This tour/workshop will take you through one of the most beautiful mountain ranges of Portugal. Just one hour away from Porto, Serra da Freita is one of my favorite places in the country to photograph nature. Its vast grasslands, magical forests and breathtaking waterfalls make this location a truly special place for both wildlife and landscape photography. I will take you through these areas, looking for interesting animals and landscapes to photograph and at the end of the tour we are going to visit the highest waterfall of the country, with more than 60 m. Despite of this beauty, tourism is still underdeveloped, making Serra da Freita the perfect location for a day immersed in nature. This activity is ideal not only for beginners, who seek to improve their work, but also for experienced photographers looking for someone to guide them through the beautiful Portuguese nature. If you are a beginner I will teach you how to manually control the settings of your camera and provide you the basics to get great photos. I will happily take you in my car to the starting point of the workshop, however transportation it’s not included in the tour. The costs will be divided by all.
I'm a professional photographer and biologist from Porto and I've been photographing for six years now. Nature has been my main photography subject, but I also enjoy a lot street and sports photography. During 2015 and 2016 I worked for a nature tourism company, at Peneda-Gerês National Park and since then I've been developing my own activities related to photography and tourism. I often publish my work in magazines and I also won some photography contest prizes. I'm really passionate about what I do and I can grantee you I'm experienced enough to provide you an amazing experience.
