Barcelona Morning/Afternoon Photography Tour
6 hour duration
Photography Tour Overview
Our Barcelona Morning/Afternoon photography tours have been carefully designed for the avid photographer who wants to make the most out of their time available while in this fabulous city.
Rather than going to the typical tourist spots, you will discover the most authentic neighbourhoods of Barcelona, as well as the most photogenic locations within the city. A local, professional photographer will instruct you in the art of photography while you wander through the city’s narrow streets, open plazas and wide open boulevards. With more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other city in Europe, a fabulous variety of Gothic, Bohemian, Modernist, and ultra-Modern architecture awaits the photographer visiting Barcelona.
Similar to our Morning tour, the Morning/Afternoon tour goes further in terms of the sites we will visit, but also in the time available for invaluable, one-on-one instruction. This tour can also be customised on request to become a combined 3 Hour Morning Photo Tour + 3 Hour Post Processing Class at our studio: An awesome way of combining an overview of the city, while improving your photographic skills from the start of the image-taking process all the way up to the final, edited image.
The tours cater for beginners, advanced amateurs and semi-pro photographers. All of our tours are private tours for individuals, couples and small groups as we believe this makes for a more productive and enjoyable experience.
Photo tour itinerary
The meeting point would be on the corner, outside the BBVA bank at Plaza Catalunya.
From Plaza Catalunya, we will head down the Ramblas to visit to the Boqueria market – a visual delight for photographers! We will capture the colours and chaos as the locals go about their daily routine in this fantastic market.
This itinerary also includes a visit through Barcelona’s oldest district, and also one of its most authentic. The Raval district is a great neighbourhood to photograph: Modern architecture, washing-clad facades, skateboarders and unusual characters willing to have their photos taken make for great street photography.
From here, we will cut across the Ramblas and head towards the Gothic Quarter. Here you will step back in time through the small alleyways and courtyards filled with soft light and great atmosphere. The old stone walls, gargoyles, Gothic and Roman architecture are in stark contrast to the street performers we will pass by and will make for some stunning images. Within the Gothic quarter is the old Jewish Quarter and ancient synagogue. This small neighbourhood has some of the oldest habitable buildings in Barcelona.
The Borne district is an exceptional neighbourhood to photograph, as you will see how the locals go about their day, devoid of any influences of tourism. We will walk the narrow dark alleyways and visit Gothic churches, trendy stores, open plazas, unusual architecture and other points of interest before we head towards one of the marvels of Catalan Modernism – the Music Palace. This building is one of the finest examples of Art Nouveau architecture in existence and is also one of Barcelona’s World Heritage Sites. A mixture of Modernist and Moorish influences make this building very unique.
This would be the end of the tour, and I will escort you to a recommended restaurant or back to Plaza Catalunya.
