We learned about Jack Bayles Photography from other photographers at the bear-elk site in Yellowstone in September, 2020. There was no doubt who they considered the best guide in the area. We had been looking for Grizzly Bear #399 and her four cubs without success for a couple of days and decided we could use help. Gina arrived early and had us ready to go with coffee and muffins. With her network of contacts, we were getting great pictures a couple of hours later! Because she knows the area and is familiar with this bear, we were always ahead of the “bear jam” of photographers who show up when any animal is seen. In addition to getting us in position for great pictures, Gina was very conscientious about our safety and made sure we were in her truck when the bears walked by very close. She’s careful to cooperate with the Park’s Wildlife Management Volunteers and follows the rules, protecting us, her clients, as well as the animals we admire. We had a great day!! Beyond that, Gina kept us informed about where animals were being seen for the remaining week we were in the Park, so we could find them on our own. She also showed us likely areas where guides are restricted, but we could go. I highly recommend Gina, she provided the opportunity to get the pictures we wanted and continued to take care of us for a week. She really went above and beyond our expectations!

Had two great half days with Jack and Gina around the Teton's. They are ultra knowledgeable about the area, where to grab the best landscape or wildlife photos. Obviously having someone like this to take you to the best spots saves countless time and makes sure you get the shots you were looking for. They met me at my hotel with fresh hot coffee and muffins each morning in time for us to get to some great spots to capture great sunrise shots. We looked for the grizzly 399 and her cubs a few times, but never got lucky unfortunately. We always seemed to arrive where she had been seen just after she disappeared behind a ridge line or trees. They were also very helpful in planning my 3 days in Yellowstone and what not to miss.

Hi Dain, Thank you for coming out with us. I'm sorry we didn't get to see 399 while you were here, but are glad you had a good time with us and saw most of the panoply that Grand Teton and Yellowstone have to offer. Thank you again.

We arranged for a half day with Gina and stretched it into a full day. Gina, through her expertise and network of wildlife watchers got us as close a possible to Bear no. 399 and her cubs, all while keeping us safe. She could anticipate their movements and kept us in the best possible position for photography. The bears actually walked behind our car! Gina visit the park almost every day and knows where to find all different wildlife, as it is her passion. Our day with Gina was a high point of our 3 day trip and she often sent updates on where to find wildlife before and after the day we hired her!

If you want reliable and knowledgeable guides for Grand Teton, Jack and Gina were wonderful. They were prompt on their communications on day 1. They went out of their way to show us the areas and finding wildlife, especially looking for bears. They continued to communicate with us about bears sighting location even after the tour had ended.
