I recently took part in the Senja 2024 February Trip, and it was truly incredible. Not only were we blessed with incredible weather conditions, but Tyler's dedication was exceptional. He goes above and beyond to ensure his workshop exceeds expectations. Tyler is genuinely easygoing, and chatting with him about photography, or anything else for that matter, was an absolute pleasure. Thank you, Tyler. I look forward to crossing paths again someday! Best regards, Philipp

Schedule

From my experience of running over 30 photography tours, having a fixed daily itinerary is limiting your chances of going home with the best possible images.

I work with the weather as much as possible and visit locations based on the best forecasted weather conditions. This ensures that I’m putting you in the right place at the right time.

Each morning will be on location 1 hour or so before sunrise, and each sunset we’ll be there until 1 hour after sunset.

The below will give you a rough idea of what the plan is.

Day 1 – Arrival Day

This is the arrival day. I’ll be picking everyone up from the airport around midday. Afterward, make the 30 minute drive to our accommodation at Pensión Török, making a stop at the supermarket to gather any supplies we may need. We’ll go over the plan for the week, and I’ll make sure we have our first photo shoot at sunset!

Day 2 to 6 – The Adventure

This is where the real adventure begins. Over the next five full days, we will be photographing during the best times of the day: sunrise and sunset. Each morning, we’ll rise early, regardless of the weather, to arrive at our location at least one hour before sunrise. After the sunrise shoot, we’ll return to our base for breakfast, and around midday, we’ll head back our to our next location, finishing off the day with a sunset shoot.

Day 7 – Departure Day

Goodbyes are never easy. I’ll be saying “see you later” with the hope that you’ll join me on another adventure soon. On this day, we’ll take you to the airport for your flights home.

Drop-offs back to the airport will be around midday. (This will be confirmed depending on flights)

Good to Know

Packing List – A full packing list will be emailed after booking.

Accommodation: We’ll be staying in Pensión Török, each participant will have their own room for the duration of the stay.

Flights – Fly to Ljubljana (LJU). I will fly into Slovenia a few days before the tour begins. I try and work with everyone in terms of their flights. All I ask is if you’re flying in on the day the tour start, just ensure your flight arrives no later than midday, if you can’t get a flight before midday, then I advise you to fly in a day or 2 earlier.

Meeting Point: We’ll meet at Ljubljana (LJU) around midday. After I’ve picked everyone up, we’ll me heading straight towards our accommodation with a stop at the supermarket to pick up some supplies for the days ahead.

Ending Point: Drop offs at the airport will be outside the terminal at Ljubljana (LJU) at midday.

Hiking – Many of the locations do require hiking. You don’t need to be an athlete but you must be able to walk on uneven, sometimes steep and slippery ground for maybe up to an hour one way.

Self Catering – All my tours are based on self catering. We will visit the supermarket on the day we arrive and gather what’s needed for a few days so that we can bring packed lunches with us each day. We will revisit the supermarket a couple of times throughout the trip too.  There will be opportunities throughout the trip to visit cafes and the odd restaurant if we have time. But primarily, we will be eating as we go.

UK Mobile Network – If coming from the UK, your data roaming will work and come out of your data back home.
