About The Hole Picture Photo Safaris
Daryl L. Hunter, author of the "Grand Teton Photography and Field Guide." offers landscape photography/wildlife safaris through the magnificent landscape of Grand Teton National Park and to the plethora of wildlife who make northwest Wyoming their home. The photography lesson is catered to individual ability and desire. For the novice, Daryl cuts to the chase with several shortcuts that slices through the obscure tech stuff to make the complex understandable; this evidenced in many of the reviews. Smart phone photographers are welcome. A natural history lesson is also a part of the trip as Daryl was an interpretive guide long before there was a market for photography tours. Jackson Hole is a lot more than beautiful photos; 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. Daryl’s reviews speak for themselves.

Can't say enough good things about our time with Daryl. He is a down to earth guy who knows his stuff. He went way out of his way to help us get the shots we wanted. We're already planning another trip back to the Grand Tetons so we can have another photography workshop with him. Worth every penny!

This is my 2nd tour with The Hole Picture photo safaris. I had a 2 day tour with Daryl June/4-5 2020. He is very knowledgeable about photography and the area. He knows where the good landscape shots are and where to find animals. I got many good photos with his help and learned about the history of the area. We saw #399 the famous grizzly with her 4 cubs which was a highlight. A beautiful area. Darryl made the trip a lot of fun. Highly recommend!

Deborah, it was so nice showing you around again, your photo harvest looks awesome. I'm so glad we got a second shot at Grizzly 399, since the started inventorying grizzlies, this is only the eleventh sow that has produced triplets. Thanks for the great review - until the next time - cheers.

I have found Daryl very good to deal with. We were all set to travel to Jackson Hole from New Zealand when my CEO cancelled all international flights due to COVID-19 fears. We contacted Daryl straight away and he immediately refunded our deposit - no questions asked. I would gladly rebook with him again in the future.

Looking forward to when you can make it out in better times Robert. Sometimes things are out of our control and pandemics certainly are at the top of that list. If I ever heard a good reason to cancel this is it. Until the next time - Cheers

This was the first time we have ever been to The Tetons and Yellowstone area. I love photography and knew there would be lots of great things to see but how would I find them. I decided to book a tour with Daryl Hunter. That was the best decision I could have made. He took us to many remarkable views and found many animals to photograph. His knowledge of the history and natural ecosystems was excellent. I was able to learn many new ways to use my camera and new things to try in post production. With the crystal blue sky and the snow we were able to take many great memories back home to North Carolina.

Dale it was pleasure to show you two around during your escape from Florida. It is so much fun for me to show people a winter of sun and sand isn't always the best decision. Glad I could show you a few things and share our wildlife and landscape. Hope to see you out here in June for wildflower season. Cheers.

This was my second tour with “The Hole Picture...”. This time my wife and I were led by Daryl Hunter on two half day Safaris in the Grand Tetons. This year we were led to new perspectives of the Mormon Barns, the “exact” spot to photograph from the Snake River Overlook, a a dawn photo op of a group of Elk, and a long sought trip to Schawbacher’s landing. All in all a trip I plan to repeat and highly recommend.

It was so good having you along again Richard, happy I could show you some fresh horizons for Grand Teton National Park. It is always a nice challenge to find fresh stuff for those of you who have made Jackson Hole a regular destination. Until the next time.
