“The photographic opportunities on this trip were beyond my imagination. Aaron and John were certain that everyone was up to speed on what camera settings to use, and how to get the shots. This was all done with a sense of humor, energy and enthusiasm. A great experience!” – Sue D – Bend, Oregon (Snowy Owls, 2016)
“Greatest photos ever…excellent light, beautiful owls..lots of time and opportunity to get the perfect shot.” – John H – Watsonville CA (Snowy Owl Photo Tour 2016)
“I was very impressed with Aaron’s professionalism and the extraordinary amount of hard work he puts into these trips. He was always up early…and puts in long days to ensure success. All the logistics were handled flawlessly. There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes to make these trips both fun and smooth. The pre-departure information was very thorough and contained everything one needed to know to ensure a successful trip. A list of recommended clothing, temperatures to expect, best lenses and cameras to bring … all that was spot on and very helpful. Aaron went the extra mile and made it look easy. Highly recommended!” – Gary K – Visalia, California (Snowy Owls, 2016)
