Richly experienced Photography Guides focus on offering expert advice while shooting within natural settings. We outfit every tour with communication devices, navigation tools, and first aid equipment. Certain regions of the park are only open seasonally. We will carefully select areas to visit for your tours based on seasonal conditions that will help you achieve an experience of a lifetime.

Let your group make its own Yosemite connection filled with amazing photos and lasting memories.

Here are some testimonials from some of our previous groups:

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. Thanks, Steve K (Encino , CA)

It was our pleasure and joy having our tours with you and your team. Additional to your expert advice and knowledge of the zone and botanicals around us, we all were very happy and comfortable with you and your team. I would like to thank and also congratulate you for the way you run your service oriented company. Felipe V (Medellin, Colombia , SA)

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. This experience has really opened my eyes. What a wonderful day I had. Jim S. (San Jose , CA)

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)
