See what others have to say:

"We really enjoyed the photography course and the hiking throughout Glacier. It was simply spectacular!!. Rick and Dody are a fantastic team and work together to ensure the needs of the particular group are always met. My husband and I learned so much from Rick, and were able to practice it in the field over the 4 spectacular days. We will continue to use everything we learned from him as we move forward in our growth in photography! Thank you so much for your knowledge, love of the park and animals, for taking care of us, and for your ability to share your experience and tremendous skill with us! You helped us take our landscape photography to a whole new level." - By Donna & Ross McB. from Paso Robles, CA

"I thought the course was absolutely fantastic, in a stunning location and with a superb instructor. I learned so much in just a few days and my photographs have improved immensely. I just need to work out how I can attend another workshop. Thank you." - By Adm T. from Great Britain

"Rick is an excellent teacher, with patience and expertise to help the photographer evolve in his/her craft, from beginner to advanced..." - By Scott F. from Overland Park, KS

"I want to thank you again for your time and efforts put into teaching our Photography Class. I teach back home and I know how frustrating and difficult it can be at times; however, you were excellent, as was your presentation material, and manner of teaching. It is easy to tell that you love what you do ... hope to see you next summer ... to take the class again!!!! ." - By Bev S. from Posen, MI

"Thanks so much for your highly instructive Photography Course at Glacier Institute.   Gaining more knowledge about camera  technique, understanding what makes a good photograph and getting out of the old mindset of auto was the highlight of the the course for me.  I appreciate the chance to be inspired by nature and the sights in and around Glacier N. P. were well chosen." - By Hallie R. from Shields River Valley, MT

"After attending Rick’s Yellowstone Winter class in 2014 I had several positive thoughts and no negatives. All the logistics worked great, the hotel was one of the best in West Yellowstone, and the tracked Van and driver were first class. We had perfect weather for four days and were able to get great photo options with animals, scenery and thermal features. Rick is a professional photographer and was able to answer any technical questions on equipment or setting option for any situation.  The level of my technical ability was greatly enhanced because of this trip. Yellowstone in the winter is a must trip for any photographer." - By Tom B. from Kalispell, MT
