Daryl L. Hunter, author of the "Grand Teton Photography and Field Guide." offers photography tours, and wildlife safaris through the magnificent landscape of Grand Teton and Yellowstone Parks, and to the plethora of wildlife who make northwest Wyoming their home.

          The photography lesson is catered to individual ability and desire. Smart phone photographers welcome. A natural history lesson is also a part of the trip. Non-photographer guests find they have booked a private tour with a portrait photographer who can make them look great in a stunning landscape.

          Daryl also offers tours to other destinations both in the USA and abroad.

I went out for a morning outing with Daryl on a day that turned out to have a serious blizzard.

Laurie you were a trooper and and your great appreciation of plan C was a great relief for me. I love the opportunity to shoot the seldom shot places of Jackson Hole, I am glad you did as well. Blizzards block the view of the mountains; however, they make wildlife and barns look amazing. Big fat snowflakes in front of... More

A tour with Daryl is like an adventure with a good friend, an experience you will talk about long after you go home. He knows his home base, Grand Teton National Park, like the back of his hand, and if you are interested in good photos, he's the guy who knows where the animals will be and when the lighting...

I have been visiting the Grand Tetons for years and Daryl is my first choice when I want a local guide to show me the best hidden spots. He is a consummate professional and truly a joy to be around. If you are interested in seeing areas off the beaten track - he's your best option. Highly recommended!

From the first time until the last, it has always been a pleasure showing you around Jeff. Oh, except for the challenging year of the fires. Although now you also know the Grand Tetons like the back of your own hand, I'm glad you always want to keep the tradition alive. Thanks for the great review, cheers ~ More

My wife and I hired Daryl to take us on a half day photo safari to begin our Jackson Hole week. We both love nature photography and wanted to begin the trip with Daryl so we could learn where to focus our efforts since we only had four days. This turned out to be a good decision and we didn't... More

We had the pleasure of taking a half day photography tour of Grand Teton National Park with Daryl of The Hole Picture Photo Safaris. We met early to be in place for sunrise but the weather did not cooperate so we went in search of wildlife. Daryl's knowledge of the park and patience with our group made the entire tour... More

Daryl-Hunter, Owner at The Hole Picture Photo Safaris, responded to this review

It was fun showing the four of you around Pamela, one of the gifts of the Grand Teton National Park is, when the weather isn't optimum for landscape, it shines for wildlife and vise versa. For this reason, I think it would be much tougher to be a photography guide in a park or region without wildlife for a plan... More

My husband and I spent two days with Daryl. He was invaluable for getting us started in the right places for optimal photo shoots in both parks. Great photo tips, post-processing tips and a wealth of knowledge about so much history surrounding the parks. Thanks, Daryl and we certainly hope to have an opportunity to shoot with you again.

Thanks for the wonderful review Cathy, I enjoy these multiple day tours because I can teach, show and tell so much more comprehensively. I hope your harvest of images is expansive and also hope my lessons of Lightroom bring you crisper images and a smoother work flow. See you next year in Glacier National Park, Banff or Africa :) More

My wife and I spent a "half day" with Daryl in the Tetons as part of her birthday gift. I am a non-photographer and she's somewhere on the intermediate scale.

I went to the Grand Tetons for a photography trip and we were blessed to have Daryl as our guide! He brought us to the most spectacular places to photograph and he has such vast knowledge of wildlife, the Grand Tetons, and Yellowstone. I can't wait to go back and have Daryl as my guide. I can't recommend him enough!!

Thank your very much for the wonderful review, and I'm glad you appreciated the locations and instruction.
