Los Santos is a region famous for its pure arabica coffee production. Border restrictions in 2020 left producers with an abundance of coffee but few workers to harvest the beans. Growers like Né (shown here) were forced to call upon family members to work the fields for the first time in over a decade.

El Dia del Niño is a day in which Costa Ricans celebrate the rights of children. Mothers across the country hand-sew traditional clothes for their children to parade around the school or central plaza each year. In 2020, with schools closed due to Covid, Samantha and her sister Emily celebrated this day standing proudly in front of their home in the village of Alfombra, Pérez Zeledon.

One thing I love about surf photography is the unexpected. You don’t know what pictures are going to come out, you can’t plan it or pose for them in most cases, the right and perfect moment just happens.

They are very aggressive, and defend flowers and weeds within the area where they feed. They are more dominant than most other hummingbirds.

Cataratas Arrayanes, Varablanca: This amazing waterfall sight is at one of my favorite places in Costa Rica. Unfortunately, it no longer exists due to a cabeza de agua.

Cave at Playa Baja Mar: With access only possible at low tide, you need to time your photo shoot with the light of sunset or sunrise to capture the best image.

This photo is a part of a personal project for a conceptual photoshoot, we had lots of challenges that day from rain,time and even an earthquake of 6.8 ! That occurred  on July 21, 2021. Despite all the challenges we got the shoot done and we are super happy with the results.

This Tamarindo aerial view consists of about 100 photos welded together. It was created as a proof-of-concept for an environmental mapping solution that we eventually used at the Belize barrier reef and Palo Verde.
