Hi!
My name is Genaro Bardy. I work as a freelance photographer mainly doing portraits, shooting events, as well as architecture photography. I have been blessed to also work for travel agencies and travel magazines, producing photography and writing stories. Traveling is a second nature, and now I'd like you to enjoy my hometown of Salvador in a new original way !

I have been teaching photography and leading workshops for 5 years, in Europe, Asia and New York. I love to share insights and see people get better at this wonderful art of photography. Also I fell in love with Bahia and I can't wait to take your eyes and camera to the streets of my beloved city.

Join me as we explore all of the hidden treasures Salvador has to offer... (Eu falo Portugues também)

This was a great tour, it gave me confidence to get my camera out with a guide where I had been told keep everything away. He gave me a new look on my photography and what can make an image “extra” Recommended!

I had an amazing time on this experience! Not only did I become better acquainted with my camera, but I also learned more about composition and he encouraged to approach random strangers to use as subjects, which took me out of my comfort but was super rewarding.

I had a wonderful time with Genaro. We studied the basics of camera and composition and then worked it out live. Street and people photography in Pelourinho is fun and easy going. Really enjoyed it!

I learned a lot in the time we were together. Although I have been dabbling in photography for some time, I came away excited for the new insights and perspectives I learned. I know my photography has already improved.
