What you'll do

Discover Lisbon with a Photographer - Morning Edition is a photography walking tour, taking us through off-the-beaten-path streets and alleys to visit the oldest and most charming Lisbon neighborhoods. While exploring alleys, streets, viewpoints, and squares, we will pass by some of the most iconic places and less explored areas. Here the city still does not feel the pressure of tourism, and Lisbon locals meet and live. Photography tuition is offered along with the experience, helping guests to achieve better results. We offer practical tips and feedback and address themes like camera settings, composition, and others depending on guests’ needs and personal preferences.
Discover Lisbon with a Photographer – Morning Edition is about starting early and take advantage of the first light bathing the city. We’ll start at the top of a hill and use an itinerary mostly going downhill, with Graça and Alfama as the main areas to explore. The finish will be near Baixa, where we can end with a well-deserved Bifana or Pastel de Nata.
For other departure times, get in touch or check my other experiences as I host afternoon and nighttime photography experiences.
Other things to note:
This experience is not a Photo Shoot. I will be glad to take a few souvenir pictures along the way, but the goal of this activity is for the guests to explore the city while learning photography.

Hi,
I'm Miguel, a Portuguese professional photographer.
I was born in this beautiful city and lived here with my longtime girlfriend, two kids, and two Portuguese Water Dogs.
I started working as a studio assistant photographer in the late 80's. Still, the street and the outdoors was always my preferred workplace, and I quit the studio to become a freelance photographer. Since then had the chance to work with multiple clients from all areas.
In 2017 I started leading photo walks around Lisbon to share my passion for photography and the city where I had the luck to be born, making the perfect canvas for excellent photo walks.

Where you'll be

Our path despite not being a very rigid and strict one will take us through areas of Mouraria, Castelo, Alfama, and Graça neighborhoods.
We will end our Photowalk in one of the most beautiful Lisbon viewpoints just on time for sunset.

It was the second time that I was out with miguel. miguel is a local photographer who knows the most beautiful places in Lisbon. It also takes into account the wishes of the participants and gives advice on good prospects. besides that, he tells many interesting stories about lisbon and the people who live here.

Miguel took us to places that normally we would not have gone and his photography tips in the 3 hours we were together definitely made my photographs better. Would highly suggest this experience even if you are not into photography. His local tips for Lisbon were excellent too.

This was a great experience for those who want to explore the city with a knowledgeable local while learning and picking up some photography tips. Would highly recommend - Miguel was great with showing us hidden gems and great photo opps.

Budding photographers will take a lot from Miguel’s trip. Miguel will personalise the tour for you as you interact and learn from him. For example, Miguel gave me some street photography tips that have already paid dividends relating to strategy and confidence. If you require more technical assistance, Miguel will happily help you with that that. Also, the tour takes in some superb locations from which to capture photos of Lisbon. So much so, I did the walk again the day after by myself (with my camera of course). Overall I came away from the experience with more confidence in my photography and came away from Lisbon with photos I probably would not have captured without the tour. Obrigado Miguel.

Miguel is a wonderfully talented photography with great tips on how to improve your shooting no matter your experience. I highly recommend the early tours to get the best light.

I enjoyed the walk with Miguel quite a lot, regret leaving it for my last day as I would like to do it again even the day after to keep up with what I learned, and it was a lot, Miguel is very experienced with photography has a very good eye and perspective so he has picked some really cool places to shoot were he would give some tips on what and where but the best was when he was showing what he would have done, which was very helpful in terms of a balanced and interesting photo, from positioning or composing the image to even smaller but important details, to even capturing some local street life. It was so amazing it is quite obvious he has a passion for this, so I highly recommend a walk or even a trip if you have too. Thank you Miguel for the amazing experience!!!!
