Workshop Testimonials

Elizabeth Brooke
I would go again!!!

This trip to Namibia was my second trip with Colby and I plan on a third with him in January 2023 in Costa Rica. Colby has traveled globally for decades and has a deep understanding of each country where he offers workshops. This is advantageous for us as he has done all the advanced groundwork and location scouting, optimizing our time. Colby also secured the best accommodations as we traveled to each spot in Namibia. Both workshop groups were small enough for individual attention when needed and diverse enough to provide each other with our unique photographic perspectives. We ranged in age from early 20's to mid-70's and varied in our skill level but we were a cohesive and mutually supportive group. I look forward to photographing hummingbirds and learning new macro skills with Colby in January.

Good times..great photos!

I had been stuck in a photographic rut, suffering from a major lack of motivation for quite some time prior to joining the Iceland winter workshop. Taking a chance and joining this workshop has done wonders for my photography. It really helped me gain new motivation and refined skills moving forward. Colby and Pedro are amazing instructors and also masters of logistics when it came to navigating the extreme weather we encountered during our trip. I am extremely satisfied with their fortitude and effort when it came down to putting us in the best locations with given weather challenges throughout the duration of the workshop!

A different world

I had Myanmar on my travel list for years and after taking the Lofoten Islands workshop with Colby, it was a no brainer booking this trip with him.

The trip was meticulously planned with everything accounted for, including a great local guide and co leader (Erin). The itinerary was packed and I was pushed outside my comfort zone daily, encouraged to explore and try different things, which paid off big time in some of the images I captured.

I loved learning about the history and culture of Myanmar and the interactions we had with the locals left me with a smile on my face. It added a special touch to the workshop.

We had a great group of photographers, and I am still in contact with most of them. Thank you for the experience in Myanmar and bringing us all together!

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.

Jen B.
Brazil Workshop

I've taken 3 of Colby's workshops now and each one of them is better than the last! This Brazil trip is really awesome. Outside of the incredible animals, we had a very intimate group, the facilities were clean & comfortable, and the guides were wonderful about trying to get us as many Jaguar sightings as possible. I will say, while we did get a good amount of jaguar sightings, they are definitely a bit illusive and sometimes hard to find. But there are a lot of other really incredible animals to see on this trip as you're out looking! (TONS of birds, capybara, otters, etc). I loved this trip and would highly recommend it if you want a unique experience and a chance to see a very unique region and incredibly beautiful Jaguars.

Another Incredible Workshop!

I absolutely loved our Costa Rica Workshop. We went to incredible locations and took so many great photos. It is very apparent that Colby loves Costa Rica, Photography but mostly he loves sharing his knowledge. He found the best locations, with guides that showed us things that we could never see if we were going on our own. You can immediately tell how many times he has been to Costa Rica from the connections he has made of years of repeated visits.

I met Colby in October 2022 when I joined his Namibia workshop. So going on another workshop with him 3 months later says it all. In fact, we had 4 participants from our Namibia workshop that joined the Costa Rica workshop. As they say "birds of a feather flock together" pun intended. Colby, is able to to attract fun, interesting and kind participants that are joy to spend 10 days with. We have formed friendships that will go on for years and years.

I am already planning my next Colby adventure! I cannot recommend him high enough as a person and photographer.
