What clients, viewers, readers and subscribers are saying about Eric Schickler Photography & Communication’s written, artistic and photographic posts…..


“Just came across your travelogue on the Osa and Iguana Lodge. I have been to Costa Rica before, but never this far south. I have an opportunity to take a training course at the Iguana Lodge in several months. I have been on the fence….until now. Your description of the area, the lodge, the people and experiences have more than convinced me it will be worth the time and expense. Just had to tell you that your writing style is captivating, your photography is stunning, and your appreciation of Costa Rica is evident. Thanks for your work!”  – Jennifer O.

“You are an amazing artist! I marvel over your images. You truly shine when it comes to the outdoor action shots, but your scenery is gorgeous too. One day I’ll see your name on a coffee table book with huge photographs!”
– Laura Benjamin – Colorado Springs, Colorado

“OK Eric, I’ve just looked through all your photos. The flowers gave me goosebumps; some made my eyes swell with tears. You are an amazing photographer. Then, as if I hadn’t had enough, I read your blogs. I am filled with emotions. I laughed hysterically over the elephant story and then cried over what you wrote about your dear dog.  I’m so glad I had the opportunity to see all of this today – you made my day.”  – Wendy C. in Rochester, New York

I really enjoyed your Costa Rica multi-part blog, and recalled so many good memories. My family members are touched by their cameo roles in your stories!!  Great photos: but that goes without saying! – Jenny C. in Poole, England

“Beautiful pictures captured along side the story, told by a dear friend of mine.  An incredible and brilliant artist who expresses himself in so many different formats. Eric, you bring to so many of us, who are so absorbed in our hectic lives, a moment of tranquility, beauty beyond words that allows us to stop, breath and become aware of how truly blessed we are.  A silent captivating moment, thought, or memory that will remain with each and every one of us. The peace we all wish for in this world.”   – Tracy H.  in Spencerport, New York

“Eric, you are amazing!  Not only for your spectacular photography, but also for your exceptional writing ability. I already feel I’ve been on an African safari and I loved every second of it. Can’t believe you had that wonderful (and yea, very scary) experience. Good luck in all your future endeavors!”  – Marilyn S. in Annandale, Virginia.

“As I read your tale about the elephant in your African tent camp, I was amazed at how skillfully it was assembled, how nice a flow it had and, most importantly, how you kept the reader (me) on the edge of my seat.
