Your leader and guide - Juan Carlos Vindas

Born and raised in the countryside near San José, Costa Rica, Juan Carlos grew up surrounded by all sorts of nature and wildlife. This proved to be the perfect environment as he became very interested in the abundance of local nature. Being immersed in a tropical country helped him develop a special love for birds which in turn made him switch from a promising career as an architect to a bird watching tour guide in 1994. It wasn’t until 2006 that he first picked up a digital SLR camera and fell in love with photography. Since then, he has never stopped taking dramatic pictures of birds in their natural habitats. He now leads photography workshops and birding tours in Costa Rica and Latin America.
