Hello! Meet the team of Terry Boyd Photography Tours. We all have lived in Alaska for many years. Some of us migrate like the birds when it gets too cold, and some of us stay through winter, but all of us call Alaska home. And we're thrilled to share a little bit of it and a little bit of ourselves with you.
Terry Boyd, Owner
I grew up in Arkansas and spent my younger years mountain biking and fishing as if my life depended on it. But, in my early 20s, I decided that I might not make it to "the pros" in either of those fields, so I walked into a pawn shop and bought a used 35mm camera. I knew absolutely nothing about photography and had never even touched a camera with more than one button before - all we had growing up was an old Polaroid. The first time I photographed a sunset from a bluff over the Arkansas River, I knew this was the path for me. Since then, I have dedicated my life to the light, doing my best to be in the right place at the right time. I first traveled to Alaska in 2003 and have returned every summer since, working in a variety of positions until I started offering photography tours in 2010. I am truly living my dream, sharing my passions with others, all while in a setting I consider to be one of the most captivating places on Earth.

Unlike most people who visit Alaska during the summer, I first arrived in late fall - planning to visit my cousin in Anchorage for a month and heading back south to the lower 48, but I ended up staying through winter and the following summer. I fell head over heels for Alaska and I have returned every summer since 2009 guiding hikes in Denali National Park. There was one year when I thought I was not going to return - not that I didn't want to, but it just wasn't going to work out. My friend Terry caught wind of my plans and changed them, for which I am forever grateful because we are now married and I get to spend half of my life in the most wonderful place on Earth. I help with all the behind-the-scenes stuff here, so you likely won't meet me, but you might talk to me on the phone or through email. I look forward to sharing my knowledge of this special place with you and helping you make the most of your Denali visit.

I made my way to Alaska in 2016 for what was supposed to be a few weeks and haven't left. I live in a dry cabin on the boundary of Denali National Park year round. Photojournalism is my passion and I love to use photography as a tool to explore the human experience and natural world. I live for winter and you can find me skiing and climbing any chance I get...always with a camera in hand.

Dallin Smith, Guide
I'm originally from Salt Lake City, Utah and from a young age I was spoiled by the Great Outdoors through family vacations and Boy Scouts. I love to travel and have been fortunate to travel to all 50 states, 74 countries (and counting), and all 7 continents; but with that being said Alaska has captivated and changed my life the most. Growing up my grandfather would visit Alaska and after coming home he would say, "Get to Alaska as soon as possible." When I asked him why he simply responded, "That way you have more time to go back!" I took my Grandfather's advice in 2009 and have spent every summer in Alaska since. Alaska to me represents the fullest, freshest, most dramatic form of Nature and with our cameras I know we can share that with others. While not acting as your guide, you can always find me with my camera at my side, hiking and birding around the great Denali area. I look forward to showing you around a part of the world I hold close to my heart!
