I was so pleased to learn much more about the area, finding great new spots to photograph. The vehicle was the nicest I've seen. Paul couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. It was just what I was looking for.

Thank you for your review. It was my pleasure sharing a winter morning in Grand Teton National Park with you. My Mercedes Sprinter Van is unique as I designed it from the inside out with both the photographer and causal visitor in mind offering captain chair seating with windows for each guest and a convertible top. Landscape vistas was the focus on our morning where we stopped at some of my favorite lessor known locations that offer a unique and fresh view of the unparalleled mountain views. I look forward to your next visit. --Paul

We requested a wildlife photography tour and what we got was way better. Paul postponed the date so that we would have ideal weather conditions. He picked us up at our hotel punctually at 6.30 so that we could watch the dawn advance down the Tetons. This Alpen glow was spectacular and beyond imagination. The colours and contrast were amazing. My photos will be like calendar scenes, or better.
This could only be the case because Paul is a dedicated and experienced photographer.
He arranged for us to stop where the animals could be seen at best advantage with a vista behind.
Really worth the money, an unforgettable day.

There are many advantages to booking a guide as compared to booking a company and personalized service and flexibility are two good reasons. Im so happy I was able to reschedule your tour to accommodate your group. Winter in Grand Teton National Park offers some of the best landscape photography and viewing of the year with early morning alpenglow one of the highlights, and we had a perfect sunrise on this particular morning. Thank you for sharing your experience with other Trip Advisor readers and for allowing me to share this part of your journey. --Paul

Thanks Steve for taking the time to share your experience, it was my pleasure sharing Grand Teton National Park with the two of you. It was extra fun to share and enjoy the day with folks that live in the area, and to find wildlife and new landscape vistas. Winter is a special time of year when we get to see the park without the crowds. I wish you both a Happy New Year. --Paul

We took our Photo Safari with Paul on Dec., 6 2013. Record setting -0 bitter cold!!! No problem. Paul picked us up in a cozy, warm, customized van with hot coffee and muffins to die for. Right out of the gate we pulled up on a small herd of moose, who Paul knew individually. Got some great close ups and moved on a short distance to spot a large buffalo herd grazing in the distance with the mountains looming beyond. Another great photo shoot!! He then took us for a spin by Mormon Row for the most stunning shots of the barns. The Tetons were shrouded in soft grey clouds and the barns sat in silent repose on the pristine white frozen landscape. A veiled sun lit this bitter cold morning scene with a luminous, silver light softening the sharpness of icy breath. It was truly a moment of grace to stand in view of that barn and be part of that place for those brief heartbeats in time. That will remain with me forever. For the next leg of the trip, Paul took us deeper into the park up to Signal Mountain Lodge where he stopped to point out tracks along road as evidence of wolf, mountain lion and bear activity. We didn't spot any, but they left behind some very clear prints. Amazing!!! The tour continued back to the elk refuge where we encountered a herd of elk and some bighorn sheep who came looking to take a lick or two of salt off our rear bumper. Tons of fantastic photo ops!!! Paul educated us, guided us and provided additional cameras to allow us the best close ups we could possibly get. He exceeded every expectation. A professional in every way, Paul is fun, loves what he does and has a deep connection to the landscape and it's wild inhabitants. I am rebooking for another tour in 2014......D.M. Anderson

We had a great time on our safari with Paul. We went on the trip our first day and he showed us all the great spots in Teton, which we were able to take advantage of them the rest of the week. Made our trip.
