As photographers, we all struggle with putting work aside to relax and take some “me” time, so why not join us in Costa Rica for an incredible 5-day trip full of relaxation and portrait photography shoots! We’ve put together an amazing package for our fellow photographers to join us in Antonio Manuel, Costa Rica for some get away time while still having the opportunity to build and grow your business. Not only will you get to stay in our incredible villa overlooking the Pacific Ocean, but we’ve put together some amazing shoots for you at private waterfalls, beaches, and gardens! We can’t wait to share this fantastic experience with you!
As fellow photographers, we get it! It’s hard to escape the studio and take a break, and that’s why we’re going to Costa Rica. Creativity doesn’t come during the stress of studio shoots or the frantic pace of editing, meeting with clients, keeping up with social media marketing…day in and day out. We need time to rest, relax, and let those creative juices flow! That’s why you need to join us in Costa Rica. Not only will you have the opportunity to get some downtime, listen to the sounds of nature, and get in some self-care, but you’ll have the opportunity to create, capture incredible images in a low stress environment, and be among fellow photographers to collaborate and exchange ideas.
This experience is not just about taking some time to relax and re-charge, but it’s also time for you to capture some stunning, portfolio images in a stress-free environment. We’ve take care of it all! We’ve reserved the villa, we’ve arranged the chef, we’ve booked the models, and we’ve arranged the locations. All you need to do is get there and be ready to shoot! Take this time to add an international destination to your portfolio, collaborate and learn from fellow industry professionals, sit back and edit photos from a chair overlooking the rainforest and the Pacific ocean!
Once all reservations have been made, we will look at everone's locations and estimated times of arrival into SJO. At that time we will let all the attendees know when the coach will arrive to pick them up.
Absolutely! For only $1000 additional you can bring someone to share your room with.
