During a week, we’ll be photographing many of this region’s most incredible sceneries. Along its impressive coastline, we’ll find wonderful cliffs, spectacular beaches and gorgeous rock formations. But, at the same time, we’ll visit precious forests, waterfalls and creeks. All these natural jewels will allow us to enjoy a fabulous experience.
By other hand, the tour will be guided by our professional photographers Sergio Lanza and/or Julio Castro. Julio, who designed the itinerary, is native to the area, so he knows perfectly all the best locations. This will allow us to visit the most amazing places and, at the same time, may others unknown for most people.
In many of the locations, we will have the chance to learn and/or practice long exposure photography. That’s the reason we advice to bring ND filters to this photo tour, since they will be really useful. We will be practicing filter techniques to get precious effects in our shots, depending on which shutter speed we use.

As we always do during our photo tours, specially in those focused in landscape photography, we will pay special attention to sunrise and sunset. These are normally the best moments of light during each day. For this reason, we will try to enjoy them as much as possible, trying to get the best results in our pictures. However, we’ll keep taking pictures also during the rest of the day, apart from traveling between locations.

This is probably the most beautiful and photogenic lighthouse in Galicia, and one of the most photographed in all Spain and Europe. There are incredible rock formations in the surroundings, so we will have enough time to explore it before sunset.

That jacket will protect you from the cold but, at the same time, you’ll look great to be photographed in some of the most beautiful locations around all Galicia!
‘Totally recommended photo trip, with a complete itinerary and great locations. Very well organized too. Furthermore, the great selection of hotels is very appreciated as well. However, the best thing is Sergio’s work and attention during the trip, as well as Julio’s, on the days he joined us. They always showed extraordinary kindness, service, and constantly helping each participant in everything they needed to get their pictures. I am sure I will keep traveling again with Dream Photo Expeditions. From a 1 to 5 scale, I would give the, 5 points.’
‘Galicia 2020 has been my second photo tour with Sergio Lanza and Dream Photo Expeditions, after Ladakh, India, the previous year. In both trips, Sergio has proven to be a great professional, as well as an excellent human being. Great photographer, tireless when it’s time to get our for taking pictures, and always helping each one of us to get pictures and feel happy. His photo tours are totally recommended experiences to discover magnificent places, while you learn photography and enjoy shooting in very good company.’
‘From my last summer Galicia Photo Tour, guided by Sergio Lanza and Julio Castro, and with the added difficulties due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I would like to highlight the great treatment from the first time I send an info request, as well as during all the time previous to the trip, always helpful despite the different challenges that the pandemic was brining, which several times ended up making me think I would not be able to participate. They always transmitted a trustful and responsible feeling.
Then, during the trip, they worked extremely hard, being close and kind to us, both in the photography and the personal aspects. A very exciting trip, focused in the photographic activity, working in a huge number of locations, and treating several photography genres, aspects and techniques, with a notable personal production as a result of this intense workshop.
However, then, even after the trip, the contact keeps frequent, helping with edition videos, pictures from the trip, or gear questions. Traveling with them, you get a ‘family feeling’, and their work makes a before/after moment in your photography production. Thanks so much dear friends, and long life to Dream Photo Expeditions.’
‘Sharing some days with Sergio Lanza and Julio Castro around the beautiful Galicia landscapes was a real luxury. Great professionals and better people, with a very close treatment and a fantastic sense of humors.
See you soon in the next trip!’
‘My first experience with Dream Photo Expeditions totally overpassed my expectations. I have enjoyed a fabulous week together with two great professionals and visiting wonderful locations that I didn’t know existed. I have already book my next photo tour with them for November.’
