2021 Photo Workshops

February 12th – 19th, 2021

Join me this February as we explore this impressive series of Islands located above the Arctic Circle. While we will work hard to get you in the right spot for both sunrise and sunset, with over half the day steeped in darkness, we will make sure to chase any and all Aurora activity that presents itself throughout our time in the Lofoten Islands.

Feb/March 2021 (DATES TBD)

Winter in Iceland is one of those unique experiences that everyone should have at least once in their life. With this workshop, we will focus our time on the South of Iceland, focusing our time on Ice Caves, Northern Lights, and glaciers, but we will also photograph a number of waterfalls such as Gullfoss, Bruarfoss, Seljalandsfoss, Skogarfoss and more.

March/April/November Dates COMING SOON

Patagonia is one of the wildest, beautiful & dramatic mountain ranges on the planet. We split our time between the incredible Torres del Paine National Park in Southern Chile and Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina, home to both Cerro Torre and Mt. Fitz Roy.

July 2nd – 9th, 2021

Visiting Iceland in the Summer is one of the best times to explore this amazing country. Not only are lupines in bloom and waterfalls at peak flow, but the midnight sun provides endless hours of soft beautiful light as sunset and sunrise converge, often providing up to 6 hrs of golden light each evening.

August 2021 (DATES TBD)

Uganda is home to some of the most incredible wildlife on this planet, including the endangered Silverback Gorillas. Join me on this incredible adventure through Uganda as we photograph Gorillas, Chimpanzees, Rhinos, Elephants, tree climbing Lions and more!

The Pantanal region of Brazil is known as the land of the Jaguar. Nowhere else on Earth is there a higher concentration of these elusive cats than this remote region of Southern Brazil, close to the South Amazon Basin.

October 2021 (DATES TBD)

The Italian Dolomites are one of the most impressive and photogenic mountain ranges found in the European Alps. As photographers have continued to look for new landscapes to explore, the Dolomites have quickly risen to the top of many landscape photographers bucket lists in recent years.

October 2021 (DATES TBD)

Namibia is one of the fastest-growing photographic destinations on the planet, and for good reason. With an abundance of wildlife, incredible Himba people and vast landscapes, it truly is a photographers paradise!

November 2021 (COMING SOON)

The greater Kruger National Park region of South Africa is one of the most incredible wildlife locations on the planet. With a mixture of private game reserves nestled up next to the park itself, there are plenty of opportunities to photograph lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and much more!

Nov/Dec 2021

Our focus will be on capturing the beauty of the Cuban people, culture, and architecture throughout the Island of Cuba. From the classic cars and oceanside highways in Havana to the cobblestone streets of Trinidad and everything in between. With so much uncertainty in the US/Cuban relationship, NOW is the time to go!

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.

RAJEEB KUMAR ROY
Great Person to Learn With!

In 2019 I joined Colby's Norway-Lofoten Islands workshop in February. Colby and his team of Pedro and Brian are highly professional, polite, humble, knowledgeable and always available and willing to help and teach. All arrangements right from airport pickup, workshop content, hotel accommodations, and time management were highly professional, even in the face of dealing with challenging weather.

I am looking forward to Colby's upcoming trip to South Georgia and many more trips with Colby. It is so good to work with you Colby!

Great for a non-photographer too!

As the wife of an enthusiastic photographer, I loved seeing the beautiful Lofoten landscape and aurora through the eyes of so many visual-image experts. On our own, Randall and I never would have discovered the special places we visited, or found the willpower to be there at sunrise or after midnight, in February. Unburdened by heavy equipment myself, I could traipse around each site and enjoy all the natural beauty as well as studying the interesting behaviours of a whole herd of photographers. Then, in the review and critique sessions, I got to learn about the fantastic possibilities for processing the photos afterward. Colby and Pedro optimized our field experiences beautifully, considering weather and aurora forecasts as they selected the site and time for each excursion. Then they got us there, safely and comfortably. I thank them both for the unique experience!

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!

Alex B
Magical Myanmar!

There are not enough good words to describe the experience of the workshop in Myanmar. Breathtaking scenery, excellent tutoring and a great group of people to travel with pretty much sums it up!

It was such a positive learning environment thanks to Colby, Erin, and the other participants. My confidence in my camera skills progressed daily, as the constant change of locations and subjects constantly pushed my skills outside of my comfort zone.

I can't wait to book another workshop! 🙂

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.
