I will provide you with a unique opportunity to explore the unparalleled scenery and wildlife surrounding Jackson Hole. Grizzly and black bears, moose, elk, mule deer, bison, pronghorn, eagles and wolves are just some of the wildlife we often experience. With my visual and ethical appreciation for the environment I' am anxious to share my passion with all my guests. I guarantee I will be your guide. I offer over 39 years of experience in seeking out the elusive wildlife that inhabits the region and extensive knowledge on the best locations to view and photograph the picturesque surroundings of Grand Teton National Park. I offer only one Safari Tour per day and each tour is individually customized. All tours include fresh morning glory breakfast muffins, refreshments and of course the use of high quality Nikon binoculars, and Swarovski spotting scopes, as well as tripods and rain-gear. Please be sure to check out the rest, and see why people choose Paul Martin's Photo Safaris. I sincerely hope I can be part of your amazing Jackson Hole adventure! --Paul « less

Paul is the consummate professional and delivers a very personable service tailored to what his client wants. Obviously, he is incredibly knowledgeable on the area and has a really engaging and relaxed manner.

My wife and I recently enjoyed a morning photo safari with Paul Martin in the Jackson, WY area. Paul met us where we were in our skill level and advanced us both, while at the same time taking us to the most astounding scenic views of the area. He was a delightful and considerate host, from providing a splendid van... More

I went on a sunrise photo safari with Paul on January 19 and it exceeded my expectations. As a first time visitor to Jackson Hole, I was looking to hire a photographer with a vast knowledge of the area, and the experience to help me maximize my time. I found both - and much more - in Paul. His expertise... More

I can't recommend Paul highly enough. He was extremely generous in every way. He loaned me his lenses and tripods, where others would charge a fee. He did not make us go out on the day we had booked in advance because the weather would have led to a less than ideal trip. In everything he did, his goal was... More

There is a photographer I all of us, phone cameras and point-and-shoot cameras are getting better everyday offering everyone the opportunity to capture great photos and memories. And of course there are those who are more serious about their photos with the advances in DSLR cameras. Since 1974 I have been photographing the landscapes and wildlife of Grand Teton National...

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.
