Expertise 

Dolomites photography workshop and tour is aimed at photographers at amateur level and upwards; participants will need a good understanding of their cameras, so therefore, unfortunately, is unsuitable for complete beginners.

Dolomites Photography Workshop offers participants a chance to get high above lower cloud and shoot landscapes from awe-inspiring locations, due to exceptional access to high mountain passes and peaks. 

The workshop will incorporate sunrise and sunset along with changing daytime light within the landscape ensuring there are daily opportunities to undertake traditional landscape photography.

Northeastern Italy is home to the Italian Dolomiti,  while the range itself forms part of the Southern Limestone Alps, and probably boasts some of the most iconic and spectacular landscape and mountain scenery within the Alps mountain range. 

In addition, the night sky and landscape astrophotography credentials of the Dolomites is second to none!

Get closer to the stars and witness what some refer to as the “million star hotel” over the stunning mountain passes and Alpine plateaus; constellations are easy to pick out, and as a result of distinct ones, such as Orion or Ursa Major, along with the setting moon can be placed over jagged ridges, helping to create stunning landscape astrophotography. 

Another relevant night sky photography feature is, of course, the Milky Way, which in addition to the mountainous backdrop, can be amazingly beautiful, as can the constellations as single frame  images and panoramas.  Ollie is rennowned for pioneering night photography workshops across Europe, and holds nothing back on his workshops and the night photography tuition is delivered in a structured fashion backed up with PDF notes.

Dolomites Photography Workshop – Passo Giau 

Ollie runs his workshops in a like manner to his own shooting techniques, thus getting the best from the area and landscape, as opposed to fixing locations 100% but then possibly facing unfavourable conditions.

Dolomite Photography Workshop locations include Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Passo Giau, Croda da Lago,  Passo Falzarego, Cinque Torri, Selva di Cadore, Santa Maddalena, Lago di Antorno, and more to include lesser known areas not as frequented by groups of photographers.

Post editing sessions will also take place in the apartments on Lightroom and Photoshop as well as in-depth landscape and astrophotography planning sessions.

The apartments are located within a beautiful valley situated within Alta Badia, in a scene so picturesque you can literally shoot mountain peaks and low lying cloud from the doorstep or room balconies; there is also a picturesque church within the village that provides an excellent “roll out of bed” sunrise subject with Sass di Putia mountain providing the backdrop.

Due to the remote location, and some late nights, meals are of a mixed affair of food on the road, group meals in the apartments, pizzerias, and local eateries serving traditional Ladin cuisine.

In conclusion, the area is perfect for landscape photographers with an interest in nightscape photography, lake and mountain landscape scenery, bathed in autumnal colours, whilst at the same time wanting to explore the outdoors and venture into the wilderness.

Please note, as Ollie runs the Dolomite photography tours annually in October, and bases his dates on moon phases to enable both traditional landscape, and astrophotography tuition, the time of the month may vary.  Generally mid-October will see warm days, cold nights, and little chance of snow, with more chance of clear nights, and dates at the end of October, the start of November may see snow, rain, and generally moody landscapes with occasional clear nights; though naturally, in a mountainous region the weather is unpredictable.

The best, often less frequented parts of the Dolomites require hiking, and this workshop will incorporate a few days of famous, frequented almost roadside locations, and a few days of hiking to locations off the beaten track.
