Costa Rica Workshop

“In November we had a very nice visitor from Canada. I was ready to take this professional photographer and show him the nicest spots for a future workshop. From the first day with Frank I knew that this was going to be so much fun. Frank was very friendly and excited to see everything in the rain forest. The first day we had so much luck with more than 30 macaws flying all over us! Frank is very passionate about photography. He has a great knowledge that he shared with kindness and interest. After a week we became friends and I am pretty sure you will love and learn on his Costa Rica Workshop at Crocodile Bay Resort, an amazing place with a lot of wildlife.”

ONE on ONE Photography Mentoring

My name is Kathryn McGarvey and I am in amateur photographer in North
Vancouver, BC.
I recently had the good fortune to go on an unexpected safari to South
Africa. Not having much experience shooting wildlife and animals, I knew I
needed to find someone to help me get ready for this trip of a lifetime.
Frank Pali was a judge at our camera club and after listening to his Costa
Rica wildlife experience, I approached Frank to help me get ready. He agreed
to become my "wildlife photography" mentor and I am so glad that he did.
The $$$ spent were invaluable. I know for a fact that without his help, I
would never have been able to take these amazing photos that I did.
Frank was incredibly patient, informative, available, helpful, I could go on
and on.
Frank helped me select which lenses I should take and then on his own time,
even located additional camera equipment that I did not even know existed.
Frank sourced you tube videos for me to watch, helped me select computer
gear, took me bird shooting (saw my first ever great horned owl!!!!!), lent
me some camera apparel for the trip and was an unbelievable cheerleader.

I cannot thank Frank enough for all his time and input.
