Lake Bled Photography Workshop – one day or half day

Join me, Ian Middleton, for a private 1-1 photography workshop at the stunning Lake Bled in Slovenia.

The fairy tale setting of Lake Bled is a world famous town on the shore of a beautiful glacial lake surrounded by towering alpine mountains.

The island church on the lake, sitting proudly in the middle of this immense body of water, is one of its two most distinctive features, along with the lake castle perched high on a cliff standing guard over the town. The beautiful karavanke alps form a picture perfect backdrop.

On this one day or half workshop we will circumnavigate the lake from afternoon to sundown and photograph the island church, Bled castle and all the surrounding mountains from all the best angles, and finish with a sunset and dusk shoot.

For the early risers, a morning workshop is also available, starting one hour before sunrise.

My Lake bled photography workshop is available as a private 1-1 or a group course (group booking together). My Lake Bled Photography Workshop is available all year round, but the best time is spring or autumn.

  • 5 star review  We spent 1.5 days with Ian covering Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj and the surrounding areas. Ian knows the area incredibly well and was able to take us to the right places at the right times for the right light and did a great job of dodging the bad weather! He was incredibly helpful and informative and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend one of his workshops.

Travel insurance
(Guests must ensure they have their own travel insurance)

DSLR users ideally (but some advanced compact or bridge SLRs may suit. Contact me to discuss whether your camera is suitable or not). 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.

This workshop involves a bit of walking on grassy terrain which could likely be wet and muddy. Good sturdy, water resistant boots are advised.

Camera (Obviously)

Tripod.

Remote shutter release cable.

Spare batteries.

Raincover (or umbrella).

Polarising filter

Neutral density filter

ND grad filters

Head or hand torch
(for working, and getting back to the car in the dark)

(If coming from the UK I recommend Easyjet which flies direct from Gatwick and Luton to Ljubljana. Other nearby airports are Trieste in Italy or Venice. (Otherwise contact me for advice)

Lake Bled is a 20-minute drive from the airport, or a 30-minute drive from Ljubljana. From Ljubljana or the airport I recommend you take the Go-Opti shuttle. Use this code to get a 5 euro discount on your first booking: RFLIBK8ABCQA

Depending on the time of year, warm clothes. Ideally layers that can remove or put on as we’ll either be shooting before sunrise or after sunset, in the dark, when it will be colder. In spring the daytime can be very warm, but the temperature can drop quite a bit when the sun goes down. Summers can be quite hot. You may also need a raincoat.

Check with me at the time of booking for more advice.

Group bookings are available on request.

detailed ebook

I know how hard it can be to try and scribble down notes at any kind of lesson or workshop, so to this end I have created a detailed ebook that is totally free.
