Learn the craft of photography in an awe-inspiring landscape

Small group workshops on location                                                              

Seasonal Lakes of Slovenia:

In the Slovenian karst region of the west are a number of seasonal lakes, the most famous being Cerknica, but there are also the lesser known Pivka Lakes. When these lakes fill up, normally in December, they make superb photographic locations for landscapes and reflections.

Palško Lake is a hidden secret. Lying in a small basin this is a lovely, tranquil location surrounded by gorgeous karst hills. In late autumn, early Spring the colours provide ideal conditions for stunning backdrops.

Cerknica is the most famous of these seasonal lakes and offers some stunning sunrise and sunset opportunities

Early morning (pre dawn) and late evening workshops are available, subject to conditions, at one of these lakes: . The location will be decided closer to the date, as the conditions vary according to the weather. Naturally being seasonal lakes they are very much dependent on the rain, so be aware that your workshop may be cancelled or re-scheduled if all the lakes are empty due to lack of rain.

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

Getting there: Transportation from Ljubljana can be arranged for up to 3 people, otherwise, if possible, we can arrange to car pool with other members of the group.

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.

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

Booking: If you are interested in this workshop then you can book now. Full payment can be made 2 weeks before the start date. If the lake is empty in December due to lack of rain then your money will be fully refunded or you can transfer to another date or another workshop.


Once a booking is agreed you will be sent an invoice for payment, which must be paid at least 2 weeks before the workshop date, unless otherwise agreed or booking was made closer to the date. Payment can be made by bank transfer, paypal or personal cheque.


If your workshop is cancelled for any reason by me then a full refund will be given, or you will have the chance to join another group. Should you cancel for any reason after payment has been made then a full refund will be given up to one week before the workshop date, but after that a full refund will only be given if I have a minimum of two people on the date of your booking.
