Barcelona Photography Tours on TripAdvisor

  |   Photo Tours

Barcelona Photography Tours has the pleasure and honour of receiving the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award, as well as being inscribed into the prestigious Hall of Fame category. Reviews, testimonials and recommendations of our photo tours and workshops from our guests are an excellent way of conveying their past experiences with us, and for that we thank you. Today, TripAdvisor and other providers of online services for the tourism sector have superseded that of paper magazines and other publications. Tourists are more likely to put their faith in the experiences and feedback of past clients.

The same can be said of photographic publications. With the huge rise in smartphone usage, photographers can easily search for this information online. Photography and travel are our passion, and we love nothing more than to share our experience to fellow photographers visiting Barcelona with photography in mind. From complete beginners to semi-pro’s and even professionals, we are confident that a private photo walk or group workshop with us will be the highlight of your trip!

One of the aspects we pride ourselves on is giving a totally personable experience – something that can only be offered with one-on-one, hands-on instruction. This could entail improving on the photographer’s technical knowledge, seeing the world and how to capture everyday life through the eyes of a professional photography instructor, or simply being guided to Barcelona’s most photogenic locations during the best lighting conditions.

We know that visitors to Barcelona usually have limited time, either on vacation or for business purposes. Spending some of that time with us will open your eyes to your craft and hopefully remain with you for the future, consequently helping you achieve a higher standard of photography, wether it be for architectural, environmental portraits or street photography.

I booked this experience as a birthday surprise for my husband, who is a great landscape and nature photographer but had never really ventured into the world of street photography, and it did not disappoint! Mabel was a great teacher, showing us ways to utilize the light and architecture to get the best framing and most interesting perspectives. She also showed us some nifty tricks on our cameras that we had never learned before, so even without the mini tour through Barcelona, it would have been worth the cost to learn how to better use our cameras! Would highly recommend if you’re looking for a different kind of experience in such an amazing city. Thank you, Mabel!
This was a present for my 11 year old son who has recently shown an interest in photography. Mabel was incredibly patient & informative, and really inspired my son. He rated the tour as 10/10 and I can see can’t wait to put all he’s learnt into practice. Thanks so much Mabel!!!
My husband and I travel often and attempt to capture our memories through photography. We are novice photographers and like to take a photo tour whenever possible with locals who will be able to share the most picturesque parts of a given destination. First, we were extremely please with the price of the private tour for two (given the amount of time – 6 hours) and the ease of making the reservation. On this trip, we connected with Nico who not only showed us very interesting perspectives but really taught us in a way that expanded our ability to use our cameras and capture beautiful images on our own. We spent 6-hrs in the late afternoon and early evening, during which we learned how to use our cameras in manual mode and in darkness without flash. He helped with camera settings and composition. We continued to use these learnings throughout the rest of our stay in Barcelona, on for the remaining of our travels, and ever since. Nico offered to follow me on Instagram, critique my photos, and offer further advise. He also offered his personal email to respond to any questions about Barcelona during our stay. This was by far our favorite experience in Barcelona.
Mabel is an incredible and patient photography expert and a great guide to Barcelona. I booked 2 tours with her – one afternoon/evening and one night time. She is kind, patient and lovely to spend time with strolling around various neighborhoods. Her expertise is street photography and within a few minutes I had learned to do things that I had tried on my own and failed. She helped me with my camera settings, the best composition and how to take motion photos at night. These were invaluable experiences and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Laurie Cohen, the founder of Barcelona Photography Tours, made the arrangements so easy via email. The time with Mabel was truly a highlight of my experiences in Spain. Muchas gracias!
We signed up for a 3.5 hour tour in the a.m. at Barcelona, a surprise for my wife. We are just getting into photography and love to do it during our travels, Laurie was able to provide very insightful and helpful tips and tricks for our Nikon D5000. We saw so much of the city that isn’t filled with tourist traps, and learned a bit of history too! Laurie also gave us insight to his favorite restaurants, one of which we visited MULTIPLE times! We were able to use the skills learned from our tour throughout our trip in Spain. Communication was great, service was amazing. Book the tour, you won’t be disappointed!
