Welcome to

Colby Brown Photography

I became a photographer back in 2006, rapidly rising in the ranks of the photo industry. I  created my company, Colby Brown Photography, to offer my services to the public and corporations. I spent countless hours studying the latest photography techniques, exploring camera technology and photo editing. This learning curve opened my eyes to the world of photography education by exploring the world and using these techniques in the field.

I was leading photography workshops for National Geographic in South America, further spurring my love for both travel and photo education. Over the years, I have developed photography workshops that take you to wondrous locations around the globe while teaching the different disciplines of photography. Each workshop is carefully planned to offer the best scenic locations to create memorable adventure while allowing me to share my knowledge and experience. 

Today, I am a professional photographer, photo educator and author living in Eastern Pennsylvania with my family. The meticulously researched  photography workshops I created, specialize in landscape, travel and wildlife photography, I am fortunate to work all over the globe, across all 7 continents, documenting various cultures, environments and species in pursuit of capturing life on this planet.  Following my heart and my passions, I dedicate a lot of my time to working with small NGOs, charities and initiative programs while on the road. If you have been looking for a way to give back, check out my NGO, The Giving Lens. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out and contact me. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy!

Each year I run photography workshop adventures around the globe in some of the most incredible locations on the planet such as Patagonia, Iceland, Norway, Cuba, Africa and much more…

Throughout my career I have created a number of tutorials, video courses & e-books that cover everything from social media and business to post-processing (Adobe, Capture One & On1 Photo RAW). You can find these in the Photography Education section of this website.

I really enjoyed the Costa Rica workshop. We went to some stunning locations and the trip was very varied – from boat trips along the river to rainforest walks, a butterfly sanctuary, nighttime outings and a trip into the mountains to see beautiful quetzals and hummingbirds. This was my first experience of macro photography and using a flash and having developed the skills it is something I look forward to(…)
