Miguel Ribeiro Fernandes
I live in the city where I was born, Lisboa, and have been working as a photographer since 1999. My passion for photography comes from an early age, for me, it is a way to discover and understand the world. My approach is totally candid, and I love street photography, exploring the city and its characters. I combine photojournalism and portraiture, all with a very documental approach.
My work has already reached the pages of major publications, like The New York Times and Monocle, and major corporations, like Shell and Siemens. In wedding photography, I also found another way of telling stories. Besides photography, I also produce video and have directed documentaries and several corporate videos since 2010. Since 2012 I also work on education and culture projects of the EU, teaching workshops and projects of social inclusion.

Reviews for Miguel
Outstanding Experience ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This was my fourth city with Aperture Tours. My guide, Miguel introduced me to different aspects of photography that I had previously considered challenging and helped me truly understand them. It wasn't an overload of information either, I took away enough from both the day and night sessions that I can now incorporate them independently. I came back with so many memorable shots and I can't wait to display. In addition to his photography skills, Miguel also happens to know the city very well. We were able explore multiple areas that were off the beaten path. I highly recommend Aperture Tours and especially Miguel for the Lisbon workshop.
Great Tour ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
3 of us booked the double photo tour of Lisbon and thought it was great. Miguel was our tour guide, a professional photographer, and offed great suggestions. He asked us if there was anything specific we wanted to photograph and he made sure we got all our photos. I highly recommend Aperture Tours.
