Part of the Alps, the area includes some of the most beautiful peaks and ranges on the entire planet. Therefore, it is one of the most desired destinations for photography enthusiasts from all over the world.

Mountain landscape photography is one of the most sought-after and demanded modalities among landscape photography enthusiasts, and we are sure that a trip like this will not disappoint you at all.

At the same time, it is one of the best places in Europe for night photography. Undoubtedly, all of this makes it an extraordinary destination, as well as a dream photo tour.

In addition, you will always be accompanied by two of our photography guides, who will be there to help you at all times. Thanks to them, you will discover the most magical locations, while learning all kinds of photographic techniques, which will help you capture splendid images of the Dolomites.

What to photograph during this Dolomites Photo Tour?

This Dolomites Photo Tour is focused on landscape and night photography. The mountains of Dolomites are among the most beautiful mountain destinations in the world, making it an ideal destination for landscape photography.

During this 8-day Dolomites Photo Tour, we will be able to capture all the beauty of this region in Northern Italy. Among the locations we will photograph during the tour, we will highlight its wonderful blue lakes, its striking peaks, and many places with extraordinary panoramic views. However, in addition to the spectacular landscapes of Dolomites, we will also photograph many of the picturesque villages in the area, as well as their beautiful churches. There are so many options that you will come home with countless beautiful images.

Among the places we will photograph, we should mention some lakes such as Lago di Braies, Lago Antorno, Lago di Misurina, the picturesque churches of Funes, or the mythical Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Three Peaks of Lavaredo). All these locations are world-famous and extraordinarily beautiful.

On the other hand, this Dolomites Photo Tour has a strong component of night photography, as we will visit during a favorable time to photograph the Milky Way. The spectacular mountain landscapes will look even more beautiful at night, with the Milky Way above them. That’s why we will have several night photography sessions to maximize the chances of capturing extraordinary images.


Why do we choose this time of the year for this Dolomites Photo Tour?

Although Dolomites is a fabulous destination for winter photography when everything is covered in snow, many locations are closed during that time, making it impractical or very difficult to access them. That’s why we consider this time, early summer, ideal, as the whole area will be accessible, and we can enjoy several advantages from a photographic point of view.

On the one hand, we are talking about a perfect time to photograph the Milky Way, one of the main objectives of the Dolomites Photo Tour. By choosing an appropriate week, we will have ideal conditions for night photography (provided the weather cooperates), achieving the goal of immortalizing the magical Milky Way over the incredible mountain landscapes of the Dolomites.

At the same time, during this time of year, we will have great opportunities to photograph beautiful alpine flowers, which will be in full bloom.

Furthermore, the spring greens will still be stunningly beautiful, and the lakes and rivers will be at their peak after the thaw. All these factors will greatly contribute to offering us fantastic photographic possibilities, allowing you to return home with a great collection of extraordinary images.

For whom is this Dolomites Photo Tour?

Nevertheless, most of the locations we will photograph will be easily accessible, being close to the places where we will park our vehicles. In short, as long as you have a reasonably good physical and health condition, you can participate in this Dolomites Photo Tour.

Likewise, there is no age limit, anyone can join the Dolomites Photo Tour, regardless of their age, as long as their health condition is reasonably good.

RECOMMENDED PHOTO GEAR FOR THE DOLOMITES PHOTO TOUR

You can request more details in the "information" tab.

Camera

DSLR or MIRRORLESS CAMERA RECOMMENDED

We recommend you to bring a DSLR or Mirrorless system camera with interchangeable lenses, but you can join the photo tour bringing any kind of camera, including compact ones, or even a smartphone.

Wide Angle Lens

For example, a 14-24mm or a 16-35mm

A wide-angle lens will be of great value for photographing the beautiful Dolomites, as well as for nighttime photography sessions. It will also allow us to capture fantastic close-ups.

Standard Zoom

For example, a 24-70MM

An standard zoom, like a 24-70mm, or a 24-105mm, will be very useful on this trip. With that focal length range, you will be able to capture a great variety of the scenes we’ll find.

TELEPHOTO LENS

FOR EXAMPLE, A 70-200MM

Un teleobjetivo tipo 70-200mm será muy útil para capturar planos más cercanos de los espectaculares picos de los Dolomitas,  así que se trata de una lente muy recomendable para este viaje.

 

FAST LENS FOR NORTHERN LIGHTS

FOR EXAMPLE, A 14MM 1'8 OR A 20MM 1'4

A fast lens such as a 20mm f/1.4 or 14mm f/1.4 would provide the best results for our night photography sessions, although a wide-angle lens like the ones mentioned before will be more than enough.

 

TRIPOD

A STURDY TRIPOD

For low light situations such as sunrises and sunsets, as well as for night photography, a good tripod will be necessary, as stable as possible, while keeping the weight within reason.

PHOTOGRAPHY FILTERS

ND, GRADUATED AND POLARIZER FILTERS

Neutral density filters are recommended, as they will be very useful for achieving long exposures. Graduated filters are also recommended for scenes with high contrast, as well as a polarizing filter.

REMOTE CONTROLLER

REMOTE CONTROLLER OR INTERVALOMETER

Bringing a remote or an intervalometer will be a great idea, because they will be very useful in low light sessions, avoiding the need to touch the camera, and therefore minimizing the risk of moved images.

Anyone can join this Dolomites Photo Tour, regardless of which country they live in. Although our offices are located in Santander, Spain, our trips are open to participation from anywhere in the world, so we have clients from countries all over the world. However, Spanish will always be the language used during the trip (sometimes accompanied by English).

Our Dolomites Photo Tour will start at the Marco Polo International Airport in Italy. All participants will need to be at that meeting point on the day the trip begins, at a time we will determine, having to travel there from their place of origin. Therefore, you don’t have to travel to any other intermediary city before the start of the Dolomites Photo Tour to meet up with the rest of the participants.

For work reasons, I took this trip in two parts, the Dolomites in August and Slovenia in November. Of course, Sergio made it all easy for me so that I could complete the trip, even in two parts.

From the Dolomites, I highlight the two nights we spent in mountain refuges, especially the second one at the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, with a spectacular sunset and then doing night photography and the Milky Way, the whole mountain to ourselves, a luxury. Additionally, as Julio Castro, a great photographer and a great guy, joined us on this trip, all the facilities and help for photography doubled. And how could I not mention Funes? A magical place.

And of course, Lito Vitale forever!!!

Slovenia in November was simply spectacular. My best sunrise and sunset on the trips I’ve taken with workshopshototours.com. A sunrise with brutal fogs at Lake Bled, giving a fairy tale atmosphere, and a spectacular sunset in the high mountains after an impressive snowfall. Beyond photography, don’t forget to try the Bled cake.
