The Dolomites Adventure Photography Workshop is a 7 day/6 nights workshop in the amazing Dolomites mountain range in Northern Italy. It takes place in the region’s most stunning season, the autumn, more precisely in September 2021. Autumn is the optimal time to visit the Dolomites as many of the trees have started to turn a golden yellow, and the shadows are getting longer by the day, as winter approaches. The weather is usually warm and friendly, and there’s often superb light. Another advantage is that the summer tourist season has passed, leaving many of the visited locations more peaceful. This intimate roadtrip is limited to just 5 participants, as I want to keep things adventurous, flexible and personal. We will be hiking to wild places and visit many stunning locations, see the list of possible locations further down.

My adventure/landscape trips usually involves some long days, so expect both early starts and late night sunset shoots to be part of this workshop. A reasonable level of fitness will be required as access to some of the possible locations will require hiking for hours, often uphill and even after dusk. This should be within the capability of anyone with decent fitness and determination. You will also need to be prepared for a variety of weather conditions as life in the mountains is ever-changing, but in general the weather is usually lovely in this season. I will of course plan our trip to ensure we get some rest during the daytime, but we will prioritize photographic opportunities. I want you to come away with as many bangers as possible!

This region hosts some of the most picturesque mountain scenery you’ll find in the world. The breathtaking peaks of the Dolomites rise vertically from dense forests and are reflected in stunning blue alpine lakes, and it’s no wonder the Dolomites is in the very top of most outdoor and landscape photographer’s wishlist of places to visit.

Possible locations on this workshop:

  • Seceda 2500

  • Tre Cime di Lavaredo

  • Cadini group

Each day we will be going to various epic locations, and in the process I will motivate your personal development and inspire and challenge your photographic approach. Together we will explore themes like consistency, preparation, developing positive habits, understanding light, living without fear, choosing the right gear, editing and other meaningful topics related to photography. Everyone can attend this workshop, and I guarantee that you will benefit highly, no matter your entry skill level. I will be working intensively to make sure you leave the workshop ready to set your world on fire!

On this workshop, I will help you to:

  • Create more meaningful compositions

  • Tell a story with your photos

  • Train your eye on incredible shots and convey the energy of the outdoors

  • Choosing the right lens. From wide-angle vistas to landscape abstracts with a telephoto lens.

  • Add more depth of field using foreground

  • Understand camera settings, but keeping it simple

  • Nail your long exposure photography

  • Place people to add scale in photos

  • Make your photos ‘pop’ more in post production

  • Be creative with your drone (if you bring one)

  • Shoot and edit with Instagram in mind

The workshop is structured to maximise your opportunities to get great images whilst improving your skills as a photographer. I will use all my experience and knowledge to get you to some of the Dolomites’ most epic locations in the best possible light, and I will be on hand to provide as much support, advice and guidance as you want. This workshop being a camper van road trip, obviously, both accommodation and transportation to all shoots is provided, as well as all meals during the trip. And in Italy we will be treated to a culinary feast! This workshop is also a fantastic opportunity to make some unique photographic friendships.

Leading up to the workshop, I will share my clothing packing lists, break down my go-to camera gear and give you a comprehensive look into the necessities that I bring on all my adventure travels. During the workshop I will share my experiences and give loads of tips to help you start finding your style in photography. The key aim of our time together is to have a lot of fun and enjoy being outdoors, whilst leaving inspired to take our adventure photography to the next level.

I am super stoked about this new workshop! What a dream destination! Come join me exploring the breathtaking and iconic landscapes of the Dolomites in September 2021!
