Deep Green Photography

Greg Basco is a resident Costa Rican professional photographer and environmentalist who enjoys a working relationship with Canon. He is a BBC/Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Nature's Best Windland Smith Rice prizewinner, and his photos have been published in National Geographic and other magazines and have been used in many books, public exhibits, calendars, and other projects. Greg's latest work is a coffee table book of artistic photos from national parks and biological reserves of Costa Rica. In his photography, Greg uses little post-processing, preferring instead to employ a number of in-camera and in the field techniques to produce photographic images that offer a fresh and unique view of Costa Rica's biodiversity.

In addition to his own photography, Greg enjoys working with tour clients to help them improve their photography and capture great photos of their own in the challenging habitats of Costa Rica. Indeed, he liked it so much that a few years ago he founded Foto Verde Tours, Costa Rica's first and only travel company specializing in photographic tourism. Check out Greg's website at
