Pat proved to be an excellent guide for a for a photosafari in Yosemite national park. He took me to wonderful locations, many a bit off the beaten track, gave me knowledgeable tuition and many ideas to improve the composition of my photographs. In addition to this he is very good company. Thank you Pat.

Pat was very accommodating of our schedule and interests and shared his deep knowledge on the park and photography throughout our visit. The pickup and drop off at our hotel, light snacks and water for the trip are very nice touches and he is one of the... More

Photo Safari is a stress-free way to experience Yosemite. Each of Pat and Kimberly are excellent tour guides with an abundant knowledge of Yosemite--the terrain, the animals and plants. Pat is an awesome photographer. We visited Yosemite on the 150th anniversary of the park and we were able to see so many of the amazing sights without lines or waits.... More

My wife and I had a great day with Pat - he picked us up at our hotel on time and we made a full day of it. It was exactly what we were looking for. Lots of instruction on the camera, shooting with tripods, etc. plus an amazing tour of all the top spots. I usually shoot on green... More

If we had only one day to experience Yosemite National Park, we would choose Pat at Photo Safari Yosemite to lead the way. Pat was able to navigate the park as only a local could so we didn't waste time stuck in traffic or learning our way around. Whether you want photo advice or simply someone who can lead you... More

Pat did an excellent job of going to places a regular tourist would not know about. He was an excellent guide, but a technical photographer as well. He gave great advise on the use of a digital SLR that made the pictures even better. Well worth the money.

Pat was very knowledgable about every aspect of Yosemite NP from the flora and fauna to the history and geology. He was very accommodating and patient with modeling a tour to fit our exercise level and photography experience, which was limited. Pat was a great teacher in how to shoot the great exposures everyone hopes to come away with. Great... More
