Marion McCristall is an accomplished, award-winning photographer and photography instructor who divides her time between Canada and Portugal. She has lived and worked in Thailand and travelled with her camera to 34 countries. She has studied photography with well-known professional photographers in France, Italy, Morocco, Portugal, Canada, and Kenya.
Marion has a curious mind and is always willing to explore and experiment with photography techniques. She’ll help you develop a more contemplative style of photography and take your photography to the next level. During our tours, Marion will help you find images that stir your soul and create photographs in a more meaningful way.
Her love for seascapes, landscapes, and architecture shows in the images she creates. Close-ups of everyday life and street photography are areas of special interest. Marion loves colour but also enjoys the tonal contrast, graphic qualities, and artistic interpretation in monochromatic images.
As a team, Fernando and Marion offer unique photography holidays in the oldest country in Europe. We are passionate about photography and want to share some of our favourite places with you. You’ll create, learn and be inspired. We’ll go in the field and show you how to take photographs in places of breathtaking beauty, quiet back roads in rural areas, or the bustling streets of urban environments. Our tours are designed to help you capture images that best express the sights you’ll see during your time with us.
We offer scheduled one week and one day photography tours, intensive photography workshops, private custom tours, and workshops.
