Client Testimonials

I have had the privilege of experiencing two workshops; Zion & Page and The Best of the Pacific Northwest. Each was a great learning experience and also tremendous fun! Through his guidance in the field and post processing instruction he has taken my photography to a new level. Joe does his homework to ensure that everyone experiences the best possible light in the best locations. He has a great way of bringing the group together to ensure a truly memorable workshop. I suggest you sign up and see for yourself!

Want to save time AND money AND get those amazing shots you’ve always dreamed of. Then instead of trying to do it on your own and wasting time scrambling around, fighting for space with a bunch of tourists etc, sign up here and let Joe get you to all the best spots at the best times with the best light. There is one problem though... I just returned from this 2015 workshop and I don’t know when I’m gonna get time to work on all these epic shots I/we got. I guess that’s a good problem!

I have been out with Joe three times. Once on a tour to Zion national park, once to West Virginia in fall, and 3 days of private touring in Glacier National Park. Working with Joe has done two things. First, I have improved my composition immensely. I find myself spending a lot of time with Joe focused on how he visualizes images in the scene. Second, it has increased my knowledge of an area. Joe freely shares all he thinks about an area, and especially on private tours, expect to hike and see things you don’t normally see photographed. I recommend him without reservation
— Justin Berman
Joe is a remarkable photographer…his images are just breathtaking. When you attend one of Joe’s workshops you get his full attention and you walk away a better photographer. His engaging personality makes the experience all that much better
— George Walker
I attended the West Virginia Waterfalls weekend in May, and it was a superb experience. Joe is hardly satisfied with snapping photographs from overlooks, so I truly enjoyed climbing and hiking along with him to reach more unique locations. You can be sure to return with original photographs on one of his workshops. I plan to return for more
Thanks again for all the good things you taught me. The possibilities are endless
I highly recommend Joseph Rossbach’s workshops. His knowledge of photography and artistic talent are outstanding and he is an attentive and personable teacher. His workshops provide an excellent mixture of training and experience so that participants gain fully from Joe’s knowledge
I went last year. It was fantastic and Joe was awesome. GO!
Joe will take you places where most photo guides don’t even know about!!
— Bernie B. Villadiego
Joe is student oriented. He covers his subjects clearly, in great detail, gives examples, listens, and makes himself available even when the class is completed. Joe follows up with you to make sure you have no questions. You can always reach Joe.
— George Walker
Joseph has an artistic insight and passion for photography which are inspiring. He is able to enthuse and engage his students to extend their own skills. The suggestions concerning equipment, accessories, planning and technique are invaluable. I would recommend his instruction to anyone and look forward to taking more workshops and classes
— Susan Watling
I really had a wonderful photography workshop experience with you and friends in Shenandoah National Park and learned so much photographing skills. Your dedicated in photography is respectable and I hope and would like to learn and upgrade my skill with the professional teacher like you when I return USA next time. You always said “you do good job” to me, from my heart you are truly and honestly to say”you do good job”, thank you for your encouragement which mean so much to me!
— James Chan Pan-chung Taipei
Thanks for the great workshop. I learned a lot and had a great time. This was the first photo workshop I have attended and it was nice doing non-sports shooting for a change. The group was great and your enthusiasm was inspiring. I hope to attend another one of your workshops in the near future.
