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

Greg has to be one of the most kind and patient photographers/human beings I have ever met. His photographic knowledge and knowledge of Olympic national park are outstanding.

— Charles Taylor, Olympic National Park ’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

Randy was very attentive to individual participants with instructions in the field and reviewing the pictures. He did a great job providing maximum services at the hotels and restaurants. Skarpi was very good at getting us to the site at the right time of day and putting us in the right position to shoot.

— Frantz Vincent, Iceland Highlands Randy ’16

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

Both Tom and Greg were very helpful in teaching composition in the field. In addition, Greg sorted out most if not all my problems with Lightroom which was no small task. In fact, despite his obvious deep knowledge of Lightroom, he mentioned a couple of my issues he had not seen before. But he persisted and solved the issues.

— Bob Slackman, Olympic National Park ’21

Marc's classroom critique was the best I have experienced. He has a nice touch that is substantive yet does not intimidate. His balanced comments and demonstrations were most helpful to everyone.

— Eugene Wewerka, Death Valley ’14

Lisa LaPointe is an excellent mentor. She found ways to teach at all levels. I admired her ability during review sessions to take a mundane image and find ways to improve it, all without distressing the maker.

— Dennis Landis, South Texas Wildlife ’21

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

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

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

I had been to only a few photo workshop in the past. I came away mostly feeling they weren't worth the effort. You guys are leagues above, and have caught my interest in attending another of your workshops.

— Eugene Wewerka, Death Valley ’14

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

Marc's creative ability and his patient approach make learning fun and easy. He is sincere yet laid back and I enjoyed his spontaneous comments and funny remarks.

— Steve Hollander, Galapagos ’13

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

Marc is amazing and has such a good eye. The critiques were invaluable to me.

— Steve Hollander, Galapagos ’13

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 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

I have been on several photo trips with Kevin over the past few years and have had an outstanding experience and adventure on each of them. On my last trip with him in Ontario, he searched and networked with local photographers to locate where we could photograph Great Gray Owls. We drove for hours until we tracked one down and had the opportunity to see one of my bucket list birds. He has always gone above and beyond to deliver a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I am looking forward to joining him again in a few weeks to travel to Tanzania for what I know will be a great adventure!

— Paul Shea, Newfoundland ’17

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
