Upcoming Workshops:

Steve Perry: Wildlife Photography Workshop

Photographer Steve Perry

The Adventure Of A Lifetime! This once-in-a-lifetime photo workshop will take place on Costa Rica’s beautiful Osa Peninsula, a location National Geographic calls, “The most biologically intense place on Earth.” An impressive claim, but just a few hours on site is enough to make a believer out of any skeptic. In fact, I think the National Geographic statement may not do it justice!

Costa Rica Photography Workshop with Mario Moreno

Photographer Mario Moreno

South Cape Images specializes in Wildlife Photographic Tours to various destinations in Africa and Costa Rica like Masai Mara, Amboseli Serengeti, Ndutu, Chobe, Okavango Delta and Osa Peninsula. They are conceived for small groups of photographers of all levels. We design our tours to guarantee exceptional photographic opportunities and a True Wildlife Experience. Capturing “Perfect Moments” is our goal and as an expert wildlife and landscape photographer I will make sure that you return home with the images you pursue. However, being able to indulge in the wilderness is just as important and this is why we only use exclusive lodges and mobile tented camps that guarantee seclusion away from the tourist crowds and that meet your every need when returning from your photo sessions. Non-photographer partners will enjoy our tours just as much.
