A Travel Photography Guide to Costa Rica

A Travel Photography Guide to Costa Rica

     Costa Rica is a beautiful country filled with countless National Parks and beaches worth visiting so I must admit this is by no means an exhaustive guide. I was in the country for about a week and mainly stayed in the north west Guanacaste region because there is surf in the summer and therefore this guide will be limited to my experiences. Another side note, I spent part of this trip doing photography and as well as surfing and doing surf photography so there will be some advice irrelevant to the purely landscape photographer. That being said, on with the photography tips! LOGISTICS      Flights are cheapest into the capital of San Jose though there are many airports throughout the whole country. Check prices in advance because logistically it might work out better to fly closer to the region you will be staying in. I planned to drive out to the Guanacaste region so the most budget friendly flight was fine by me. Renting a car in Costa Rica was amazingly cheap! My first reservation worked out to $7 a day however there was some issues with my paying with a debit card and I was forced to add on full insurance coverage which bumped up the price. Had I used a credit card with its included rental car insurance then the price would’ve been that low. I would suggest renting a 4×4 vehicle because the roads in Costa Rica are largely unpaved and bumpy.

A Travel Photography Guide to Iceland

          Iceland has become a hotspot travel destination over the last few years due to its beautiful landscapes and very instagrammable locations. What makes it great for landscape photographers is the variety and proximity of mountains, waterfalls, basalt cliffs, fjords, and other uniquely Scandinavian terrain. A photographer visiting the same locations at different times of the year will walk away with shots that bear little resemblance to each other making it a great place for repeat trips. All this goes without mention of the famous Northern Lights which alone would be a draw for those adventurous seekers of beauty.             I visited Iceland in March which is around the end of the Aurora season unfortunately but I still came away with amazing images and vastly improved my photography skills. This will be a guide to locations I personally visited and can speak to but there’s many more known locations and with a creative eye one can find unique compositions even in what isn’t considered a hotspot. What I found from flying my drone around the mountains is there are many many unnamed and hidden waterfalls so anyone could be the discoverer of the next iconic shot.     LOGISTICS           I will briefly touch on the basics of food, lodging and transportation in Iceland but this guide will primarily be location specific photography advice. In the future if there is interest in these topics I can elaborate. Getting around Iceland is quite easy as there are paved roads that circumvent the entire outside of the island...
