What you'll do
You love traveling. You have a passion for adventure, for discovering new, exciting places around the world. Traveling makes you feel free. You also love photography. You're passionate about seeing the world through your heart and your lens. Photography makes you feel alive. Now imagine waking up every morning feeling FREE and ALIVE, doing the two things you love the most... And getting paid for it! And the best thing? It's absolutely possible. This is your chance to become a professional travel photographer for a day in the breathtaking streets of Barcelona, and discover exactly what you need to do in order to build a successful portfolio that sells. I will explain how professional photographers travel, and I will show you different ways of approaching a new city and working the scene. We will talk about gear, light and composition, about how to approach people and take candid street portraits. We will discuss the choice of color versus black and white, and many other creative choices photographers face every day. You will discover how to build a meaningful, coherent body of work, and you will have lots of time to practice, ask questions and have fun with your camera.
My name is Barbara, and I have been making a living as a full-time travel and street photographer since 2014. After having spent four years in Shanghai and traveling all over Asia, I moved to Barcelona where I continue living the life I love and doing the work I'm most passionate about. I have published two photography monographs and I'm working on my third one on Barcelona. I am passionate about sharing this beautiful art and lifestyle with others, and helping them turn their dreams into reality. If I can do it, you can do it too!
A cup of coffee or your favorite beverage
Where you'll be
We will meet in beautiful Gracia, one of the most authentic neighborhoods of Barcelona. First, we will have a cup of delicious coffee (or your favorite beverage) to get to know each other, and I will walk you through our plan for the experience. You will have a chance to ask me questions about travel and street photography, and also about Barcelona. Then we'll hit the streets together and you will have a chance to practice and learn!
