As well as an abundance of sun, surf and fun, we seem to be blessed here in Santa Teresa with an abundance of talented photographers. One of the best is our very own Jennifer Harter, a home-grown Costa Rican talent.
Jen, who is a surf girl as well as a photographer, was born and raised in San Jose. She moved to Santa Teresa in 2002 and fell in love with beach life. With the exception of an interruption to complete her photography degree in Barcelona, she has lived in Santa Teresa ever since.
Jen specializes in surf and wedding photography, but also produces some spectacular landscape shots. Her love of the ocean and of Latin America comes through clearly in her work. In her own words…
“The ocean is my love and photography is my passion. Combining them has allowed me to live a life that I adore. Through my images I try to vividly capture miraculous, magical living moments by synchronizing my eyes, my mind, and most importantly my heart. As a surfer I´ve learned that splendor and challenge comes from mastering the art of improvisation while playing with the ever-changing universe.
In my images I try to share magical and unique moments as I see them. I feel the love of people coming together, I Witness a stunning show of dancing points of light shimmering on moving waters. I see the freedom of beach living and being in communion with nature. and I see the beauty in life´s most sacred celebrations of love.”
It was hard to decide which of Jen’s beautiful photos to show you in this post – each of her images seems to present something different, but all of them capture the something magical that makes us all love Costa Rica.
Which is why you should go to Jen’s website and take a look for yourself – www.jenniferharter.com
