wildlife of Costa Rica, but also shows how to shoot photographs and video in challenging situations travel photographers face in many places.

Rich organizes the lessons by location and activity, so you can dive right into
the type of photography that interests you: nature, landscape, macro, underwater, street, or architecture. First he covers packing and planning for a trip to Costa Rica. Then he visits five uniquely beautiful locations, starting with the remote mountain town of Monteverde, where he gets “close up” to wildlife and takes a GoPro along on a zipline tour. At Manuel Antonio, he shows how to shoot at the beach—in and out of the water—and create awe-inspiring time lapses. In Arenal Rich enters the rainforest and shoots with local chocolate and coffee growers, and in Caño Negro, he takes a river-boat tour. The trip ends in San José, the capital of Costa Rica, which offers great opportunities for shooting street photography and architecture.

The course closes with some in-field workflow tips to keep your images safe, and some post-production techniques to develop your photos in Lightroom, Photoshop, and Camera Raw.

Topics include:

  • Understanding the geography of Costa Rica
  • Packing and planning
  • Photographing wildlife
  • Taking a GoPro on a zipline ride
  • Shooting at the beach and on the river
