Who is the Tour Leader

José Manuel Santos by Trey Ratcliff

José Manuel lives and breathes Porto, the city where he was born in 1960. He has traveled up and down Portugal both by car and on a motorbike since 1980, always with his camera in his bag. He is not only a deep connoisseur of his country, but also a skillful storyteller.

His passion for photography began when he received his first camera in 1987, a Canon EOS 650. With it he first captured the beauty of Portuguese landscapes, and today he is now known for the originality of his urban photography. José has had the privilege of photographing Portugal with renowned national and international photographers. His work has not only been showcased in many exhibitions in Portugal and abroad, but it has earned him the title of an award-winning photographer.

He has participated and organized several tours and trips in Portugal and in other European countries.

He is Photo Tour Leader in Valérie Jardin’s Hit The Streets Porto and Scott Kelby’s WorldWide Photowalk Porto
