Ruth Hoyt provides a phenomenal guide service. I used her as a wildlife photography (bird) guide at the Laguna Seca Ranch in South Texas this past weekend (06.11.16 - 06.12.16). Her expertise and professionalism are second to none. She really went above and beyond in helping to get birds in front of us to capture the perfect image. Her knowledge of the ranch and south texas widlife greatly helped in contributing to a successful trip. We will definitely use her guide service again in the future and look forward to future outtings with her as our guide. ... See More
I love working with Ruth. She has a real passion for photography and I can tell from the great detail that she talks about any photography related issue that I bring up that she's truly knowledgeable in her field. Ruth is also a kind and genuine person. I'm glad I met her!
Do not hesitate to engage Ruth! She is an exceptional teacher and guide. On a recent photo trip to the Rio Grande Valley, she went over and above to see that our group had a fulfilling experience. With an aesthetic for setting perches, an encyclopedic knowledge of birds and animals and concern for our comfort and well being, she provided us with a never-to-be-forgotten photo trip. The photos I was able to take were spectacular. Thank you Ruth.... See More
I highly recommend Ruth Hoyt as a birding guide and photography instructor. She made my recent experience in South Texas very enjoyable. She went out of her way to see that each student received the guidance they needed, meeting them at their current level and encouraging them to grow in their skills and confidence. She worked hard to create the best possible backgrounds. Ruth included the extras that made for a memorable experience, You will be delighted, as I was, if Ruth is your guide/instructor for your next visit to the Rio Grande Valley.... See More
Ruth is a fantastic photographer and teacher. She really flattened the learning curve when I bought a new camera, boosting my confidence. The day of my lesson, light changed constantly, and, with her guidance, a record number of my nearly 500 photos are "keepers." Thanks, Ruth!
