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

The Plan

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
Your day kicks off with pickup from Ljubljana (LJU) anytime between 12pm & 3pm or from your accommodation in the area. From there, we’ll drive to our lodgings. Upon arrival, you’ll have the opportunity to settle in before embarking on our initial excursion. We’ll gather for an early dinner around 4pm. The day concludes with a sunset photoshoot at Lake Bled, with the sun setting at approximately 8:20 pm.

Days 2 to 6 – The Adventure
Each day during this period follows a similar pattern. We’ll rise early each morning to be on location before sunrise, typically occurring at 5:40 am. Depending on distance and conditions, we may need to start as early as 4 am. After capturing the morning light, we’ll return to our accommodation for breakfast and some relaxation time. In the afternoon, around 2 pm, we’ll venture out to our next destination. Typically, we aim to visit three locations per day, allowing ample time to appreciate each spot without feeling rushed.

Dinner will be had early to ensure plenty of time for sunset photography, which begins around 8:20 pm. With early starts and packed days, you’ll retire early each evening.

Day 7 – Departure Day
The tour will finish with a dinner around 5pm. The final day of your trip begins with a sunrise photoshoot, followed by checkout from our accommodation and breakfast. we’ll have the entire afternoon for further exploration and photography at other locations, or we can opt for a leisurely afternoon exploring the local town.

I’ll be arriving in Slovenia a day prior to the tour’s commencement.

Meeting Point: I’ll commence picking up participants from Ljubljana (LJU) at 10 am or if you’ve arrived in early I can pick you up from your accommodation. Once everyone is gathered, we’ll head directly to our lodging, making a stop at the supermarket to gather supplies for the upcoming days.
