One-to-One Nature Photography workshop in the mountains



This 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 favorite places in the country to photograph nature. Its vast grasslands, magical forests and breathtaking waterfalls make this location a truly special place for both wildlife and landscape photography. I will take you through these areas, looking for interesting animals and landscapes to photograph and at the end of the workshop we are going to visit the highest waterfall in the country, with more than 60 m. Despite of this beauty, tourism is still underdeveloped, making Serra da Freita the perfect location for a day immersed photographing nature.
This activity is ideal not only for beginners, who seek to improve their work, but also for experienced photographers looking to learn more advanced techniques.
If you are a beginner I will teach you how to manually control the settings of your camera and provide you the basics to get great photos.
If you are an experienced photographer, we can discuss more advanced techniques and share our way to approach photography.

What a great experience! Thank you so much Daniel! It was a truly highlight of my trip to Portugal. If you’re an outdoor person, I guarantee you’d love it! Daniel is such a great guy, with a lot of knowledge about the area, flora & fauna. The place is very unique and he knows all the best spots for taking photos. I felt so comfortable asking so many questions not only about the nature but about customs, food, habits, history of Portugal. In addition you’ll have two hour drive tour through small villages. Highly recommend Daniel!!!!!

This has been the highlight of my trip. Daniel took me to a collection of beautiful rolling hills that I didn’t even know existed and it seems no one else did because we hardly saw anyone else besides a few locals. We spent the day at amazing locations taking photos and I learned so much about photography. If you’re looking for something to do while in Porto this should be it.
