What you'll do
No experience is necessary - just a camera. Smartphones take brilliant photos. Or bring your SLR. I’ll teach you all the tricks to take great pictures. We'll meet for a drink to discuss what you hope to get from our workshop. You could show me some of the kinds of photos you'd like to take. Or go over the features of your phone or camera that will help you take better shots. We'll go for a walk and take photos. As we go I'll keep an eye on you and offer some tips and make myself available for answering your questions.
Years ago I came back from a trip with 10 rolls of film. I processed them and saw that the photos were good. So I bought a Nikon and I put hundreds of rolls of film through it. Around 2010, film didn't make sense anymore, so I bought myself a nice digital camera but hardly picked it up. The magic went missing. Recently, I found the magic of photo making again, and I'm happy to share it with you. I've been published in National Geographic Traveller and other magazines. My tours are more than photography, as we walk through the city streets I will tell you about its history and culture.

Where you'll be
We'll be close to the center of Porto, but away from the main tourist sites. Where the light is nicest, where there's things to photograph, near public transport. Please be prepared to walk. We will walk through Cedofeito, a bohemian neighborhood with street art and boutiques. From there we'll go to a park nearby, the Jardins do Palacio Cristal, known for it's peacocks and views. Then, back to the cafe where we started to review our work.
