Dale Morris is the consummate professional, and during our Borneo trip, was always there for us when we needed advice and assistance to properly frame a photo, whether it be a telephoto, wide angle or macro shot, taking into account such factors as subject positioning, lighting and background. He made sure we were in the ideal position to get a photo, meaning that he himself, unselfishly, was often outside of that sweet spot until he made sure we had gotten our memorable shot.

His patience was appreciated as I sometimes fumbled getting all my settings correct during the multitude of photographic conditions we encountered, from the intense daylight of the midday sun, to the deep shadows under the forest canopy. Never overbearing, truly unflappable, always helpful and just plain fun to be around. Dale is an unpretentious and likeable guy.

The trip was amazing.
Everything was well planned and organized, the lodges were very pleasant, and the local guides were excellent. We saw every animal on the list and got great photos. I hope you know how lucky you are to have Dale, because he’s a star among photographer tour leads.

He’s not only an extremely talented photographer for wildlife, macro, landscapes, and people, he’s a fountain of interesting knowledge about flora and fauna, and he has an innate ability with animals that’s a big advantage when photographing them. Even if we don’t see what we’re looking for while searching for wildlife, he can always find something cool and unusual to photograph in an interesting way, so it’s fun all day long and never boring. When it comes to non-photography guide-related tasks, he takes charge and is competent in every way.

Thanks again for everything and I look forward to traveling with Oryx again in the future.

Nancy and I had an absolutely fabulous time travelling and photographing with Dale in Borneo. We came home with some spectacular images of primates, and with so many of them it’s going to take us weeks to get through them all and process all the ones we want to. We were very impressed with all of the arrangements ORYX and Dale made to assure that this was a very high quality trip.
Absolutely first class.

Thanks again for such a superb trip. We look forward to traveling with ORYX again soon
