Europe’s Best Destination Photographers
Come and meet some of our talented photographers across Europe.
Maya and Miguel are photographers based in Cascais Portugal. Maya is originally from Canada and Miguel is from Portugal. They married and have two small children, and have been shooting together for the ex-pat community in Portugal since 2009.
Maya and Miguel say:
"We love outdoor sports like running and surfing, so spend a lot of time outdoors exploring new photography territory."
"We are natural light photographers who shoot lifestyle, outdoor and studio photography. We love to use artificial light as well, when we shoot to create beautiful and natural images. You can do a lot with natural and artificial light together. Since Miguel and I are both surfers we also shoot underwater with our water housing. So we can do any type of shoot for clients in the water too. If we are booking a more elaborate shoot for the client especially outdoors, we can incorporate accessories and vintage furniture into the shoot."
Maya and Miguel speak English, Portuguese and some Spanish and French.

Lisbon city centre is also high recommended to shoot because of its historical venues, tiny roads and monuments. There are many photography options here.
