Imagine… none of the amenities of home. None of them. No kids, no shovelling, no boring meetings or email. No need to do dishes, cook meals, vacuuming or laundry…you get the picture. Instead of all that, why not spend 7 nights in Costa Rica working on your tan and learning to use that fancy digital camera the way it was intended.

You’ve just imagined a Tornado Hunter photography workshop in Costa Rica at the 5 star Riu Guanacaste.

We will be spending 7 nights enjoying the tropical forests and wildlife as well as exploring volcano national parks, tropical waterfalls and perfect Pacific beaches. We will be taking advantage of our time together to learn as much as we can about the camera in an ideal setting.  But, don’t worry we want to soak in some rays and explore this amazing setting as well. There will be a great balance between vacation, party, laughter, camera and adventure.  Beginners as well as seasoned camera vets are welcome. If you are a beginner, we will get you to a much better place, the Vets can expect to refine their skills while focusing on specific projects.

  • “I totally didn’t think I could do this. I’ve had my camera for three years and the dial has never left ‘auto’. On Saturday night Greg was showing the slideshow of our photos….they were all so amazingly awesome, and some of them were mine! I was humbled by the positive comments Greg had for my photos. I learned, it stuck, and I found out that I CAN do this. I have nothing but admiration and gratitude for Greg and the wonderful opportunity I had to join this fabulous group for a week in Cuba. “
