Thank you again for the wonderful instruction in Yosemite. I had a great time and learned much more than I expected. You were there early and you left late which, to me, shows you care about both your clients and your photography.
Thanks again. I would love to go out on another shoot with you if I'm ever back in the Yosemite area. I've yet to photograpy Bridalveil Falls or get down by the Merced River so, hopefully, one day I will be back.
Take care and good shooting,
I have most fond memories of my trip to Yosemite this summer inc. the hike the 4 of us took to Lembert Dome. I have already booked my camping reservations for next summer and will check on the activities on your web site come this spring. Thank you for making my needed get-a-way a special time.

I just wanted to give you some excellent feedback on our hike with Dan. We did a full day hike starting from Glacier Point and Dan was our guide. He was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable about all the plants, rock formations, park history, animals etc. The time flew by! Yosemite of course has great scenery----but Dan added so much more to the hike by commenting on the entire environment of the park. He also gave us some great tips for hikes for the next day. Would highly recommend Dan to anyone who wants to get the most out of their Yosemite experience. It exceeded all our expectations!

Hi Catherine & John, I am still in AWE and so emotionally psyched it will most definitely last indefinitely!!!! I want to thank you both so much for all that you did. To reach my Birthday Wish of standing on top of Half Dome is a dream come true. Catherine thank you, I really value the time and dedication you gave to me both on the phone and through e-mails. You helped me prepare both mentally and physically for this hike which made it even more fun. John, Thank you. You were amazing! :) Your compassion and kindness to me and the group through out this hike is so appreciated. John I learned so much more about hiking. Your shared knowledge of techniques to hiking and the breathing techniques were so helpful and will be carried to other hikes I do. AND ....added to this already amazing hike was your knowledge; and your Lyndsey's, of the history, fauna, animals and the environment of Yosemite ...It just enhanced it even more..Soooo, if I were to write a number to rate this experience ;with the high number being the best, I would have to write INFINITY...Catherine & John once again Thank you for this wonderful Lasting memory of " 51 & had some fun"
Best to you both, Marie ( Warren , ME ) 9.10
I am writing to tell you how wonderful our Hike was on the 10th August. Mark was fantastic he really made our day special. He was the perfect guide and we fell very lucky to have had him allocated to our day. He was so knowledgeable & Friendly. Not sure we stopped talking the whole day. The sights were totally amazing and we felt we had a brillant selection of places & views on the hike. Our Photos are fantastic. Mark is a credit to your company and I will be recommending it highly on Trip Advisor. Please pass on our regards to Mark and that we wish him & his family well.
Thanks so much for making our honeymoon extra special.
Yosemite is amazing.
Lisa & Paul ( Essex , UK ) 9.10
We had a wonderful pair of hikes, and wanted to thank you guys again for helping to make our Yosemite vacation so special.
All the best,
Steve, Karen, Everi and Gil ( Oakton , VA ) 9.10
Dear Catherine and John, Thank you for an extraordinary day and a wonderful adventure. We are home now and taking a couple of quiet days before we launch ourselves back into our biking, hiking, running routine. But we have with us the incredible sights, scenes, and memories of the day.
John, Katie loves your "stage" system. She said it was a terrific way to break down the long hike. I loved how you helped us and guided us up and down the cable section. I felt so confident and not at all afraid. Standing in that line, looking out at that scenery, was something else. We are proud of ourselves for our accomplishment, which would have never happened without Yexplore. Thank you for making this possible for us. It's only a question now of ...what's next??
All the best, Mary Louise ( Mill Valley , CA ) 9.10
David, yesterday's hike (friday September 17th) was just fabulous! My friends just could not stop retelling your stories and they just loved the encounter with natural history. Somewhere during that hike, their interest turned into fascination and then into enchantment. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and wisdom and bringing it all to life!
Jim ( New Hope , PA ) 9.10
Hi John--I wanted to thank you for an absolutely amazing trip. Half dome seemed completely doable w/ your guidance. It was awesome. I hope to be in Yosemite next yr w/ my dad and will certainly call you ahead of time.
Tammy (from the OARS trip) ( Cambridge , MA ) 9.10
Dear Catherine and John,
Our guided tour of Taft Point and Sentinal Dome was awesome, thank you. We loved the great information we got along the way and the enjoyable camaraderie along the way.
We were not able to get over to the Meadows, sadly, (or the 4-star restaurant inside the Mobil gas station) -- but we had another great trail run, hiked the four-mile trail up and down, and went to Hetch Hetchy to see the falls there, just before heading out.
Chris and I left the area feeling strongly that we could see ourselves living there -- getting in on a piece of that natural beauty and year-round running/hiking/cycling action! You guys would be the first persons we'd inform.
All the best,
Julie DiMauro & Chris Forti ( New York , NY ) 8.10
Thank you for leading us on such a fantastic hike. I doubt whether we would have made it to the top without your guidance and know we would not have learned as much. I will definitely recommend you to any of my friends looking to make the hike.
Very truly yours,
Michael Repka ( Palo Alto , CA ) 8.10
John - Thanks for a great day. Grant my oldest son is already talking about coming back next year to do half dome
Andus ( Cambridge , MA ) 7.10
Hi Catherine ... I wanted to say thanks for the excellence we experienced in your photo workshops with Walter and James. We had a unique and fortunate experience with perfect weather, and a personalized group. Wow, you can't beat that. Thanks again ... perhaps another time for another workshop.
Jim Radford ( Shoreview , MN ) 5.10
Chuck and I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the tour of Hetch Hetchy on May 17. John was a fantastic guide and we would definitely go on another tour with you if we return to Yosemite .
The sparkling cider and strawberries were a nice surprise and the hats were definitely a hit! What a great 60th birthday surprise. Thank you so much for making our trip to Hetch Hetchy a memorable one. We wish you continued success in the future.
Chuck and Becky McClain ( Cypress , TX )

Best Regards Tom Nezworski Fort Worth, TX 5.10
Dear Catherine and John,
I regret that Nina and I were not able to meet you this past weekend. Nonetheless, I wanted to thank you for helping to make our trip to Yosemite great.
The Photographers that you arranged for our workshops were extremely helpful. Each one had his own take on photography and really helped in my pictures. The workshops I have taken in the past really don't even compare. They were geared around the instructors getting great images and not the students. Sure, they take you to great spots, but that's it..They don't even measure up to the photographers that you have on staff. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were more concerned with the training the students than themselves.
Nina and I really enjoyed our session with Phil. The methods he showed us on taking abstract photographs were really new thing for me, but I have some really unique and fascinated images for my wall.
When we spent time with Walter Flint(two days), I really was skeptical. But, he rubbed off on me and I slowed down considerably. In the past, I would just photograph every little thing I would see. I would take a thousand images and none of them would be great. Some would be Good, but not great. After spending time with Walter, I really slowed down. I didn't take as many images, but they’re great!
Our last workshop with Robb Hirsch was even better. Robb was so helpful in every way possible. He helped me in creating some amazing images that I didn't expect from myself. I learned just as much from him as the other instructors, but in a different way. He spent time teaching me more about composition than I even imagined. And, I am really proud of myself and the images I created!
Once again, thank you for all your help!
Jon and Nina ( Delray Beach , FL ) 5.10
Thanks again for a wonderful experience!
Theo and Marlene ( St. Louis , MO ) 4.10
Thanks John - We had SUCH a great time! Thanks for everything. We all agree it was the best part of our trip. There is so much of that hike that we would have missed if you had not been there with us. You really helped us get the most of our very short time there. Now if I can just keep Cameron ON the trails.... haha - Thanks again. Keep in touch.
Marilyn ( Tampa , FL ) 4.10
thanks very much. It was a great class. Next time I am in Yosemite I will take another from you.
Neal ( Alexandria , VA ) 4.10
Hi Catherine and John
Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our hike out with John yesterday. We would certainly not have attempted such a walk in those conditions without either the equipment or calming influence that John brought. Thanks also for the BNYC restaurant tips!
Steve, Barbara, Anna and Stephie

Thank you so much for such a fun experience last week. Andrew and I had a blast in the rain and the snow on the way to inspiration point ;-) We took your suggestion and made the little trek to Mariposa Grove the next morning, which was wonderful. I think we were the first people in and we didn't see a soul until we were almost back to the parking lot so we felt lucky to have gone early and gotten such a private walk.
Again, cant thank you enough.
(San Diego, CA) 3.10
Thanks very much. It was a great photo class. Walter was extremely helpful. He taught me a lot and I have adopted his mantra of always use a tripod. Please thank him again for me. I really appreciate Catherine’s assistance and patience with me on this trip. If I ever make it back to Yosemite I will sign up for another session.
Neal (Alexandria, VA) 3.10
just wanted to let you and Catherine know I had a great time on the photo tours. Robb was as nice a person as Walter, both very informative of the various aspects of the park. The mornings it snowed I got some great shots, which I'll send to Walter & Robb.
Darren (Ashwood, Australia) 3.10
Hi John - Thanks for the photo - - you really know how to get that whole tree in! And, especially, thanks for our great snowshoe tour. It really made our weekend in Yosemite .
Happy trails. Linda ( Portola Valley , CA ) 1.10
Hi John and Catherine,
I would like to thank you both for making our visit to Yosemite perfect. John as you say, you let Yosemite do the work, it is breathtaking and only nature is in control of that. But without your company we would never of seen the parts of Yosemite that we did while on your hike, and those areas were even more beautiful than the valley.
Catherine, thank you for being patient and so very helpful while I tried to determine which hike to do. The hike on the day was perfect - challenging and rewarding, which is exactly what I was hoping to achieve. The fact that there was snow and ice involved made it more than a hike for us, it was also an adventure.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to experience even more of Yosemite 's beauty than I would of thought possible, it was a highlight of our time in the USA.
Kind regards, Delwyn ( Portland , AUS) 1.10
Hi John, We are finally home in sunny Australia after our USA adventure and whilst we only spent a small amount of time in Yosemite it left the biggest of impressions on us both. Thank you so much to you, David and Lindsay for a great day! We had so much fun and absolutely fell in love with Yosemite . Hope to come back one day soon!
Cheers, Sarah & Adam ( Croudace Bay , Australia ) 12.09
Hi John and Catherine,
Happy New Year! Thanks for making my birthday in Yosemite so special. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our hikes (even Lisa!). The vistas were spectacular, and the naturalist and history talks made scenery even more fulfilling.
Marianne ( Foster City , CA ) 12.09
Thanks very much and Happy New Year. I had an awesome time in Yosemite and really enjoyed the hikes. I'd be pleased to recommend Y Explore to anyone making a trip to the park.
Sean ( UK via Washington , DC ) 12.09
Thanks again for a wonderful, memorable day in Yosemite ! Carolyn, the kids, and I claim it as the most favorite part of our trip. We've got some pretty incredible photos from that day. Again, thanks so much for accommodating us at the last minute. It truly made our trip special. Carolyn wants to come back for a week's stay the next time, and we'll be sure to call you well ahead of time!
Take care and good luck,
Jeff G ( Asheville , NC ) 11.09
We had a great time on our tour, though I realized I need to get in much better shape for our next visit there! You, Catherine and Mark were really great, and we look forward to another tour with you.
Take care- Donetta B. ( Geneva , OH ) 11.09
Thanks John. I had an amazing weekend and learned a ton from my time with Walter. He was really good and I had a good time. I will definitely be back up again! I appreciate you guys being so flexible with rescheduling.
Larry ( San Francisco ,CA 11.09)
I can't believe a week has passed since the end of our visit to Yosemite ! I have spent a lot of that time working with all the photos I took last week...I was like a kid in a candy store!
I want to let you know how much I enjoyed the experience of meeting and learning from Walter. My expectations were well exceeded - he provided the insight, experience and technical expertise to validate many of the technical approaches I was taking that were 'professional'; and suggest many new ones I had not adopted. The most important ones to me were selecting the correct aperture for a particular photo and effectively using the histogram.
Walter's approach to composition is powerful. His examples challenge me to take more time to think about what I want to convey in my photographs and then be diligent in setting up my equipment to capture that image. His ability to 'see' the image technically and artistically before he sets up his equipment inspires me to become more educated and proficient about many aspects of photography.
This experience has really opened my eyes. I felt like I was 'Grasshopper' and Walter was 'Master Po' from the Kung Fu TV series! What a wonderful day I had...
Catherine, I also want you to know how effective you have been through the process of securing and coordinating my appointment with Y Explore. As the 'face' of the organization you provide an exceptional blend of knowledge, skill, and customer concern. I always felt secure that you had my interests at heart and that you were being diligent in orchestrating a memorable experience for me - and what a job you did!
Thanks to you and Walter!
Jim S. ( San Jose , CA ) 10.09
Thank you very much for guiding us up Half Dome we had a fantastic day that we will never forget. We really valued having both yourself and Joe there, it was great to learn more about the local area and wildlife. We also very much appreciated the toast on the top. It was a lovely gesture. Hopefully one day we will be able to return and do some other hikes with you!
Chloe and Chris ( Cheshire , UK ) 10.09
Thank you for an excellent and very memorable adventure. We had a great time and the hike with you was really one of the highlights of our trip! I still can't believe that we couldn't see any climbers on El Capitan until you pointed them out! And I am still very proud that I dared to look over the edge facing Yosemite Valley ;-) The rest of our trip was also very nice and I don't think it will take too long before we visit CA again!
Mia and Per ( Luxembourg ) 9.09
John- Thanks so much to you and Catherine for making our trip to Yosemite so very memorable. We had a terrific time on our hike with you. Your extensive knowledge of the area and delightful disposition made it the highlight of our trip. I hope next time we come back to explore Yosemite we will be able to graduate to the next hiking level!
All the best,
Janice Vitale ( Washington , DC ) 9.09
I speak on behalf of Fi and Jess when I say that we had one of the best days of our lives when we did the hike in Yosemite. We weren’t expecting the views to be so spectacular and it really was a once in a lifetime experience. We all felt that we gained lots of knowledge about the history of the National Park and the wildlife within it. When we got back we showed our families the photos and passed on some of that knowledge. We’ve also both decided we loved California so much that we’ll definitely be back there one day, hopefully in the not too distant future. When we do return we want to come back to Yosemite with you guys and who knows, maybe we’ll do Half Dome?!?!
It was great to meet you and was brilliant to have a tour guide who was so friendly and who we could relate to. I’ve got to say though I’m extremely jealous as I sit at my desk in an office block in cold, cloudy Manchester when you’ll probably be heading off for a trek in a few hours time. Ah well, once again thanks for such a good time, all the memories and I’m sure we’ll be seeing you again one day.
Fi, Jess & Anthony ( Cheshire , UK ) 9.09
We wanted to take the time to mention that we had a really outstanding experience with Walter Flint this past weekend. He really took time to learn what our priorities and styles are and what we could benefit from the most. He also made sure we understood the beauty of Yosemite from the perspective of an insider.
One the first day, my wife started with minimal knowledge of how to operate all the numerous settings on the camera, but Walter's explanation of the 3 basic rules of the camera setting allowed her to maneuver her SLR on her own. At the same time, he took the time to explain to both of us the more artistic aspects of photography once we had the technical part understood.
The second day in the Valley, we started at 3pm and spent time learning to see things differently and understand how the camera might interpret them. Also, Walter made it a point to help us notice things that we might not have noticed before from a photographic standpoint. He also helped us identify the differences in our styles and how they complement each other.
With all that said, we can only tell you that we absolutely enjoyed every minute spent working with Walter and we definitely look forward to coming back.
Carlos & Olga ( Irvine , CA ) 9.09
My friend Anthony and I had a great time hiking to May Lake and up the summit of Mt. Hoffman last week. John did a terrific job as guide and got me up to the top (which I wasn’t expecting to do!). I will definitely recommend your group to friends.
Thanks again for a memorable hike.
Jack P ( Houston , TX ) 8.09
Dear John and Catherine:
I wanted to extend my gratitude to you both for this incredible Birthday adventure. It was extremely empowering to get to the top of that dome. Thank you!
I wish you both all the best in your business venture. I admire what you do, and I have certainly recommended you when talking to family and friends. Thank you once again for your time, professionalism, and quality customer services.
Linda C ( Campbell , CA ) 8.09
We wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous hike with David Lukas. He provided our family with a lot of information about Yosemite Valley and the Sierras, and he made the expedition very enjoyable for every member of our family. He really connected with each of our kids, and was very attuned to what we wanted to get out of the time that we were spending with him. We hope to return to the Valley again soon, and explore other parts with your team.
Steve K ( Encino , CA ) 8.09
We enjoyed our trip very much and the experience will remain in our memories! Robb was great, friendly and highly qualified. We were so lucky to have had him as our guide.
Dominique ( Lucerne , Switzerland ) 8.09
I just wanted to say thanks soooo much to you, John and Alexa. We had a great time today. It was a great experience and they had infinite patience. My son, Jesse, said John was "super-great" which in kidspeak is the ultimate compliment. From the initial booking to the follow up to the actual hike, you guys are truly a first class organization. You have big fans in L.A. Thanks, again!
All my best,
Stewart ( Manhattan Beach , CA ) 8.09
I’d liked to thank you for the wonderful experience my family had at Yosemite with your guide David Lukas. It was our first time at the park and we did a family hike with David to Sentinel Dome and Taft Point. David was very informative and kept my kids engaged in the experience. I was worried traveling with 3 kids who are 16, 13, and 11. On the way up to meeting place there was a bit of pessimism coming from them but all I heard during and after the hike was how much they were enjoying themselves. It was a beautiful day at Yosemite – we came out with many great pictures and memories. Thank you again for a great time in Yosemite .
Janet and Scott S ( Shoreham , NY ) 7.09
John, I wanted to say how much we appreciated your two days of great hikes, wisdom, camaraderie, kindness on starting times and more!
Peter E ( Alexandria , VA ) 7.09
Back home now after a great holiday. We had a brilliant two weeks and for me the Y Explore Hike with you was the highlight of the whole holiday. Thanks & hoping to visit Yosemite again at some future date!
John ( Abingdon , UK ) 7.09
John, thanks we had a great trip. We greatly appreciated the hike, everyone had a great time.
Jkt ( Atlanta , GA ) 7.09
Thanks for the great photo session at Yosemite - I learnt a lot.
Andrew ( AUSTRALIA ) 7.09
It's Tuesday, five days after our Half Dome hike and I'm still on a high. Our hike was amazing and something I will never forget. I know that your encouragement, support, and knowledge are the reasons that I made it to the top. From my first phone call to you and Catherine, I felt confident that I was in the right hands. Thank you so much for a life long experience. Gary P (Menlo Park , CA) 7.09
We miss Yosemite! Thank you again for a fabulous day. Our kids are still talking about it to their friends.
Our best to your sweet family,
Sarah, Gary & Family ( Austin , TX ) 6.09
I want to express a very big thank you to Catherine DeGrazio for being so great with the information and registration and follow-up including the phone message in our lodge room the day before the session with Walter Flint. Impressive service and a great attitude!
Now the main event, my (our) time with Walter Flint…great. Simply great! Nothing but praise. He's a good teacher, to be sure, but also a great guy and fun to spend time with while doing some serious learning. Honestly if we had more time at Yosemite after the first session, I would have booked another one. No hesitation.
I would highly recommend the program to anyone keen on photography and wanting to take it to the next level at a fabulous location and with a fun, imaginative, professional photographer, Walter.
I can't wait to get back--my wife, Khun Ben, wants to go back in the winter (and this from someone that is from Thailand where it is always tropical:-)).
Best Regards from Vietnam,
I was not really sure what to expect in Yosemite , but it turned out to be an amazing introduction and I left the experience moved by what I saw and learned. I feel encouraged to learn more about Leave No Trace and will continue to venture outdoors and remember to notice the little things (not just the big ones) that make our natural treasures special .Thanks for everything! Keep in touch!
Chris S ( Richmond , VA ) 6.09
I had a great time working with Walter. He was very professional and helpful. I learned a lot from him, and picked up many valuable pointers. He was a pleasure to work with, and he also went out of his way to make my wife feel welcome during the photo shoot. If we make it back to the Yosemite area again I would definitely look to do another photography tour with Y Explore.
As a side note, Catherine was very helpful in setting up the trip. She helped me with her explanations of the various tours, and we exceptionally courteous. All in all – you guys seem to be doing a great job.
Greg ( Houston , TX ) 6.09
I wanted to thank you and James again for a great time on our 3 days of hiking in Yosemite. I really appreciated your knowledge of the area and the help you provided us along the way to complete the hikes--particularly the Half Dome hike on Saturday. I know that I could have not made it to the top without your help. I would've taken one look at those chains and the crowd on them and decided that it wasn't for me. Thanks to you, I can feel proud that I managed to get up there (and back down again!).
Thanks again. We would definitely recommend your company to any of our friends interested in doing something similar.
Kelly C ( Washington ) 6.09
Thank you so much for making the hike such a wonderful experience for my boys and me. From the initial call to Catherine for information to John's final handshake it couldn't have been more perfect. You both run your business so professionally and your rating on Trip Advisor as the No.1 thing to do at Yosemite is right on.
Our entire 10 day trip was amazing. It included a bike ride across the Golden Gate bridge, SF Giant games, Cirque KA, and golf at beautiful courses in LV but none of these come close to the hike to see the falls. It was breathtaking and we will never forget it.
John, the boys really thought the world of you. Thank you for guiding us. How neat for them to see how people get to where they are in their lives - to start out on Wall Street and end up CEO of Y Explore. It lets them see that they can do anything - the world is theirs.
Oh, Alexa was wonderful. She was extremely personable and we enjoyed talking with her. Thank you for everything.
Laura S (CT) 6/09
I just wanted to thank you for the great hike you took us on. Since I am not in really excellent shape, I wasn't sure that I would be able to do it, yet the trails you took us on, while challenging, were still manageable, fun, and beautiful. I had a great time and I am most certainly glad that I did it. Also, listening to your take on all those movies was great as well, yet I have to say the Caddyshack is still my favorite funny movie! Thank you very much.
Chris S (CT) 6/09
We just wanted to thank you for the amazing trek up to the top of half dome. I've been to Yosemite before, but have not experienced the Valley in such a personal way. Your knowledge was what I wanted to hear, as I felt I learned more about the history and monuments with you present. I felt your personality was just right for our group and thank you for getting us to the top safely.
Both Misha and I talked many times about how, in the beginning of the trek, it feels like you don't need a guide, but as you move along over the hours ahead, it becomes clear that the guide is there to push his wisdom of the climb onto the clients, who really don't get how important it may be to keep moving before the cables get too backed up. More importantly, we felt like you really stepped up by having us focus on the cable climb and to stay together. Your coaching made us stay focused and got us to the top safely. Thank you again.
David B and Misha L (WA) 5/09
First of all, we'd like to thank both you and John for everything you've done for us.
About the hiking, it was one of the most spectacular things we've done. Certainly the high point of our entire trip. Besides that, all the help that you gave us regarding restaurants, massage, tips in general. It was really wonderful. Thanks!
Luis and Ana (Brasil) 5/09
Overall, we thought the experience was excellent - Next time (and we hope there will be one), we'd go for something further off the normal (easily accessible) trekking route.
Richard and Melany ( UK ) 5/09
Thanks, John. We had an incredible day with you and Christelle. Thank you for everything, we'll always remember this as an extraordinary day. Give our best to Catherine and Christelle, you were all so accommodating. Also, we stopped in Sonora for dinner at the restaurant (Diamondback) you and Christelle suggested, it was perfect.
Madonna B (NY) 4/09
We thoroughly enjoyed our day and David Lukas was extremely informative and having spent the day before exploring the valley the subsequent walk gave us more insight into the wildlife and geology of the area. We would highly recommend your efficient service to future visitors of Yosemite.
Charlie W ( UK ) 4/09
John we had a great time! You guys were great and we had a blast. Hope we make it back again next year! We loved the hike and all of Yosemite!
Karen (VA) 4/09
Thanks for the photo session. It was great. I learned a lot of stuff that I will carry with me for ages.
Andrei D. (NY) 4/09
Hi John and Catherine,
We are back home now. We had a wonderful time today! We really appreciated the personalized and attentive tour. It was nice not to be rushed and to be able to take the tour at the pace which Nathey ended up setting. Zeb is a great guy! We hope we have a chance to take another tour sometime with you again. Please keep up the great work!
Thank you again,
Dan, Hiromi and Nathey M (CA) 3/09
Hi Catherine - I just wanted to thank you and John for a lovely trip to Yosemite .
I really had fun on the snowshoe, and Philip really enjoyed the Photography with Evan. I am home, and already missing it. I appreciate all your help, and will recommend yexplore to anyone heading your way.
Sara (CA) 2/09
The trip was nothing short of amazing. Weather, Phil and Yosemite created quite an experience. Phil is a fountain of knowledge and was really fun to just try and see Yosemite as he does. Photography has three main levels (well, so far for me anyways after 10 years of doing it) first is figuring out your camera, 2 nd is figuring out what to shoot, third is figuring out what to shoot given the light, pattern, composition and 40 million other factors. Phil is so far down the 3 rd path that I was in awe of how he could just walk by what I thought were photo opportunities because he knew it wouldn’t work. It was great to just learn by osmosis. Thanks again.
Richard B (FL) 2/20/09
A great day and the highlight of a fantastic holiday...so nice to be back to the doom and gloom :) Pretty sure we'll see you again one day. Thanks again for a great day and experience.
Jon A ( UK ) 1/27/08
I enjoyed my session with Walter. I found Walter to be helpful, instructive and definitely fell I've improved on my skills. I have much to learn and Walter was another important step in my journey. Thank you.
