Reviews
Zita, Hungary

This Dolomites workshop was my first landscape photography workshop experience. Before that I just travel alone or with my friends. I was so excited about this, because our guides was two professional photographers, Oleg and Robert! During the workshop I learned a lot from them about photography techniques, and editing tricks. We were lucky with the great weather, we saw beautiful colors and spots. The guys motivated us to wake up early, for shooting sunrises. I’m so satisfied with my trekking conditions, and it absolutely worth it! I have many many beautiful pictures, and beautiful moments at the spots!

The hotels were great, we had a delicious breakfast after the hard hikes, and we were eating original Italian foods at the evenings in friendly restaurants! We had a great photography group with good vibe!! A lot of laughs with good coffees and cakes! 🙂

I hope I will return to Dolomites again with these 2 photographer guys!
