Mt. Dobratsch, 26-27 January 2019
This workshop will be taught in ENGLISH!
Mount Dobratsch is a mountain right over the city of Villach (Austria) is definitely one of the most amazing locations for winter shooting in the eastern Alps. A road leads up to 1800 meters and an easy snow beaten track takes to the top of the mountain, where there is a beautiful church (the highest in Austria), an amazing mountain hut, and a spectacular view all over the Julian Alps to the south and to the Austrian mountains to the north.
This weekend workshop's goal is about experiencing real on-the-field winter photography in one of the coolest location of the area. There is the possibility to shoot from wide scenes to tiny details, from sunset to sunrise and night photography. Sleeping in a hut right below the top of the mountain means that we can get out whenever the conditions are great to take unique shots.
