The Urban Journey Man helping you create memorable pictures.
I will be host to your photography tour with a very personalised view to Barcelona, combining my skills and passion for photography and travel. I will guide you to some of my favorite photographic locations that I have meticulously researched.
I would request that photographers regardless of their skill level at least have a digital single lens reflex camera (or a compact camera) with manual settings. If not, it's not a problem, as I will assist you in getting the most out of your current camera.
During these photographic workshop tours, whether you're a novice or an experienced photographer, you will benefit from some very basic ¨how-to¨ techniques, in order to help you improve your abilities. There are many ways of seeing, but how we see is most important in helping make memorable holiday photographs.
My Photographic excursions will take you through such picturesque locations as the Gothic Quarter, Ciutat Vella, Barceloneta and the Raval districts, all located in the old town. Montjuic and Collseroella parks and gardens of Barcelona can also be included if specified ahead of my customised tours.
We will visit such places as the Boqueria, Sant Antoni and Sant Caterina Markets, the main Cathedral, the Santa Maria del Mar, CCCB, MACBA museums. With a special focus on out of the way squares, tiny narrow streets which characterise Barcelona's authentic experience.
During your Barcelona photographic workshop tour, I will reveal many of the most picturesque elements of this city, while challenging your photographic and creative abilities in a relaxed and helpful manner. All of this is in order to assist you in getting the most out of your picture-making tour experience.

- Guiding Services
Estimated Local Cash Needed
60 Euros - One never knows what one might want to purchase at the last minute. Of course mostly all shops and museums except debit or credit cards, so cash is not really necessary. You might encounter or decide to do things that are not a part of the discussed itinerary. So, I leave it open to the possibility that you might want to shop, take a taxi, eat something special you see along the way etcetera, at your own expense.
- Personal Expenses
- Public Transportation Tickets

Not a licensed guide. No vocally aided tours within historical monuments or museums. We can certainly quietly discuss within the confines of most museums and monuments. In general I work with professional chauffeurs and licensed taxi's drivers.
