May 20 to 27, 2018 FULLY BOOKED
Sintra, Portugal

The Ultimate Travel Photography Workshop in Portugal is created to help you better see and perceive the environment. Our days will be filled with expert photography instruction, hands-on in the field practice, lectures, and constructive evaluation of images. Our intensive photography workshop with Rick Hulbert, Fernando Picarra and Marion McCristall, is for those who want to deep dive into the world of photography while exploring the best sites.

Our days include photographing in the fairy-tale like area of Sintra, (UNESCO World Heritage Site,) and the vibrant, old world capital of Lisbon. We will take you off the beaten path to explore stunning vistas where you can photograph the natural landscape from the top of windswept cliffs or rural valleys. The Atlantic Coast offers opportunities to photograph seascapes with long expanses of beach as well as charming coves tucked between hills.

Lisbon is a charming city with distinct historical and avant-garde neighborhoods to photograph. We’ll drive through cobbled, narrow streets to reach hilltops with fantastic vistas of the city, Tagus River, and the 25th April Bridge. The Expo area of Lisbon boasts modern architecture with dynamic lines of glass and steel. The historical churches at Jeronimos Monastery and the Pantheon provide opportunities to photograph Gothic, Manueline, and Moorish architecture from the 16th Century.

We will photograph the enchanting 18th Century limestone palace and cathedral at Mafra. The basilica with rose coloured marble floors and columns is a stunning example of sumptuous Baroque architecture.
We will also explore the lovingly restored Saloia village called Aldea de Mata Pequena. You will be captivated by the charms of the small houses and antiques set in a rural environment overlooking lush valleys and hills.

Highlights include:

  • Photographing the natural landscape
  • Old world and modern architecture in Lisbon and Sintra
  • Glorious seascapes and sunsets
  • Palaces and cathedrals
  • Quinta da Regaleira, Sintra, UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Expert photography  insight and instruction by Rick Hulbert

We hope you’ll join us to explore, photograph, and be inspired in sunny Portugal.
