Workshop Testimonials

Parker S
Great for Photographers of all levels!

Do not be intimidated to sign up for a photo workshop because you're not an experienced photographer! Colby does an outstanding job of simplifying and teaching concepts, and is more than willing to spend ample time working with you personally. I came in having very little photography background and I learned more than I could of imagined. Not to mention, Colby is very welcoming and easy to get along with. This was my first experience with photography workshops and it will certainly not be my last. Thanks again for an incredible experience!

Tony
Worth the Wait!

This was a trip originally booked for April 2020 visiting Patagonia from both Chile and Argentina. Due to ongoing difficulties in crossing the border the trip was reoriented around Chile and the Torres del Paine National Park. This gave us the opportunity to get much more intimate with this area of outstanding natural beauty and it does mean that the Argentinian side is there for a potential future trip.
During the Pandemic Colby kept us informed and shared his plans as best he could for the potential dates for the rescheduled trip and his communication throughout has been excellent.
Colby assisted by his partner Pedro and their local guide Rodrigo provided my best photography trip yet. They were always available out on location without being intrusive, gave great advice and suggestions, and answered any questions. During our downtime periods, they both made themselves available for guidance on camera settings processing tips and tricks. They were also happy to make their equipment available for handling and testing.

It was a fabulous learning experience and a really enjoyable workshop complemented by the incredible dynamics within the multi National group. The leaders relaxed ways rubbed off on all of us from day 1.

Rodrigo provided the extra local knowledge and was very accommodating in doing small side excursions, giving great tips on different locations, including helping us set up a car lights trail shot. His knowledge of wild life is particularly impressive.

The trip had great landscape locations, wildlife and Milky Way opportunities. The light was so varied and the weather unpredictable, but if you didn’t like it, wait half an hour and it will have changed!

In summary the locations were fabulous, the hotels comfortable, their staff very friendly, the food excellent, the master classes from the leaders first class and the group dynamics superb with everyone learning from everyone and helping each other to get better., with plenty of fun and laughs along the way.

Just one word of warning, bring a spare 2tb external drive, you will need it!

Suzanne Harrison
Workshop in the Pantanal region of Brazil

My 15-year-old son and I were lucky to have Colby all to ourselves on this adventure photographing jaguars and other wildlife in the jungle of Brazil. Not only is Colby a master photographer, he is an incredible guide and has the perfect demeanor to head up the multitude of challenges that can be found when traveling to remote locations. He was wonderful with my son — gave him lots of encouragement and positive feedback and was also comfortable redirecting him when necessary. Colby is generous with his time and worked with my son on crafting and editing some exquisite photos, taking into account the lighting, backdrop, movement, etc. We will definitely engage Colby for another wildlife photography tour — if you love photography you will be over the moon with Colby Brown!

A Bucket List Must Do!

This was my second workshop with Colby, and the adventure exceeded my expectations again!

We had an amazing journey searching for chimpanzees at Kibale Naitonal Park and enjoyed both a land and river safari where we captured incredible images of all types of Ugandan wildlife at Queen Elizabeth National Park. Of course, the highlight of the trip was our trek to find and photograph the Silverback Gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The name says it all and it left an indelible mark on all of us as we followed our guide literally cutting a path through the jungle to these majestic gorillas. Wow! What a thrill of a lifetime! Seeing them in the wild is absolutely a “must do” bucket list item for all nature lovers out there!.

As an alumnus of the CB photography workshops, the constant themes have been education, high energy, and fun-filled. I also met great people who have become friends for life as we share our love of photography.

Highly recommended for anyone looking for adventure and wanting to grow in their photography skills no matter the level. Well done, Colby!

Worth the cold

I have been on 3 of Colby's workshops and some of my best photos are from the Lofoten Islands. Enduring freezing weather and extreme winds was totally worth it. We only got one night of the aurora but it was glorious. Norway is a much different landscape than my home state of Texas and I greatly enjoyed this and the snow.

Megan J.
Love the workshops

I've been on two trips with Colby. Iceland in the summer and Norway in the winter. Both were very different experiences, but I could see my skill growing with each trip. Colby knows great spots to hit for amazing light and can answer any question you throw at him. I love the groups because I learn from the questions they have and the different views everyone has. The trips are fun and beneficial. I will definitely be going back to these places someday.
