When I bought Jeff's "Dirt Cheap Photo Guide to Grand Teton National Park," I was merely intending to use it as a guide. It is so engaging and conversational, however, that by page 5 I was already toying with the idea of taking the tour, and by page ten I gave up and emailed him to sign on. My wife and I just finished the trip, and it was without a doubt the best outing I've ever taken, and that includes the Nepal trek and Grand Canyon river-raft trip of my youth. Jeff is friendly, savvy and professional, and he freely shares his vast knowledge of the Jackson Hole area, both in the book and on his tour. His charisma rubbed off on each member of the group, and the camaraderie that emerged was almost as memorable as the scenery. Now, as an extra bonus, I get to view the excellent shots he took while standing only a few feet from me during the 38 hours of photography that we packed into 3-1/2 days. This trip is something that is going to stay with me for a long time.

There are photographers out there who produce absolutely fantastic photos but will not give you the time of day; they are so self-absorbed with their own work that they have no time to really look at and offer positive comments on the work of others who may even be considered potential competitors in a very competitive market. And then, there is Jeff Clow, who not only creates stunning imagery in his own right, but who understands the feeling one gets when they put that viewfinder up to their eye. Jeff is a photographer who doesn't hesitate to offer helpful tips, compliments, and encouragement to other photographers so that they may improve upon their own craft. That's because (I believe) Jeff genuinely wants others to learn about and love the medium at which he himself excels. And *that's* the mark of a true photographer. This is not a very long testimonial - it's rather short, I'm afraid. Others have gone into better detail about Jeff's photographic talents and generosity. You see, I haven't really met Jeff face-to-face, yet. I've talked to him, emailed him, and had circumstances not intervened, would have been a van driver on one of his Dirt Cheap Photo Tours (still wanna do that, sooner rather than later). But after reading yet another positive, encouraging comment left by Jeff about one of my photos, I felt it incumbent upon myself to let other readers know that this guy is not only a class-act photographer, but a really nice person, too :) Thanks, Jeff. Keep those beautiful photos coming and keep on being a great role model for other photographers.

As Jeff says, "If you want to take better pictures, stand in front of better things"!! Amen to that---just back from Jeff's Dirt Cheap Photo Tour of the Grand Tetons National Park and what a magnificent sight for the eyes and the camera!!! Talk about the grand tour---Jeff took us to all the most viewed locations as well as some off the beaten path. Up every morning at 3:45 a.m. and on location at 5:30 a.m. to shoot magnificent sunrises at Oxbow Bend, the Moulton Barns and cowgirls rounding up the herd to take back for the trail riders!!! I'm tellling you folks, it doesn't get any better than this!! Tons of shooting for twelve to fourteen hours a day, but the lack of sleep is well worth it! Too many locations to mention, but just head on over to Jeff's tour site, www.dirtcheapphot... for all the information. And, believe you me, you are definitely getting your money's worth!! Jeff and Wil are both true gentlemen and are there to see that you are well taken care of!! Thanks to both for the trip of a lifetime!!

Writing a testimonial for Jeff is totally redundant - all you have to do is spend 5 minutes perusing his stream to appreciate his talent and skill. He posts a wide variety of images from every day life to travel to exotic and beautiful places. His images from the Grand Tetons convinced me to visit there for the first time ever last Fall. I only wish I could have attended one of his photo tours and saved a lot of time finding the perfect vantage points in the park. He's also a heck of a nice person, kind and generous with his comments. Jeff is one of the people that keep me coming back to flickr every day.

Jeff Clow ... Thank you very much for your comment on my SchwabacherLanding picture... I was driving to the Snake River overlook to see the Ansel Adams scene, when I saw the name on a turn off. I recognized the name from one of your many beautiful images and immediately headed down the dirt road. Needless to say, I was delighted to find the exact spot you've shot from and to even have adequate lighting. So now I have yet another hint from you to be thankful for; in addition to the many hints that I have previously picked up from following your work. Many thanks for being such a great inspiration to me and the many others that appreciate your flickr contributions! .

I had the opportunity to meet Jeff and his family by accident or ???? on a previous trip - His family is just as amazing as his photographs. I also had the chance to here some of his lectures about certain destinations on our cruise to the Caribbean. Very informational and fun with his personallity. I also had the chance to speak to him one on one about photography and as a newbie to all of this he was very helpful and willing to offer advice and how to tips. I highly encourage and recommend if you have the opportunity to hear one of his lectures or join him on his photographic tours to take advantage of it

Jeff is an excellent photographer and superb friend. I had the great privilege of shooting next to him during the inaugural Dirt Cheap Photo Tour. It was a blast and I would return in a heartbeat! Jeff always had his trademark smile and was so giving in his photographic knowledge. He's truly a talent, but what sets him apart is his willingness to share. Jeff's obviously made a huge impact on this flickr community of which we are all beneficiaries. Thank you so much for your boundless creativity. It's always a treat to wake up to a shot of the Tetons (4am wake calls included!). Thank you for your continued support and contribution to this community. I truly value your friendship. Happy clicking!

A flickr friend for many years now and one who has remained so, Jeff's talent for photography is equalled only by the size of his huge heart. Jeff Clow is a skilled photographer, a proud father and a motivational talent. My hat goes off to this fine flickr friend.

Jeff is a superb photographer and an unfailingly nice and supportive guy. His photographs of the Grand Tetons and the Jackson Hole region, especially, are inspirational and aspirational. A trip through his photostream is to be moved and inspired, humbled and awed. It's a pleasure to count him among my Flickr friends.

It doesn't take much effort to look around Flickr and find excellent photographs - they abound. But Jeff's stand out; the well-deserved acclaim the receive gives testament to that. But what intrigues me is “Why?” Is it just composition? Or lighting? Or technique? No, there’s more to it… and I concluded this: I don’t see Jeff’s ego when I view his work; I see “the thing itself” (Those of you who’ve studied photography will recognize those words by Edward Weston). It is almost as though Jeff becomes invisible – transparent - his work gives voice to his subjects – it is as though he channels the subject – allowing it to reveal its own most perfect vision of itself – and it is that to which we respond. Jeff is also an amazingly supportive person – he seems to take genuine delight in the work of others, and is generous in offering words of encouragement – urging us to see more, feel more, give more… So thanks Jeff – I’m a better photographer because of you – and perhaps a better person, too.

Jeff, and for that matter Mrs. Clow, are the sort of folks that you would love to meet when you have an hour or so to spend - you will talk about some of the most amazing and stimulating topics! Jeff's work is amazing! By looking at his images I am learning so much! I met the Clow's on the MV Sapphire Princess where I was the Naturalist up in Alaska in the fall of 2008. We were just coming out of Glacier Bay National Park when he turned to me and gave me one of those famous "Jeff" grins. I still have the Texas pin that he gave me on that voyage! An absolute scholar and gentleman.

I have known Jeff Clow for about four years and we have become friends through this wonderful photo sharing web site. Jeff is a very talented photographer and I have mentioned on more than one occasion that a man with this talent should have gone "professional" long ago! I love visiting his photo stream and his forte is without a doubt capturing American nature and landscape. His shots are truly remarkable and the number of comments generated are certainly in keeping with this. His HDR and macro photos are a joy to view. I value his friendship and invite you to take the time to explore his world. You are bound to find love and inspiration throughout Jeff Clow's photostream.

For a trip to majestic and spectacular sceneries, don't waste time and visit his stream...you will walk awayy mesmerized, amazed and in awe. Landscapes aren't the only things Jeff does well, his ultimate work with frogs and dragonflies are fantastic and his creativity in exploring boundaries outside the "purist" dimension is fabulous! A true inspiration and one of the most valued Flickr community members. Thank you for sharing your world with us Jeff and thank you for your encouragements and for being a completely ace Flickrite!

Allow me to join the crowd of fans applauding Jeff Clow! I've been inspired by Jeff's talents ever since I first laid eyes on his photostream. Yes, his work will make your jaw drop with its sheer beauty, but it goes beyond that...there is a warmth and humanity that shines through in every single photograph Jeff produces, an essence that pays tribute to the aching beauty of our world. Aside from his wonderful talents as a photographer, there is also his kind and generous nature to which I can personally attest. I feel his gentle encouraging presence throughout the flickr community, and it's obvious that he's had a powerful impact on all of us who have had the pleasure of getting to know him just a little. Jeff, you're a real original, but I wish there were more like you! It might sound corny, but thanks for being you!

I had been following Jeff Clow's photo stream for some time before I got up the courage to ask for him as a contact. I really just wanted to see his photos come into my Contacts Photo Page, because I knew I could learn from them, and I didn't expect him to pay attention to my photos. To my surprise, he took the time to look and make helpful comments, and now, here I am writing yet another testimonial in appreciation of this creative photographer and remarkable man. I've never seen so many testimonials on any other profile page. They bear witness to the extraordinary talent and generosity of Jeff Clow. Not only does he share his very wonderful images with us, but often he tells us "how to" techniques. When he comments on a photo - or on a set, I just know he understands what I'm trying to portray. Thanks, Jeff, for sharing your beautiful and intelligent photography and for your generous support.

When I had questions and needed answers, Jeff was there to provide them. After knowing him a bit more, It didn't take me long to understand him. Jeff is what I call, a true artist at heart and one who'd appreciate your work, encourage you to death and would show you the way. He is in no competition with any one but rather a friend and a mentor. Thank you Jeff and I know you have heard this long before, in my letter of gratitude for your help and your friendship.
