My wife and I toured with Jared 2-14-14 and had a great experience. His knowledge is second to none and his philosophy is the same. He is all about making you comfortable and giving you precisely what you want and need. We could not come up with a question about the tour or cameras that stumped him. He knew all... More

My wife and I did 2 four hour sessions with Jared; we thoroughly enjoyed our time. You will not find someone with Jared's skill set and knowledge in the area; he is an excellent teacher of photography (camera settings, composition, exposure), he has a sold base of knowledge about cameras (Nikon, Canon, etc.) and he is very knowledgeable about the...

Just finished a photo tour with Jared today. He is very knowledgeable and well versed in photography and with the local RMNP area. Although the weather wasn't very cooperative this AM, I still ended up with some great pics and a head full of knowledge. My family enjoyed the trip as well. We will definitely be looking up Jared again... More

I took a 4-hour photography safari with Jared in March, and not only did I get some great photos then, I still think about his lessons every time I take photos. I've taken a number of photography classes and none of them has been as practical and memorable as this experience. Even the videos on his website are more useful... More

I did a day tour with Jared at Rocky Mountain National Park. I went solo in the morning, and my wife joined in the afternoon. Jared is a great teacher. I learned so much about my camera in one day, and have used many of the skills he taught me ever since, which has really improved the quality of my... More

Going with Jared is like taking a Master class about Rocky Mountain National Park. He is a FABULOUS explainer and presenter. The added bonus is that your photography skills improve exponentially. The highlight of our trip for the second year in a row!

My husband and I met with Jared at what turned out to be the beginning of the flooding rains in Colorado. Our day was supposed to include sunrise and sunset pictures, but instead turned into a rainy, gloomy day with no sun in sight. Jared, however, turned what could have been a disappointing day into one of finding beauty in... More

Jared certainly lived up to the great reviews found here! I am an experienced nature photographer, while my wife has just recently begun using an SLR. Jared was able to provide excellent tips/instruction to both of us, with the right amount of detail for each. We both feel much more comfortable/knowledgeable in using our cameras and gear after spending a... More

It was an early start but we enjoyed every minute of it. Jared showed us the best spots to enjoy sun rise and provided a lot of information about the Rocky Mountains and other National Parks as well. My boyfriend, who knows a lot about photography, learned a few things as well on how to shoot the best shots. We... More

While visiting in Denver, we only had one day to go to the Rocky Mountains National Park. We found this guide, that takes you on a private tour through the National Park in his comfortable SUV. During the trip, where we out to find some wildlife, he told us all about the park, it's ecosystem, the animals that lives there... More
