What you'll do

This private tour/workshop will take you through the most famous streets and views of Porto. It is ideal for all who want to learn photography, while visiting the city.
This activity is suited not only for beginners, who seek to learn more about photography and improve their work, but also for more experienced photographers looking for someone to guide them through the best views and streets of Porto.
If you are a beginner I will teach you how to manually control your camera and provide you the necessary basics to get great compositions and develop your own style. Because this is a private workshop, you will have my full attention at all times. In the end, I'm sure you will have your card full of images that will make you proud. If you are an experienced photographer, we can discuss more advanced techniques and share our way to approach photography. I will do my best to make sure you get the photos you have always dreamed of Porto.
Along the route we are going to photograph everything we find interesting, including the famous Santa Catarina street, which is perfect for street photography, the old cathedral, the amazing view of Porto from D. Luís I bridge and also less known superb places. This is not only the perfect workshop to learn photography, but also to visit the most beautiful places in the city.

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.

Daniel is a very relaxed person, who takes the time to help you and he gave plenty of information and tips to improve my girlfriend's skills (she's a beginner). Besides that we had a good conversation and he gave us some tips around the city. I would recommend this experience for anyone who wants to learn more about photography or wants to explore the city while doing something besides from listening.

Daniel is great at customizing the tour to the level of photography and is patient and explained some great short cuts to things I forgot or never knew about taking photos and I’m an experienced photographer. The locations were great and with a variety of history and fun. This is the ideal way of seeing Porto.

-Daniel is a nice guy, who was trying to share a few traveling tips, -But to be a good tour guide/photograph teacher, carisma and flexibility are 2 essential caracteres to have; - At the beginning of our experience, I asked if is ok to take some as 5 photos with myself in, which is a pretty normal requirement, even if the main task is shooting the city. But this definitely upset poor Daniel... - a little bit flexibility and adapt to some simple requirement is fundamental; Nice person, but there’s plenty of room to improve, adapt to the guest knowledge and reasonable requirements. I felt time to be wasted... very unfortunately A always give 5 to all experience and apartment as you can see...

I really enjoyed this tour with Daniel. He patiently taught me the basics of my camera in manual mode before we started and throughout the walk proposed different themes to put things right into practice. He also had great input on composition and stories behind buildings and neighbourhoods that helped me gain a new perspective of the city and through the camera. Highly recommend.

My son had recently giving me his camera and I needed to understand the basic of using this over my normal iPhone photos. I also need help in composition of photographs. Daniel provided expert help with both these points and allowed me to explore the camera in full manual mode using shutter speeds, aperture and iso settings. We also found numerous photo opportunities for composition in our walk around Porto. Really enjoyed the experience.
