Working with outdoor locations is always a challenge. Even during the tropical rainy season here —usually September and October— the magic happens as fast as the weather changes. Kevin’s production team is so solid, fun and flexible they can anticipate the changes, creating the foundations of style and story. Kevin and team have been known to schedule the clouds to part and the monkeys to appear on cue. It all happens smoothly no matter what Mother Nature has in store. From quiet and tranquil to explosive and dynamic moments, Kevin has created a story with a sense of place and wonderment.
Through a series of exciting and authentic images, we get to see a timeless place where people engage and blend in a diversity of natural environments. The peninsula is known for one of the last tropical dry forests on the planet, as well as its lush emerald plant life and magnificent array of colorful birds and wildlife. There’s something for everyone at Peninsula Papagayo.
