If you are looking for a way to photograph and visit Rocky Mountain National Park with a guide, Yellow Wood is absolutely worth hiring. Some old friends of mine were in town a few months ago. One friend in particular wanted to photograph wildlife in RMNP. I had expected from the reviews that we'd have a good time, but I... More

We travel extensively and have had almost every kind of private tour. By far, Jared is the most knowledgeable, yet approachable, guide we have ever had. He tailored the morning's activities based on our goals, helped our adult daughter hone her photography skills, and allowed us to experience everything from breathtaking sunrise landscapes to grazing wildlife. He allowed us to... More

Wanting something more than the usual Rocky Mountain tour in the back of a Jeep, I booked a custom guided photo safari with Jared at Yellow Wood. This was the last half of March, not quite Winter, not quite Spring. Jared listened well to my photo objectives: wildlife, macros, and landscapes. With those in mind, he put together an interesting,... More

For the same price as a group tour, you can book a completely personalized and customizable private tour with Jared. We went for two tours with him - a 3.5 hour each (a mixed wildlife/photography tour). He has extensive knowledge in everything - the wildlife, geography, history, photography, and random tidbits from various fields (psychology, philosophy, etc.) He provided all... More

I was recently in Colorado and wanted to visit RMNP and make good use of the time. I was looking for a local photographer who could take me to the right spots for wildlife and landscape photography. I write this review to recommend Yellow Wood Guiding owned by Jared who took me for half a day photography session. I really... More

Two of my daughters and I spent an afternoon with Jared. His humor and knowledge of the area as well as the camera equipment made the time very enjoyable. Jared is encouraging and upbeat. Hopefully, on our next trip can be during a different season and Jared can expose us to more. Glad we took the time to book with... More
