Montenegro Photo Adventure Vacations – Inspire, Create and Learn.

Montenegro, called the pearl of the Mediterranean, is unique in many ways. Nowhere else will you find such natural wealth, beauty, mild beaches. clear lakes, fast rivers and gorgeous mountains in such a compact area as in Montenegro. It is an excellent choice for travel because of its rich history, culture, tradition, good weather conditions, clean air, as well as its proximity to the Adriatic Sea. Despite its small size, it offers great diversity and abundant natural beauty. Similar to Croatia, there is a dream-like grandeur in every view of Montenegro. You'll surely capture some of your most beautiful photos here. Montenegro is certainly one of the most interesting places in the world. Combine with our Dubrovnik Croatia Photo Adventure for an amazing two weeks on the Adriatic. 

This adventure is designed not only to guide you to the most photogenic locations carefully planned for the best light, but to aid you in mentally visualizing a scene before capturing the decisive moment. Our aim is to raise your awareness and spark your creativity so that you not only go home with images to be proud of, but use your new found skills to improve and expand your photographic technique in general. Apart from the technical aspect of learning your camera settings and capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your own creativity.

In addition, you will become knowledgeable on how to survey the landscape, utilize and approach your environment, photograph people indigenous to the region and the cultural considerations and challenges of photographing in a foreign country. Our week together will include individual and group discussions, inspiring ideas and great fun. We cannot think of a better location to express your creativity than Montenegro.

MONTENEGRO 6 DAYS


Sunday (1)  Budva - Old Town - Citadel

We meet on Sunday at our Hotel in Budva where we will discuss PWA’s “10 Guiding Principles of Photography” as well as our “THE ART OF SEEING” photographic technique. During a group lunch, we will have informal discussions on what our guests are trying to achieve in their photography, subject matters, styles and techniques. Budva is a coastal town in Montenegro and it is well known for its sandy beaches and nightlife, but there are just as many historical and cultural sights to see and photograph. Budva is 2,500 years old, which makes it one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic coast. After lunch we will visit Budva's Old Town and walk the length of the old town walls. Then we will go to Citadel which is well worth visiting for amazing views of Budva Old Town, the harbor and coast. In the evening we will enjoy our “Welcome Dinner” at one of Budva’s amazing restaurants. (D)

Monday (2)  Kotor Bay - Kotor - Gospa od Skrpjela

On day two we will travel outside the city where we will depart by boat for a panoramic ride through Kotor Bay where we will enjoy the magnificent view of the fjord-like mountains. Afterwards, we will stop in Kotor, a medieval village surrounded by impressive walls. Kotor is a UNESCO World Heritage site, know for its numerous cultural and historic monuments. Then on to visit the island of “Gospa od Skrpjela“ known for its 68 frescoes. (B)

Tuesday (3)  Tara Canyon - Podgorica - Moraca Canyon

Early on Tuesday morning we head to Tara Canyon, Europe's deepest canyon, and the second deepest in the world, after America’s Grand Canyon. On our way we will pass through Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro, which lies alongside the Moraca Canyon. We will stop by the 13th century Monastery of Moraca, and continue up to the Djurdjevica Tara bridge, where we’ll shoot some amazing visa photographs. (B)

Wednesday (4)  Sveti Stefan - Bar

After an early breakfast we head to Bar, but not before we stop to photography and enjoy the beauty of Sveti Stefan,.Once a fortified village dating back to the 15th century, the island of Sveti Stefan is a uniquely atmospheric setting of cobbled lanes, quaint courtyards and remarkable sea views. Stefan is not to be missed. When we arrive in Bar we will visit the ruins of Bar Old Town which constitutes one of the world's largest fortified archeological sites. Today the Old Town is abandoned, but there are fantastic views out over the mountains and towards Bar itself, where we will photograph on our way to Bar. With an average of 270 sunny days per year, Bar is one of the Mediterranean's sunniest towns. (B)

Thursday (5)  Skadar Lake National Park - Budva

On Thursday we leave for Skadar Lake, the largest lake in the Balkans. This region gives you a good taste of what Montenegro is all about. You will get a chance to see locals living off their land, vineyards, undeveloped nature, little stone villages and monasteries in stunning locations. You will experience peace amongst the mountains, greenery and water. We will hire a boat and driver who will take us round the lake, and we will stop off at the most scenic and photographic locations. Upon returning to Budva, we will prepare for our wonderful Montenegrian “Farewell Dinner”, where we will have great fun and laughter as we discuss all the highlights of the trip. (B) (D)

Friday (6)  Budva 

On day six, we set out early for some street photography and then our final group discussion, review our past weeks photos, trade contact information and bid you farewell. We urge you to extend your stay in Budva or elsewhere in Croatia or Montenegro and make good use of everything you will learn on our photo adventure. (B)

May all who come as guests... leave as friends®
