Carl was an excellent guide. Provided useful tips for how to take the best photos. I'm a beginner with photography so it was very helpful. We did both the sunrise and sunset tours, and I'm very happy with how my photos turned out thanks to the help from Carl.

We traveled to Monument Valley to see the amazing rock formations and incredible skies, night and day. I am an avid photographer and the Phillips Photography tour seemed to be a good fit for our interests. We chose a sunrise tour that actually gave us the opportunity to see the valley during the night pre-sunrise (amazing stars) and the early hours of sunrise and the early morning hours as well. Our guide was Carl Phillips. Both my wife and I can’t say enough positive about this tour and about Carl. Carl was friendly and absolutely perfect for advising where to stand, which direction to look and even what focal length would best capture the view. He was also engaging with my wife, (not a photographer) revealing really interesting facts about the place. Our strongest recommendation would be to go to monument valley and select one of Phillips Photography Tours for an unforgettable experience! Take your camera and tripod with as wide angle a lens as you can get and trust Carl to take absolutely great care of you and show you spectacular sights! If there was a way to give him a higher rating, we would do it.

Our group of 3 people all thought the sunset tour of Monument Valley was wonderful. The leader was Carlos and we appreciate that the groups are kept small, if not private as ours was. Plus it was in an enclosed vehicle as opposed to the open air type of vehicle and took roads far back in the park where no public access is allowed. He offered personal knowledge and bits of Navajo culture along with photographic tips to "get the best shot". He followed a path to get the best light on the formations, while explaining them and did not rush us taking photos. We totally enjoyed the experience and recommend this tour, even if you are not a photographer. We wished we could have taken the sunrise tour, but sunset was a great second choice.

I booked a sunrise and sunset photography tour with Carl & Carlos Phillips Photography Tours at Monument Valley and could not have been more satisfied. Carl knows Monument Valley like the back of his hand and better yet knows where to be at the right time to capture "good" light. Additionally, Carl is an accomplished photographer and knows different cameras and the settings needed to capture unique compositions. Lastly, Carl is patient, friendly and a pleasure to be around.
