Want to know more about being a photographer and life in Costa Rica? This blog is about my life, my name is John Williamson and I have been exploring, photographing and living in Costa Rica since 2000.
I first came to Costa Rica, via Virginia, to work as a photographer for Costa Rica Outward Bound, living the sort of experiences that one can normally only dream of – hiking my way through the jungle, jumping off waterfalls, and climbing volcanoes…and this was a job? (Well admittedly my home was a tent and the salary was pennies!). 10 years later I am certainly more established with my own home, photography business, two cats and a baby on the way. But I am still living the dream…I work with people on the happiest day of their lives, my photography backdrop is a beach or a wonderful sunset view and I live in paradise. What more could a man ask for?
My main photography areas are weddings portraits and architecture, though I am still a passionate nature photographer and am currently working on perfecting my underwater photography skills. In my spare time, when not photographing and editing, I love to travel, scuba dive, surf, and cook. Please follow my blog to hear more about my times in Costa Rica and life as a destination wedding photographer.
