“One of a kind experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Pat is an excellent photo guide, and great company to boot! He really knows his stuff. He really cares about and loves what he does, and it rubs off. I was so impressed by his knowledge of the park...he has his photo spots down to times of the day, and he gives excellent advice about capturing the parks beauty. While we were there at the end of the day the clouds parted over Bridal Veil Falls and I got some magical shots. We even got to shoot it from 2 different spots! Yosemite is one of the most amazing places in the world, and Pat helped me make the most of my day there; I just wish I had time to stay another day! I will definitely consider going on safari with Pat again when I find time to visit Yosemite again. Highly recommended. You wont find a more knowledgeable and friendly guide anywhere else!

“Photo Safari in Yosemite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

I spent almost 2 weeks on vacation in California and Nevada from Lake Tahoe to Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon NPs. One of the most memorable moments was my photo Safari in Yosemite with Pat Althizer. Great company, excellent advises, basically a lot of fun for everyone who loves photography. Highly recommended experience.

“Yosemite Done Right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

Pat is a consummate professional photographer, guide, and story teller. He made our trip to Yosemite not only enjoyable but took us to locations where we took stunning pictures, often times with Pat's advise on how to capture that perfect picture.

Photo Safari Yosemite is for both the novice and and the advanced photographer wishing to see and photograph Yosemite with the added bonus of Pat's personal touch.

“An outstanding guide, photographer, and host. Well worth the price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

I'm a professional photographer (www.FriedmanArchives.com), and nothing makes a good picture by being at the right place when the light is good. Pat knows Yosemite intimately and has saved me weeks of hunting and hours of research by just showing me all the picturesque shots at the best times of day. But he also is a helpful and non-intimidating photography tutor if you're not so familiar with your camera. Me and my wife found Pat to be friendly, prepared, extremely knowledgeable, and a wonderful host. I made the most of my trip (= got more great pictures) than I would have on my own, and the price he charges is a tremendous value for the knowledge he provides. Four thumbs up!
