SMALL COLD VALLEY  is one of my favorite locations in Slovakia. For an incredible number of interesting compositions, it is a real playground for a landscape painter.  The workshop is intended for beginners as well as advanced landscape photographers who want to move their work a little further and learn to take pictures not only of what we see, but especially what we feel at the moment, which is the meaning of fine art landscape photography. It is also suitable for all photographers who want to spend pleasant moments in a relaxed atmosphere with people with the same interests in the beautiful Tatra countryside.

INDICATIVE PLAN

WORKSHOP:

DAY 1

We will start the first day of our workshop with a meeting in the parking lot in Starý Smokovec, which is the starting point for the route to Téry's cottage, which will be our "basecamp" during the workshop. It is an undemanding hike that does not require any above-average condition. During the route, in case of favorable photo-conditions, we will stop at several photo-spots, which will also provide enough time for rest. Upon arrival at the cottage, we will strengthen ourselves with local facts and, depending on the weather, we will either take pictures of the sunset or we will briefly address the theory.

DAY 2

We'll be working on early in the morning  photography in a beautiful location. All photo-spots (including my secret ones) are located close to the cottage where we will be accommodated. We will practically analyze several aspects of landscape photography directly in the field (technical, visual and artistic side). During the day we will also teach post-process lessons.

DAY 3

We will start the third day by photographing the sunrise in other interesting places near the cottage. During the period for which the workshop is planned, there are many mountain flowers at the cottage, which will give us the opportunity to take pictures of a large number of different interesting compositions. After the morning photo shoot and breakfast, we will evaluate the workshop, everyone will receive individual advice to improve their own work. Before lunch we will go back to the parking lot, which ends the workshop.

The plan is only indicative. Individual locations may change due to the weather forecast. But you don't have to be afraid of that. The workshop will be led by a lecturer who  knows the conditions in the mountains well.

​WHAT DO YOU LEARN IN A WORKSHOP?

THE WORKSHOP WILL ACCOMPANY YOU:

Kirk.self.jpg

My name is Filip Hrebenda.  I am a photographer focused on artistic photography of the landscape, especially mountain areas.  My  the creation is characterized by the sensitive use of the colorful colors found in nature. With these colors, interesting light,  and working with creative composition  I try my best  transfer the atmosphere of the photographed locations to the viewer.  This is exactly the skill I want for every workshop, course or participant  shipping. I got to take photos years ago due to my relationship with the mountains and nature, which I had since I was little. Because  I live in an area that is located  close to

Filip Hrebenda

Slovak  national  parks and  beautiful mountains,  I spent a lot of time in them. Therefore, I decided that these places are worth capturing in their full beauty. After a few years, based on several successes, it has become a hobby, a profession I currently live.  I am one of the members of the prestigious "Association of Professional Photographers of Slovakia" (APFSR). I also represent several brands in the field of photography (ZEROFilters, CEWE, FocusNordic, Sirui, Vallerret, Lexar and  Hähnel).  I've been working for years  mainly organizing photo-courses and expeditions, which take place both in Slovakia and in several parts of the world. What fascinates me most about this job is that I find myself in really beautiful places surrounded by wildlife.  In addition,  to transmit  their  experiences  people  I directly enjoy "in the field".
