An autumn photography workshop and course in the beautiful alpine region of Slovenia

Join me, Ian Middleton, for my Autumn Colours in Slovenia photography workshop in the stunning alpine region of this amazing country. We’ll visit two beautiful glacial lakes: Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj, and travel through stunning 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.

The autumn colours in Slovenia are incredible and on this workshop you can photograph beautiful mountains and gorgeous Fall Colours in Autumn. We’ll visit Vintgar Gorge and learn how to photograph fast flowing water effects, and, weather permitting, can also take the cable car up to Vogel Mountain to photograph the Bohinj Valley and Julian Alps from a stunning viewpoint.

We will be based at Lake Bled. The course will begin on the afternoon of the first day with a sunset and dusk shoot, then two full days from dawn to dusk and end on the evening of the last day. You’ll need to book your own accommodation for at least 3 nights, but I can help with recommendations.

Workshop will include early mornings in order to catch the dawn and sunrise.

Locations:

Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj, Vogel Mountain (optional depending on conditions), Savica Waterfall, Vintgar Gorge, Jamnik hilltop church, Local villages

what to wear

It will be autumn and the days will be quite chilly, 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. You will also need a raincoat.
