Location; Portugal Photography Workshop Tour

I’ve made several scouting trips to Portugal. I love this country with its friendly inhabitants and amazing coastal scenery. There is also so much history, architecture, and culture. Our cameras will be busy! We’ve put together a fantastic itinerary that hugs the Atlantic Coastline. We begin exploring in the Old Town district of Lisbon, then head just a short drive to Colares, where we have a very photogenic lighthouse and many pullovers along the roadside to capture stunning sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean. I’ve booked the top floor of our seashore hotel so we can shoot surfing action right from our balcony. Great seafood all along the trip! We’ll go north to visit historic Obidos Castle, the famed gondola boats in Aviero and dramatic seascapes at the cooldown of Peniche. 

Then we head south to the Algarve Region. Our first stop is the charming town of Lagos. Very cool cliffs, more lighthouses and the Portuguese tile in the Old Town district will keep us busy. Our hotel also offers a Michelin- rated restaurant! Next, we will travel further west to the southern city of Faro for an opportunity for some first-class birding at Rio Formosa National Park wetlands. We will charter a boat to photograph pink flamingos and numerous other shorebirds. 

Finally, we head back for one more night in Lisbon, where we will spend our final dinner together and top of the shooting with the famous Vasco da Gama Bridge at twilight.

EQUIPMENT SUGGESTIONS for Portugal Photography Workshop Tour: A sturdy tripod is a necessity for good landscapes. Participants should have a working knowledge of their equipment (know which button does what!) before the workshop. I suggest a SLR camera with a wide-angle lens (17-35mm range) and  a telephoto lens up in the  300-500mm range
