Porto & Aveiro Phototour 2022


Porto is a well known city in the north of Portugal, but the beautiful Aveiro lagoon is perhaps not so well known. Join me, Paulo Silva for some great photographic opportunities in both locations. I offer a 5 day landscape photo tour in this Portuguese area which is close to my home and my heart. In Porto we will photograph famous views of the high lying city, the steel bridge, and the barges carrying barrels of port below on the Douro River. In the Aveiro Lagoon we will seek out the best tides, light and reflections to photograph the fishing boats in their peaceful surroundings. In the pretty town of Aveiro we will try some blue hour photograph

The essential kit for the entire Tour:
Mirrorless or DSLR camera, tripod, wellington boots and waterproof coat.
The 16-35mm lens is all you need, or 24-70mm.

 Filter kit:

Gradients 2/3 stops hard and soft, a reverse grad 3 stops and ND Full 6/10 stops and polarizer.
