Capture unparalleled alpine views and gorgeous autumn color
Day One - meetup, Rifugio Lagazuoi
After meeting at Venice airport we will drive to the heart of the Dolomites and begin our tour at Rifugio Lagazuoi, where we will have access to gorgeous 360 degree views right at our fingertips. This hut is more like a hotel, complete with restaurant and bar. After getting settled and acquainted, we will shoot our first sunset right from the deck of the Lagazuoi, where our two instructors will help guide you in getting your own photos of these impressive craggy peaks, with a focus on finding telephoto compositions that best show off these world-class mountains.

Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is for beginners, enthusiasts, amateurs and semi-professional photographers. Working with 1 tutor per 4 participants ensures that we can cater to your individual abilities and needs.
What fitness level is required for this workshop?
A moderate fitness is sufficient. Most locations will be only a short hike away from the car park, about 30 minutes of moderate hiking tops. Longer hikes can be arranged, though we have to take the fitness of all group members into consideration.
Is the tour itinerary fixed?
The tour itinerary can be seen as a rough guideline for the workshop. Weather in the dolomites can be unpredictable, and we work very hard to provide the best location for the conditions on hand. We have a vast location knowledge of the dolomites and will adapt according to the weather conditions so you get the best experience possible.
