"I just spent three full days in the Tetons and Yellowstone with AlpenGlow Tours and Brad Schwarm and I really can't rave enough about my experience. Brad's a fun, good natured person and a great guy to travel with. Brad brought me to stunning locations and just as importantly, got me there at the right time for the best possible light. I had all the time that I needed to craft the photos that I wanted to make and that was very important to me. He was also very happy to share his photo equipment and photography insights. So, wether you are a beginner or advanced photographer you should expect to get a lot from your time with Brad. I certainly did!"

"Our Sunrise Tetons photo tour was an incredible experience. The scenery and vantage points alone were worth the price of the trip, but Brad took it to another level with his calm professionalism, thorough knowledge of his craft and friendly demeanor. The four of us are amateur photographers at best, but Brad spent four tireless hours getting the most out of our abilities and consistently putting us in the position to grab breathtaking photos. I, personally, gained a new level of understanding about my camera and took some of the best pictures I've ever taken. Alpenglow, wildlife, history lessons and snacks... we couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Brad!"

"We booked two tours with Brad and Alpenglow Tours during our June trip to Grand Tetons.Brad was a terrific tour guide, making sure that everyone was having a good time. He was very personable and professional and his knowledge of the area allowed us to thoroughly enjoy our visit to the Tetons and proved to be a great starting point for our trip. I also found his tour prices to be very competitive and reasonable for a private tour."

"My husband and I very much enjoyed our early morning photography tour of the Tetons. Brad was knowledgeable, professional, patient, friendly, and a highly skilled photographer with a great eye for landscapes and wildlife. He has lived in the area for over 20 years and knew all the best lookouts. His expertise allowed us to capture beautiful sunrise shots of the Tetons and nearby wildlife.  Brad's tour was suitable for everyone from beginning to advanced photographers and he happily tailored the tour to fit our expertise and interests. We enthusiastically endorse Brad and Alpenglow and will book another tour with him when we return to Jackson."

"This was my first trip to the Teton Mountains. As an aspiring photographer, my goal was to learn more about light and landscape photography and Brad's sunrise tour was perfect. Brad was very knowledgeable, patient, soft spoken yet informative, and willing to share his experience and expertise to the fullest extent. My photos turned out beautiful and Brad tailored the tour perfectly to fit my needs. In just a few hours, I was able to learn more about composition, exposure, neutral density filters and even software recommendations for processing my photos. We hope to return to Wyoming and I highly recommend Alpenglow tours."

"Brad was GREAT! He knew the best outlooks and quiet back roads to see everything! It was quite clear he fed off your personality and made decisions on where to head based on what was discussed. My favorite part of the morning was running through the sage brush stalking elk to get the perfect shot!"
