One-to-One Nature Photography Tour in Porto



In this tour/workshop you will explore and photograph the Portuguese nature right in the middle of the city. With over 80 ha, the city park of Porto is the largest urban park of Portugal. It extends to the Atlantic ocean, a rare particularity in the world.
The park has 5 main types of habitats: open areas, forested areas, lagoons, shrubland and coastal areas. This variety of habitats provide conditions for a great diversity of animals (especially birds, including many migratory species), and plants.
This activity is ideal not only for beginners, who seek to improve their work, but also for more experienced photographers looking to photograph nature close to Porto. If you are a beginner I will teach you the basics of photography. If you are an experienced photographer, I will guide you in the field, improving your chances of getting great images. Because this is a private workshop, you will have my full attention at all times.
The tour/workshop will start at the entrance of the Park, Avenida do Parque, and it will end in the beach. Along the route, of about 3 km, we will visit every habitat.
Other things to note:
We will walk about 3.5 km, so you should wear comfortable shoes and clothes.

Daniel is an excellent photography teacher. Highly recommend this experience. I’m a beginner photographer and Daniel really helped me with understanding my camera and composing my shots. He picked a beautiful spot in Porto for our experience. I had a great time learning photography and getting to know Daniel.

Amazing experience! Daniel was very flexible, especially since the weather was not that good that week. We started in the early morning where we take a casual walk to Explore the Park. Daniel gave a lot of tips on compostion how to frame the landscape. If you’re a beginner Daniel can learn you in details the needed basic skills to Improve you Photography. I highly recommend this experience!

Such a fun and memorable experience! Daniel is very knowledgeable both in photography and the flora & fauna found in the enormous park. The sites he chose to visit were marvelous and stunning, filled with different species of birds, trees, and plants, and provided great opportunities for taking photos. Daniel was also very patient and helpful as he taught me different techniques that are useful in nature photography. Highly recommend!

Daniel is a talented and award-winning photographer and a conservation biologist. He inspired me to take photographs I don't normally take. Animals, such as birds, are not usually my favorite subject. But I found that it was a great experience capturing wild animals and look forward to continuing to do more. I give him a 10/10. Excellent experience for a photographer of any level. This photo session brought me to the City Park of Porto. I would never have seen it even though it is immense and beautiful and I didn't see any tourists there. Runners, bicycles, walkers all enjoy this uncrowded and amazingly preserved outdoor space. It stretches down to a beautiful Atlantic Ocean beach. Not to be missed experience for the active nature photographer.

The tour was very interesting, to see the diversity of the local bird-fauna, since my greatest interest was the birds of the place. Guided by Daniel Santos, an excellent guide from the Porto/Portugal Region, a biologist and an expert on the local fauna, he pointed out several species. Then I discovered he is an excellent photographer on his Facebook profile and on his website: www.danielsantosphoto.com. Anyway, I believe I know have another friend in the Old World. To Brazilian birders friends who want to go for a walk in Portugal I recommend it!

I had a really nice morning with Daniel. He explained and showed everything very well and he is very passionate about his work. He had lots of different ideas and other perspectives on things and I learned a lot.
