All tours are created and led by Scott Setterberg, an award-winning professional photographer with 30 years of landscape photography experience. Scott has been published in Outdoor Photographer, Nature Photographer, Huffington Post, and other publications, and is a member of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA). Scott’s images have been exhibited in dozens of art galleries and juried fine art festivals throughout the United States, Costa Rica, and Asia and are held in private collections worldwide. Our Costa Rica photo tours also include a professional Costa Rican nature guide whose knowledge of Costa Rica’s history, locations, wildlife, and flora and fauna is unmatched.
