About this activity

Discover the alleys and old buildings of one of the oldest district of Lisbon.
The Alfama district is a real oasis for photographers and tourists; visiting it means wandering among the smells, sounds and medieval architecture of old Lisbon. Its narrow and winding streets make it the most characteristic place in the Portuguese capital, where it is a delight to breathe the soul of Lisbon.
I will guide you through this exploration and give you all the necessary advice to better manage light and create harmonious compositions. Thanks to my help, you will be able to create images worthy of the most beautiful postcards. Being in the company of a local will also be an asset to get in touch with the population and make beautiful portraits.

About your Mentor
I've been enjoying Photography since my teenage years, but decided to do it exclusively in 2013.
I'm mostly self-taught but have had the chance to learn from professionals whose dedication and general aproach showed me Photography in a completely different light. Literally!

I'm born and raised in Lisboa and love to help enjoy this city.
I like typical portuguese food and pizza, reading comics and Dostoyevski, listening to Iron Maiden and Classical music.

And I would love to help you get great photos of Lisboa!
