My wife and I took this tour in early September 2016. We were lucky enough to have Eva as our guide. She was very helpful with her photo tips and was a fascinating person to speak with. I would highly recommend this tour.

We went on this tour as part of a Princess cruise tour in the Denali area. We did an evening tour and ended up with Terry. There were 3 of us - he limits groups to 4. Nice, nice guy who understands photography and cameras and has a gift of being able to share his knowledge. He helped all three... More

Terry demonstrated a wide knowledge base of different cameras and their operation. He is able to teach in a very understandable way, and is a great source of information. I know I will be taking pictures differently from now on!

Mollie's experience and knowledge were very evident; the fact she is a writer seems to complement to her photography skills. She knows the area well and was able to take us to some great locations, even on a day when it was raining much of the time. Professional, knowledgeable and a joy to work with. We highly recommend!!

On our trip to Denali I booked a photo tour with Terry Boyd Photography Tours and Mollie Foster. Mollie was a great guide. The group was myself, an experienced photographer, and a number of newer photographers. Mollie was great with people of all levels, mentoring the new photographers and leveraging my skills in a highly participatory way. She took us... More

Terry Boyd did a super job of driving a small group of just two through several of his Denali "hot spots"! I was with one other attendee and despite booking just evening before, Terry was ready bright and early! His extensive experience and knowledge of the Denali area clearly enabled us to make best use of the almost four hours.... More

There are so many nice spots and locations around Denali, and great opportunities to shoot. That said, I truly recommend to take this photo tour and preferably ask for Mollie as your guide. She helped me improve in my techniques, offered valuable advices, and drove us in locations I would never been by myself. A great way to explore Denali... More

We booked a tour with Terry Boyd Photography Tours while in Denali. Our guide was Mollie Foster, a local photographer and writer taking us to some of her favorite locations . What could possibly be better? The weather was glorious, Mollie's enthusiasm was infectious, and the subject matter was incredible. She tailored the day to our skill level and the... More

My cousin and I booked this tour in advance and Molly Foster was our guide. We booked the tour through Princess Cruises as part of our land/sea tour. The tour was titled "Denali Photography Workshop". The group consisted of a total of 4 people, myself included, all with a wide variety of photographic skills, knowledge, and equipment. Unfortunately, the weather... More

I signed up for this photography tour of the Denali National Park area thinking I would be going out with Terry Boyd. I was initially disappointed that he said another photographer would be leading the tour I was assigned. That disappointment faded when I met Eva though. She was so welcoming and enthusiastic. There were 3 other people who joined... More
