2017 WORKSHOPS

I’ve been leading workshops in Portugal since 2011 and have been shooting the city and the coastline around Lisbon since I first started photography over a decade ago.  Over that time I’ve gained an incredibly in-depth knowledge of the area, becoming familiar with it’s many stunning locations and how they interact with the light at different times of the year.  I’m passionate about sharing these places, as well as my knowledge and experience of photographing them with other photographers.

For group workshops I’ve got together with Photography Passion to create the absolute premium photography workshops for the Lisbon’s Wild Coast, as well as street photography in the city.  Our aim is to take you to fantastic locations and give you every opportunity to get great images while improving your technique over the course of your time with us through expert tuition in the field, as well as in post processing sessions for the landscape workshops.  

We aim to make your experience here in Portugal a memorable one and a trip from which, as well as getting some great images from beautiful place, you’ll get a real taste of the country enjoying great food, great accommodation and great company in a very special place.

LISBON'S WILD COAST   

LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP  

10.jpg

West of Lisbon lies some of the most dramatic coastline in Europe.  At Cabo da Roca, mainland Europe’s most westerly point, towering rock stacks stand just offshore of isolated stony beaches and Atlantic waves pound the cliffs, this really is a landscape photographers paradise.  Westerly facing, it’s perfect for sunset with all the elements needed to create some stunning images of the ocean, and if we get clear skies at night we may even get the chance to photograph the stars.   

Within a few kilometers of our accommodation the coast here has a number of breath-taking beaches, each with a different character and feeling and with different levels of difficulty in terms of access.  This range of locations gives us the opportunity cater to the preferences and comfort of our participants, and also means we can adapt our schedule to ensure we go where the conditions look most promising.

LISBON STREET PHOTOGRAPHY

SUMMER & AUTUMN STREET PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS IN LISBON

Lisbon really is a unique and beautiful city.  Its old neighbourhoods are spread across several hills where winding streets and atmospheric dark alleyways twist and turn before opening out into gardens with panoramic views across the city and it’s glittering river.  Bordered on two sides by the Tejo, the river is a constant presence in the city from the waterside parks to the two elegant bridges that arc across its width while small ferries traverse it’s waters.

For the photographer there’s lots to see here. Many of the old quarters of the city centre like Alfama and Bairro Alto are infused with incredible character visible in everything from the crumbling old buildings to the small barbershops or shoe-shiners, and the clanking metal trams that rumble through the streets and grind up the hills.  And then there’s the light.  All year round Lisbon is bathed in wonderful golden light, filling the streets with contrasts of warmth and shadow, picking out the textures of the walls and saturating the buildings with beautiful vibrant colours
