I was with Luka and some like minded individuals on the winter 2022 workshop.

Despite C19 putting a spanner in the works for the 2021 workshop that I was meant to be on, the communication from Luka and his team was excellent and it was an easy decision to wait for the situation to settle and prepare myself for a great tour.

Mainly focussed around the Julian Alp region, the workshop showed us some glittering sights of Slovenia, and as a host Luka was magnificent. The locations were exceptional, and with the constant changes of weather conditions Luka’s knowledge of the area and subject prevailed by having a flexible itinerary in order to capture the best places for the conditions.

Whether it be trekking to frozen lakes, riding the dawn gondola with the ski resort’s supplies to catch the best sunrise, or going to small restaurants for the best Carniolian sausage Luka is your man!

Would hesitate to recommend a workshop regardless of skill level or gear, as there wasn’t a hint of ego from anyone on the workshop.

My husband and I had an excellent trip June 2019, with Andrej as our private guide in Slovenia & the Dolomite region of Italy.
Andrej was very professional – he assessed our needs and preferences, and put together our custom itinerary.
This trip exceeded our expectations!
Andrej was fun to travel with, gave us expert photo advice, and he made sure that we had some time on our own for exploring and dining.

We would definitely consider another trip with Andrej, and we can highly recommend Esenko Workshops!

We had a great time with Luka during the 2020's winter. The accommodation provided was simple but very comfortable, everybody was welcoming. We also enjoyed the food - we would generally have breakfast after the morning session at the hotel and then dinner at a different restaurant every night.
Luka was very knowable of the landscape and would pick a location based on the weather conditions. His experience was essential to maximize our shooting opportunities.
Besides the shooting sessions, Luka and his team were always fun to talk to and would tell us a lot about Slovenian culture and history.
I was particularly lucky to be joined by an amazing group, which made the trip altogether even more enjoyable.
I would highly recommend Luka and his team and would definitely come back to Slovenia or join a tour somewhere else with them.

In May 2014 I participated in a photography Bootcamp run by two excellent photographers, Luka Esenko and his co leader Jeremy Woodhouse. We were a small group and spent a wonderful week learning how to improve our photography in beautiful locations in Slovenia. Great group dynamics and excellent team leaders. I enjoyed myself so much that I went back in January for the winter tour organized by Esenko Workshops with Luka and Andrej. A splendid week with good company and much laughter, good Slovenian wine and fabulous locations for each shoot. I will return again with the same group in October to see Lake Bled in its autumn colours. I highly recommend Esenko Workshops whether you are new to photography or a professional

After receiving a recommendation from a friend, I had the good fortune of joining one of the Esenko Workshops. Luka and his team know every nook and cranny of Slovenia and the surrounding areas. Because I did a Winter Workshop, every day was a bit of a gamble with the weather. However, I learned very quickly that Luka was able to adapt and adjust to the ever changing weather conditions to ensure that we would have the best possible chance at taking amazing photos. I am not a professional photographer. Luka was very patient and kind and willing to share all of his tips and tricks along the way to ensure I had a positive learning experience. The Esenko team truly cares that you have a great experience with A LOT of laughs along the way. My favorite part was the feeling of being like "family" by the end of the trip. I've made some lifelong friends because of this.

I can't wait to take another trip with them. The planning is already in progress!

I came across Esenko Workshops while researching photographic tours around Lake Bled as that was on my bucket list. My husband and I booked the winter workshop and there were six in our group all together. Luka and his associate Andrej delivered a superb experience full of great locations ,information and history about Slovenia. Our group really gelled and we all had so much fun. Great food in various places and our lodgings were warm and comfortable. We enjoyed our experience so much we have all rebooked an autumn tour in 2020 .Can’t wait!

Slovenia is a beautiful country, I was glad that I joined the Esenko Workshops 8 days Autumn Colours Slovenia photo tour in Nov 2019.

The itinerary was great, the photo guide was professional, the accommodations were terrific, the transportation was comfortable and the food was delicious as well. I did have a great time and amazing experiences. Everything was so wonderful and beautiful.

I would not hesitate to recommend Esenko Workshops for anyone interested in travel and enhance photography skill.

I really look forward to join some more photo tours with Esenko Workshop very soon in the future.

We loved our photo tour with Esenko Workshops in Winter 2019. Not only does Slovenia offer many many magical scenes, the food and accommodation were fantastic too. We felt at home with Luka our tour leader. We are so happy that we chose Esenko tours, there were a pleasure to deal with from our initial enquiry to our tour. We thoroughly recommend Luka and his team for anyone wanting to capture the magic of Slovenia.

I had wanted to go to the Plitvice lakes in Croatia for a while and it was all i hoped it would be thanks to Lukas' amazing guiding. We took in lots of other sites in Croatia too and Luka got us to some great locations. But the lakes were an massive highlight and his knowledge of where to be at the right time was awesome and invaluable. Food, accommodation and transportation was spot on. Luka was great company, as were the others on the tour - small numbers which really helps.

Would i book another tour ? absolutely and i have - i'm off to Slovenia with Luka and his company next Winter.

I promise, you wont be disappointed going on a tour Esenko Workshops

I have traveled extensively with Esenko Workshops in Croatia, Slovenia (twice), Italy (Dolomites), and Austria. Their guides are excellent photographers and guides, and they know the areas really well. And they are great people and fun to travel with. I hope to do many more photo tours with Esenko Workshops.
