Learn the craft of photography in an awe-inspiring landscape

Lakes and mountain small group workshop / photo day                                                     

Photography courses in Bled Lake, Slovenia:

The fairytale setting of Bled is a world famous town on the shore of a beautiful glacial lake surrounded by towering alpine mountains. The island church on the lake, sitting proudly in the middle of this immense body of water, is one of it's two most distinctive feature, along with the lake castle perched high on a cliff standing guard over the town. The beautiful karavanke alps form a picture perfect backdrop. On this one day workshop we will circumnavigate the lake from afternoon to sundown and shoot the island church, castle and all the surrounding mountains from all the best angles, and finish with a sunset and dusk shoot.

Group bookings: Group bookings are available on request.
Contact me for more info

Suitable for: Everyone from compact to DSLR users. This is especially useful for compact users whose camera is not advanced enough for the beginners workshop. Instead, you can come here and learn how to get the best from your camera.

Detailed handout: I know how hard it can be to try and scribble down notes at any kind of lesson or workshop, and so to this end I have created a detailed handout that covers everything, so you don't have to make any notes. You will use this on the day, plus it's especially useful to refer back to in the future when you go out on your own.

In association with our sponsor Lumiquest, we are now able to offer you the chance to try out their great on flash softboxes during our Slovenia workshops, along with a 20% discount on all purchases from their online store. For more info go here

Lindsey B "I think the "handout" Ian gave us was worth the cost of the workshop in itself. It's really more like a book and probably has everything I need to know with photo examples. But also Ian was a great teacher and explained things very clearly and in a way that was easy to understand by using examples. Even with the heat and hazy sky I ended up with a few nice photos of Lake Bled using the techniques that Ian taught us. Can't wait for my next trip to try some things out. I have much more confidence now!"

Getting there: Transportation from Ljubljana can be provided for up to 3 people. Or you can drive yourself if you prefer.

Accommodation: Accommodation is not included, but if you are coming from outside Slovenia then I can help you to find accommodation in Bled or Bohinj to suit your budget.
