This was my second trip with Kevin. I really like his low-key attitude. Without question, Kevin was most interested in our photographic success and having fun. He was willing to stay out as late as required in our attempts to see and photograph the Aurora. He was willing to do what it took to get shots for us. I have been on other trips where that was not the case.

— Greg Cook, Yukon Wildlife ’18

Andy - thanks so much for everything! You are a great photo leader, instructor, and super patient person. Your insights into how to shoot a scene have been very helpful to me and I'm already planning an outing close by to home to try some of them out.

— Keith Eisele, Italy Pre-Trip ’16

It was a great trip, from start to finish. Dan was an EXCEPTIONAL host, guide, teacher, and more. His knowledge of the area is unmatched. He knows every waterway, cove, island, and trail. We missed nothing: eagles, sea otters, sea lions, whales, bears, seabirds, and spectacular scenery. His easygoing manner and great sense of humor made the journey a pleasure. His wife, Janet, cooked for us several nights and could not have been more hospitable. The opportunities for photography were unlimited with a nice mix of landscape, animals, and birds. Thank you for the privilege of being able to spend time with Dan. He is an Alaskan treasure. My first trip there and I'll be back.

— Larry Benjamin, Larry Benjamin Private ’18

Andy was beyond hospitable and would have done everything possible to make certain that everyone was having a good time and had everything that they needed. Andy's outward personality and leadership are much appreciated.

— Steve Hollander, Galapagos ’13

It was a terrific experience. Greg and Tom are very knowledgeable and patient. I learned a lot and plan to attend another workshop soon.

— Karen Davis, Yellowstone and Tetons ’19

Marc, you are a gifted teacher...I learned so much from you. Andy, you are a more direct person and I liked the direct answers you gave me when I asked a question. Yes, the instructions were a blessing.

— Nancy Lynch, Africa Kenya Safari ’13

One thing that really sets Muench Workshops apart is the personal attention in the months leading up to the adventure. I was astonished that Andy called me directly to talk about the workshop when I emailed my interest. It meant the world to me that he cared enough to work with me to help me get to the point of being able to make the decision to attend. The opportunity to ask him questions during the prep for the workshop was fantastic and helped take some of the guesswork out of the prep regarding adequate layers. As it turned out, without that interaction, I would not have upgraded my already significant cold-weather gear (which was critical for this adventure) ...and been cold. I never expected -20 degree boots would not be sufficient!

— Debbie McIntosh, Mongolia Winter Migration ’19

I could not have been more pleased with the overall experience and with the knowledge that I gained. I would not hesitate to recommend Muench Workshops to anyone

— Joe Filer, Big Sur Big Print ’13

Kevin, thank you for a terrific experience in Russia & Siberia. Your soft touch style was perfect for me as I am used to doing my own thing. But, I appreciated how you kept us on course and worked so well with Vladimir. He also did a phenomenal job and I personally enjoyed the mix of landscape, people, and night shooting. Siberian road adventures aside, the trip had a nice balance including a slice of Moscow. I enjoyed learning from your photography and travel experiences and the drone lesson too.

— Matt Conti, Lake Baikal and Reindeer Herders ’20

You guys always put your heart and soul into these trips, and it shows—can't wait for more adventures :).

— Chellie Hyre, Svalbard ’16

Special note: Although all Muench people were superb, I want to pay special note to Lisa. She is a real gem. Her knowledge teaching skills and ability to communicate with groups and individuals are incredible.

— Dennis Steinauer, Antarctica ’18

I can't say enough good things about other than I would really like to do more trips and or workshops with Michael in the future!!!

— Bob Shaw, Acadia ’18

Kevin was an enormous asset! His knowledge of equipment, techniques, and software skills far exceeded my expectations.

— Jason Lorenz, Wild Utah Night Skies ’21

This was our 6th outing with Muench Workshops and I can't say enough good things about Marc Muench and Andy Williams. Aided by local Viking Skarphedinn Thrainsson they provided a once-in-a-lifetime photographic experience. Every time I go out with them I learn something about photography. Beyond that, they went above and beyond in taking care of our group. If any of my photographer friends are considering a workshop they can't go wrong by going with Muench Workshops.

— Harry Behret, Iceland ’15

Noel and Michael were simply fantastic. They are both so passionate about photography and share their love for it through guiding, teaching. They really cared, too, about our comfort and how we were doing when the hiking was tough. I think I should just adopt them both. True professionals. They read the weather conditions and made the best choices for us to get beautiful images. They knew every spot, scouted ahead of time. They were able to change on a dime with our plans as the weather changed fast. They worked with each student to help us with details of lens choices, aperture, and ISO, speed, composition. And the Lightroom sessions were great, both personal help and group sessions. I learned so much. I am not as experienced as many were on the trip and it was a terrific experience.

— Sally Cameron, Canadian Rockies ’18

Randy is an excellent instructor. Period. If I were a novice, I would have been floored by his ability to teach. Randy is approachable and has a lot to offer in the education department.

— Chelsea Tischler, Tanzania Randy ’16

Of the several photo workshops I have attended, this one had the best instruction. Michael and Mike were proactive in offering help and advice. The critiques were honest, helpful, and encouraging.

— John O’Neil, Glacier National Park ’19

I learned so much. Both Marc and Andy were great and couldn't do enough to help in every way possible.

— Steve Hollander, Galapagos ’13

Marc is sooo patient and thorough. I actually retained some things!

— Steve Hallmark, Santa Barbara Outback ’13

The best workshop I have ever been on. Andy kept on raising the bar each day. I saw and experienced Mongolia in the way that I always dreamed about. The only way to describe this workshop is EPIC. The memories will last a lifetime.

— Larry Blau, Mongolia ’17
