Dolomites Alps
Dolomites is a unique example of natural beauty and greatness on our planet. These places are Mecca for photographers from all around the world. Not surprising at all, because here unique landscapes replace each other just like postcards in souvenir shops. Snow-capped mountain peaks, deep forests, emerald rivers and turquoise lakes get lost in the valleys of the Dolomites, as if pearl necklace fallen to pieces.
Professionals and amateurs come here from all the corners to see and to capture the elusive beauty of these landscapes. And the most picturesque time is Indian summer.

First colds come, mountain's forest is touched by golden and red colours, and the dreamlike silhouettes are transforming into pied and bold landscapes. To take pictures of this kind of nature is a pure pleasure! That is why we as enthusiastic photographers and seekers of the most beautiful places on the planet, go here.

Developing the route for the workshop we tried to foresee all the nuances to create a unique photo-adventure for you. We won't spend long hours in the car going to a spot, but enjoy and shoot each dawn and sunset in a new place and cover all top photo-locations. Each hotel on our way is 4* with Spa area, which allows us to have rest and relax in hot springs after hiking.

Photo workshop schedule
For several years on end, we explored the Dolomites, searched for the best locations, photo spots and comfortable hotels. And now, we offer this truly unique photo tour.
Day 1 (5th October)
We meet you at Venice airport.
All together we start the way to the very heart of the Dolomites Alps. Tre Cime di Lavaredo National Park is our first location.
The first few days we stay at one of the most beautiful hotels Grand Hotel Misurina, located at 1756 meters above sea level. The hotel offers stunning view of Lake Misurina and the mountain view of Tre Cime di Lavaredo.

The famous «Trio» is one of the most popular and beautiful places in the Alps.
Like a crown of the entire valley of mountain passes, this trident towers are an ideal object for a landscape painter. Besides the unconditional and unique beauty of these mountains, lakes that perfectly paint in astonishing landscape surround them.

These three Giants are the main characters of our first sunset photos.
    Day 2 (6th October)
    Truly photographer meets the dawn not in a warm bed, but at the place of shooting fully armed. At the Golden Hour we take pictures on Lake Misurina, conveniently located at the foot of our hotel. Here we try to catch the smooth reflection of the Gruppo del Sorapis mountain massif on the water of lake. Once the weather is good we can get alpenglow mountain's peaks, which perfectly reflected on smooth water surface, like in mirror.

    For the sunset light we go to the foot of Tre Cime di Lavaredo. We have to overcome a simple mountain track (~1 hour) to go around the mountains from the (highlighted) side we need. But every expended effort will pay off when we see the extensive mountain panorama of the valley, illuminated by the golden autumn sun. This exciting sight will be remembered not only on our pictures, but also deep in our hearts a long time after.
      Day 3 (7th October)
      Today we wake up earlier to get sunrise point of most desirable and beautiful places for any photographer — Lago Di Braies. This is undoubtedly the pearl of Dolomites! In the afternoon there are crowds of tourists here, we come catch the first rays of the sun. The lake is surrounded by mountain ranges, which are covered with coniferous and deciduous forests. In the fall you can get a plenty of colors here. It is here where there is the emerald — blue lake with a string of wooden boats, as if it was a snake creeping from the old wooden pier. Perfect location for a landscape picture.

      In the evening we go to another important place — the valley of Val di Funes. This wide green mountain valley is strewed with small towns and churches. The picturesque panorama is crowned with a view of the mountain peaks of Sass Rigais and Furchetta, which are perfectly alpenglow by a sunset sun.
      Day 4 (8th October)
      After a tough day we enjoy a longer sleep, but at 9 a.m. we will be awaited by the lift in Ortisei, to go up to the highest point of our trip (2500m) to the top of the mountain Seceda, where we enjoy one of the most breathtaking views.

      Later this evening, we go to the Val di Funes again, but to another part of it, where we'll get a new photo-location — a small church ideally located for sunset light, surrounded by green fields and mountain slopes.
      Day 5 (9th October)
      Andagainanearlywakeupbeforesunrise! Going further into the Alps, we meet the dawn in Val Gardena. Inside this valley, there is the plateau Alpe di Siusi, surrounded by gently rolling hills with sparse wooden houses that seem to sway on the waves-hills. We have an amazing sunrise landscape full of light and vast.

      At day time we rest a little bit at our comfortable rooms of Löwenhofhotel or relax in Spa, but after lunch we set off to an amazing and absolutely magical place in the depths of the mountain range. The track to the evening location takes about 2 hours. But you won't regret any minute of it, because not only ultimate goal, but the road itself deserves the attention of the photographer. Also, this is a very rare and unique place hidden from tourists and onlookers. So from this photo-trip you will definitely bring photos that no one else would have.
      Day 6 (10th October)
      Today we deserve to relax and we spend the whole day in the best SPA of the Dolomites — the QC Terme complex.
      Day 7 (11th October)
      The unsurpassed landscapes of the crystal clear Carezza Lake enableto fall in love from the very first second. This is a place of real power, the emerald lake is surrounded by a fascinating view of mountain chain peaks hidden behind the tops of coniferous trees. Here we will shoot a scarlet dawn. At sunset, we go to the little-known lake, located on the 2200m high pass, where we photograph the mountain range at the reflection of the setting sun.
      Day 8 (12th October)
      Departure day. We go to Venice, but on the way we have prepared another surprise for you. A small church located literally in the rock as if an illustration from a fairy tale, saturated with magic and charm.
