WORKSHOPS

 

Landscape photography workshops are a fantastic way to experience some of the world’s most beautiful places whilst improving your technique, and I lead carefully designed tours to some truly breath-taking places in Iceland, Italy and Norway through Light Explorers, a dedicated workshop company I run with other professional landscape photographers.

Using our in-depth knowledge of these iconic locations our aim is to give you every opportunity to get great photographs while improving your technique through expert tuition in the field, as well as in post processing sessions which help you get the most out of your images.

We hope to inspire you and share our enthusiasm for these unique places, and through our technical and creative oversight ensure you take home both wonderful photographs and fantastic memories from your time with us.

 

I also offer one day 1 - 1 street photography workshops in my home city of Lisbon throughout the year.   We'll look at the different approaches to street photography in some of the most vibrant, atmospheric and beautiful neighbourhoods of the city which I've been shooting  for over 10 years.

TESTIMONIALS

 

Thank you for a great workshop experience & for your great company over the 4 days.  I really enjoyed the group, the shooting, the accommodation, the food, the differing locations & most of all, the opportunity to shoot consistently over an extended period.  The eye has a chance to hone in on good light & composing moves closer to becoming second nature (or perhaps, third or fourth nature but definitely out of double figures!)

The Light Explorer’s Landscape Photography Workshop led by Andy in Tuscany was everything I hoped it would be and more!  The education and advice was constructive and appropriately challenging and stretched me to focus on the details, implement new techniques and develop my style and goals for my photography.

The team of instructors come alongside you from the start and are highly engaging, offering assistance, education and their professional perspectives to help you come away with a successful photographic experience.  Each instructor offers his unique insight, which I found encouraging because there are numerous ways to achieve excellent results.  Andy and the team were very attentive to the participants throughout the entire workshop.  I felt like we were all the best of friends sharing an awesome photographic adventure!  Beautiful and inspiring landscapes.  Insightful conversations, instruction, and critiques with professionals who openly share their knowledge - just what a great photo workshop should be!

Andy and the team took great care of their participants, and this was the best photographic workshop I have experienced.  I look forward to future workshops with them.

Many Thanks Andy and the team for these terrific 4 days we've spent in the workshop with lots of fun, companionship, and of course, your expertise, committment and passion ! Could not be happier with the experience ! Hope this gets to be the first of many to come.

I had a day and a half workshop one-on-one with Andy in Lisbon and the whole experience fully lived up to my high expectations. Lisbon and it’s surrounding coastline are brilliant locations for the photographer and Andy’s love and enthusiasm for his home city were quite infectious. Being a new Fuji shooter, Andy‘s advice and guidance were particularly relevant, in addition to which I picked up a few post-processing tips. Photography aside, Andy is great company: all in all, a terrific weekend.

Discovering Tuscany with Andy and his colleagues was a very enjoyable experience for me. Tuscany obviously is an iconic destination for landscape photography, but what made this trip quite special was the mood of the accompanying pros. Not only did we cover great spots, but we did it in a proactive way, being stimulated to discover the very best shooting spots, the best framing and taking opportunity of the best light. Every part of the shooting experience was covered by the three pros with their own angle, from the very technical aspects to the spiritual mood you could adopt in order to boost your artistic creativity. A very complete and stimulating experience I would warmly recommend.

Andy, Konstantinos and Kostas are a great team who prepared and run the workshop that was both wonderful in terms of photography but also entertaining and enjoyable. The mixture of mentality and background within the leading group as well as the participants made the whole workshop a very lively undertaking. Tuscany is a great place to go to, even when the weather is not so perfect, but the way this workshop is run is unique. Andy, Konstantinos and Kostas provided every support necessary while making photographs in great locations and also on how to process these images afterwards. My highlight was that feedback and critique was provided in a very helpful way.

The workshop truly provides great value for money.

I spent a fantastic week in Tuscany with Andy, Kostas and Kostantino. It was an incredibly valuable experience toward improving my landscape photography.

They provided individualized attention in a relaxed environment that allowed one the freedom to experiment. The non-photography part of the workshop (food, lodging,  and travel to locations) was completely hassle-free. Because of my positive experience, I signed up for their workshop in the Dolomites.

I have had the good fortune of working with Andy for a number of years.  He has taken me to various locations in Portugal, all of which were hand picked places of beauty and interest for a keen eyed landscape photographer. On each occasion, his workshops have been rich and varied experiences, both technically and artistically.  

Andy has such empathy towards his students. He not only explains how to create a worthwhile image, but also demonstrates why his techniques work; guiding you through the depth and subtleties of photography. I have always found that the knowledge gained from working with Andy rubs off in such a way that it stays with you permanently.
