This tour/workshop will take you through the most famous streets and views of Porto. It is ideal for all who want to learn photography, while visiting the city. This activity is suited not only for beginners, who seek to learn more about photography and improve their work, but also for more experienced photographers looking for someone to guide them through the best views and streets of Porto. If you are a beginner I will teach you how to manually control your camera and provide you the necessary basics to get great compositions and develop your own style. We can also discuss some post-production techniques. In the end, I'm sure you will have your card full of images that will make you proud. If you are an experienced photographer, we can discuss more advanced techniques and share our way to approach photography. I will do my best to make sure you get the photos you have always dreamed of Porto. Along the route we are going to photograph everything we find interesting, including the famous Santa Catarina street, which is perfect for street photography, the old cathedral, the amazing view of Porto from D. Luís I bridge and also less known gorgeous places.
I'm a professional photographer and biologist from Porto and I've been photographing for six years now. Nature has been my main photography subject, but I also enjoy a lot street and sports photography. During 2015 and 2016 I worked for a nature tourism company, at Peneda-Gerês National Park and since then I've been developing my own activities related to photography and tourism. I often publish my work in magazines and I also won some photography contest prizes. I'm really passionate about what I do and I can grantee you I'm experienced enough to provide you an amazing experience.
