Workshop Testimonials

Stephen
one of the best instructors

I recently attended my first workshop with Colby and crew. Not only was I impressed with the quality of the instruction, but Colby worked to ensure I came back with fantastic photos as well. I can easily say that Colby is one of the best instructors on the market and have just signed up for another workshop because of it!

Cannon Spradley
Just do it!

Italy on its own is amazing, but Colby somehow makes it even better. Also, the beautiful hikes help to balance out the delicious carbs, so it’s a win-win.

If you’ve ever considered taking a workshop with Colby, just do it already. He is personable, knowledgeable, helpful, and his workshops are next-level experiences. And he’s there for advice and helps long after you fly home. I’ve been on several workshops with Colby and keep coming back for more.

David W
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.

John Yotka
A Beautiful Dolomites Adventure!!

I have wanted to see/photograph the Dolomites, I’ve done other workshops with Colby before and when I saw his Dolomites workshop I knew it would be just what I wanted. He didn’t disappoint! Colby is very knowledgeable and helpful. He knows the area and where to get the best out of the weather conditions to get wonderful photos. He is very personable and responsive to questions you have about how to get what you want out of a shot. I highly recommend any of his workshops!

Carla M
trip was absolutely amazing

In June 2013 I had the privilege of attending a workshop in Iceland with Colby. The trip was absolutely amazing, to say the least. Iceland is full of stunning and diverse landscapes and is easily one of the most beautiful places that I have ever visited. I had never been on a workshop before and did not know what to expect, but it was clear to me immediately (from the very first contact e-mail) that Colby was confident and experienced and knew exactly what the was doing. His knowledge of the area, weather and culture of the country was outstanding and it was obvious that he had done a lot of research beforehand. Aside from his sheer professionalism, Colby is a genuinely nice guy. He is kind and considerate and unbelievably generous with his extensive knowledge. He was always looking out for the group and constantly put our needs and wants first. I arrived in Iceland on my own and not knowing what to expect. Eight days later I left with amazing memories (and pictures) and a new friend, in fact a whole bunch of new friends from all around the world. I can’t wait to join Colby on another trip someday.

Colby and Lofoten Islands were Terrific

Colby and his staff provided just what I was looking for, a program to improve my photo skills and post processing ability in a most amazing setting. At photo locations, Colby would provide instruction on composition and perspective that improve the appeal of my photos. His expertise and attention to detail were readily apparent. Seeing other photographers work in daily photo review sessions also helped me expand the ways I would approach a scene. This was a most enjoyable way to improve my photography.
