The Advantages of Hiring a Guide

You might would believe that hiring a guide is an expensive proposition, but for a photographer, it can offer big paybacks.

If you don’t hire a guide, say, on a trip to a national park, you’ll miss photo ops like this. In this shot, taken at Joshua Tree National Park, the guide is holding a horny toad, an animal that is so well camouflaged it’s very difficult to find.

Not only did the guide find many of these hard-to-find creatures, he also picked one up, something most people wouldn’t even think of doing out of an irrational fear that they may get bitten or scratched by a horn that emits a deadly chemical.

I wouldn’t have gotten this shot if it hadn’t been for the guide.
