It's all about travels and photography.

Fotokamp @ Tolmin – report

Last weekend I was running a photo camp at Labrca near Tolmin. We were photographing sporting activities such as whitewater rafting, mountain-biking, kayaking, mini rafts, and canyoning. To make a long story short;

  • 8 photographers,
  • 9 Nikon dslr cameras,
  • more than 8.000 shots (good and bad ones :) ),
  • a lot of fun and laugh,
  • very patient and cooperative models,
  • excellent food,
  • freezing water temperatures (which didn’t stop of from jumping into the river every day)
  • hot sun, heavy downpours and morning mists

And here are some shots to get the feeling how it was;

Mountainbiking; a great opportunity to try some creative lightning.

Canyoning was the biggest challenge; stark contrasts, steep and slippery terrain and water everywhere. But we’ve got some great shots :)

Rafting was something I was really looking forward to. I tried with longer exposures and with panning and zooming out.

Mini rafts are great adventure as well!

Having a great and creative models is priceless! :)

Ok guys that was great, what shall we do next?

Everybody – get ready – here they come!

Some of us tried unconventional techniques. :)

Come on guys – we are ready – go!  Its only 27m high! :)

Morning breakfast just few metres away from Soca river – how romantic!

Nidzo making worlds best cevapcici.

Eskimo turn – best seen in HD quality.

Tamara, Dusan, Sergeja, Martin, Katarina, Neja, Crt, Ivan – thank you joining me at Fotokamp! And a big thanks to Maya team, especially Borut, Klemen and Simon – you guys are great!

And for the rest of you guys who missed this opportunity – hope to see you next year!

    I live in Colombia, South America. I am an amateur photographer with a taste for Colombia´s scenery, ordinary people in their daily lives, sunsets.

    Is there a way to publish some of may pictures in your blog, so you may be able to show around places in this part of the world.?

    Thank you,
