Capitalizing on Costa Rica's Climate

by Scott Setterberg December 11, 2019

Costa Rica is a magical land of spectacular natural beauty teeming with jaw-dropping waterfalls, dense jungles, lush rainforests, misty cloud forests, shimmering beaches, towering mountains, active volcanoes, and hundreds of species of exotic wildlife. Costa Rica's tropical climate is largely responsible for the incredible natural beauty and produces seven months of rainfall and year-round high humidity.

Creative Composition: Natural Frames
Creative Composition: Natural Frames

by Scott Setterberg November 01, 2019

Many times we arrive at a location that's super popular and overshot, and if we shoot like everyone else, from the same spots as everyone else, we end up with the same images as everyone else.  To get around this, I encourage clients to get off the beaten path and look for different ways to create unique images.

by Scott Setterberg October 24, 2019

In my last post, you got to know me more by watching my interview with Alex Schult, the founder of the highly respected website, PhotographyTalk.  Since so many of you responded positively to that post, I thought I'd switch roles and introduce you to our professional Costa Rica nature guide, Jason Torres.

"I've been back a week from my Costa Rica adventure and it was FANTASTIC FUN! It was every bit as fabulous as I’d hoped it would be
and Scott’s easy going manner was so nice. His comments and sense of humor made everything from food to lush
accommodations awesome!  Thanks for the marvelous experience."
~ Kathleen C.

"During my spectacular photo tour, I was able to experience every corner of Costa Rica with the best photographic artist, Scott Setterberg, and his professional, efficient team. Thanks to Scott, who showed me how to use creative compositions, filters, and exposure techniques to produce better photographs, I was able to create excellent images filled with rich color, texture, and contrast that permeates Costa Rica's landscapes. Each morning, I could hardly wait for the next adventure to begin... blue morpho butterflies resting on your shoulders, monkeys swinging like circus acrobats through the lush jungle canopy, and sensational waterfalls creating the grandest of stages. We hiked in the lush mountains, bathed in a paradise of exotic plants, flowers, and fruit trees, and each pathway led us to light as the chant of waterfalls seduced us long before we ever saw them. We stayed in a variety of wonderful hotels, decorated with exquisite taste, rustic Costa Rican charm, and an air of romanticism. There were beautiful tropical gardens, refreshing pools, hot springs, spas, and incredible volcano views. We ate at some of the best restaurants and I can't stop thinking about how delicious the food was! The friendly staff at each hotel attended to us with a charisma of familiarity and one chef even shared a couple recipes with me. I also have to say that Costa Rica has some of the freshest, best flavored margaritas I have ever tasted! This vacation was an unforgettable experience that I’d love to repeat. Thank you Scott for your excellent work, for taking care of me, improvising and finding solutions, providing outstanding food, lodging, transportation, and extraordinary places to visit. Thank you for everything and for giving me an incredible vacation."
~ Sara C.

"This was an outstanding and very professional experience. Highly recommended."
~ Herman R.

"Our photo tour was absolutely incredible! Every day was planned to perfection, the national parks and waterfalls were all so different and stunningly beautiful. Each hotel was fantastic with immaculately manicured gardens filled with tropical plants and flowers, and the food was SO delicious! We saw a group of monkeys, several coatis, a sloth, many colorful frogs and lizards, and tons of birds and gorgeous Blue Morpho butterflies. Our transportation was private and comfortable, and we had the same friendly and helpful driver for the entire tour. The nature guide was great, he spoke perfect English, and knew so much about all the plants and wildlife in the different areas that we explored. Scott's photography tips were spot-on and our images improved dramatically. Oh yeah, our gift bags, free massages, and relaxing in the hot springs put a cherry on top! Thank you so much for such an amazing experience. We are telling all our friends that ColorTexturePhotoTours is awesome!"
