Passion ignited

Written by: Colby Brown /

Lofoten Islands was the first photography workshop I have taken and as someone fairly new to photography at the time, it was also first time I got any hands on photography guidance. I was worried I was a bit over my head when I signed up, but the desire to photograph the northern lights outweighed my self doubt. From the moment I landed in the tiny Leknes airport, it was clear I was where I needed to be.

Colby and Peyton were welcoming, patient when answering my endless questions and helpful with everything from composition to gear to post processing. They provided individual attention and tailored the experience to each person as much as possible. As a result, I left a much better and more confident photographer than when I arrived.

Outside the fantastic location, epic light, seeing the northern lights for the first time and learning opportunities, the best part of attending a workshop is the people you meet along the way. Colby and Peyton are not only great photographers and instructors, but also great individuals, which in my eyes that makes the experience even better.

I left the trip wanting to photograph more, learn more and explore more. Highly recommended.
