Brian is an amazing instructor. His knowledge of the intricacies of DSLR cameras and the nuances of photography is superb. His attention to detail is exceptional. But the advantage of taking a workshop from Brian is the patience he takes to work one on one with his students. I have taken multiple workshops from Brian and will take more in the future. He is the best.

Brian has been instrumental in my development in photography. He prepares at a detailed level for his events, and is as good a field guide as a photographer. He is a masterful source of technical information and as enthusiastic about the development of others as anyone I know.

Brian Leary has a miraculous ability as a tour guide. Here, both Elizabeth and I have known Brian Leary for more than a decade, and traveled with him on several occasions, in groups, while he was a professional photographer guide throughout the Western States. Brian has always been available as an accomplished camera technician when
issues arise, on all of our trips. He knows his cameras and can fix most problems that sometimes arise within the groups he is with. All trips are thought out well in advance, including accommodations, restaurants, and travel arrangements at the locations selected. Brian can satisfy the beginner, intermediate, and advanced photographer, all in a congenial atmosphere of cooperation and peaceful event. From California deserts to Oregon and Washington waterfalls, wide and narrow landscaping’s, using lighting techniques both during day while shooting rock formations and night time photography, from star trails to illumination within structures, Brian can always make the trip an occasion memorable to the exacting qualifications of beginner, intermediate or professional photographers.
