A landscape photographer's paradise
Stunning mountain scenes
Our photography tour will take in a variety of great locations such as this view of Jamnik Church with the beautiful conical-shaped Storžič mountain in the backdrop.
This classic view is best photographed at sunrise, and at certain times of the year you can capture the sun rising right over the mountain peak itself.
The little church of Saint Thomas may not seem like much, but when viewed from this particular location it takes on a whole new look.
Looking out from this viewpoint you get an amazing panoramic view across the Selska Valley to the Kamnik Alps and the Karavanke Alps.
Magical Lake Bled
Lake Bled is the fairytale of Slovenia. It’s a magical place with breathtaking views from all around. The island church and medieval hilltop castle are all backed by the marvelous Karavanke Alps looking from the western side, and the Julian Alps looking from the eastern side. It can be photographed at both sunrise, especially in the mist, or sunset.
We will be based right here and you can shoot this lake from a variety of viewpoints. Maybe even extend your stay and do some more photography after the workshop ends.
Alpine Lake Bohinj
Wedged into a gorgeous alpine valley in the heart of the Triglav National Park, Lake Bohinj is the jewel in the heart of Alpine Slovenia.
Sitting serenely in its picturesque setting framed by the glorious Julian Alps, it is the largest permanent lake in Slovenia.
Like Bled, Lake Bohinj looks stunning in the early morning mist as it burns away to reveal the mountainous backdrop.
Waterfalls & Rapids
Alpine Slovenia is packed with waterfalls, lakes and raging rivers. The karst limestone rocks filtrate the water and channel it not only via rivers but also through subterranean tunnels which often burst out of rockfaces to produce stunning waterfalls such as this.
Peričnik Waterfall is a dual cascade with the upper part being the smallest (16 metres) and lower part, as seen in the photo, the largest (52 metres).
As we drive between locations you won’t fail to notice these interesting wooden features known as Kozolec (wooden racks for drying hay).
In particular the village of Srednja Vas on the Pokljuka Plateau contains some of the most interesting, including double racks all with lovely mountain backdrops.
Autumn & Spring in Slovenia
All my Slovenia photography workshops are timed for the autumn and spring. During these times the colours in Slovenia are incredible and you can photograph beautiful mountains and gorgeous autumnal colours or the myriad of greens in spring.
These workshops include early mornings in order to catch the dawn and sunrise.
My workshops are ideal for people looking to photograph the incredible beauty this diverse little country has to offer, but also learn and improve your photographic skills and eye.
