One of the best trips I had

Just came back recently from an amazing photographers tour to Costa Rica, with Photographer Colby Brown. Even though I have quite a long experience as an armature photographer, this was my first such tour. What a first time experience, the trip was! The trip was perfectly organized with great planning and perfect timing placing us in the prefect spots with the perfect timing to get the best shots possible. Colby has an amazing know-how when it comes to photography, equipment wildlife and every other small detail of the trip. I have to point out that even though we traveled during one of the COVID-19 surges every aspects of the trips was handled smoothly with no glitches of any kind. I can't wait to go out and travel with Colby again!

An Opportunity to Step into the Past!

The trip to Cuba was filled with interesting locations, beautiful, friendly people with a rich history trapped in the past! Your expertise with Sony cameras was a huge plus for me! You are a tireless teacher which was so appreciated!

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.

Just do it!

Italy on its own is amazing, but Colby somehow makes it even better. Also, the beautiful hikes help to balance out the delicious carbs, so it’s a win-win.

If you’ve ever considered taking a workshop with Colby, just do it already. He is personable, knowledgeable, helpful, and his workshops are next-level experiences. And he’s there for advice and helps long after you fly home. I’ve been on several workshops with Colby and keep coming back for more.

Go to Cuba...Now!

Colby Brown's Photography Workshop delivered one of the most unique, exciting vacations I've ever had. I went there alone and left with life-long friends. Seeing the country with people who know and love it (Colby and Renee) was magical. I loved bypassing the tourist traps, and staying with locals - it added so much perspective. My favorite day was the journey into the Cuban countryside to spend time with local cowboys. I loved starting each day with a photowalk - just wandering the neighborhoods to see what we could find. And Colby gives each client individual attention. I learned so much about my new Sony A6500. Can't wait to find time to go to Myanmar and Iceland!

John Yotka
Great Bald Eagle Workshop!

The workshop was a great experience, the eagle activity was excellent. Colby does a great job in organizing this workshop. The accommodations were very nice. He is very helpful when at the shoots and back at the accommodations. He helps with camera setup and tips on capturing the shots you want. He also is very helpful with post processing techniques. This is the fourth workshop I’ve done with Colby and they have all exceeded my expectations. I strongly recommend his workshops.
