Praia do Magoito

A week or so I headed out to Praia do Magoito to shoot the sunset there. As we’d had some heavy rain over the previous days I set out early and stopped off at the waterfalls at Feverança and Anços on the way. Both of them had more water than I’ve ever seen there before, which combined with the lush green leaves made it the perfect time of year to shoot them.

Praia do Aroeira

Praia do Aroeira

My first visit to Praia do Amoeira last month really blew me away. I couldn’t believe the amount of potential the beach had and I knew then that I’d want to visit it again and again to shoot it in different ways and make use of the many different compositions available.

A Few Days in Alentejo

Alentejo is a large rural area between the industrial heartland of Lisbon and the developed coast of Algarve. We spent five days there over Easter to unwind and spend some time hiking in the countryside.

Praia da Ursa

Praia da Ursa

Ursa is an old favourite amongst photographers and a beach I’ve photographed a number of times. Until recently I thought the access to Ursa was really tricky, but compared to the neighbouring beaches of Aroeira and Ouriçal the descent and subsequent climb back up feels rather tame now.

The Wild Beaches of Cabo da Roca

The Wild Beaches of Cabo da Roca

Since I switched to Fuji last summer my passion for just going out and taking pictures again has been completely rekindled. When I first started photography around 10 years ago my first inspiration and images came from the coastline around where I lived.

Praia da Adraga

Praia da Adraga

We’ve had some changeable weather recently which has led to some fantastic sunset skies. Last week I headed out to the west coast with the intention of shooting Praia Ouriçal, a beach with tricky access at the bottom of some of the highest cliffs in Portugal. However when I arrived at the top of the cliffs the clouds had cleared in the sky that would be infront of that beach, so I headed to nearby Adraga which looked more promising.

Lisbon's Lesser Known Natural Wonders

Lisbon’s Lesser Known Natural Wonders

I’ve lived in Lisbon for over 17 years now, and while I think I’m pretty aware of most of it’s attractions, from the restaurants and wonderful winding streets, from the stunning beaches of the west coast to the forests of Sintra, I’ve started to realise recently that there is so much that I didn’t know about my adopted city.

Champalimaud Foundation for the Unknown

Champalimaud Foundation for the Unknown

The Champalimaud Foundation, or “Centre for the Unkown” is a beautiful building next to the river on the outskirts of Lisbon. I’ve passed by it on the train hundreds of times but only recently got around to shooting it. It’s a fascinating structure with some interesting architectural aspects and water features.

A Few Days in Porto with the X-T1

A Few Days in Porto with the X-T1

Despite having lived in Portugal for around 17 years I’ve spent almost no time in Porto, and as one of my plans for this year is to spend more time shooting different parts of my Portugal Teresa and I decided to spend a few days between Christmas and New Year in the second city.
