Ian Middleton: Photography - one day Photography Workshops & Courses

one or half day


all year

One day tailored photography workshop

Choose your location on this special Slovenia mountains photography workshop where I will take you to a choice of spectacular, easy to get to locations, with stunning mountain views.

Slovenia is a photographer’s paradise. Spend a day in this beautiful country wedged between the Alps and and Adriatic Sea and learn photography at the same time.

In the north lies the Julian Alps and the Triglav National Park, lakes Bohinj and Bled are backed my beautiful mountainous scenery.

Other stunning locations include mountains and churches at Jamnik Church and Sveti Tomaz. Or you can even try the Ljubljana Moors to the south.

There is also a great location in the eastern hills of Ljubljana that not too many people know about, where you can get stunning views of the Kamnik Alps and the Julian Alps, if it is clear enough. I can take you there.

There are many great locations from which to photograph the Slovenia mountains.

On this one or half day workshop we will shoot from afternoon to sundown and finish with a sunset and dusk shoot at a location of your choice (arranged with you prior to the date).

For the early risers, a morning workshop is also available, starting one hour before sunrise.

Any time of year is a great time to photograph this country so morning and evening workshops are available.

Depending on the time of year, 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. In spring the daytime can be very warm, but the temperature can drop quite a bit when the sun goes down. Summers can be quite hot. You may also need a raincoat.
