Join me, Ian Middleton, on my Autumn Slovenia photography workshop in the stunning alpine region of this amazing country. We’ll visit some beautiful glacial lakes: Lake Bled, Lake Jasna and Lake Bohinj, and travel through picturesque alpine valleys and mountain vistas, visit waterfalls, rapids and gorges. We’ll photograph lovely castles and churches, on lakes, beside lakes and on hilltops, all with magnificent backdrops.

We will be based at Lake Bled. This workshop is timed for the beautiful autumn colours, During these times the colours in Slovenia are incredible. Autumn is a lovely time where the landscape is awash with a myriad of changing colours as the land readies itself for the winter slumber.

We’ll visit waterfalls and rapids where you can learn how to photograph fast flowing water effects, and, weather and time permitting, can also take the cable car up to Vogel Mountain to photograph the Bohinj Valley and Julian Alps from a stunning viewpoint.

This workshop will include very early mornings in order to catch the dawn and sunrise. As the mornings will be early, there will be a break after lunch back at the accommodation for anyone needing some rest.

Travel insurance
(Guests must ensure they have their own travel insurance)

DSLR users ideally (but some advanced compact or bridge SLRs may suit. Contact me to discuss whether your camera is suitable or not).

Relatively easy but good footwear needed. Most locations and viewpoints are close to where the car will be parked. There will be a fair bit of walking on grassy terrain which could likely be wet and muddy. Good sturdy, water resistant boots are advised.

(If coming from the UK I recommend Easyjet or Wizz Air which both fly direct from London to Ljubljana. Other nearby airports are Trieste in Italy or Venice. (Otherwise contact me for advice)

For other flights try:



Airport parking:

If you are coming from the UK and driving to the airport, here are some useful airport parking websites:

Luton Airport parking

Or for any other airports check here

We will be based at Lake Bled. Bled is a 20-minute drive from the airport, or a 30-minute drive from Ljubljana. From Ljubljana or the airport I recommend you take the Go-Opti shuttle. Use this code to get a 5 euro discount on your first booking: RFLIBK8ABCQA

Alternatively if you plan to stay longer you might want to hire a car.

In autumn the days can be cold and wet, and the mornings and evenings even colder, so warm clothes. Ideally layers that can remove or put on as we’ll either be shooting before sunrise or after sunset, in the dark, when it will be very cold. Be prepared for rain.

Group bookings are available on request.
