Wanted to tour Plitvice Lake National Park and found Igor Nobilo's company Croatia Photo Tour (contact 385-98411171). Had a wonderful day of photography, tour of the best vantage points in Plitvice Lake for taking photos, even went off road to check out a farm, and learnt about Croatian modern life while chatting with intelligent, thoughtful and highly experienced photographer Igor. And for a very fair price.
Igor emailed answers immediately, and was 10 minutes early to pick me up - responsible and responsive - thank you so much !
He tailored the tour to suite my photography experience and elevated my almost nil technical know-how. From overexposed shots, he got me taking long-exposures of the falls, creating a silky effect using my dinky four-thirds frame GX7 Panasonic Lumix. Igor is patient and thoughtful. Never once made me feel foolish even when I was on the wrong setting initially. He gently suggested how to frame some shots, select the metering and the focal point of the composition to visibly improve all my photos, only when asked. He was never pushy and respectful of the individual's personal vision. PLUS he knew the best vantage points of the lake, and those fitting the season (I visited late fall, 15 days too late for the foliage change - darn! - but the water level is now is high and the falls gorgeously robust) .
He also took me off road when I asked to visit a farm, and we ended up in the midst of a herd of lovely and curious milk cows. I'd never been checked out by a bovine and it was the most fun experience.
I also asked him for an extra long lunch break so we could try a nationally famous restaurant near the lakes (he helped me pick a really delicious dish which 6 hours later I am still drooling over).
Note - the tour began from an 8.45am pickup, included a two hour drive each way (extra hour on the way there for farm and a short photo opp at Slunj watermill village stopovers), 2 ferry rides one at the middle and another to the lower portion of the park, 2 hikes (longer at the middle lake portion and shorter at the lower because of early dusk) and a shuttle back to the carpark. Dropoff at hotel.

Hi again,

sorry for the delayed response. I still smile to think of our meetup with the milk cows. So glad I could pass on some knowledge in such a short time, hope you are practicing regularly. Would love to show you other sights in Croatia, so much more to explore!

Best, Igor

I traveled to Croatia in late August for a week long photography workshop organized by Igor Nobilo from Croatia Photo Tour in conjunction with the International Center for Photography in New York. Our teacher was photographer Sally Gall and Igor Nobilo was our second instructor. He organized the trip and clearly planned out all details and contingencies because things worked without a hitch. We stayed on the gorgeous Island of Cres and Igor lead us to the most beautiful places to shoot photos. His English is flawless and he was always ready to provide advice and assistance. I would certainly consider another tour with Croatia Photo Tours and would love to see more of that beautiful country.

Hey Joy,

forgive the late response. Great memories of the ICP tour, the group was great and I'm glad we're still in touch. I do see your photography improving and I hope the Croatia tour is partially responsible. Keep up the good work, looking forward to seeing you in Croatia anytime!

Best, Igor

Igor was quick to respond to all my questions prior to meeting up with me. He is an excellent photographer/instructor. Would highly recommend him for people of any levels. He is very patient and knowledgeble and was great at selecting locations and giving additional composition input. We worked as well with filters which was something new to me. My images turned out great. I have to say it was the highlight on our trip to Croatia.

Thank You Igor!!!

I was on a photo workshop sponsored by the International Center for Photography with renown landscape photographer, Sally Gall. Igor Nobilo from Croatia Photo Tour organized the trip and was our host for the week. The service that Igor provided was far beyond my expectations and his involvement made the trip a truly memorable experience. First, he is remarkably knowledgable about Croatia. We were on a small island off the coast (Cres) and he clearly had done his research. He knew about the local history and economy and his geographic knowledge was flawless. He went above and beyond for me including waking up at 4:30AM just because I wanted to shoot a sunrise. He knew exactly the place to go and while I can't give him credit for the spectacular dawn that day, if he could have positioned the sun and clouds the way I wanted to, he would have. He also escorted me on a sunset shoot which included researching a great spot to photograph from and hiking along some rocks to get to the perfect place.

Igor is also a talented photographer who gave me sound advise and he supplemented the excellent and inspiring instruction we received from Sally Gall. His english was arguably better than mine (he spent time in the States as a kid). He was patient with all of the participants on the photo workshop despite a varying level of photo experience and a number of different demands placed on him. Throughout the trip, it was clear that Igor's sole mission was to make sure that all of the participants had a great time. He is interesting and interested in others. We also had the chance to meet one of Igor's partners at Croatia Photo Tour -- a talented and dedicated photographer and tour guide.

I high recommend Croatia Photo Tour. If you want to experience one of the most beautiful countries on earth and come away with beautiful images and a memorable experience, you should be using this service.

Hi Jay,

thank you for the kind words and forgive the late response. I do doubt that my English is better than yours, but I don't doubt you had a great time since I can still remember your smile from the early morning photo shoot :) I can see great progress in your photography and can only hope the Croatia tour had something to do with it. Come back anytime!

Best, Igor
