We enjoyed the great photography tour with you, Jay! You showed us magnificent landscapes of Central Australia and taught us many skills of how to take great pictures! You are an excellent photographer, instructor and tour guide! Thank you so much!
We met Jay in Alice Springs in July and he took us on a journey to Glen Helen Gorge for a night to watch the stars. It was amazing to hear his passion for the area and the night skies in the NT. You need to do a one of Jay’s tours.
