About Travel Photography Walking Tours of Goa by Francisco de Souza
Francisco is an award-winning international photographer who has created a series of fully guided private walking tours through some of North Goa’s most interesting local markets and villages. On the tours he shares simple to understand (and remember) tips to truly enhance your photography skills and really boost your confidence when taking travel photographs. Much more than just photography tours – these cultural tours of Goa provide a unique insight into Goan people and places. All of the sites we visit are engaging and interesting in their own right, so non-photographers are very welcome. In addition you don't need a fancy camera to join a walking tour; point-and-shoot cameras and smartphones can also capture amazing photographs if you know the tricks and learn the right approach. The walking tours are a perfect mix of learning your camera's capabilities and perfecting your photography while enjoying local Goan life. Francisco also guides tours through North and South India.

Last month I was in Goa, India and was fortunate to do a 1 day photography tour with Francisco. Undoubtedly, he is an insanely talented photographer, but what really stood out for me was how genuine and effortless was his connect with the locals. His standout tip to me- ‘taking a quality portrait/street shot and moving on to the next is easy, but its when you pause to talk to your subjects, hear their amazing life stories, show them the pic you clicked, share a chai/meal with them and express your gratitude, is when you graduate to become a true-blue portrait and street photographer’. Francisco- it was an absolute pleasure and I am amazed how much I learnt in just a day! Your insights around composition, settings, light angles etc were invaluable. And here’s hoping I can join you on one of your Benares photo tours some day.

We can honestly say our full day photography tour with Francisco was one of the best tours we’ve ever taken. Cisco met us promptly and asked us what we wanted from our photography and soon grasped our photography capabilities with Garth on his DSLR and Phil on his iPhone. From the moment we started to the end of the day Cisco constantly gave great advice on how to improve our technical photography skills with lots of practical tips. We loved the street portrait photography aspect of the day, Cisco taught us how to approach people for their photo and how best to photograph them in their surroundings. We didn’t want a sugar-coated tour of Goa, we wanted to see real life, the tour around the markets gave us just that. It’s a well organised photography tour of Goa, even if you’re not into photography it would make a great day out. Thanks Cisco and for all the extra tips for eating out and accommodation at the beaches :)

We spent a day in Goa on a one day market fishing tour and a 3 day Varanasi tour and I can honestly say it's the best thing I have ever done on holiday. If you aren't a big fan of 'tick the box' tourist spots ..well this is the tour for you. In varanasi we wandered thru lane ways for hours and got amazing photos. Francisico taught us how to approach people to get the perfect shot and made photography on manual a breeze. I use to only use auto and only take sneaky shots of people ..which never ended up that great, so have missed alot of great opportunities. Also Francisico has a great personality and fun to be with so do yourself a favour and book a photo tour with him. You have to book well in advance.

After last years fabulous day with Cisco, we decided that he needed to spend a weekend with us! Udaipur was the destination, and what fun we had!! Cisco reminded us how to use our cameras, and we got some great shots. We cannot praise him highly enough!!!

Fransisco took myself and my wife on a tour around a local market. He was very friendly and before we started asked us what we hoped to photograph and what kind of technical assistance or advice we needed to enable us to get the images we wanted. He was obviously well know to some the local people as they greeted him warmly amd were more than happy to be photographed. Just this on the tour would have been great because it can be intimidating to approach people for photography but Francisco has an obvious love for India and its culture and he talked and explained many things about India during our 3 hours together and that made his walking tour a far better experience than just a stroll around a market. I can't recommend this highly enough .. to be honest if you don't even have a camera then do the tour just for the 3 hours of exploration with a great guy.
