This very popular workshop is run with my friend and experienced Slovenian landscape photographer Marko Trebusak. We have been running workshops in Slovenia for over ten years and have amassed a long list of spectacular and interesting photographic locations throughout the country. Local knowledge is indispensable for making the most of this fantastic location and, although we can't guarantee the weather or lighting conditions, we can ensure you that we'll get you to the best photographic locations for whatever conditions we face during the workshop.
Slovenia is well known for its stunning northwest Alpine region, with deep gorges, high mountains and quiet alpine valleys. During this tour the hay meadows in the valleys and alpine meadows in the mountains will be full of wildflowers, butterflies and other insects. The Soča valley, with its amazing turquoise river water, is located in the heart of the Julian Alps, close to our base. At this time of the year the water should be running clear and the riverside trees will be in full foliage. The days are long in July, but the photography is always our priority! We will have two photography sessions each day, making best use of the warm light around sunrise and sunset. We will return to the hotel for a short sleep at night and a longer rest during the middle of the day. Although this will predominately be a landscape photography workshop, we will also be photographing some wildlfowers and insects.
We’ll spend most of our time in and around the mountains, so a decent level of physical fitness will be required. We will need to hike at times, but rarely longer than an hour in each direction. Our main base will be Kranjska Gora. This is a winter tourist centre that is well equipped with pubs, cafes and restaurants.
Transport is provided to our base in Kranjska Gora and we will be using an eight seat minibus during the trip, so no additional transportation costs will be incurred. Please keep in mind that landscape photography can be productive in almost any weather and that this will be an intensive photography workshop where we will try to fit in as much as possible.
