WORKSHOPS ON LISBON'S WILD COAST

WORKSHOPS ON LISBON'S WILD COAST

I’ve just returned from leading a workshop in the gorgeous rolling hills of Tuscany and next month I’ll be in Iceland to lead two workshops in some of the most stunning landscapes in the world.  However, when I’m not travelling I often lead small or 1-to-1 workshops in my home city of Lisbon and on the coast here.

SHOOTING A FILM WITH FUJI X PASSION

SHOOTING A FILM WITH FUJI X PASSION

Back in October I got together with Hugo and Mauricio of Fuji X Passion to make a film about shooting landscapes on the coast of Portugal.  We wanted to make a film that captured the spirit of photography, as well as covering all the practices in the field as well as post processing.  

Despite being pretty unlucky with the weather, which is usually interesting in October, we had a lot of fun shooting at one of my favourite locations, the beach of Praia d'Ouriçal at Portugal's westernmost tip of Cabo da Roca.  It's a tricky beach to access and carrying numerous cameras, a drone, heavy video tripods and 5 or 6 bags down to the beach was a lot of fun, but it's the kind of place that when you arrive it always feels worth the effort.

 We shot the ocean here, looking at how to capture movement in the water and composition, and despite having heavy cloud and little direct light, it's still an atmospheric and fascinating location to shoot.
