What will I learn on this workshop?
You will learn the art of capturing timeless moments and beautiful memories through photography, how to improve and make instantaneous decisions regarding composition and framing, developing your own style, discovering tricks and tactics that improve the overall quality of your photography sessions, editing your work in a way that brings out the aesthetics and the feel of the moment you lived, and you will also learn how to make money doing what you love while traveling around the world!
What transportation options are available between the airport and our meeting point?
The best options would be to take the Train, Bus (FlixBus) or Taxi. Further information will be provided to those, once the final applicants have been determined.
What should I pack for this workshop?
It is important to bring a variety of clothes as I cannot guarantee the weather will be warm and sunny all the time. Make sure to bring clothes that are comfortable and easy to hike in. A more detailed list will be provided to those, once the final applicants have been determined.
What level of photography skill, experience or knowledge is required?
My workshop welcomes and encourages photographers at any level, regardless of ability or interest. In order for you to gain the most from this experience, I recommend that you at least understand the very basic functions of your camera including: manual mode operation, independent adjustment of aperture, shutter speed, ISO and file type selection (RAW or jpeg). If this is all new to you, don't fret! We will work with you and just pick up from wherever you are at!
Which locations will we be visiting?
The proposed itinerary is more of a rough outline of the places we intend to see - rather than a contractual obligation to visit each listed location. You can be sure that we will visit some of the most incredible places the Dolomites region has to offer. It may be necessary to make amendments to the intended itinerary due to weather, transportation issues or other factors which can occur with little or no notice. However, you can definitely look forward to some of my favorite places such as: Alpe di Siusi, Seceda, Tre Cime and I would love to show you some secret gems around my home town as well!
What level of fitness is required?
The workshop is constructed to be suitable for participants with a good level of physical fitness. We will not be doing any crazy long hikes but we will be doing a fair bit of walking and standing at the different locations.
I am vegan, vegetarian and/or have other dietary restrictions. Do I need to bring my own food?
As long as you inform me beforehand, I will make sure to pass on your dietary requirements to the various hotels, huts and restaurants, and request alternative options for you.
Which airport should I fly into?
The best options would be Milan, Munich, Venice or smaller airports like Innsbruck or Verona. Further information and advice will be provided to those, once the final applicants have been determined.
Do you offer private workshops in the Dolomites?
Yes, there is a possibility to book private tours in the Dolomites or anywhere else in the world. If you would like to request such a tour please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I can't make those trip dates. Will you be running another Workshop in the future?
It all depends on the demand. If more than enough people express interest in the workshop, then I will most likely organise another workshop week.
Will you be hosting future workshops in other locations?
For now, my focus is on planning and organising the Dolomites Workshop. But I would love to host a workshop somewhere else and it would be fun to host it with another photography friend of mine.
What is the accommodation going to be like? Will we be camping at all?
On this workshop, I do not intend to do any overnight camping at any of the locations. We will be staying in different hotels close to the photo spots we'll be visiting. The accommodation will be twin occupancy.
How long will we be shooting for every day?
This depends on the weather of course, but the aim is to be up shooting at sunrise and sunset every day. Why? Because this is when I shoot 90% of my photos as the light is most unique and soft. It is also very unlikely that you will run into other people during this time of the day, which is perfect for landscape photography. Be prepared for very early sunrises and late sunsets. We will make sure there is plenty of time to relax during the day, to have some coffee, eat some amazing italian food and talk about travel and photography!
