The Austrian Lake District, also known as the Salzkammergut, is an incredibly beautiful region that boasts some of the most stunning landscapes in Europe. With crystal-clear lakes, picturesque mountains, and idyllic villages that have inspired artists, writers, and photographers for centuries, it’s a paradise for photography enthusiasts.

This tour is tailor-made for those who love to capture the beauty of nature through their camera lens. You’ll have the opportunity to explore and photograph some of the most breathtaking scenery in Europe, while also immersing yourself in the rich history and culture of the region.

One of the highlights of the tour is the Hallstatt village, a UNESCO World Heritage site that’s nestled in a valley surrounded by majestic mountains. With its charming houses and picturesque church, it’s no wonder that Hallstatt is one of the most photographed locations in Austria.

Another must-see location on the tour is the Wolfgangsee, a stunning lake that’s surrounded by rolling hills and mountains. Here, you can capture the reflections of the surrounding landscape in the crystal-clear water and create truly breathtaking images.

Throughout the tour, you’ll receive expert guidance and tuition from a professional photographer. From composition and shutter speeds to apertures and understanding histograms, you’ll learn everything you need to know to capture the perfect shot. All levels are catered for with both digital and film cameras.

The Discover Photography workshop goes beyond field guidance and tuition. You’ll also receive tutorials to develop your camera and photography skills. The location tutorials cover a variety of topics, such as understanding and achieving accurate exposures, and expanding your vision of a subject through the art of composition.

So, whether you’re an experienced photographer or just starting out, this tour is the perfect way to explore one of the most photogenic regions in Europe. Get ready to immerse yourself in the beauty of the Austrian Lake District and create unforgettable memories

Your tutor for this workshop is Paulo Silva. Paulo is one of Portugal’s finest and most sought-after photographers. Paulo has a passion for landscape and nature photography, concentrating the majority of his work in Portugal’s Ria de Aveiro. Being a master at using his camera and working with colors and contrasts, he stays away from Photoshop, preferring to use filters when necessary to achieve the ideal balance of light and motion.

For him, the philosophy of “get it right in the camera” certainly applies. In 2015 Paulo created a course in IFP at the Portuguese Institute of Photography. His award-winning photographs have been published in national and international magazines and featured in gallery exhibits.
