Trip – Barcelona


Join Bill and your fellow photography enthusiasts on a 5-day trip to Barcelona. Bill will take you around the city on a tour of its photography highlights. When out in the field, Bill will help you compose the best shots and give guidance on how best to create the type of images you want. Please note this is a tour with guidance, not formal lessons.

We will visit the Gothic Cathedral, the Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, the beach, the Montjuïc Communications Tower, Montjuïc Castle and travel in the cable cars and on the funicular to capture stunning shots of the city at different times of the day and night.

Barcelona is renowned for its architecture and cultural significance. We will also visit the Fundación de Joan Miro. On top of this Bill will take you out to a speakeasy and can arrange for you to make your own Sangria! You can also go to a gig and dance the night away as some of us are going to see Caravan Palace on Friday evening. You can book a ticket here if you wish to come along for this.
