My friend and I did a morning private wildlife/photography trip with Sean Beckett from TSS. It was terrific. Sean, a biologist, was knowledgeable about the wildlife, and a photographer to boot. When I booked the trip, I mentioned that my friend was a serious, though amateur, photographer, and was bringing a number of lenses up to 600mm. TSS immediately booked... More

Sean rules. He can even order up perfect weather. He has the eyes of an eagle and the heart of a naturalist. He can drive well in crowded venues and answer the trickiest q with humour and substance.

Four-hour guided wildlife expedition with Sarah, a biologist with Teton Science Schools, was better than we'd dreamed. She knew all the best spots in the Grand Tetons and enabled us to see moose, elk, bison, a black bear, a pronghorn, and beavers. And she made the whole experience tons of fun. Highest recommendation for this nonprofit organization!!

We were able to get as close as safely possible. To enhance our sightings Jean, a biologist, and Kevin, a botanist, set up scopes to... More

Our Expedition was June 23, 2014 6:00 am. Dawson Smith picked us up in a very comfortable van at our resort and treated us like he'd known us all his life.

Thank you for you praise for Dawson and our Wildlife Expeditions program. It always amazes me that we can fit so much wildlife viewing, natural history exploration and wild flower gazing in a 4 hour Sunrise or Sunset Expedition. Dawson is a distinguished naturalist with a diverse background of experiences. Thank you for sharing your images. - Jared Baecker More

During the first few days of our vacation, we didn't see a lot of unusual wildlife. Like moose, buffalo, elk, etc. So we took this four hour trip hoping to see some wildlife.It was just the three of us and our guide Sean,it made it a lot more personal, and not rushed. Almost right away we saw a moose. Sean... More

Biologist Sarah Ernst made this trip fantastic! Well the wolves, bears, and other wildlife we viewed did as well :), but without her we wouldn't have seen a thing.
