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

I wasn't really sure what to expect as this was my first travel photo workshop. But it was truly beyond my expectations! I was most impressed with the professionalism and helpful attitude of Marc & Cody. I felt like they always had an eye out for us and wanted us to take the best photos but without hovering or dictating what to do.

— Peggy Anderson, Norway ’19

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

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.

— Steven Oboler, Iceland ’15

Lisa was the most amazing instructor I have ever experienced, completely selfless making sure each of us got everything we need, wanted, and dreamed of. Most all instructors I've had in the past are more interested in getting the shot, for themselves, Lisa was 100% committed to our images.

— Jamie Johnson, Mongolia ’19

The Monument Valley Workshop was the best, without any hitch. Tom and Greg were and are great. They were professional, well prepared, and very focused on the clients and the goals of the workshops. In the many workshops I have attended, they are the top of the group. Greg is a great teacher and always on the ball. Tom is a real workhorse. They represented and surpassed all expectations.

— Tim Needham, Monument Valley ’21

Wayne is great it's that simple. Night photography is so much about location and timing and Wayne got us set up and ready for some great shots. I would also like to commend Wayne on his follow-up for my and the rest of the group's requests during and so far after the workshop.

— Bruce Fortelka, New Mexico Land of Enchantment ’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

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

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

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

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

I just finished up an amazing photography workshop with Muench Workshop. The lead photographers Wayne Suggs and Kevin Lisota were amazing in their guidance to composition in the field and settings as needed. The classroom time for preparing for our landscape, astrophotography, and our post-editing education was top-notch. I encourage you to check them out and all the wonderful workshops that Muench Workshops offers.

— Frances Kuelz, Wild Utah Night Skies ’21

Randy's tutorials and onsite assistance were the best I have received to date in the many workshops I have attended from several different providers. Paolo also provided valuable insights aiding me to get the best out of each location. Together they made a formidable team providing a relaxed, good-humoured environment in which we learned much that will help improve our craft.

— Despina Tramoundanis, Tuscany and Cinque Terre ’19

As a non-photographer, I didn't expect to learn so much. I thought I was just going along for the ride, and doing my best to stay out of the way of the professionals. I'm so glad Andy took the time to give me a mini-lesson. I got my tuition's worth along with fantastic memories and pics. Thank you.

— Paola Lloyd, Galapagos ’13

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

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

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

I learned a lot. The one-on-one was great and very valuable. I would like to commend the two workshop leaders, Michael and Noel, for their enthusiasm, passion, and professionalism. They were able to adapt the program to the ever-changing conditions (weather, accommodations, etc.). I definitively got the impression they were genuinely interested in teaching us vs. taking their own shots & following their own agenda

— Michael Holzhey, Canadian Rockies ’18

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