When I was a child I always dreamed of seeing a rainforest. Thoughts of Tarzan swinging from the trees and Mowgli's adventures took me on a journey of fantasy, to my own dreamworld of lush, tropical jungle and resident wildlife, especially the monkeys.
The opportunity finally came for me in 2013 to realize this ambition, when I had the opportunity to travel to the natural wonder that is Costa Rica. Although my vacation was limited to two weeks, during this short space of time I encountered an unforgettable diversity of flora and fauna, offering a glimpse of paradise.
My book is divided into seven sections, each with associated colours of the rainbow. The colours represent the seven different places I had the opportunity to stop, admire, learn and take photographs of Costa Rica’s beaches, volcanoes and rain forest.
I dedicate this book to all my fellow nature lovers. Hopefully the experiences I have shared with you, will one day inspire you to go and see this beautiful country for yourself, and help educate others to the importance of protecting the world’s natural resources for future generations.
I mostly love taking photos in nature with natural lights, but I also like to accentuate certain parts of an image to create dreamy painterly landscapes and portraits. To me, photography is all about the final image, regardless of the journey, whether it is through a traditional medium or digital post processing. I believe there should be ‘no limitations’ on one’s creativity to arrive at a beautiful picture.
