"I booked a private photo safari for my teen son thinking that the guide would simply take us to scenic spots - I was very pleasantly surprised when our tour guide, Josh, spent about 30 minutes before starting the tour on just an easy to understand lesson on photography including camera components and how to make adjustments to exposure, photo composition, etc. I was fascinated but my photography-buff son really soaked in all the info before we headed out. Josh is a photography professor at the local university - he is very personable and kind, and he spent a great deal of time and care with us. He was clearly interested that my son have a great experience, and I am extremely grateful for his time and expertise. We all loved the tour, not just my son, and all ended up learning from Josh. Thank you again!” – Elizabeth C.
"As there were no group tours available in October, I did a 4 hour private tour w/ Howie. He was very open minded and accommodated all of my wishes! We made several stops along Shore Road and also to Jesup Path so I could photograph the fall foliage. It wasn't so much the pictures I took that I enjoyed but the great advice and critiques he provided along the way. I feel much more comfortable using my camera and would recommend him highly. It was a relaxing trip and a great way to see the park!" – JoJo
