Portugal – Stuck in Customs

Rene in Lisbon

Daily Photo – Rene in Lisbon

Here’s awesome Rene doing his thing. Whenever he’s near water, most of his clothes come off and he becomes this amphibian kinda guy. This reminds me of a story he told me where he was trying to be cool on some rocks around a girl and then he stepped on a sea urchin and screamed, falling into the ocean.

The Castle in Sintra

Daily Photo – The Castle in Sintra

The Pena Palace is a must-visit if you ever visit Portugal. It’s an absolutely amazing place and you can actually reserve the whole place to yourself ahead of time if you want to take photos. It’s pretty inexpensive and you’ll be able to spend plenty of time getting all the photos you want. Even better, they are totally cool with drones to get some unique shots.

Off the coast of Portugal

Daily Photo – Off the coast of Portugal

We went to a cool beach area near Lisbon and had a fabulous lunch before beginning the whole European tour. Just off the coast were these three boats, perfectly spaced with some dramatic lighting. At this time, I was still getting used to using the Hasselblad and this is one of my favorites!

Morning under the aqueduct in Portugal

Daily Photo – Morning under the aqueduct in Portugal

We headed out here on the very first morning of my Portugal photo workshop. I don’t know why I planned a workshop right before the huge European tour, but I sure did! Sometimes I overschedule myself like that a bit… but, looking back at all these cool photos, now I’m okay with it! Also, I’ve always been a sucker for aqueducts!

Tane in Sintra

Daily Photo – Tane in Sintra

We started off our European photo tour here in Sintra, Portugal. It was my first time there and we visited some of these hilltop villas. They were all cool in the way they worked themselves into the rugged and rocky surroundings. Here, you can see Tane in action!

Belem Tower in Lisbon

Fierce Grace Yoga

I’ve gotten really into this new yoga studio that opened in Queenstown. It’s a chain that started out of London… maybe you have heard of it before. I like it because it’s pretty chill, they play groovy music, and they encourage you to experiment and fall over and stuff… a very sweet ego-free zone too!

This is officially the second place with Rene where he fell into the water. The first time was in Venice, and omg is that an epic story. He actually almost died there because it was the middle of the night. This time, he didn’t die, but he did get a little hurt in a funny way. He had the camera really low to the water and a wave came in and started to carry it away. He ran after it and slipped on the moss, making him land on his ass in a rather hilarious manner. Guys are the worst… we just sit around and laugh whenever our friends get mildly injured by doing something silly.

Street Photography in Lisbon

Cute Dog mix

Have you ever seen this mix before? It’s a Maltese mixed with a Papillon!

Daily Photo – Street Photography in Lisbon

One of my favorite things about street photography is finding interesting combinations of naturally occurring events. It’s a fun “sport” because once you see cool combinations, then you see them all the time, even when you are not taking photos. It adds a nice layer on top of the world!

Details of Sintra, Portugal

Smart Light Bulbs

I urge you NOT to watch this video… It’s so bad that at first, I thought it was a joke.

Daily Photo – Details of Sintra, Portugal

I usually don’t post photos like this, but I actually take them all the time! I do like to get the bigger, epic shots. However, while wandering around, I sometimes try to focus on little details here and there. Also, there’s something about Europe where small vignettes like this just kinda FEEL European… you know what I mean?

A Hippie and a Seth

Lisbon Photo Walk Highlights

You’ll see a little behind-the-scenes from today’s shot in the Lisbon photo walk highlights video below!

Daily Photo – A Hippie and a Seth

I have no idea what this guy was saying to Seth while we were in Lisbon, but you can tell it was pretty intense. We were doing a bit of filming on the way to the photo walk and we came across the band down by the shore. They saw all of our equipment and started really engaging with us. Seth is such a nice guy that everyone talks to him about everything – he must find it exhausting at some point!
