"Lisa, our day with you absolutely met my expectations. I really appreciated your knowledge of the park and also that you gave us opportunities to use all of the important tools in my camera bag...from tripods, to filters, to macro, to zooms to wide angle. I was able to see the park from its grandeur, magnitude and scale, but also from the minutiae. It was great fun, and I learned so much. I now approach each photo opp with the question, "what is my priority?" I don't always get it right, but at least I'm thinking. .....and I am shooting in M mode as opposed to my comfort zone of AV." ~ L.Breihan, June 2016
"Lisa is a fantastic guide and I would recommend her highly to anyone wanting to improve their nature photography skills." ~ R.Link, September 2016
"In all cases Lisa Culpepper is a consummate professional. Her knowledge of camera technology and Park environments is unsurpassed. Lisa is quite adept at moving up and down the scale of knowledge depending on the information uptake of the student. Lisa has made an awareness and knowledge of the Park a hallmark of her work with photography students and her approach to the transmission of this knowledge goes beyond facts and enters the area of attitude and consciousness of preservation concepts. Truly the best part of your day with Lisa is being absorbed into the world of Yellowstone and realizing all of the wonderful ways to enjoy the Park either through the camera's eye or through conversation with Lisa." ~ J.

"First, my wife and I have developed a special friendship with Lisa. We feel so lucky to know her and look forward to many more times together. Our priority for this specific tour was Photography Instruction. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable with the many facets of photography and she truly knows Yellowstone Park. What makes her most special is her beautifully paced approach to instruction. She established key principles of photography for us and regularly referred back to them as we progressed through the day, which is a very seasoned teaching approach. She is always kind and motivating; she makes the learning process very enjoyable. I also want to add the Lisa keeps safety a first priority; much appreciated! Lisa ensured that she fully understood our goals for the tour, in advance of the tour, and she perfectly worked with us to achieve our goals. I cannot wait till we do this again!!" ~ M.

"Lisa is so knowledgeable about photography, the different settings on my camera and the incredible Yellowstone Park! I've had the opportunity of working with Lisa at least 4 times and each time I learn something new and discover things I didn't know about the park. Spending a day with Touring Wonderland is always the highlight of my trip to my favorite park, Yellowstone!! I would reccomend this experience for anyone who loves taking photographs and enjoys our incredible national parks! " ~ J. Lacerte, May 2017
"We had a great day with Lisa. She was very knowledgeable about the park and my camera. She took us to places we wouldn't have known were there without her guidance." ~ G. Farmer, September 2017
Thank you for your feedback! It is an honor to share Yellowstone with all of you, and deepen the powerful connection between ourselves, our cameras, and the natural world we are all a part of. We are creating awareness, whether we know it or not, one capture at a time!
