We took the Photo Safari Tour from Old Faithful Inn and had a GREAT experience! You are guided by a professional photographer. We only had point and shoot and iphone cameras. Some of the others on the tour had good cameras, multiple lenses and tripods. Our guide was Barrrett Hedges, Grand Champion Winner of the National Geographic 2010 Wildlife Photo Contest out of 14,000 entries. Barrett is just 26 years old and has incredible experience and education in wildlife photography. He is a really fun guy and a great storyteller. Check out his website bearheadphoto.com, and fall in love with his work like we did.
This tour gets you up and out before all the crowds are even awake. You will have been to alot of the beautiful sights (both wildlife and scenic) before they get crowded when there is lovely mist and the sky is changing with the rising sun. Then you are back at 11 am. in time for a nice lunch at The Old Faithful Cafeteria. Book this tour with the xanterra phone number for Yellowstone Lodging.
