Join Tatra Photography in Madeira for a 5 day photography tour to capture this undiscovered volcanic Island. Madeira Island is rugged with high coastal cliffs, jagged mountain peaks, multi-coloured towns, fishing villages and an epic coastline.

During this 4-night photography workshop we will cover the main Madeira Island. We will have plenty of time out in the field at sunrise & sunset for seascape photography and also capture the cloud inversions during this time of the year from high viewpoints. During the day we will be able to photograph the waterfalls and old towns.

We will also seek out interesting nooks and crannies in the towns & villages as well as the better-known and more iconic sites. Our aim will be to give you ample opportunity to really capture the history and beauty of this amazing Island.

As well as having extended and flexible time in Portugal where we will work one-on-one with each guest to hone your seascape and urban photography skills, we will also provide demonstrations of advanced landscape and cityscape photography techniques, such as High Dynamic Range Imaging, image stacking and night photography.

We also encourage participants to bring a selection of their work for a review and critique; our professional tutor will discuss the art of landscape photography composition, how to use the camera to create wow-factor images and how to approach photography with the eye of a pro.
