Slovenia in Winter Landscape Workshop
Dates - Available
I have been running this popular winter workshop with my friend and experienced Slovenian landscape photographer Marko Trebusak for over twenty years. We have amassed a long list of spectacular and interesting photographic locations throughout the country. Local knowledge is indispensable for making the most of this beautiful country and we will always do our best to get you to the best photographic locations for whatever conditions we face during the workshop.
Slovenia is a small country perhaps best known for its stunning northwest Alpine region. Deep gorges, high mountains and the quietness of the alpine valleys make for great landscape locations. Winter in the Julian Alps can bring deep snow and low temperatures and this is what we will be hoping for during this tour. Since this workshop’s main interest is photography, expect long days out in the landscape starting well before sunrise and ending with a group meal after sunset. We’ll spend most of our time in and around the mountains, so a reasonable level of physical fitness will be required. We will need to hike at times, but rarely longer than an hour in each direction.
During the last twenty years proper winter conditions in Slovenia have become far less common and much more unpredictable. Whilst Slovenia is always a very beautiful country to visit, the main purpose of this particular workshop has been to capture images of snow-covered forests and mountains and frozen waterfalls. Without these conditions winter is not really the best season to be photographing the Slovenian landscape! For this reason we have decided to change the way we run this workshop in the future. From now on it will only take place as a last minute trip when a decent amount of snowfall and prolonged cold temperatures have been forecast. This should make the type of images we hope to capture almost guaranteed. So from now on I will be keeping a waiting list for this workshop and will contact all those on the list as soon as suitable conditions look likely (and I have a few days available in my schedule). An initial email will be sent out just a few days beforehand and the first six who are able to make it will be offered places. No payment will be taken until the workshop is confirmed and everyone has booked flights. There will be a maximum of 6 places available, but the trip will still run even if we only get three bookings. We plan to have two to three full days of photography, as perfect conditions rarely last longer than that (before the snow starts to fall from the trees). We will use two 4X4 vehicles during the workshop. The price of the workshop will need to be confirmed when I send out the initial email offering places, but depending upon length and availability of accommodation it should be in the region of £895-1395 per person.
I appreciate this approach will not work for those travelling from further afield, but it will hopefully prevent disappointment for the majority of photographers travelling to Slovenia with me and hoping for true winter conditions!
