One To One (EN) - Daniel Santos

One To One Photography Workshops 

I offer one to one or small group workshops (2-4 people) adjusted to your needs. These workshops are ideal not only for beginners, who are looking to improve their work, but also for more experienced photographers that are looking to photograph unique landscapes or certain animal species.

Wildlife and nature in general always have had a big influence in my life and I really believe that being in contact with nature is crucial to our mental and physical health. While you take the photos you always wanted to hang on your wall, I will make sure you spend a great time in communion with nature.

The main advantages of my workshops are that they can be schedule for the day you want and you will have all my attention during that day. I will give you an insight of my creative process and all the workflow behind my photos. The workshops are typically ran in the North of Portugal, in some of the most unique and beautiful locations of the country, namely Peneda-Gerês National Park, Freita Mountains, Ornithological Reserve of Mindelo and Douro Internacional Natural Park. However, other locations may be available upon request.

Apresentação do PowerPoint

There are two main themes to choose from, Wildlife Photography and Landscape Photography. The covered topics will depend on the theme chosen, skills and experience of the participant. But some examples are:

      - Composition;

      - Using light to your advantage;

      - Post-processing;

      - Manual/Autofocus methods;

      - Planning a landscape photo;

      - Techniques and cautions when approaching wildlife;


The duration of the courses varies with the preference of the participant, from one to several days. Each day is of at least 8 hours and includes the lunch and transportation during the workshop.


"I enjoyed the workshop very, very much. I learned a lot in terms of how to work with the camera manually! Daniel was very patient and knowledgable, I loved the course and I am excited about any workshop in the future."

          - A. de Pellegrino

"There are experiences that until we do them we have some doubts about if they are worth it or not. Initially the photography workshop was one of them, however thanks to Daniel all of those doubts vanished and the experience of capturing nature was great. I must thank Daniel for the attention, dedication and patience during the workshop. An experience to repeat for sure."
