Join us to capture one of the most photogenic areas in Europe – Porto & Aveiro. Aveiro is a charming town, set along the coastal lagoon Ria de Aveiro, also known as the Venice of Portugal. Along the scenic waterway are many colorful canal boats, traditionally used to harvest seaweed. The city itself provides many great photographic opportunities with its art nouveau buildings, the exquisite cathedral and its distinctive bell tower. Aveiro is the perfect place to get some unique images to add to your portfolio.

Porto, the second largest city in Portugal, lies on the banks of the Douro River and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The most characteristic views of the city, including the Ribeira district with its ancient houses, and the famous Dom Luis steel bridge can be seen from the low lying shores of the Douro. Here you can find traditional barges carrying barrels to the local port. This active harbor creates many photographic possibilities which we will capture at sunrise and sunset. 

During this photographic journey, we will seek out interesting nooks and crannies as well as the better-known and more iconic sites. Our aim is to give you ample opportunity to capture the history and beauty of this amazing country. We will provide photographic guidance, work with filters, talk about composition, shutter speeds, apertures, and understanding histograms. All levels of photography are catered for; whether you are a hobby enthusiast, an iPhone shooter, or a seasoned professional looking for new photographic opportunities.

Relatively easy but good footwear needed. Most locations and viewpoints are close to where we will be parked. There may be some walking on uneven terrain which could be wet and muddy, and some locations are hilly. Good sturdy, water resistant boots are advised.

Best place to fly to is Lisbon Airport. If coming from the UK or within Europe, you can find flights at Easyjet or Wizz Air or Ryanair.

You can get information and public transport options from Lisbon Airport here:

The weather can be quite cold this time of year, and the mornings and evenings colder, so warm clothes. Ideally layers that you can remove or put on as we’ll be shooting before sunrise and after sunset, in the dark, when it will be colder. Bring wet weather gear and a raincover for your camera equipment.
