"Creating lasting memories" by being "at the right place, at the right time" is my passion.

As the exclusive Guide representing my business, I take pride and passion in offering my clients an authentic and lasting take away Yosemite experience.

I only offer Private Tours that are each Custom designed Itinerary based on your desires and requirements. Whether an advanced Photographer one-on-one guiding, a couple spending time together hiking or a traditional family vacation fun time together, I can provide a very different and authentic experience.

After eight years of Yosemite Guiding, I have come to find that each Photo Safari is unique depending on the weather and the participants. I like to think of each excursion as "going into Yosemite with my family for the day". . . striving to have at the end of the day, a happy and fulfilling lasting memory of your Yosemite visit.

A Recent Review of this guide

Patrick was amazing! He was a non-stop source of information about Yosemite National Park, and knew the best times to view each of the points of interest. He gave us plenty of time to explore, and took beautiful photos for our family to treasure. This was an 80th birthday gift to my mother and it was so wonderful that Patrick was able to make it special for each of us.
