Workshop Testimonials

Victor A
An Unforgettable Experience!

I can't wait to have the opportunity to take another trip with Colby. I feel I learned so much more than just photography skills. Colby's knowledge of the area, tips and guidance is immensely appreciated and I was welcomed by an amazing group of photographers. I enjoyed every second of our trip and would highly recommend it to anyone in search of a professional photography workshop.

Sandy S.
Cuba changed me in so many ways.

Colby is an amazing humanitarian filled with knowledge and the patients needed to teach and lead a workshop. Cuba is a place so close to home yet so different in life style. On this workshop expect to learn technically, but also learn the true meaning of being grateful. Beauty and sadness abound. So much to document on this trip. You will never be bored and your images will be amazing. Rene is Colby's assistant in Cuba and the combo of the two is quite entertaining. The other photographers on this adventure were a great group of people of all ages and skill levels and we all remain friends to this day. I highly recommend this workshop and hope to travel again with Colby soon.

Made My Dreams Come True!

I had a great time with Colby Brown and his fantastic assistant Pedro Kin in Norway - Lofoten Feb 2018. My main goal was to see and photograph the Northern Lights and Colby with his high knowledge of the area along with a great experience in understanding the local weather and planning the right places and times to shoot the aurora made my dream come true. Besides, I could improve my photographic skills especially night photography and get more tips in terms of education.

Thanks for this amazing adventure, Colby Brown and Pedro Kin!

Creating Memories that will last forever

My wife and I had the pleasure of attending Colby Brown's Iceland Winter workshop in March 2016. Hands down, this has been one of the best decisions we’ve made. Colby helped us right from start to finish, answering our never-ending barrage of questions, and even helped us with getting our Iceland Visa. Initially, we were a bit unsure of how the experience would be in Iceland, but Colby put all those doubts to rest. A patient instructor/guide, Colby’s knowledge of the area is pretty unparalleled and he went out of his way to make sure that we got the best possible experience during the week. He is also very easy going and very approachable. There are quite a few things I learnt right from techniques in field to the business of photography. The highest credit I can give Colby is that by the end of the week, my wife, who is just taking her first steps in photography had the confidence and swagger of a seasoned pro. We highly recommend taking one of Colby’s workshops. Believe us, you won’t regret it one bit.

Karen K
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.

Arctic Adventure of a Lifetime

Colby's knowledge in photography and the travel is unparalleled. Moreover, he is an open book willing to share his experiences and thoughts on topics from the most basic of photography questions to technical gear debates. Whether chasing the aurora in the Arctic Circle or finding the perfect seascape composition in the fjords of Norway, Colby will guide you through his approach. In addition, he provides ample opportunities during downtime to ask questions and review post-processing techniques. His workshops give you the best chances for finding color in the skies as well as elevating your photography to a new level.
