Make the best of the photographic technique during an exploration of Lisbon after sundown.

The night photography, with its specific low light, it is a real technical challenge which opens a possibility to fields that could not be reached during the day (motion effect with low light, moving lights, creative special use of the flash, ...).

You can learn how to use your camera, set the proper exposure, and transform the "enemy" light to an "ally". The lights, the contrasts, and the moving elements allow a completely different approach of the opportunities that photography offer.

The Weekend-Atelier starts in the afternoon when you will learn the basics of photographic technique and the very-important framing and composition, which will take you to an afternoon of practical field-exercises. When the night starts to approach, the scope of the practical exercise changes setting and light, and a moment of night photography and creative techniques will be shown to you.

Lisbon

An amazing playground for Photography


Lisbon

Lisbon has been, ever since, a city of exploration and exchange. In its early ages, the city has seen the Carthaginians, the Romans, the Suebi, the Visigoths, the Moors and even Celts pass by and leave their marks! Besides the fact that until this day people from various roots live together here in peace, they all left and incredible heritage on this city of the 7 Hills. 

Portuguese are wonderful hosts but they were also great and fierce Discoverers. In the15th and 16th Centuries they left their footprint in Africa, Asia, Canada, Brazil, ....

Your own expedition begins as ours, here, by the riverside of the "Tejo".

Use your camera as a witness of this incredible city and its inhabitants, and write your own story. Lisbon light will be your best ally.

 

Lisbon in 5 top-points:

The Light of Lisbon, she’s also called the White City for its luminosity. Lisbon is certainly the European city where you’ll have the most incredible and original photographic experience through her so exceptional light. The definition of photography is Light.

The different perspectives, the city of seven hills. This feature allows different perspectives. During the tour you will discover a city from different angles. Lisbon is ideal for photos in low and high angle.

The river and the depth of field. The Tagus gives this city a great feature: the concept of infinity.

The Timelessness of the decor. The city itself seems to be a great decor; many places have remained intact, as if frozen in time. These are the places that we would like you to discover during our tour.

The plurality of its architecture. Lisbon is a city with a multi-faced architecture, where you can loose yourself in the small romantic streets inspired by northern Africa or standing in front of some futurist buildings that have been constructed for Lisbon's World Exposition in 1998.

The origin of the project saw the light of the day about one year ago, in the mind of Pedro Pina Vasconcelos, LisbonPhotographer's Founder.

Pedro is a Portuguese Photographer, known for his transversal vision of photography. After a 8-year journey, where he worked around the world (New Zealand, South-East Asia, Spain, Germany, ...) he returned to his home-town Lisbon, a city where the light has always inspired his creations.

It is from the will of sharing his love for Lisbon and his Art that the "Lisbon Photographer" project was born.

 

What is a Lisbon Photographer's Atelier in 5 points ?

Unique...
... as each Photographer and as each one of your photographs.
Our guides adapt to the unique needs of each one of its LisbonPhotographers.

Insight...
The goal of our ateliers is to help you discover the Photography in you. 

The point of view...
Beyond the technical and artistic teachings our guides are all Lisbon lovers and they will be thrilled to share their Lisbon with you. 

The Human Side...
Photography is the solitary act that we share the most. The ateliers are limited to a maximum of 5 participants, so that we can have the calm, the dedication, and enough proximity to create.

The average duration of each workshop-tour is 3 hours. 

Philosophy...
Lisbon Photographer is a community built around a common-life philosophy: Sharing and Respecting are its cornerstones. 

This is why the compensation of each Guide aims to provide her/him with a decent life comfort, and all our prices are thought as to be affordable for all Photography Lovers.

Each tour is also built with the aim to offer you an intimate Lisbon, very close to their inhabitants and life. 

We also have an eco-friendly engagement, so all our tours are made walking and we take care not to leave anything behind us.

In a natural way, we adapt to your needs and your ways. Even if Lisbon is no not the easiest (or at least a bit more sportive than usual) city in terms of accessibility for those with reduced mobility, we think it is quite important to change that a bit. Without any price change, our ateliers will naturally adapt to your specific needs.

Last, but not least... the first advice Lisbon Photographer has for you:
get geared-up before your photo-adventures: You will need good walking shoes, a charged camera battery, empty memory cards (or films!!), sun-protection, water, your notebook (a real book and pencil), and leave the most space in your backpack for good-humour and curiosity.

After working 20 years as producer and artistic director in France, I have based myself in Lisbon in 2011. Meeting Pedro, the incredible diversity of his Universe drove us to create our own production company "40 Camels". This company was founded by us to bring us the freedom and independence that we need.

On the side of our activities for the Cinema, the Television or Advertising, we feel the need to be more in contact with those with whom we share our passion since always you!

It was how LisbonPhotographer started to bloom in Pedro's spirit, and how together we gave a body to the project.

This community of Photography lovers, is alive for and thanks to your support.

I am here to answer all your questions or ideas, because you are also a LisbonPhotographer.

Life is like taking a pic. We work hard to create that project and once we print and see it, we are able to enjoy the composition and the little treasure of what we didn't think about before.

I say "we" because each of you, guide, LisbonPhtographer contribute to make it possible.
