What you'll do

We will explore and photograph two of the most beautiful places of Buenos Aires (La Boca & San Telmo) while you learn photography and develop your creative potential. I am a city native and experienced professional photographer, and I will personally assist you in all the necessary steps to achieve the best photographs you will be able to create. Just before the experience starts, and while you enjoy a cup of coffee and a snack in a typical "porteño" cafe, we will talk about the basics of creative photography—exposure, composition, lighting, camera functions, and so on. Printed information papers will be included in this introduction. After the talk in the cafe, we will walk to the different locations with our cameras and we will take photos, applying what we learned about composition, exposure, depth of field, shutter speed, and so on. If you can't find a good composition, I will help you with that until you succeed. If you are already a pro photographer, I can show you the best and most photogenic places and photographic spots, with the best available light, so you will save a lot of time.
Other things to note
Bring your reflex or compact digital camera. You will need extra batteries and memory cards with at least 4 GB. Bring Argentine pesos for incidental expenses, tips, and so on.

Landscape (and travel) photography is my passion. So I created Photo Tours Buenos Aires in 2013. In 2017, 2018 & 2018, I won the "Luxury Travel Guide Awards" and "Travel & Hospitality Awards" (best cultural tour in Bs As). My travel and stock photographs have been published in the most renowned travel magazines, newspapers, websites, and travel guides in the world. I also lead Photo Tours in Patagonia for Photo Workshop Adventures (USA). When I'm not organizing photography tours, I work for Editorial Planeta, making institutional photo-books.

Where you'll be

We will explore La Boca, a colorful area of Buenos Aires, with lots of Cafes and street tango dancers. Vibrant colors are everywhere; it's great for street photography and cityscapes.
After La Boca, we will go to San Telmo: Lezama Park and Dorrego Square surroundings are great for photos, and the San Telmo Market is probably its most particular attraction. Several "Notable Cafes" there, which keep the same aspect as beginnings of 20 century.

Bernado is super professional and helpful. He not only showed a lot of secret spots but also gave a lot of useful tips of the camera. I personally will head to Patagonia later and he have some tips for the landscape shooting. Really recommend the session if you hope to improve the photographing skill.
