Barcelona Photo Blog

This is where I write about my professional work, and the personal images and words about what I love shooting as an enthusiast.

  • Dar Roumana, a Gem Hidden in a Labyrinth

    Dar Roumana, a Gem Hidden in a Labyrinth

    Dar Roumana is within the Medina of Fez. I had been to Morocco one time before, also for work. That was in Casablanca, working for Harvard, you can read about it here. I wouldn’t say I am a fan of Casablanca, my disappointment compounded because I loved the film. The reality is that it’s very…

  • Photographing Warehouses and Workers for Bunzl

    These jobs came via a UK based agency called AAB Design. The first job was for Bunzl. Their warehouse and offices are near El Prat Airport, I was there to photograph the space and the workers. The second time was maybe 2 years later, near Cabrera de Mar. The company was Cemelin and Bunzl had recently…

  • Several different shoots over several days for NTTcom

    Several different shoots over several days for NTTcom

    I have done several sessions with NTTCom covering various different disciplines. Firstly there was the usual corporate headshot type of photography. On another day I was there for an in-house conference, where the top brass from the NTTCom at the Tokyo headquarters flew in to inspire the troops. This lasted half a day and then…

  • Pia and Her Family Do Barcelona With No Selfie-Sticks in Sight

    It happens occasionally that you get clients who don’t want to spend their day out using selfie-sticks, preferring instead, have someone take the photos for them. It is hard to work out the progression of photography in this regard; in the old days you went on holiday, took photos and sometimes got a stranger to…

  • Given the run around for a day at Barça FC

    Given the run around for a day at Barça FC

    Any photographer who gets a call to go and shoot with FC Barça is going to have an initial reaction of ‘yes!’ I reckon, even if they are FC Madrid fans. Any experienced photographer who is asked to do a shoot with a film crew, will most likely have a reaction something  like ’hmmm…’ Even…

  • A Jewellery Shoot, 3 Stories and a Lot of Drama

    A Jewellery Shoot, 3 Stories and a Lot of Drama

    These images from a jewellery project have gone up rather late in the day, the truth is the job was intense. I walked into the meeting as a photographer and left as the production manager. I should have been more suspicious. Basically they handed me a budget and then did the equivalent of running to the hills… taking the images…

  • Cuban Night Life and Cuban Night Light

    My third Cuban adventure. You can see images from the last visits here. The first thing I did, when I woke the first morning, was walk to the malecón as the sun came up. There were already fishermen perched on the wall, indifferent to the waves that lashed the defences. My first visit had been…

  • Wedding Day Photography? Maybe Not, but Everything Else…

    I don’t do much wedding day photography these days, which is a shame, I always found it suited me well. Thinking on my feet, dealing with the stress (the good kind), that makes you creative, was perfect for me. You can even find a long neglected website which, surprisingly, still works, not sure who is paying for it……

  • Istanbul and Instagram, Late to the Game but Catching Up

    Istanbul and Instagram is part 1 about my trip to the city and contains images shot on the iPhone. I have a list of places I want to go to and I have a friend who makes me go to them. The places tend to be the easier ones, the ones you could visit over a…

  • Inés Miró-Sans, co-founder Casa Bonay Hotel in Barcelona

    A Flying Visit To and Then Around Casa Bonay, Barcelona

    One of the first really interesting job of the year was a shoot at Casa Bonay, a boutique hotel recently opened by Inés Miró-Sans in the centre of Barcelona. Receiving an email that is a possible job is always a little like Christmas, when it comes from another country even more so, because apart from the appeal of…
