This 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 favourite places in the country to photograph nature. Its vast grasslands, magical forests and breath-taking waterfalls make this location a truly special place for both wildlife and landscape photography. I’m an experienced nature photographer, biologist and tour guide and I believe I’m the right person to teach you photography, to take you to the best locations for landscape photography and to increase the probability of seeing wildlife. One of the biggest advantages of Freita mountains is that tourism is still underdeveloped, making it 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.


The tour/workshop will start with a brief talk in which I will explain you the basics of using your camera in manual mode and all the theory behind it, tips on composition and other important information that will help you improve your photography. The first place we are going to visit is the plateau, a beautiful and biodiverse location. The open areas with isolated trees make it ideal for landscape photography, but there is always the possibility of seeing amazing wildlife, as the rare and beautiful rock thrush and other incredible birds, wild rabbits, foxes and others.
Then we are going to walk in a native forest looking for woodland compositions. Furthermore, there is a small river that meanders through the forest, where we can look for amphibians, as the Iberian frog, and reptiles, as the water lizard.
The last location is one of the most beautiful and the biggest waterfall of Portugal (+60 meters high), known as Frecha da Mizarela. This incredible waterfall will look great in your images.
During all the time we will spend together I will give you great tips, answer all your questions and critique your photos so you can improve your photography and start taking better images.
