Costa Rica Dolphins Photography workshopBe ready for early mornings and late evenings. Sunrise in Costa Rica during our workshop is 5:30am and sunset around 5:45pm. The best light for a photography workshop is always early morning and late afternoon. Depending on the location and weather, sometimes a sunset or sunrise photo shoot isn’t possible, so be flexible. In our workshop, if the weather or conditions are bad, we will offer instruction on photo editing programs or find another location as an alternative.

Part of a great photography workshop is instructors who will not only help you with the basic settings on your camera, but will also help you with creative concepts and help you create intentions for your shot. Only experienced photography workshop leaders like ours can give you that type of instruction.

Changes in route or schedule may occur at any time and is up to the discretion of Jansen Photo Expeditions.
We are well versed in all the areas we cover in our workshops and itineraries may change to accommodate for unforeseen circumstances.
