Our landscape photography tour will take you to the popular rolling fields of South Moravia in the Czech Republic. This wonderful region offers plenty of opportunities to shoot the local agricultural landscapes full of lines, crop patterns, and rich shapes and this is what our photo tour will mostly be about.

Rolling hills of South Moravia

Because the landscape looks very much like in Tuscany in Italy or Palouse in Washington State in the US, it attracts more and more international photographers every year. This strong resemblance has resulted in many visitors referring to this region as Moravian Tuscany. However, we like the name South Moravia, so we will stick with it.

In spring, the region turns into a palette of vibrant colors, green is the greenest and blooming canola adds one more color to the scenery.

Photographers of all levels are welcome to join us and embark on an unforgettable journey to the South Moravian countryside.

Your photography tour leader

You will have a Czech professional travel photographer Jan Miřacký (read more about Jan) with you who knows all the best locations and perfect timing to utilize them. This stems from his experience in leading tours in South Moravia for a couple of years now.

Your private photo guide Jan will help you to get the most out of your trip and will also be there for you to overcome the language barrier as knowledge of English is very limited in this area.

Photography focus

You will practice capturing abstract landscape photos and looking for various lines in nature. We will focus mainly on creating compelling compositions and we will take advantage of good light during sunrise and sunset. Jan will, of course, help you with camera settings if necessary to assure you will get some stunning images on the trip.

Optionally, we can also visit some popular landmarks in the area such as Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape listed in UNESCO and a few other places.

I had a solo photograph trip from 30 April to 1 May 2018 for 2 nights led by Jan Miracky. He knows this region very well and has shown me this beautiful region and amazing landscape. He booked me a nice pension for a very good price. For those who love wine tasting. this is a place to be as well. I really recommend you guys to use his service when visiting this region. One day I hope to be back here again.

Accommodation in South Moravia

We recommend that you stay with Jan at a small, picturesque village named Vrbice. This little village holds the title for The Village of the Year 2014 of South Moravian Region.

Our favorite accommodation is at a very nice, clean and cozy family-run guesthouse named U Tří růží. It is located only a 20-minute drive from most of the shooting locations. The rooms are equipped with a private bathroom and breakfast is included.

Jan can help you to book the accommodation if necessary.

Frequently asked questions

I recommend coming in the spring. April and May are the best months to go. Autumn (October) can be also interesting.

The most important piece of gear you must bring is a telephoto lens. A full-frame camera requires at least 70-200 mm, but you will utilize even 100-400 mm.

A good, sturdy tripod to accompany your telephoto lens will also be necessary.
