Often individuals are fixed on the overall vista and they do not get 'close enough' to their real target subjects to do them justice. Thanks for bringing this work to all of us."
-Lonnie Brock, Scottsdale, AZ

"I just wanted to comment on your book. I recently traveled the 'Grand Circle,' with photography as my focus and your book was an indispensable part of my photographic itinerary. The proof is in my prints. I used your advice with respect to place and time, etc., and you were on the money. I recommended your book to many people on my trip and just wanted to let you know that it's exactly what I was looking for. Hope to be back there real soon. Good shooting!"
-Michael Ryan, Bogota, NJ

"Selecting the "best" title, subscription, or software is no less challenging than must be selecting the IOTM. I will be most pleased to receive Phototrip USA's "Land of the Canyons" guidebook of the Colorado Plateau. That title and subject matter hold great interest to me, as does the PhotoTripUSA site and the monthly photo exhibits it contains. Much to be learned, much beauty to explore, understand, and share, plus a location in my own back yard, as it were, which will make "Land of the Canyons" particularly useful to me!
-Bob Cleary, Littleton, CO

"I have read your book 'Land of the Canyons' a MUST reading for anybody who is going to the Colorado Plateau. I have recommended and given copies of the book to many of my friends. Good luck with the book. Though in my own greed I hope many people do not read your book. Your description was in wonderful detail which would entice more people to visit the Colorado plateau."
-Jerry Rosenfeld, Huntington Woods, MI

"Again, another beautiful showcase. Keep up the good work. It is a joy to look at and study all of the fine photography presented in your galleries."
-Chris Jacobson, Bellevue, WA

"Thanks for the great web site. I used it exhaustively when making trip plans."
-Matthew Thompson, San Antonio, Tx

"Just a line to let you know my wife & I made a trip out to Arches & Canyonlands this past fall. Your book proved invaluable."
-Martin Kullen, Stoughton, MA

"I accidently came across this wonderful site while doing some last minute research on Death Valley. I am very impressed with the featured photographer - great images. I am book marking this site and will look at it again when I come back from the Valley. I really need to send this site to a few fellow nature photographers - it's a find! Thank God for the net. What a resource."
-Mike Unold, Brooklyn, NY

"I just want to tell you how much I love your photo gallery. My husband and I belong to a photography club in So. Calif. the F Stops. We see a great many wonderful images at club and enjoy sharing ours also. The images on your web site are so large and sharp, with wonderful color. I would like to know what means you use to put the images onto the web site. Most sites have very small images or thumbnails and even if you can enlarge them the quality is poor and grainy. We pass on your web site URL to all our friends and use some of the shots as references for good place to shoot when we taking pictures out in the field. I loved the Gallery on the volcanos of Hawaii. The Hawaiian Islands is my favorite place on earth. Keep up the spectacular work."

My sprit, however, wanders constantly across these arid wonderlands, places where each minute a new canvas of color and contrast appear bringing beauty and a sense of peace to those who choose to feel it. Thank you."

"Je suis allé voir de plus près tes photos sur le Web et je dois te dire combien j'ai été touché par ce que j'ai vu. J'aime ta manière assez 'serrée' et 'économe' de cadrer. C'est peut-être moins une question de cadrage qu'une certaine qualité de distance (ou de proximité) par rapport au sujet. C'est assez serré but not intrusive, if you see what I mean. Une proximité respectueuse en quelque sorte."
-Laurent Sauerwein, Paris, France

"Voici plusieurs mois j'ai commandé votre guide et le CD Rom du pays des canyons, avec mon épouse, nous avons visité de nouveau cet été cet admirable région. Je suis moi aussi photographe mais amateur ... j'ai ramené quelques belles images en suivant les indications de votre guide, particulière utile sur les horaires favorables en fonction des lieux, ce qui est impossible d'imaginer avant d'avoir été sur place, j'avais donc pu organiser mon séjour en fonction de ces conseils."
-Gérard Duminil, Nice, France
