Testimonials

Go shoot with Colby!

I can’t say enough good things about our workshop with Colby. He’s spent his life traveling the world and photographing it, and is completely willing to share what he’s learned. Colby is extraordinarily generous with his time and knowledge – always ensuring that every participant has the chance to ask any question, and going the extra several miles to ensure that we all walk away with our individual challenges addressed. Whatever your skill level, he treats everyone with consideration and respect – so you’re comfortable asking the most basic of questions. A workshop with Colby will improve and inform the most experienced of photographers and also jump-start the skills of a total newbie – and leave everyone happy. Despite this total professionalism, Colby is an out-of-the-box thinker and there’s nothing ordinary about his workshops. On top of it all, he’s giving back to the world he photographs with The Giving Lens, and is a cool dude to hang out with. Now stop reading my testimonial and go book a trip with CB already!

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.

Great First Trip To Zion

I was fortunate to take a quick, three day, Sony sponsored photo trip with Colby as our leader. Colby, as you may know is a Sony Artisan of Imagery. I hadn’t met or been familiar with his work or teaching prior to this event but was looking forward to meeting him and learning new photo techniques. I also hoped for great Zion locations at sunrise and sunset. I was not disappointed! Colby was an impressive instructor. His teaching style with adults is perfect in that he makes himself available for any and all questions but is not intrusive nor pedantic. He helps you think through setting up a picture and is available to help if needed. A goal of mine for this trip was to become more familiar with shooting in Manual mode as well as to use longer exposures. Colby assisted with both culminating in a number of “keepers” from various locations in and around the Virgin River. I also gained from his helping the small group, in his tutorial/post processing session, to learn to pre-visualize a scene from an artistic instead of a strictly technical point of view. In addition, Colby helped me gain expertise with LightRoom editing software. The quality of my finished images definitely improved as a result of this experience. Bottom line, if you have an opportunity to join one of Colby’s tours, grab it. You won’t be disappointed.

Lofoten Islands, Norway Fenruary 2016

I had the pleasure of going with Colby to the Lofoten Islands, Norway in February 2016. I greatly benefited from Colby’s extensive knowledge and his willingness to answer any photography question from mechanics to style and the realities of the business. Lofoten’s geography, coupled with the change-up weather, offered just about every opportunity one could think of for landscape photography and learning in different situations. I thoroughly enjoyed the unstructured “chase the light” nature of the workshop and the fact that Colby is available to answer questions when they come up. Colby leads by example and reinforced the simple professional traits that make any endeavor successful – discipline, perseverance and patience. We tend to forget those when we’re traveling and get lazy. Top it all off with excellent fellow photographers and traveling companions from all walks of life, and my high expectations for this trip were exceeded.

Awesome Iceland Adventure

I recently returned from Colby’s Iceland Summer Adventure and it really was an adventure–every day and night! This was my first photo workshop, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, including the camping aspect of the trip. The adventure included stunning locations, top notch photo instruction from Colby and Peyton, and great camaraderie
with the other participants. And the camping just made it that much more memorable. I’d love to go back to Iceland, but I don’t think it would be the same without Colby and the gang.

Such a Fantastic Experience!

Colby’s workshop was truly an awesome experience. Iceland is amazing and Colby had every detail set so we didn’t have to worry about anything but photography. The vibe was laid back and the plans were flexible around the ever-changing weather conditions. I learned a lot and made some lifelong friends in the process. I couldn’t have asked for anything better and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Karen K

Amazing photography tour and workshop

What an experience! We traveled to some amazing locations and received great guidance from Colby and Peyton. I’m a better photographer because of it. The group size was ideal and the other photographers were motivating and fun to be around. I have memories that will last a lifetime.
