I have for the first time ever seen the picture of the mother polar and her cub huddling over her dead cub. I was never so moved and it will forever remain in my mind...maybe we need to have that photograph in the public eye again so we can all remember how tough life is for wildlife...and that without nature, humans will not survive.
I wanted to tell you since a very long time, that you are an exquisite, talented photographer. For almost 3 decades, I have been working as a graphic designer, for many environmental clients and regret that almost everyone cut their budgets for photography. I wish you all the very best, keep up the great work and I thank you for telling the important stories of our planet.

"This morning I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me in my mailbox... my Natural Exposures package! OMG! So, cool and informative. I've traveled on other photography tours and even have done a Nat Geo Expedition and your package is far and above the very best I have received. I can't wait to get to Alaska! Thanks for the trip info. Until Aug."

"Still in the afterglow of spending so much time so close to Coastal Brown Bears! Thanks SO MUCH for an amazing Alaska Brown Bear experience. One of the best vacations we've had complete with great photographs (and salmon in our freezer!). Special shout out to Tanya for ensuring we made our flight despite weather problems! You two are really great!!"

Paulette and I really enjoyed the tour, all of your help before and during the trip, and everyone's companionship. Leon has invited us to become members of the TanDan fan club, pending your approval. We are looking forward to a lifetime membership. Please thank Dan for his patience with my basic photography questions and for his software processing sessions. I really appreciated learning in such a fantastic environment.

It was alot of fun and a very rewarding "nature" experience. Thanks for another great time!
Claude Lecours, Ontario
I hope you and Tanya have a wonderful time out on the River. I had the best time on our trip; didn't think I could top the polar bears in the Arctic Ocean, but the Pantanal was waaaaaaay better! I learned so much from you; I really appreciate the little tips you shared. I wish I could shadow you for a month (even though it'd drive you crazy) to pick up the "tidbits" of knowledge that you let spill out of your experience tank! Thanks for making a spot for me at your photo party; I hope I did nothing to get "de-listed!" :0)
Dean Swartz, Ohio
The pleasure was all mine. I am not kidding when I say that you throw the best "photo party" ever. I hope you have a safe trip home and that all your photos are tack sharp (just like mine of flying birds are . . . NOT!) I look forward to joining you again on another adventure.
