Went on the Sunset Photo Tour with two other people from Australia. Tully was our photo guide. He expertly drove his 4 wheel drive vehicle. He would stop at different spots and make suggestions of where to photograph. We had unexpected hail and snow which added to the photographs. I would use Tully and Phillips Photography again.
We loved our sunset tour with Tully! He really has great ideas about camera position and places to get the best photos. My husband thoroughly enjoyed this tour because he didn't feel rushed and he was able to get some wonderful photos. Tully's insights and great sense of humor helped make the tour a memorable experience.
Even though it was mid-March and I was the only one on the tour, Carl took me on the full tour and showed me some of the best areas in Mystery Valley for photos. He was very pleasant to visit with and answered any questions I had. I was especially pleased with our last stop at Teardrop Arch for sunset photos. I would heartily recommend any tour with Phillip's Photography Tours.
Hi there :o) After a tour in 2013 with Phillip's Photography Tours in Monument Valley, which was very great, we wanted to relive that experience in Mystery Valley in 2017 (just about 2 weeks ago). Both times Ray has been our guide and he was just great. He knows the area very well and he knows about photography better than me. Ok, that might not be too surprising. But if you combine his photography skills with his knowledge of the surroundings you can imagine where this might lead. We met other "photo guides" on our tour who left their vehicle just in front of the point of interest. What kind of guide does this?? Ray knows about the area, photography _and_ he can judge the light conditions! So wether you are an amateur, like me, or a pro: my guess would be that a tour with Phillip's Photography will satisfy your needs. Just ask for Ray as a guide. If you search for "Buddy Trash" on flickr.com you can find two photos I took in 2013. Unfortunately I have overdone the Lightroom efforts. But you will get the idea. So that is the reason why I rated this tour 5 stars. To make it clear: I get nothing out of this review. It is as honest as it can be. Bodo Zentner 11th June 2017, Hamburg, Germany
