Marc is incredible. What depth of knowledge and experience And such a patient teacher.

— Sally Cameron, Lightroom To Print ’19

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

This was probably the best-kept secret of your workshop. David and Kevin were available 24/7 for questions, not only during Lightroom sessions but on the bus and in the field as to how to use my camera, set up for shots, etc.

— Bob Slackman, Newfoundland ’19

Marc was amazing!! We knew about the talent but what he demonstrated with the group was beyond that. He was extremely patient and fun to be around. He made the grayish thing look amazing... I enjoyed meeting all the great people that were part of the shop and I would love to do it again!!! FYI.. The food was awesome as well!! Thank you for a great experience !!

— Tania Eubanks, Canadian Rockies ’16

This was the best workshop I've joined to date! Kevin was just an outstanding leader in every respect and Skarpi adds a wealth of local knowledge that makes for an outstanding experience. To top that off they are both fun and really good people!

— Andrew Partridge, Iceland ’18

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

Talor was very knowledgeable and the critiques were awesome. Talor Stone is a great workshop leader. Really made the workshop fun. Would gladly take another workshop with her as the leader.

— Austin Ray, Waterfalls and Wildflowers ’21

Randy is not only a professional photographer but also an excellent instructor. He did not save any effort to ensure the all the attendees were learning something new and all of their queries are answered. I would definitely take another workshop with him.

— Aziz Abdulrazaq, East Greenland Sailing Expedition ’19

Very active workshop, no time to dilly dally, which was great. Really enjoyed the setup and structure of each day. I'm really glad we had the food catered. That really beats having to go out for each meal and wait, particularly with the size of group.

— Jack Gillum, Arches and Canyonlands ’13

It exceeded my expectations. I really enjoyed the workshop. Richard has an enormous amount of knowledge and he explains things clearly. He is very good at giving critique and I would love to learn more from him.

— Robert Gandelman, Adirondack Fall Foliage ’21

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

Wow! I am still saying that after 6+ months! Great workshop! We had many photographic opportunities with great backgrounds and good lighting. Marc is a top notch instructor. Since we were on safari location, Marc met with each of us and provided critiques, etc. individually.

— Gloria Spellman, Kenya Safari ’19

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

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

— Chellie Hyre, Svalbard ’16

I was so pleased to find the workshop turned out to be much more than I expected. Andy takes such great care of people. I noticed this on several occasions, where he was very diligent in meeting individuals' needs, from photography to food and comfort! Marc was consistently kind, patient, and so easygoing. Both men really shined, which is not easy to do with the dynamics of keeping tabs on a group and maintaining a schedule to give us optimal opportunities.

— Kim Lewin, Palouse ’15

Both Greg and Tom were exceptional and very generous with their advice and instruction both in the field and in the classroom. They were an excellent team with complementary skills and perspectives. They made great efforts to provide instruction to each participant at her or his level and in many different contexts. Although I have attended quite a few workshops, I learned a great deal from both of them. Further, they are both truly nice and genuine people and it was a great pleasure to get to know them and spend this time with them. Yes, I am signed up for quite a few and this workshop only reinforced my appreciation for the approach you take. You have great planning and logistics, have found great locations, and all of the staff and leaders are excellent and provide great care for your clients. The leaders have all been excellent instructors, go out of their way to help all clients, are very conscious of safety, and just nice and fun people.

— Eric Herbolzheimer, Redwoods and Rhododendrons ’19

The workshop exceeded expectations! Randy and Ceci are outstanding professionals who work exceptionally well as a team. They obviously have a deep respect for each other and that translates well into the way they built their very positive relationships with us as individuals and as a team. Gotta love the way Randy leads, directs, coaches suggests, and shares his vast knowledge of the craft. Ceci is a great coach and knows the mountains like no other so her coaching on composition was particularly valuable.

— Andrew Partridge, Patagonia ’19

I would like to state my appreciation for the daily efforts of Muench Workshops leaders, Richard and Johnathan, for doing an excellent job. They kept us busy and moving, provided valuable critiques, provided ideas for our shots in the field, and were always available to help.

— Mark Frey, Adirondack Fall Foliage ’21

I totally enjoyed our wonderful and grueling photo workshop. I appreciated the detailed planning that you have made and Skarpi's enthusiasm in taking us to the best photo sites, night and day. I have finally finished reviewing and making initial adjustments to my images. Now I have a wonderful collection of images as priceless remembrance. Thank you and hope to join you again in the future.

— John Pan, Iceland ’15

Skarpi was a great leader. He's a fine photographer, patient, has a great sense of humor, and never gets exasperated or out of sorts. With this very accomplished group of photographers, who scattered to the winds at almost every location, he never lost sight of anyone and we always felt safe.
