The original Barcelona photography workshop – A memorable and educational vacation for the avid photographer

  |   Photography Workshops

Our Barcelona photography workshop offers the travel photographer a unique photo adventure in one of the world’s most photogenic cities. Designed from our years of experience of combining international photo workshops, photographic tours, photo walks, and an insiders knowledge of Barcelona and the surrounding Catalonia countryside, these small-group experiences were our first photographic destination, and are still one of our most popular.

With carefully designed itineraries to ensure that your time with us is as inspirational, productive and enjoyable as possible, you will also enjoy excellent accommodation and some of the best Catalan cuisine that Barcelona has to offer. Our adventure covers photogenic gems in the hidden quarters of the city, away from the typical tourist trails, as well as some of the world’s best architecture. Our itinerary covers the Borne, Raval, Gothic quarter, Sagrada Familia, Poblenou, Barceloneta, Gracia, Montjuic and Eixample districts. From capturing early morning street photography in the narrow, washing-clad streets of El Raval, and the Modernist architecture in the Eixample during golden hour, to the stunning alleyways and plazas of the Gothic quarter at night, our Barcelona photo workshop includes an excellent mix of architecture, environmental portraits and street photography.

Architecture plays a major role in the reason for visiting Barcelona. Each neighbourhood of the city has it’s own particular character, yet manages to harmonise with one another. And due to it’s relatively small size, the residents of Barcelona have a warmth that is usually more associated with a small town than a metropolitan hub. It’s this diversity that offers the travel photographer so much to capture through your camera. From our scheduled group workshops, to one-on-one private workshops, our itineraries can be customised specifically to your preferred photographic genre.

From our 6 day Barcelona photo workshop, we also offer an optional 4 day add-on to rural Catalonia. Prepare to capture some of Europe’s most stunning areas of natural beauty, quaint medieval villages and photogenic locals. The Catalonia extension offers a glimpse into the most diverse province of Spain, and is a dream destination for the avid landscape photographer. As with our other international photo workshops, our Barcelona workshop is run through Photo Workshop Adventures, our affiliate with over 150 photo adventures in over 50 countries.

A full list of our upcoming international photography destinations can be found on our Workshops page. Please feel free to contact us with any queries. We look forward to hearing from you!
