PHOTOGRAPHIC LEADERS

Paulo Pereira
 
His first real machine was an analogue Minolta, acquired in 1992, which he still keeps religiously. With the move to digital, the passion grew,  has been systematically evolving and combining photography with  his other passion, travel. With 26 countries in its curriculum, it combines its travel experience with  photography, mastering not only the technical aspects of photography,  but also the logistical aspects of travel. During his travels, he absorbed various knowledge of other international photographers with whom he shared great photographic moments, namely in Iceland and Scotland, countries that he elects as dream destinations for any landscape photographer.
José Moreira
 
For approximately 30 years, since he had his first SLR (an original Zenit from the ex-USSR), he has been doing photography as a hobby. Over the past six years, the dedication to this passion has grown and landscape photography has become an obsession.
Since 2013, it collides  workshops and sharing  knowledge acquired with the aim of transmitting this passion to others.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What support will I have from photographic leaders?
In photo details workshops the leaders rarely take pictures in order to be 100% available to the participants. There will be times when you can photograph side by side with the participants and share framing, composition and advisable settings.
The event mentions that the travel is at the expense of each participant, will it be possible to share vehicles?
Yes, it will not only be possible, but as desirable. Usually with participants who have a profile on facebool this issue is addressed a few days before the workshops in order to arrange lifts among themselves and share the respective costs.
How should we proceed with meals not included  ?
All logistical issues during the event are already covered.
What photographic equipment do I need to bring, and what clothing  ?
With your registration and reservation you will be sent a detailed program where all these issues are addressed.
