Local wildlife photographer and nature guide, Fernando Ramoa has recently started implementing new specialty photo hides in Faia Brava Reserve in Western Iberia. As part of a new enterprise offering in the area, the new photo hides will have a core focus on photographing griffons and endangered vultures in the Coa Valley.
Designed in conjunction with professional photographers in mind, the hides have special photographic glass for viewing and also five individual camera ports for external lenses and image capturing.
Hide photography brings you as the photographer into a unique position, closer to the wildlife while not impacting on the natural habits and movements of the animals or birds. The hides are well insulated for both animal sensitivity and also temperature variance during the year.
In partnership with ATN, the photography hides will continue to function in the plight to protect and also monitor these endangered birds, while creating an enterprise which supports local tourism development and contributes to the ongoing conservation of this area.
The primary vulture hide is supported by a second wildlife hide based on a water source in Faia Brava reserve. With a focus on a variety of smaller bird species and mammals ranging from foxes to deer and wild horses, this hide has all the trimmings needed to keep the wildlife enthusiast or photographer well entertained during the daily hides’ sessions.
The hides are fitted with comfortable director chairs, viewing ports, local information. Join Fernando Romão on a photographic journey through the Coa valley!
The hides are opening in early April 2017!
