2022 Costa Rica Photo Tour Schedule
2022 Costa Rica Photo Tour Schedule

by Scott Setterberg August 10, 2021

The last few weeks have been extremely busy.  I've done two long photo tours in Washington and Oregon and have also been creating new Costa Rica photo tours for 2022.  Both photo tours were amazing - exploring new locations, creating spectacular images, and making new, life-long friends. I truly have the best job in the world!  With that, let's move on to Costa Rica.  I've previously told subscribers why I do tours in Costa Rica when I do, and it's important to restate that information.

Cannon Beach At The Oregon Coast
Cannon Beach At The Oregon Coast

by Scott Setterberg May 10, 2021

I just returned from the first Oregon photography tour of the year and added a day at Cannon Beach at the request of a client.  Since the results of that day were pretty spectacular, I thought I'd write a little about the area, and share some images, too.  For several days before we arrived, the weather forecast called for rain at Cannon Beach.  Despite that, we carried on and took a chance, and as you can see from the photos in this post, we were rewarded for making the effort.

Those receiving our newsletters know that last year I wrote about scouting Olympic National Park and discussed an exciting new photography tour I was planning in the amazing park.  Using some downtime during the winter months, I finalized a fantastic photo tour, and am happy to announce the Olympic National Park photo tour that is offered twice in August 2021, fulfilling my promise to readers.  The first thing to know is that the beautiful park is gigantic and incredibly diverse.

"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.

Costa Rica Photo Tour Clients

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

~ Herman R.

"Our photo tour was absolutely incredible!  Every day was planned to perfection, and 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 Blue Morpho butterflies.  Our transportation was comfortable and roomy and the nature guide was great, spoke perfect English, and knew so much about all the plants, wildlife, and history of 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 photographer friends that ColorTexturePhotoTours is awesome!"
