Costa Rica Photography Workshops With Matt Kloskowski


I’m super excited to announce that we’re doing another Wildlife Photography Workshop in Costa Rica in June 2018. Our last workshop was incredible. Some of the attendees actually said it was “life changing” and everyone came away with awesome shots and could not stop raving about the Crocodile Bay resort. I don’t think people realized just how good the resort staff would be, and that it is indeed all inclusive with AMAZING food and service throughout the trip. If you’ve ever been on a workshop before, I promise you it’s nothing like this. As for photography, we hit the jackpot!!! We saw all 4 types of monkeys from the area, sloths, frogs, an anteater and too many species of birds to name. The macro opportunities were spectacular as well. It truly is a special place, and ideal for a photography workshops.

I hope to see you there!

PS: This is a very small workshop group of only 10 people. That way, everyone gets very individual attention and plenty of room to shoot and learn. Because of that, reservations are limited and this will sell out quickly.
