Join Tatra Photography in Vienna a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most historic cities in Europe. Vienna is steeped in history with its legacy shaped by famous residents Mozart, Beethoven and Sigmund Freud. The city lying on the banks of the Danube river is also famous for its Imperial palaces including Schönbrunn, the Habsburgs’ summer residence, The Imperial Palace, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Belvedere Palace, State Opera House and City Hall.

We will have plenty of time with sunrise, sunset and the blue hour to really explore this diverse city with our cameras. We will seek out interesting nooks and crannies as well as the better-known and more iconic sites around the city and really concentrate on looking upwards as well as at eye level. Our aims will be to give you ample opportunity to really capture the history of this amazing city with its emperial architectural opportunities and help you get to grips with urban photography – and what a location in which to learn!

As well as having extended and flexible time in Vienna, where we will work one-on-one with each guest to hone your Urban photography skills, we will also provide demonstrations of advanced cityscape photography techniques, such as High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) 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 urban photography composition, how to use the camera to create wow-factor images and how to approach photography with the eye of a pro.

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.
