I had the good fortune to accompany Jeff Parker to the Amazon Basin and the Pantanal Regions of Brazil to search for Harpy Eagles and Jaguars. Jeff and his wife Mary O. planned, prepared, and executed all the details that a trip like this require in a professional and customer pleasing way. Traveling with Jeff is like being with a trusted friend, and he shares his encyclopedic knowledge of photograpy with unselfish abandon. I am in the beginner-intermediate class, and I learned so much from him. I would not hesitate to recommend Jeff if you are thinking about taking a photography based trip! For a blog with details of this trip take a look at my blog, MCCURATION.COM.

My husband and I had the pleasure of traveling with Jeff and Mary O to Columbia, South America, this February. This was our first trip with them, but will not be our last. The itinerary, accommodations, guides, and personal attention were top notch. From our pickup at the airport in Cali until the farewell dinner in Medellin, we appreciated the attention to detail and the personal attention they provided. We covered many different regions allowing us to capture so many different birds. Jeff's easygoing, helpful personality, made the experience so valuable, and helped us make the most of each of our photo-op locations. Mary O truly made us feel like family, and provided that"extra touch" for our needs and just for fun. We look forward to our trip next year with them to Patagonia!

Just returned from the Yellowstone in Winter Photo Tour - 2023 and had to let everyone know what a great trip it was. Jeff and Mary O definitely put the client first; great tour operators. After arriving hours late to the airport due to weather delays, they ensured I made it to the hotel the first night so I that I did not miss a day of shooting amazing wildlife in Yellowstone National Park.

Jeff is an outstanding teacher and works hard to provide his students with the best opportunity to get great photos. He is technically excellent but patient with all levels of students. You can be sure your trip was researched in advance and you will improve your skills. By the way, he is also a great photographer.

In June 2022 we made a wonderful trip to Costa Rica with Jeff. He set up an itinerary that covered three different regions of Costa Rica and provided a wealth of excellent opportunities for wildlife photography. Jeff has connections established that allowed us two wonderful and private opportunities to photograph a multitude of hummingbirds.

This tour was well run and organized. We enjoyed the three lodges we stayed at very much and the lodge he selected on the Osa Peninsula was simply amazing. One of the best places we've stayed. The food at the lodges and at the "sodas" we stopped at along the way was consistently great.

Loads of excellent wildlife photo opps - monkeys galore, a fabulous sloth encounter, a wide variety of birds, coatis, and on and on.

Jeff is very personable and willing to provide whatever level of photo assistance desired. We will definitely travel with Jeff again!
