WHAT YOU WILL PHOTOGRAPH IN THIS PHOTO TOUR

 

… and many other locations far from the usual tourist routes and often unknown, which you will discover during the journey!

Calendario 800

PHOTO TOUR DAILY SCHEDULE

 

Day 1 – Arrival, Baita Segantini and Pale di San Martino

On your first day in Italy, we’ll meet you at 11 am in the arrival hall of Venice Marco Polo airport. Our tour operator will help you find the best solution for travel and will give you all the information you need to reach the meeting point.

Once together we will drive for approximately 2h 30 mins to Passo Rolle (1.984 m), where we’ll shoot the famous Baita Segantini and Pale di San Martino (3.192 m) at sunset.

After sunset we’ll drive for a few minutes to our hotel and have typical alpine dinner.

Accommodation: Passo Rolle
 


 

Day 2 – Cinque Torri and Lagazuoi

On the second day of your Photo Tour, we will leave the hotel after breakfast and move to the Cinque Torri area (2.361 m), a beautiful group of rocks near Passo Falzarego. There are many remnants of World War I left by Italian troops in this area, it is often called an open air museum.

We’ll have the opportunity to shoot this little mountain and visit the trenches, then we’ll have lunch at Rifugio Scoiattoli, a charming hut right at the feet of the Cinque Torri.

After lunch we’ll take a cablecar up to the top of Mount Lagazuoi (2.750 m) which commands an incredible view over the surrounding mountains and valleys. One of the highlights of the whole tour is the opportunity and privilege of sleeping in the hut at the summit of Mount Lagazuoi. This won’t be an uncomfortable accommodation, as we’ll have private rooms instead of beds in the dormitory. In addition to this, the Rifugio Lagazuoi has one of the best cuisines in the Alps and it also features the highest sauna in the Dolomites!

Overnighting at Rifugio Lagazuoi will allow us to shoot the last rays of the setting sun from 2.750 m over the Dolomites, resulting in an incredible opportunity to take stunning shots.

After the dinner we’ll assess the sky and if the conditions are good out we’ll shoot the Milky way and startrails.

Accommodation: Rifugio Lagazuoi (2.750 m)
 


 

Day 3 – Lagazuoi, Misurina Lake, Antorno Lake and Tre Cime di Lavaredo

This day will start early (for those willing), about one hour before dawn, we’ll photograph the sun’s first rays hitting the peaks of the mountains.

After a great sunrise session we’ll have a continental breakfast at the hut and some time to rest and pack our things up before moving to the next location.

We’ll descend with by cablecar and we’ll drive via a road with panoramic views to Misurina Lake and the beautiful Antorno Lake, only 30 km away.

We’ll have a quick lunch on the lakeshore and purchase some sandwiches to take away, which will be our dinner.

After lunch we’ll move by car to Rifugio Auronzo (2.320 m), where we’ll park and proceed on foot for 1,5 hours, an easy hike, to get to famous Rifugio Locatelli (2.450 m) in front of Three Sisters (Tre Cime). We’ll ltry and find the best vantage point and wait for the sun to set over the Tre Cime, the Piani Lakes and Mount Paterno.

Immediately after sunset we’ll begin the walk back to our car, to make the most of the remaining light before darkness falls. Our dinner tonight will be an unglamorous sandwich and some fruit, our return to civilization will be past restaurant serving times.

The drive back to the hotel will take a few minutes and we can all enjoy a well-deserved rest.

Accommodation: Misurina Lake
 


 

Day 4 – Braies Lake and Val di Funes

Today after breakfast we will drive for half an hour to Lake Braies, a wonderful lake, one of the most iconic spots in the Dolomite mountains. Its emerald waters are usually calm in the morning, which is great for photography. We will explore the shores of the lake or you can hire a rowing boat if you fancy a more relaxing morning.

Lunch will be at a great restaurant near the lake and then we’ll travel to Val di Funes, a picturesque alpine valley with cozy houses and famous churches. From here we can take a short walk to visit several interesting locations at the foot of the Odle mountains (needle mountains) (3.025 m) before shooting the last rays of the sun on the mountain peaks.

After dinner we will have a new opportunity to photograph the stars. The moon can be bright here, hopefully bright enough to light up the foreground, creating beautiful imagery.

Accommodation: Val di Funes
 


 

Day 5 – Seceda, Odle Mountains and Alpe di Siusi

After photographing at dawn still near the Val di Funes, we will make a short trip to the pretty village of Ortisei in Val Gardena.

Here we will go up with a cable car on the Seceda, a peak of over 2500m with a splendid panorama of the surrounding mountains and valleys, including the famous Odle.

In the afternoon we will move to the nearby Alpe di Siusi, where you can enjoy some of the best views of the Dolomites.
Here we will shoot at sunset and at night and spend the night in an exclusive hotel in the Alpe.

Accommodation: Alpe di Siusi
 


 

Day 6 – Alpe di Siusi and Departure

Your last day in the beautiful Dolomite mountains, will start by shooting at dawn in the Alpe di Siusi. The fir trees and huts and hopefully a little morning mist can provide great images.

After breakfast when you luggage is packed we will drive for about 3 hours to the Marco Polo Airport in Venice and should arrive around 14:00. This is where the tour ends. We hope you have great memories and fantastic photographs.

Participation in this Photographic Tour is recommended for those who already have a minimum basic preparation, ie those who know how to shoot in Manual mode, are familiar with the use of ISO, timing and aperture, has a good knowledge of the camera menu.
Having these notions will allow you to take advantage of all the photographic opportunities that will arise and to better assimilate all the intermediate and advanced concepts that our teachers will explain to you.
A few weeks before the trip you will receive our exclusive Teaching Preparation Manual to begin learning new concepts, shooting techniques and post-production even before the trip and you will have exclusive access to our video post-production tutorials with Lightroom and Photoshop .
The very limited number of participants enables continuous interaction with the teachers, who can help and advise you at any time, but we cannot guarantee that you will have the opportunity to explain the basics of photography.

Not sure if this photo trip is right for you? Contact us and talk directly with the teachers of the Workshop.

You can participate with any brand of camera (Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus, etc.): despite being Nikon School, in almost all of our Workshops there are also participants with other camera brands, so our teachers will be perfectly able to help you with your camera settings.

To participate in the Workshop the following equipment is required:

  • SLR or mirrorless camera (any make and model)
  • Any lens
  • Tripod
  • Remote control / Remote shooting
  • 1-2 spare batteries
  • Enough memory cards to hold at least 1500 photos (or a notebook to download the photos, but it is better to have enough cards for the whole trip)

The climate in the high mountains is highly unpredictable.
In the chosen period it can be quite cool or warm, depending on the current weather.
Probably early in the morning and at night it will be cool enough and we recommend not to forget warm, windproof and rainproof clothes
Recently we have witnessed a climate change that makes it difficult to predict the weather well in advance, so we recommend checking the forecast a few days before departure.

Before departure we will send you an email with lots of detailed information on the most suitable clothing and accessories for this trip.

Since we will load all the luggage in the cars, it is important to limit the size of the luggage as much as possible, also in consideration of the short duration of the trip.
We recommend using a suitcase or duffel bag of about 100 liters of capacity (about 80 cm x 40 cm x 40 cm), in addition to the photo backpack.

Valid Passport with at least 2 blank pages. Tourist VISA not required for stays under 90 days. We advise to check your own country immigration laws to ensure you have the right to travel to Italy.

It was an exciting experience, both for the proposal and the choice of shooting points, and for the assistance enjoyed in continuity, which also made it possible to improve framing and shooting techniques.
I am very grateful to Gabriele for this priceless experience.
I am sure that I will not fail to participate in other workshops organized by him.
My rating is 5 stars.

Testimonial - Dolomites Highlights tour

Well structured course, Gabriele was very nice and helpful. He answered all our questions while giving us practical tips to solve our problems. I can say that I am very satisfied and willing to take another course with them.

Testimonial - Dolomites Highlights tour

Excellent workshop, well structured and organized, difficult to ask for better. The charm of the Dolomites is unique and the spots that have been photographed alternate perfectly in a mix of classic and non-classical shots. Tutor always available to help and give advice. See you soon Gabri!

Testimonial - Dolomites Highlights tour

Fairytale places, some already known, others unpublished but soon to be rediscovered with a different light, and not necessarily better. A micro journey through the shelters accompanied by the very uncertain weather but which was made to forgive the last night on Lagazuoi, giving us a starry scene that was almost scary. A working group, an Impeccable organization and a true Gabriele leader. It was my first workshop with Vista but it certainly won’t be the last one!

Testimonial - Dolomites Highlights tour

Simply a fantastic workshop! The places visited and photographed are the top of the Dolomites and full of ideas to take; the selected shelters are in the right places for photographic exits; the two professors, Vista guides, are prepared, competent and generous with valuable advice. In short, nothing to complain about and certainly an experience to repeat!

Testimonial - Dolomites Highlights tour

Always well organized, technically nothing to say, unexceptionable. Everything you need to learn how to photograph landscapes properly. Teachers always available and professional. You can’t ask for better. The next experience !!!!

Testimonial - Dolomites Highlights tour

I begin by saying THANK YOU to all the participants, prof understood for how they accepted me in the group since I was the only girl. Being a ws in which the spirit of adaptation is at the base I would say that they were nice and kind in everything. As far as the ws is concerned, I can only say that it was a unique experience, to be relived absolutely. Enchanting places, difficult but rewarding walks and then NATURE the real subject is always at the top. Vista guides always manage to follow all the participants during the outings, they know how to give excellent advice and, now knowing my critical points, they know how to catch me in the act to correct me. I could not ask for better as an adventure companion. Just a nice group. For the next year I will definitely rewrite …

Testimonial - Dolomites Highlights tour

The Dolomites always have a great charm, if you can take pictures of exclusive locations, well, it’s worth taking the opportunity and take the shots home! All very well managed and alternated by shooting sessions, comparison between the participants and the teachers and excellent cuisine! 😉

Testimonial - Dolomites Highlights tour

Fantastic, fun and educational experience. Vista guides have always dispensed useful advice demonstrating competence and maximum availability. Excellent organization and choice of locations. The long walks under the weight of the backpacks have always been rewarded by breathtaking views and, in moments of pause, by excellent food 🙂 !!
I’m already thinking about the next one!

Testimonial - Dolomites Highlights tour

For me this was the first workshop I attended in this genre, I had doubts and fears before leaving. The preparation of the course was very successful, via email and ample availability of photo courses, the course was explained perfectly and the material needed both in terms of photography and clothing. Subsequently, the course took place in due time and without pauses or situations of uncertainty on the part of tutors. The information provided in the field is not excessive but right to be able to take correct shots with excellent results. Overall I was very satisfied with the workshop and would certainly recommend it!

Testimonial - Dolomites Highlights tour

The course organized by Vista guides has joined two of my great passions of all time: the mountain and photography. I found the choice to alternate short and easy walks with shooting sessions to be successful. As always, the presence of the two teachers was precise, punctual and professional and contributed to my growth as an amateur photographer. The choice of places to eat and stay was functional to the program, the company and friendliness as always at the highest levels. I would say a wonderful experience that I recommend to everyone !!!

Testimonial - Dolomites Highlights tour

The course was very beautiful and instructive. The organization was perfect, the professionalism and the availability of the instructor were impeccable. The lessons in the field ranged from night photo techniques to the use of filters for landscape photos, not forgetting the composition and other tricks of the trade. Four magnificent days immersed in the wonders of the Dolomites. Highly recommended to all lovers of landscape photography and mountain excursions.

This workshop was a beautiful adventure among the unique mountains of the world !! Tre Cime, Lagazuoi, Passo Rolle … three spectacular locations !! The Three Peaks certainly need no introduction, but being able to capture the Milky Way above them during the night was certainly an exciting experience! Lagazuoi offered us a breathtaking 360 ° view both at dawn and at sunset, while in Passo Rolle we saw the Pale di San Martino lighting up at sunset and reflecting in a pond! The nice thing about traveling with Vista is that, first, it’s always like traveling with a group of friends and, secondly, you are always in the right place at the right time! Whether it’s a sunrise, a sunset or a starry sky, all the shooting points are always chosen with great care, even based on the period of the year in which the workshops take place! In this way the probability of bringing home magnificent shots is certainly very high! I also thank the guides, who with great patience and sympathy followed all the workshop participants 🙂

Very interesting course, well organized from all points of view. The continuous comparison has allowed us to get very valid cues and has allowed us to understand setting errors that maybe we risk carrying around. In addition, highly trained and friendly instructors.
Absolutely to be repeated.

The preparation from the technical point of view is unexceptionable and (not a little thing) also from the logistic point of view of the staff. During the shooting sessions I don’t think it’s easy to follow everyone, especially if the level of preparation is not homogeneous, but both Vista guides have always proved to be up to par.
Location of great impact, the Tre Cime and Lagazuoi are fantastic locations.
Having said that, however, I congratulate Vista guides and the rest of the staff and I feel compelled to advise all lovers of landscape photography, who want to improve themselves, to attend this Workshop. Bravi! I will not miss the opportunity to participate in some other trip or workshop!

Truly spectacular workshop, the chosen places and the organization are absolutely perfect. The lecturers Vista guides have always been available and have given everyone excellent advice to make the most of the situations that occurred during the course. The sympathy and professionalism impressed me, I can’t wait to go to the next one !!!

Even though it was brief, it was an experience that awakened in me a spirit of adaptation and camaraderie long since lost. Always passionate about the mountains, I was able to appreciate landscapes that make me realize how lucky we are to inhabit this land. The passion for photography has added that stimulus that has allowed me to live moments that, otherwise, I would have hardly lived. Fine or ugly, working or not, the photographs taken will still be a reflection of the emotions that caught me in those moments. Thank you.

Very positive experience!
Vista guides are really two very knowledgeable and helpful teachers. I was able to enrich my photographic knowledge, both on the more practical side of using the reflex and on the compositional level.
On the field they are always ready to give excellent suggestions and manage to drive the whole group very well even in situations that are a bit more complicated, like star-trail photography.
Equally valid are the moments of viewing / discussion of the shots, rich in hints and useful information both for the phases of shooting and for the part of post-production.
To all this is added the atmosphere of friendship and joy that they manage to establish in the group. Really highly recommended workshop!

Participating in a workshop organized by Vista guides means having to deal with two scrupulous and highly trained professionals who are available to participants at all times, giving advice on framing, shooting settings, the use of filters, tripods, backpacks and everything that revolves around the world of photography.
The techniques explained are always at the forefront, the sessions of theory and commentary on the photographs just taken allow within 2 days to greatly improve the “criticism” of their photos.
Furthermore, an atmosphere of joyful conviviality is established which favors the birth of beautiful and lasting friendships.

This workshop helped me with many technical aspects and field work. First of all I had the opportunity to see with the eyes of an expert like Gabriele how to observe and move around in the field (sun-moon-star position) and make the most of situations, or how to work with different shots and compositions if the light is not the ideal ally to bring home satisfying shots. Following small purely compositive tricks I immediately noticed an improvement in my shots.
Anyone who wants to understand the concept of light-composition in a setting rich in ideas such as the Val di Funes in the autumn, this is the workshop for you.
To enrich the experience were the night outings for the teachings about the startrails, with a simple and concise method of clear explanation, in case there were doubts or questions of any kind, I always had excellent clarifications to fill my doubts! Experience that I would do again not only for the quality of the teaching but also for the company I found and the understanding with the other course participants! Highly recommended!

I have been a photographer for many years and I am not a lover of landscape photography. I found this workshop a very pleasant surprise both technically and emotionally. I “met” the stars and the night vision of nature: beautiful! As for the daytime shots, even though the two locations are very beautiful. Excellent assistance from Gabriele and his technical presentation of the work to be done.

My personal experience is absolutely positive, even though this was my first Workshop experience, I must say that it was a positive experience in every respect: organizational, professional and human. Gabriele was always available to clarify the doubt of the moment or to give more technical indications when requested. A great climate was created with most of the participants. It was challenging but I am satisfied. P.S. The hot tea was so appreciated that it appeared out of nowhere while we were under the stars at night!

It was a revealing experience for me, as it opened my eyes to the basic concepts and shooting techniques, which although well known and treated by dozens of photographic manuals, tested live and with people who explain many other nuances, is all another thing.
Without considering the beauty of the places and the goodness of the food, I can say that I have brought myself so much at home.
Thank you

The course was very useful to me because even though it was my first experience, it gave me the opportunity to understand the basics of photography.
I did not expect a course that would allow me to be autonomous immediately, of course, but I can say that this experience gave me the ideas to start designing my own path in the world of photography.
I was able to understand what techniques to use in the field, what the equipment is and what it can give (it seems to me that on this point you have been very clear towards my kit) and how the shots for post-production are prepared.
In short, very satisfied and I hope to repeat the experience in the future.
Thank you and see you soon.
