Hello everybody,

I'm Irina and I'm 27 years old.

I am spending a lot of my time in Perugia, Italy because I'm a student in international relations here.

But I like to travel more, to discover new places, new people and new food. I like pictures and collect postcards.

After the great success of the last five editions,  Let me Italian you is ready to launch the sixth and exclusive edition of DISCOVER LISBON
 

"Light, say artists, is all important to creating a masterpiece. The azure sky over Lisbon, long hours of summer sunshine and golden sunsets are factors that ensure many visitors go home with fond memories and great photographs of the Portuguese capital. "  Welcome to Lisbon: the City of Light.

DISCOVER LISBON is an innovative project whose purpose is to make the participants live a professional experience for those who love photography and video making

The main goal of the project is to valorise and promote the magical and picturesque  city of Lisbon, in Portugal, through photos, reportage, videos made by photographers (amateurs or not) from different places of the world. DISCOVER LISBON wants to enrich the professional and academic path of the photographer, moreover it wants to enrich his portfolio.

DISCOVER LISBON is supported by IADE-Universidade Europeia.

The two tours of the city are organized in collaboration with Rita the Guide, a professional local guide,who knows all the sights of Lisbon and will take you on a guided tour. Exactly:

1° Tour - Alfama: Alfama is one of the oldest districts in Europe and the former red light district of Lisbon. Surviving the great earthquake of 1755, Alfama is home to relics of the Arabic occupation in the 8th century, roman ruins and monuments regarding the foundation of Portugal 900 years ago! This maze-like little village inside the center of Lisbon will transport you to a simpler time where kids play on the streets, neighbors get together on a daily basis, doors are not locked and where the cars don't fit. Come wander these lost in time streets with a home made ginjinha, discover the birthplace of fado or just chat while drinking a portuguese glass of wine and tasting an amazing cheese platter.                  It includes: Cathedral of Lisbon - The castle of Lisbon - Labyrinth of old Alfama streets - History of Alfama - History of fado.

2° Tour - Downtown: With this tour you get to know the full history of Lisbon that originates as far as 3000 years ago, all the way up to the key events of XXI century Lisbon. We will see the highlights and the top attractions of its unique downtown area, the best viewpoints of the seven hills, talk about culture, literature and politics. The best way to understand the Portuguese people and the country's evolution, from its glorious past until today's Europe best well-kept secret.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             It includes: All downtown area - Best sightseeing points - Historical monuments, churches and ruins - Full Lisbon history.

Belem is unlike the rest of Lisbon, being filled with parks, tree-lined plazas and green open spaces, and is a breath of fresh air from claustrophobic and chaotic central Lisbon. It includes:  Degustation of Pastel de Belem at Fábrica Pastéis de Belém - Mosteiro dos Jeronimos - Padrão dos Descobrimentos, Torre de Belem.

 

In order to improve participants’ professional and academic skills, there will be several workshops and photoshooting:

Anna

’m Anna, I’m 32, I’m born in Austria to a Czech mother and an Austrian father, I’m wife to a Mexican-American husband and we have a 1,5-year-old daughter whom is growing up with 4 languages. Yes, super international, transcultural, multilingual.Being creative in the visual field is one of my favourite things to do since always! For me the used medium is more of a means to an end - creating something beautiful. Another of my favourite things to do is to connect with likeminded people and inspire each other. I’ve studies in the field of A/V media engineering and am discovering photography alongside graphic design right now. So far I’ve enjoyed product photography the most and am super excited to test out more genres together with all of you.

Hi,

I am Rossana and I have been keen on photography for eight years, since I was in middle school; at the age of 14 I was given my first professional camera by my parents as a present for my good school result, and that was for me a great source of satisfaction, since I had to work very hard for it. Ever since I got it, I started learning photography as an autodidact. I taught myself by shooting, experimenting and watching many tutorials online. I would define myself as a keen observer, I love shooting portraits, models, landscapes but also street photography.  In my opinion, the best part of photography is interacting with models and pointing out the best poses and angles, which I believe is the key for getting nice shots.  

I participated in Discover Sicily V.

Rossana

Hello from beautiful İstanbul.

I'm Belkıs, 59 years old and retired English teacher. I was born in Mersin which is on the South coast (Mediterranean) of Turkey. I 'm married and have four children, two grandchildren. I love travelling, seeing different places and meeting different people. I love taking photos whenever my eyes catch a beautiful or interesting nature beauty or something I like. For me, photographs are the best documents to remember your best moments. I love having long walks both in the city and in the nature. When I visit a new place, I love searching the city street by street as well as I do tracking in the nature.

Anna

Hi!

My Name is Anna and I’m a 23-year-old-Austrian. At the moment I am studying law in Graz.

Photography has been my passion since I was a child. I especially like photos with bokeh but for the last few years I did a lot of landscape photography as well. Besides taking photos I love to travel because I like to explore the world, try new food and meet other people. When I’m not taking photos I like to go running and meet friends for a drink or a hike.

This is my first time participating with Letmeitalianyou and I can’t wait to meet all of you. See you soon!
