In May 2015 I went to California with three friends for a week long trip to see San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, and parts of the Eastern Sierras. This was the first photo tour for the others and to ensure it was a great experience we engaged the services of Jean Day who laid out a great itinerary for us and then provided transportation and instruction for much of the week. Matt Grans, another local photographer, provided us with a great tour in San Francisco and then took us to Yosemite where Jean caught up with us. Other than a freak snowstorm which hampered our travel plans, but gave us some unique images, the trip went off perfectly. Thanks to my travelling companions and to Jean and Matt for an awesome trip. Please enjoy some of the photos of that week in May.
