Join us in the wild west of Portugal to capture one of the most photogenic coastlines in Europe. We will start our tour in Lisbon, a fascinating destination for photographers because of its stunning architecture, vibrant street life, and picturesque city and landscapes. During our time in Lisbon we will photograph the famous Vasco da Gama bridge at sunrise, explore Sintra (a charming Portuguese town situated within the picturesque hills of the Serra de Sintra), take pictures of the Tower of Saint Vincent (a 16th century fortification that served as an embarkation point for Portuguese explorers), and guide you to an array of well-known and “secret” photography spots throughout this mesmerizing city. 

From Lisbon we will continue our journey to the Algarve, a coastline with some of the most incredible rugged cliff formations, hidden coves, and blue water sceneries in all of the Iberian Peninsula. Imagine a place where golden cliffs meet azure waters, where cozy beaches give way to charming old towns, and every turn reveals a new, breathtaking vista – much of the Algarve remains relatively undiscovered and unspoiled. We will spend our nights in Lagos, a charming and centrally located town with narrow cobblestone streets and quaint old churches. 

During this 7-day fabulous 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. Our photography guide Paulo is from Portugal, speaks the language, and is looking forward to showing you the beauty of his homeland. During our workshop will provide photographic guidance, demonstrate the use of filters, talk about composition, shutter speeds, apertures,  histograms and more. All levels of photographers are welcome, whether you are a hobby enthusiast, a cell-phone 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.

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.
