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.
Justin Mason, Guide
I moved to the land of opportunity (Alaska) in 2001 from Montana, and have lived in the far north, south east, and currently the interior of Alaska year-round. From summer fly fishing and family fun, to fall hunting and hiking, these two seasons keep me outdoors the longest under Alaska's midnight sun. In the winter, you will find me snowshoeing, skiing, and and traveling to hockey games that my two children play. In the spring, I enjoy camping, photographing the Northern Lights, and antler collecting. I have a camera and a set of binoculars on me at all times because there is always a chance to spot wildlife and an opportunity shoot photos of Alaska's majestic land and animals. Living in Cantwell year-round gives me access to shoot photos right from my kitchen window of Denali, caribou, moose, bear, lynx, and birds. My motto is, "You'll get enough sleep when you are dead, so get up and make the most of every single day.”
