Slovenia is packed with treasures, making it a perfect location for a landscape photography workshop. Characterised by towering mountains, picture-perfect lakes, deep gorges and incredible turquoise rivers, it is an area of immense natural beauty, rich in photographic opportunities.

The northernmost Alpine region is the focus of our five-day workshop as we take in Slovenia’s stunning lakes and mountains. Triglav National Park, which contains a range of mountains known as the Julian Alps, is nothing short of breathtaking. Its jewel is Lake Bled, a glacial lake in the foothills of the Julian Alps. Picturesque Bled Island, with its 15th-century church set against the backdrop of a medieval castle and towering mountains, is one of the most photogenic spots in the area.

Just a short drive away lies the picturesque valley of Bohinj. Its lake, backed by mountain peaks and surrounded by colourful beech woods, offers beautiful reflections and is especially magical at dawn.

Two very picturesque churches are found in this area, and we will photograph them both. St Primoz’s church, near Jamnik, is one of the most beautifully located and a magical sight early in the morning. The other, the church of Saint Thomas, with a backdrop of the towering Kamnik Alps, is one of Slovenia’s most iconic views.

Another of our locations is the dramatic 1.6-kilometre-long Vintgar Gorge. Carved by the Radovna River 150m deep into the mountains, its waterfalls, pools and fast-flowering waters provide plenty of opportunities for photography.

A visit to Slovenia wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Soča Valley, which lies in the heart of the Julian Alps. Home to turquoise rivers and breathtaking waterfalls, we will explore this area, travelling over the spectacular Vršič Pass en route to capture some dramatic alpine scenery. One of the most impressive waterfalls there is Kozjak. At fifteen metres high, it is located in a striking rocky amphitheatre with a beautiful emerald green pool at its base.

This workshop has been timed for mid-October, the optimum time to photograph the fabulous autumn colours for which this region is known, which is in full swing, plus the chance of some snow-capped mountains. At this time of the year, there is also a high possibility of misty mornings, adding further atmosphere to the landscape. We will rise at dawn each day to make the most of the soft light. When possible, we will also take time to critique together some of the images we have taken before dinner at a carefully chosen Slovenian restaurant, where we will have the chance to try some fabulous local cuisine.
