Jim Mannion-New Jersey... John and I thoroughly enjoyed our "photo safari" day with you Pat. This was my first "official" photo lesson and I appreciated your patience in showing me how to compose the shot then use the camera as an extension of the eye to capture just the right image. Your consideration in providing snacks and drinks was much appreciated. It was a long day but we got to see the major tourist shots but also the ones that we would surely have missed without your expert guidance. I now have a much better appreciation for the basic rules of photoraphy and how to apply them in a fantastic site like Yosemite in winter. We look forward to visiting again in the spring when we can once again combine learning photography techniques with capturing Yosemite's awesome beauty. (This is one of the few times the word "awesome" is appropriate.)
Kerry Brookes-Nottingham, UK...."During our 2 day trip to Yosemite, it was a pleasure to meet Pat Althizer and participate in one of his half day safari's. Time for us was very short, so it was invaluable to utilize Pat's knowledge of the park and to be taken to some of the best beauty spots to photograph the stunning scenery around us. Although I am a reasonably competent photographer, I learned a lot from Pat, particularly on using the available and striking light, looking for more interesting composition and using exposure compensation to balance the shots, particularly in harsh or shaded light. Our highlight was a visit to Glacier Point to see the sun set over the amazing terrain and a chance to photograph this serene and beautiful part of Yosemite. Highly recommended - particularly if time is short!.
