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.

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

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

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.

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.

We learn so much from the critiques with Andy! Thanks!!!!

— Georgi Kleiman, Mongolia ’17

I've been on several photography trips with Kevin. He has been reliable and willing to go the extra distance for his clients. He is very knowledgeable about the places and subjects of his excursions and is a wonderful photographer. Always a fun experience, as well as informative. Highly recommended.

— Donna Passero, Yukon Wildlife ’18

Marc was totally brilliant in his availability and assistance with helpful photographic tips etc.

— Margaret Hobbs, New Zealand ’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

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

I got more intentional with my composition after all I learnt from David and Johnathan. I’m so grateful for the experience that Muench Workshops provides, I’ve grown more than I could ever imagine with just 2 workshops. Thank you for creating a community that fosters growth in all these amazing locations.

— Drishti Arya, Adirondack Fall Foliage ’22

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

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 had a great time and really learned a lot. I will definitely be on another workshop with you guys in the future.

— Marc Decker, Canadian Rockies ’14

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

I appreciated the professionalism from first contact with Jess. I continued talking with Jess throughout the whole workshop. Didn’t have to worry about a thing.

— Judy Bock

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

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

Greg Vaughn is a class act. He is an excellent instructor and a gentleman. Up till now, I have booked trips based on location, but in the future, I might book a trip I would otherwise not be too excited about if he was to be the instructor.
