The Rain Forests of Costa Rica
August 13-23, 2018
$4500 with internal airfare
In August of 2017, I scouted the rain forest of Costa Rica and scouted out the area and found an amazing location for a Central American photo tour. You will be surrounded by amazing wildlife, scenic views, and the Costa Rican culture. All of this takes place on the Osa Peninsula, with not a big hotel in sight. We will be spending 8 nights at a resort with daily photo excursions. I have the full itinerary HERE. These explorations are with the best guides who will find the best local wildlife for us to photograph, including tree frogs, monkeys, sloths and so much more. This trip includes air travel within the country, all meals, wine with dinner, and evening classes with me.
Testimonials from Photo Tour Attendees
My adventure with Jeff Cable and Mike from MM Photo Tours was much more fun than I could have ever expected. I had seen Jeff’s enthusiasm and experience on his blogs and B & H videos over the last several years, but they do not compare to Jeff Cable in person.
Jeff was always giving good instruction and finding new things to photograph. He was friendly, enthusiastic, full of knowledge, and always willing to help us.
Mike had a good well organized tour that took care of details from beginning to end. Food, travel and accommodations were all excellent.
From before sunrise till after sunset we laughed, learned new techniques, took great photos, and had memorable experiences shooting the animals of Africa. I brought back home many wonderful shots and memories that I will always cherish.
Having traveled the world on business, I thought this would be my first and only photographic safari and my last trip to Africa. I am planning on another trip to Africa, one to Costa Rico next year, and India in 2020. I may even go to Antarctica to hit my seventh and last continent. - Pat B (Botswana 2018)
I participated in Jeff’s November 2017 expedition to Costa Rica. For several years I have been following Jeff’s social media posts and presentations at B&H, I like his presentation and teaching style so much that when the opportunity to go to Costa Rica with him arose I jumped on it. That decision turned out to be the best photography-related decision I’ve made in the last ten years. The images I returned home with are outstanding. I’ve posted to photo critique websites and have gotten rave reviews. Everyone I show the images to are in awe at the quality of the images and the exotic subject matter. Jeff’s instruction during the tour made all-the-difference in the quality of my captures. He paid close attention to each of us in the field and during non-shooting discussions and critiques.
The staff at Crocodile Bay Resort were outstanding. They treated us as if we were royalty. The menu for all three meals is extensive and the quality of the food is beyond expectations. Our guides, Dennis and Diego, had an incredible eye for spotting wildlife. As photographers themselves, they knew which sightings would offer better photographic opportunity.
In closing, the one tour feature that places Jeff’s Costa Rica tour far ahead of other Costa Rica photography tours is his arrangement with Canon Professional Services for tour members to obtain loaner camera bodies and lenses at no cost. I received on loan an EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS and EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS lens. These are the same lenses Jeff used, which made implementing Jeff’s shooting suggestions instructions work so well. - David A. (Costa Rica 2017)
Our Costa Rica trip was great. Jeff and everyone else we met were friendly and helpful. The resort was great and we saw a LOT of animals including birds, monkeys, sloths and frogs. Jeff was super enthusiastic and a good teacher. He was constantly helping us take better photos and he really gave me some good post processing tips. I would be happy to travel with him again. We were a couple with a photographer and a non-photographer and both of us had a great time. - Bob P. (Costa Rica 2017)
I'm not a photographer, but still like tagging along with my photographer husband on trips. It's a wonderful opportunity to see the world and experience the adventure that goes along with capturing the photos. Jeff's trip to Cost Rica did not disappoint. It was a unique opportunity to see so many different animals, birds and insects and take time to just observe them in their habitats. I thoroughly enjoyed all the field trips as well as hiking around the resort. Jeff was even gracious enough to give me a beginners photo lesson one afternoon, and I got a few nice shots. Our guides were excellent, helping us not only find the wildlife but also learn about the animals, environment & locale. The resort was very comfortable; we were treated like we were part of their extended family. - Tracy P. (Costa Rica 2017)
I have wanted to see a rain forest for some time and this tour exceeded my expectations. Jeff did a great job of selecting adventures spaced with some free time. The accommodations were very good and the food was fantastic. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Each adventure yielded many animals, most of which I had not seen before. Admittedly, some of the photo opportunities were "assisted" by the guides, but I believe I would have found it difficult to spot an inch long frog on my own. The guides were expert in spotting the animals, and I even learned some things. “ If you see isolated leaves falling from the trees above, and it is not windy, it is likely an animal moving about.” The photography was a bit hard at times with the subject high in the trees, moving about and just as you located and focused on them, they would rapidly move away. Jeff was always there to assist in your photographic efforts. All in all, this was an excellent trip! If you are interested in the rain forest and its animals, go with Jeff to Costa Rica and say hello to Sweetie the monkey for me. - Carol C. (Costa Rica 2017)
After many years of watching Jeff on YouTube and following along on his blog, I finally got an opportunity to meet him in person at Vivid in Sydney. What an absolute pleasure!! Jeff is so passionate about what he does and his enthusiasm is so infectious that immediately you want to get the unique shots that he does. I am amazed and so happy with the photos that I came away with - and also the knowledge that I gained. I used camera settings I would never have used and saw angles and shots that normally I would walk past. Jeff, your love of photography is addictive, your sense of humour so much more fun, and I hope one day we can meet up with our cameras and do it all again!! - Sue C. (Sydney 2017)
We had an amazing time with Jeff shooting Vivid 2017 in Sydney, Australia. I learned so much more about my camera and how to take good photos. Each day offered a different opportunity, from sports photography to night shooting. It was fantastic to be alongside Jeff to see how a professional operates. I cannot wait to get out there and put all that I have learned to good use. Jeff was great at explaining what he was doing and how to get the great shot. Many thanks to Jeff and Dean for their help and assistance for what was truly an epic adventure - Marion C. (Sydney 2017)
I was recently on a photo tour with Jeff Cable in Sydney, Australia. He taught us techniques of night photography which we were able to put into practice as we watched the beautiful colored light displays on Sydney Harbor for Vivid 2017. Jeff had searched out the best vantage points for us to photograph, well before we arrived at each location. I also enjoyed the opportunity to watch a professional photographer in action and the work that went into getting a "good shot". Now it is time for me to practice what I was taught. I would recommend this tour to anyone. The scenery is great and Jeff and Dean are warm and friendly people. Don't hesitate - just do it! - Janice (Jeff's oldest groupie at 79) (Sydney 2017)
My trip to Tanzania with Jeff was over the moon, so much more than I ever imagined. His teaching skills are perfect for all levels. He helped everybody throughout the trip both with their cameras and photo skills. The students always came first before his shots, something not true in other workshops I have been to. Great attention to details. - Patsy L. (Tanzania 2017)
Jeff was very hands-on with instructions and easy-to-follow discussions. He always had suggestions for improving our photos from a beginner level to expert level. He had great insight on how to prep, anticipate, and follow through with photos and constantly moving wildlife. Big Thanks for all the insight and discussions on the trip. It was a very enjoyable two weeks. Planning on doing it again! - J.D. (Tanzania 2017)
Jeff was the main reason I signed up for the Tanzania tour. From the pre-trip planning thru the end of the trip and even now that we are all back home, Jeff was friendly, enthusiastic, encouraging, helpful and committed to making sure I had a great time and came home with great photos. On the days I was in the vehicle with him he made sure I was in position to get the shot, he helped me "see" the shot, he had me try fun things like panning, he made sure the driver stopped for us or moved a few feet for us so we could get a better angle all while taking amazing photos himself. At the end of the day he was always around downloading his photos and doing some editing and was willing to answer questions. After we got back he shared all the (many) photos he took of us during the two weeks. Mike planned a wonderful itinerary with great places to stay, in great locations, with good food and warm hospitality. Our little group all had a great time together and I think Mike and Jeff set the tone with their friendliness and helpfulness before the tour even began. I would definitely take another trip with them in the future. - Sara C. (Tanzania 2017)
The chance to travel though M&M Photo Tours with the likes of pro photographer Jeff Cable was phenomenal. He provided group and individual instruction and took my skills to a new level. To this day I use techniques and always remember him emphasizing shutter and aperture. He taught us how to anticipate a scene so we were always prepared with our settings. It was one of the best experiences and I look forward to another opportunity soon! - Tina C. (Tanzania 2016)
It's rare to find someone who's excellent in their field, an excellent teacher and great person. Jeff is all three. - Matthew G. (Tanzania 2016)
