Explore, Create and Be Inspired

Our intensive Ultimate Travel Photography Workshop in Portugal is for those who want to deep dive into the world of photography while exploring the best sites.

Rick Hulbert, in association with our Portuguese-based photographers, Fernando Piçarra and Marion McCristall, invite you to explore the fairy-tale like area of Sintra (UNESCO World Heritage Site), and the vibrant, old world capital of Lisbon. Rick is an award winning, internationally recognized architect, photographer, and world-class workshop leader.

We will take you off the beaten path to explore stunning vistas where you can photograph the natural landscape from the top of windswept cliffs or rural valleys. The Atlantic Coast offers opportunities to photograph seascapes with long expanses of beach as well as charming coves tucked between hills.

Lisbon is a vibrant old-world city with distinct historical and avant-garde neighborhoods to photograph. We’ll drive through cobbled, narrow streets to reach hilltops with fantastic vistas of the city, Tagus River, and the 25th April Bridge. The Expo area of Lisbon boasts modern architecture with dynamic lines of glass and steel. The historical churches at Jerónimos Monastery and the Pantheon provide opportunities to photograph Gothic, Manueline, and Moorish architecture from the 16th Century.

We will photograph the enchanting 18th Century limestone palace and cathedral at Mafra. The basilica with rose coloured marble and columns is a stunning example of sumptuous Baroque architecture.

We will also explore the restored Saloia village called Aldea de Mata Pequena. You will be captivated by the charms of the small houses and antiques set in a rural environment overlooking lush valleys and hills.

We created The Ultimate Travel Photography Workshop to help you better see and perceive the environment. Once registered, Rick will contact participants to offer a selection of illustrated lectures we will include during the experience. Our days will be filled with expert photography instruction, hands-on in the field practice, lectures, and constructive evaluation of images. This exclusive workshop is limited to twelve participants.

Rick Hulbert is an acclaimed heritage and urban photographer who is passionate about teaching. He will conduct you on an unforgettable photography journey accompanied by Fernando Piçarra and Marion McCristall, exceptional Pictours Portugal photographers, who will work with you to provide the best photography experience possible.
