* Meet up, introduce ourselves and talk about your photography skills and what you like to shoot. This will last for a maximum of 20 minutes depending on how many photo walk participants we have at the time.

* Learn how to see through the eyes of a professional photographer/photojournalist with 12 years of international experience working in the field.

* Our classroom will be the beautiful locations of Lisbon. Small streets, alleyways and some gorgeous viewpoints. The route is the perfect mix of "locals only" streets and some tourist attractions.

It is an interesting experience that helps you get to know the city better. You have the opportunity to see places you may not have visited and to learn about photography. Gilby will give you useful advice and he will make you see things you may not notice about a building or street. I recommend this experience.

Professional and nice. This is experience is very high quanlity but reasonable price. It was beyond my expectation. Doing a photowalk with Gilby, you can not only get the ideal photograpy you want but also know lots of the stories about Lisboa. Gilby is a very good local guide that he can design the walk route properly,which allow everyone to enjoy and explore the old street in their own pace and have a perfect ending. I would recommend Gilby to my friends when travel to Lisboa.

I always wanted to meet other photographers. I always want to make friends when I visit the other places. I always wanted to get to know the real old Lisbon and find some hidden gems. Gilby's activity happens to offer both! Gilby is a professional photographer and really knows his profession! It is a super fun experience wondering around the old town , looking for great places to shoot city view pictures and practicing the story telling technique. Gilby basically brought me to every amazing spots around Alfama and Garça. It's definitely an amazing trip. 10/10 recommending.

Wonderful experience! I was visiting Lisbon with my family and decided to carve out an afternoon for myself. It ended up being such an enriching experience. Gilby is super knowledgeable about the area and a great photographer. He is also very friendly and shared useful photo tips along the way. His English skills are excellent. We covered a lot of ground in 3 hours but he was checking in periodically to ensure I was comfortable. I highly recommend this tour.

This experience was absolutely wonderful. I recently received a new camera and have been excited to learn how to use it and capture images from my trips. This experience was perfect. Gilby provided pointers on how to use my camera and was patient as I worked to get the perfect shot that I was happy with. Also this was the best way to see more than the tourist areas and really see Lisbon. I would recommend this experience to anyone whether traveling alone or in a group.
