Join me, Ian Middleton, on my 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 spring, During these times the colours in Slovenia are incredible you can photograph beautiful mountains still possibly adorned in their winter snow covering. Spring is a beautiful time where the landscape is awash with a myriad of changing colours as the land awakens from its winter slumber.
We’ll visit Vintgar Gorge and Pericnik Waterfall 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 early mornings in order to catch the dawn and sunrise.

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.

Alternatively if you plan to stay longer you might want to hire a car.
In spring the days can be quite mild to warm, but the mornings and evenings 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 colder.
