Workshop Testimonials

Julie P
Beautiful landscapes in Iceland

Another successful workshop with Colby and Pedro. Despite having visited Iceland several times before it was well worth going on the workshop because they introduced me to some new locations, new ways of photographing them and of course the weather and light conditions are never the same. Despite some bad weather we made the most of the time and I came away with some landscape photos I am very happy with. I particularly enjoyed the ice cave which was stunning and a new experience for me and seeing the northern lights was amazing. I also really appreciated the time spent learning new techniques in Lightroom and Photoshop which I will use on the photos I took during the week. I highly recommend this workshop, Iceland is a beautiful country for landscape photography with many unique locations to discover and going there with Colby and Pedro is the best way to get the most out of it and benefit from their years of experience in this country.

A great experience

I really enjoyed Colby's workshop. I learnt a lot about photography and also a lot about the business side of photography (which I found really useful). Be it website advice, social media advice, equipment advice Colby was always happy to help. There were all different skill levels on our tour and Colby adapted seamlessly to each participant. While we were there, Iceland had been hit by a lot of snow meaning the Ice Caves were impossible to reach unless you had a 30ft monster truck. Some people might have just apologised and said it's the weather they're unreachable. Colby found a tour company with a 30ft monster truck, managed to get us to the caves and they let us stay behind for an additional time after the other people had left. As he said: "I promised I'd get you to the Ice Caves, a promise is a promise". It was a fun, knowledge experience and I made great friends with everyone on the tour.

Land of Fire & Ice Magic

Colby’s Iceland workshop featuring “Fire and Ice” is an unforgettable experience that is not to be missed. With over 25 visits to Iceland, Colby knows EXACTLY when and where to put you to capture those images of which you have always dreamed. Though I’m not an avid camper, I really enjoyed camping on this trip because it maximized the photographic experience, allowing Colby to adjust the routing to avoid crazy weather and chase the light. Sleeping during the day and shooting at night meant we had the most stunning sites in Iceland all to ourselves with unbelievable light. Colby’s hidden gem destinations were definitely the highlight of the trip. And, using Colby’s favorite .5-.7 second shutter speed for moving water has been game-changing for me. I can’t wait to join Colby on a future trip!

Greg B.
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.

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!

Exceeded my expectations!

I went on a Colby Brown workshop in Patagonia to shoot the Fall colors with turquoise lakes and impossibly shaped mountains. It was a landscape I had long dreamed of seeing and photographing. Colby and his assistant Peyton Hale provided everything our group needed logistically as well as photographically. Whether I needed to change my money to the local currency or improve my skill in Photoshop, Colby and Peyton had an answer to every issue that arose on the trip. Peyton even gave me a spare battery and duct taped my headlamp together when I dropped and broke it. I am currently signed up to go to Iceland with them and hope to take many more Colby Brown photography workshops in the future. I highly recommend a Colby Brown Photography Tour.
