Dave Sheldrake runs regular informal Western Algarve Photography Walks through a Facebook Group. This is an informal group to help people to become a better photographer. There will be no formal teaching, just events advertised on the page, where members will walk and talk and take photographs and Dave will offer his help to individuals during these walks. It won’t be strenuous and each walk will cost you a donation that you can afford to a local charity or free if you cannot afford to pay. The idea is to enjoy the Algarve, people’s company and some photography too! Events will be placed on the FB group as and when they happen. Each walk will cover lots of different subjects and skills and it matters not a jot what your equipment is or how skilled you are.
