Mobile Photography

Porto, Portugal

Experience hosted by João

2 hours, Hosted in English and Portuguese

What you'll do

In this workshop you only need your phone or tablet fully charged and a lot of curiosity to explore Porto!
I'll take you trough the main places in Porto downtown but I'll teach you how to photograph them better. We'll also explore narrow streets away from the crowds and find unique details and interesting stories.

Along the way, I'll teach you how to photograph better with your phone or tablet so you can improve your mobile photography skills. I'll talk about technique, composition, guiding lines and other useful tips. I will also tell you about the app's I use to edit the photos while traveling and how to plan and organize your Instagram feed and grid.

In the end of this workshop you'll have a batch of images from Porto ready to publish on your social media networks and a lot of tips to improve your photography and Instagram profile!
Believe me, to discover a city trough photography is a very different way to get to know it.
Other things to note
If you have no experience photographing with your phone or tablet don't worry, I'll adapt the workshop to your needs.
If you already use your phone to photograph your travels, I'm sure I'll have something new to teach you as well!

Hi! I'm João and I'm an experienced and traveled photographer and videographer. I have 8 years of professional experience.
I spent many years discovering Porto streets and hidden spots and I have a very special relation with the city. I frequently organize photography and video workshops in Porto so I know the best places to photograph!

I currently work in a company which owns century old Port Wine brands like Taylor’s, Fonseca, Croft and Krohn and also famous hotels like The Yeatman, Infante Sagres, Vogue Café,... This job helps me to know more about Porto's culture everyday.

I have very deep passion for travel and meeting new people. I lived for a year in Latvia where I volunteered in a Waldorf kindergarten. Last year I spent three months in Norway.

João is a gentleman, easygoing, friendly and provided us with the best pictures ever. He is definitely a pro! I strongly recommend his experience. Your daily pictures will never be the same after this experience.

Really enjoyed the experience with Joao, his friendly manner and the fantastic locations he took me to as well. Joao has given me some great ideas for approaching mobile photography, in terms of framing, light and shadow, editing and looking at things in a more creative way.

This is a nice mobile photo tour for anyone looking to see a mix of hidden streets and alleys plus main points of interest in Porto. His advice has taught me how to move and angle my phone to gain different shots and perspectives of buildings and people. It's great for those wanting to improve photo taking on their phone because as we all know, photos last a lifetime! Although we live in a digital world and can take as many shots as we want with "unlimited film," this experience will help you consider a point of view you may not have thought of through the lens of your phone.
