About

“Wild Tiquicia” is a collection of photographs of animals and landscapes taken throughout Costa Rica. The term “Tiquicia” is the moniker that Costa Ricans use for their country. 

During the period of time that I lived in Costa Rica, photography was the excuse that my wife and I used to get to know the natural wonders of the country. The result was a broad range of pictures of animals and scenery in mountains, on beaches, in the rain forest, and around many rivers.

Over time, I found that family, friends, and coworkers also enjoyed the fruits of our photographic labor. The “Wild Tiquicia” collection is a way of sharing our travels and the beauty designed by God which we were able to capture.

This Kickstarter campaign was launched to enable the printing of a number of books at the same time, thus lowering the cost for the high definition processes and special paper needed for photography.

The book is made up of 240 pages, including 14 chapters of photographs and an extensive index. Each photograph comes with a description which identifies the subject of the photograph. Additionally, facts about the subject and/or brief stories about taking the photograph are also included. The text is written in both English and Spanish. 

“Tiquicia Silvestre” es una colección de fotografías de animales y paisajes tomadas a través de Costa Rica. El vocablo “Tiquicia” es el seudónimo que los costarricenses utilizan para su país.

Durante el tiempo que viví en Costa Rica, la fotografía fue la excusa de mi esposa y la mía que utilizamos para conocer las riquezas naturales del país. El resultado fue una amplia gama de fotos de animales y paisajes en las montañas, playas, bosque lluvioso y alrededores de muchos ríos.

A lo largo del tiempo, encontré que tanto mi familia, mis amigos, así como, mis colaboradores de trabajo también gozaban de los frutos de nuestra labor fotográfica. La colección “Tiquicia Silvestre” es una forma de compartir nuestros viajes, así como, la belleza diseñada por Dios, que logramos captar.

Esta campaña de Kickstarter es lanzada para permitir la impresión de una cantidad considerable de libros bajando, consecuentemente, el costo de los procesos de alta definición y papel especial requerido para fotografía.

El libro contiene 240 páginas, incluyendo 14 capítulos de fotografías y un detallado índice. Cada fotografía viene con una descripción que identifica el sujeto de la fotografía. Además, se incluyen los hechos relacionados con el sujeto y/o breve relatos vinculados con el momento y toma de la foto. El texto está escrito en español e inglés.
