What to Expect

Slovenia is a palce of amazing natural beauty, a place where the photos just dont convince you this place is real. Well I can tell you, it is really and it is magical.

Alot of my clients would regard me a “mountain goat”, I wont disagree. But that doesn’t mean I don’t love a bit of chill and relaxation too. That’s exactly what Slovenia is,  a place to enjoy the landscapes in all their beauty and peace without the need for rushing around, panicking while looking for compositions.

Slovenia is truly spectacular, one of my favourite palces in the world. The people, the food, the dreamlike landscapes and the zen feel make it the perfect place to photograph and come home feeling like you’ve been on a holiday in paradise.

During this workshop we will spend our 4 nights in a beautiful, spacious self catering AIRBNB in the Heart of Bled. Everyone will have their own double room. This workshop is restricted to just 3 participants for maximum comfort and space both in the villa and the jeep. The villa has two huge bathrooms with clothes washing facilities, it has a fully fitted kitchen should we wish to cook if we don’t want to eat out (Bled is amazing for food and coffee) and we are right in the middle of Bled so close to all amenities like restaurants, cafes, shops and of course Lake Bled.

We can choose to eat in or eat out when we arrive but as you will be the one on holidays, I would suggest eating out and Bled has no shortage of absolutely fantastic restaurants.

There will be NO SET itinerary for this trip as I prefer to keep a close eye on weather forecasts throughout the tour to determine our destination and make sure we have the best possible weather that may suit a specific place.


Recommended Flights


October 15th 2024

Dublin to Ljubljana


October 19th 2024

Ljubljana to Dublin



For maximum comfort both at the accommodations and in the vehicle, I have limited this tour to just 3 people.

Having just 3 people along with a spacious and comfortable vehicle allows us to be as flexible as possible to changing conditions with little to no inconvenience.


The weather in Slovenia can be cold or quite pleasant in October. I would suggest bring clothing as if it were an autumn day in Ireland or the UK.

Temperatures can easily range from 5/6 celsius in the morning/evening  to 18/19 celsius in the afternoon.


Lake Bled

St Tomas

Sv Jakob

Vintgar Gorge

Lake Bohinj

Also some amazing, lesser known personal favourites I have found while I was there…


You will learn about shooting in manual mode, slow shutter speed, ISO settings, Aperture priority, the use of filters, why the polariser filter is so important and learning to get the best compositions (thinking outside the box)

You will also learn the use of sunrise, sunset & astro planning apps.


You will need a DSLR with manual mode, a sturdy tripod, grad, polariser & ND filters.

I would strongly recommend a wide angle, f2.8 at least and a zoom lens (24-105 and/or 70-200) lens for this workshop.

Why book with us?

YES YES, The rumours are true… We do have a knack of getting our groups in the right place at the right time, ensuring you capture a truly memorable shot you can cherish for the rest of your life. To us, capturing “the shot” is important but just as important is to enjoy the experience, when we get to a location take a minute to breath in the fresh air and really appreciate the views around us.

Not convinced?

When you book a trip with us, you get to sit back and relax. while we do all the driving. For our Irish workshops we have our very own Volkswagen 9 seater shuttle bus. The bus is a long wheel base, full air conditioned, extremely spacious and has ample USB charging points. On our tours abroad we also mostly book 9 seater buses and with groups no bigger than 5 or 6, ensures plenty of space and comfort!

Still not convinced?

Thanks to our amazing sponsors Whelan Cameras, 53 Degrees North & Formatt Hitech Camera Filters we have spare equipment like tripods, gore-tex jackets and pants and plenty of spare filter holders, filters and even shower caps to keep the camera dry during showers. All this equipment is readily available on our Irish workshops, should you need anything on an international trip, please just email us here to arrange this.
