Improve your photography and discover the real Barcelona with our hands-on tours guided by an expert photographer local to the city.


What makes our photography workshops especial?

You'll have the dedicated attention of a professional photographer along the tour. You will receive continuous advice to improve every picture you take during the day, wether related to composition, exposure, lighting… 

We love Barcelona and we know the city like the back of our hands. We know its photographic possibilities very well and we are willing to share them.

We start each session at a local café or bar to go together through some theory, a theory that we apply right away. Order costs not included.

You don't need to stick to predefined photographical contents or routes. We can design a tailor-made photo course based on your needs and wishes. 

Our private classes aren’t only aimed at individuals. They are also ideal for couples, families or small groups of friends. And prices stay the same.

Best present to myself :) I had the pleasure to do a workshop with Yurian. I learned a lot and had a great time with him. It was fabulous!

Rafa, Pentaprisma Photo Workshops’ host in Barcelona


I was born in Gran Canaria. "Some time ago" I moved to London, where I stayed several years working as assistant photographer. In 2003 I moved to Barcelona where I've lived until now. I work in this unique city as a freelance photographer and as a teacher in different photography schools.

My work has been exhibited in many photo festivals around the world and I was recently acknowledged as one of the most relevant photographers of the new Spanish photo generation by the curator Juan Bufill.

Most of my personal work has been developed in Barcelona, a city I love.

Yurian, Pentaprisma Photo Workshops’ host in Barcelona


I was born in Amsterdam but I grew up in a little town near Barcelona, the city where I learned photography. During my years as student I walked every corner of this amazing city exploring the possibilities of the photographic medium.

I began working as a freelance photographer in 2007 combining comercial works with my personal projects, which are focused on people, their natural environment and my own surroundings. I use photography as a tool that allows me to create my own stories based on the world around me.

My work has been exhibited internationally and has been awarded with several prizes, like the recent Lens Culture Emerging Talent Award.

Vitor, Pentaprisma Photo Workshops’ host in Barcelona


I was born in Brazil, but I feel like a citizen of the world. I’m passionate about traveling, rock climbing and true human connections. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Social Communication from the University of Brasilia.

My personal work seeks to produce images of the unconscious and the world of dreams. It has been shown in over a dozen solo and collective exhibits in Brazil, Spain, USA and other countries and has been awarded by the PDN Photo Annual in NYC gaining good international recognition.

I’m in love with Barcelona, where I currently live. Its light, architecture and people offer endless photographic possibilities.


Why Barcelona for an outdoors photography course?

Barcelona, located in the eastern coast of Spain by the Mediterranean Sea, is the ideal destination for image hunters in search of contrasts. Beautiful historical monuments vs high tech buildings, hectic main streets vs calm beaches and marinas, traditional culture vs trendy fashion tendencies…

All this leads to great opportunities to develop your street photography and architectural photography skills, while enjoying some of the greatest Spanish tapas you’ve probably ever had. ;) Ah! And if you are into arts, stop doubting. Barcelona's cultural offer is huge and extremely inspiring. 

We will help you to capture the essence of Barcelona in pictures. Our classes are aimed at beginner, intermediate and advanced photographers. Try one of our photography courses and unveil the photographer in you.


Our prices

Prices are per class, not per person, so if you wanted to bring someone along, it would have no extra cost.

Obviously the more sessions you take, the more you'll learn. If you happen to be new to photography, with three sessions you'll get a really good base on both composition and the technical aspects to go on shooting on your own.
