Great leadership cultivates magical outcomes


Iceland was my first photography workshop. I lucked out with Colby Brown and Ken Kaminesky as the leaders. I had a significant amount of camera equipment about which I knew little more than there were a lot of buttons. Colby and Ken were pretty amazing in that they were able to accomodate such a beginner yet not slight the more advanced participants. They were also quite adept at dancing with Mother Nature and her incessant interference with the logistical plans. We were an eclectic group that developed into an awesome group if I might be so boastful. Great leadership cultivates magical outcomes.

Amazing Photo Workshop


Joined Colby's Iceland Photography Workshop last September 2014. Had an amazing time shooting incredible Iceland landscape and learning the finer points of photography from Colby. Learnt a great deal about photography as Colby took the effort to spend individual time with each participant to ensure everyone becomes a better photographer. Found Colby to be very approachable and willing to share his knowledge and experience on photography. Hope to join in another Colby's workshop soon!

Truly inspirational!

Sergio Zanotti

We arrived to the famous "Racetrack" in Death Valley around 4:00 pm after setting our camp site a few miles away. As we walked in , I saw two large buses load several dozen "photographers" from other workshops to head back to their hotels. Our small group had the place to ourselves that sunset, during the night and the next sunrise!" For those chasing the best light, there is no other way. Colby knows it and his workshops are designed to provide participants with an intimate and unique experience. Truly inspirational!

one of the best instructors

Stephen Flournoy

I recently attended my first workshop with Colby and crew. Not only was I impressed with the quality of the instruction, but Colby worked to ensure I came back with fantastic photos as well. I can easily say that Colby is one of the best instructors on the market and have just signed up for another workshop because of it!

A Truly Tailored Experience


I'm a full time working photographer who is always looking to further my skills. After chatting with Colby I decided that his Iceland photography workshop would be a great fit for me and I was right. Colby pays special attention to individual needs and will keep handing out the knowledge for as long as you keep asking for it. I would recommend a Colby Brown workshop for anyone from a pure beginner photographer to a working professional.

wholeheartedly recommended


A tremendous experience. Travelling with Colby is a just great. Trip was carefully planned, we were always on the good side of the light and I personally learned a lot. Following my first trip to Nicaragua with Colby in 2012, I booked again for Hawaii in 2014. Same spirit, care and enjoyment.
