Our private photography tours are designed for you to get the most you possibly can out of your camera. Beginners and intermediate shooters will benefit most from our program.
As we walk through the photo-ready streets of Barcelona, we'll break down seemingly complex terms – aperterure, f-stop, ISO, shutter speed – into simple concepts. You´ll feel the important shift in which your control over your camera goes beyond your camera's control over you.
That little green box on your dial that indicates the automatic setting? By the end of your private tour, you'll have the knowledge to kiss that little green training-wheel goodbye.

Barcelona Experience offers your team of employees a professional, well-organized series of photography workshops that cover the essential aspects of taking captivating photos.
I combine our three-part photo workbook with hands-on experiences that allow your team to apply in the streets the principles they learn in the classroom.
My photography workshop can be used purely as a learning experience, or I can craft a custom photo competition in which teams compete against each other to take photographs that most accurately reflect individual principles taught in our workshop.
I also can incorporate our workshops into a photo treasure hunt, in which your team explores Barcelona, camera in hand, as they search for clues that lead them to the some of the city's most famous landmarks and buildings.
