We’ve just returned from our photography holiday where we went to the beautiful Montenegro! While we love teaching at our photography studio in Waterloo, it was nice to take what we do on our courses and workshops to some of the best places in Montenegro.

Students in action

Our photography holidays teach students to put their digital photography skills into practice at unique and stunning places. We chose the beautiful old town of Kotor as our base for the trip. From there, it was easy to access stunning locations for landscape photography. After a day taking some amazing pictures, we would then get great images of the town in the evening too. Here’s some of our favourite spots from the trip.

Top photography locations

Montenegro is a photographer’s dream, with so many stunning landscapes, characteristic streets, and exciting weather to capture. Here are some of our best spots which we make sure to take our photography students to.

Kotor Bay

Firstly, the high mountains over Kotor Bay make for a great photography location. The slopes drop dramatically down to pale blue waters, giving our students the chance to get a striking photo.

Old town streets

Kotor is a charming historic town, with cobbled streets and characteristic stone architecture. It makes for great portrait pictures like these.

For the animal lovers, there are plenty of opportunities to get cat pictures too! These kitties are more than happy to be photographed.

Down from the mountains and closer to the shore, we capture stunning still waters and vivid skies with the students.
