Private Photo Workshop in the Mountains

Porto, Portugal

Experience hosted by Daniel

5 hours, Hosted in English and Portuguese

What you'll do

This private 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. Either way, because this is a private workshop, you will have all my attention at all time.
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.

If this tour is not available in the day or hour you wanted, please contact me.

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.

What a great experience! Thank you so much Daniel! It was a truly highlight of my trip to Portugal. If you're an outdoor person, I guarantee you'd love it! Daniel is such a great guy, with a lot of knowledge about the area, flora & fauna. The place is very unique and he knows all the best spots for taking photos. I felt so comfortable asking so many questions not only about the nature but about customs, food, habits, history of Portugal. In addition you'll have two hour drive tour through small villages. Highly recommend Daniel!!!!!

This has been the highlight of my trip. Daniel took me to a collection of beautiful rolling hills that I didn't even know existed and it seems no one else did because we hardly saw anyone else besides a few locals. We spent the day at amazing locations taking photos and I learned so much about photography. If you're looking for something to do while in Porto this should be it.
