Workshop Testimonials

Megan J.
The Epitome of Adventure

Chasing the light! Staying up all night to see the sunset and sunrise pretty much at the same time was one of the most amazing things of my life. I got a taste for adventure traveling around Iceland with Colby and can't get enough now. If you are going to go anywhere in the world, you must go to Iceland. It is a land like no other that will capture your heart as you capture the beautiful landscapes!

BETTER THAN ANY CLASSROOM

I had a fantastic time with Colby and Peyton on my summer trip to Iceland. I learned so much more than I would have in a classroom. Having hours of great light and having instructors right there to give you guidance is something you can't pass up. Colby and Peyton were great with every person in our group, beginner to professional. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I truly came out of the workshop a better photographer. Thank you both for that!

Joe
one of the best investments

Attending a couple of Colby Brown's recent workshops has been one of the best investments of time and money that I have made in photography. When shooting with Colby I have always learned many new things. These lessons may apply to the act of taking pictures, or be related to processing and publishing... or even the business of photography. Either way, they are always valuable.

Madeleine Punde
Patagonia, the Light Seekers

There we were, in one of the most remote southernly parts of the American continent, waiting for the light… and it finally came.
I must say that this photo workshop was very well managed by Colby and his partner in crime Michael. We were at the right spot at the right time to benefit from the best creative environment possible. Colby’s scouting, experience and knowledge made it worth the entire investment.

We got to stay on this beautiful island, with one of most spectacular view points of Torres Del Paine which was perfect for early morning shooting. I will always remember the night hike. The starry sky was just so ominously fascinating and gave rise to the morning light on Mont Fitz Roy, which captivated, inspired and lead to amazing shots, a journey in itself.

Now about Colby… After years of practicing photography and doing some small workshops, I decided that I had to get THE experience of a lifetime. This was my first experience on a photo workshop with Colby Brown Photography. I had seen him in webinars, watched some of his blogs and I really appreciated the way he teaches. I was not disappointed, Colby is exactly the same in person, nothing to hide, all to give. Plus, I gained a wealth of information from all the highly experienced participants.

I would definitely go back to Colby Brown Photography Workshop for another epic journey.

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!

Lauren B
A Truly Tailored Experience

I'm a full time working photographer who is always looking to further my skills. After chatting with Colby I decided that his Iceland photography workshop would be a great fit for me and I was right. Colby pays special attention to individual needs and will keep handing out the knowledge for as long as you keep asking for it. I would recommend a Colby Brown workshop for anyone from a pure beginner photographer to a working professional.
