Brown Bear Wildlife Photography
Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) is the biggest beast in Europe and it is numerously presented in the Dinaric forests of Kočevsko and Gorski Kotar in Slovenia and Croatia. Observation of the Brown Bear population is already an old routine and during the popularization of Brown bear among the wildlife photographers and nature observers, hunters started to build special observation decks for the Brown Bear spotting.
2-day workshop will include one or two visits of one of the observation decks with the local hunter. Additionaly we can also include macro photography workshop with the renowned Macro photography master Vasja Marinč in the beautiful region of the upper Kolpa Valley.
The workshop is prepared for all photographers who like the nature and it is not specialized only for the wildlife photographers. Long lens (200mm or more) is advised for this workshop.
