Photo Tours

How would you feel about learning the basics of photography in an amazing photography-devoted afternoon and night?


In LisbonPhotographer we have the right Atelier for you!

Photo Initiation Full day-Atelier


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.

After such a full day the only thing you need is to charge you batteries and your camera.


Step by step, what will you find in LisbonPhotographer’s Photo Initiation Atelier Day:

Night: Outdoors


  • After a small break, and depending on the time of the year (because of changes in the sunset time), we will meet once more, but now to explore a different world in photography that night brings to us.
