*This Dolomites Photo Tour is in partnership with Max Rive Photography.
12-17 July 2019
During this Dolomites Photo Tour we will visit the most amazing locations the area has to offer. Summer is a great moment of the year to be here, flowers are in bloom and give a colored touch to the majestic mountains in the background. Days are warmer and longer so we’ll have plenty of time to scout around and try many different compositions.
DOLOMITES PHOTO TOUR ITINERARY
Pick up time is around 11am at Venice Airport, then it’s time to begin our Dolomites photography workshop. We’ll make our first stop at the apartment and then straight to the world-famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo.
A very easy hike will lead us to our sunset location where we’ll photograph beautiful Tre Cime. There will be flowers around which will work perfectly as foreground for our pictures. Depending on the weather will stay there for possible night shooting.
Ready to leave early in the morning to reach our sunrise location.
After some more photos in the morning and a recharging lunch, we’ll continue our way towards Lake Braies. Here we can spend some more time scouting for the best composition.
We’ll then reach Lago Limides for sunset. This lake is one of the most picturesque destination in the area for photography.
On the third day of our Dolomites photo tour we’ll be shooting the impressive Cinque Torri for sunrise. These mountains are incredible and their shape is truly remarkable. After lunch, we’ll drive to the village of San Martino di Castrozza.
In the area we have views relatively unknown yet very impressive. Here we also have the chance to combine a river with the mountains as a background for our sunset and sunrise pics. Once back to the apartment, we’ll spend time on personal post processing.
During daytime we’ll reach our apartment in Ortisei. The area is surrounded by some amazing locations, such as Alpe di Siusi.
If the weather allows it, we’ll visit a secret location during the day. This place is even more incredible when foggy. Then it’s time to make our way to our sunset location: Alpe di Siusi.
Sunrise will be in Alpe di Siusi, then we will reach Santa Magdalena and shoot the famous St. Johann church with the impressive Odle mountains in the background. We’ll explore different and secret locations for our compositions.
During the evening, we’ll spend extra time on personal post-processing.
Day 6 is the last day of our Dolomites photography workshop. After breakfast is time to drive back to the train station or to Venice Airport, this way everyone can decide to fly back home or spend some more time in the area.
