Place your Instagrams were taken? Barcelona

Can you sum up Barcelona? Barcelona is a place where the sun is always shining. It’s a slow paced but happening city on the Mediterranean Sea with a mix of old and new where nature vibes are easily accessible.

Barcelona is a unique city that runs at its own pace. It is a city where you can enjoy a bit of everything, a good combination of city life and also the benefits of the surrounding beaches and nature. It has has good weather most of the year. People are generally pretty relaxed sometimes too relaxed (don’t expect quick service or for shops to even open on time) but it is generally a nice mellow vibe and a great place to live for anyone looking for the sun and sea while wanting to stay in a city.

What is a perfect day in Barcelona? Sun, sea, nature, good people, good music, and a little skateboarding

If your Barcelona was a person who would it be? Garfield, pretty lazy and not too fussed about anything and only wants to work or waste energy when it’s really needed.

How long have you been using Instagram? since 2012 I think

Do you shoot with your phone or other cameras? Both, except lately I kind of just post extra photographs from my camera that I have from trips or projects that I do.

What is your editing process? I don’t edit much just tweak the levels and crop when needed.

Has Instagram affected how you shoot? Not really, but I have discovered amazing photographers through Instagram that inspire me so I guess that affects the way I shoot.

Can you give a couple tips to aspiring Instagram photographers? Just keep things real and utilize the opportunity to share moments, people places, cultures and ideas. Not as a way to brag or to put others down.

Who are your three favorite Instagrammers? There are a lot of good ones, I love the photos of @yvesvernin, @graciela_magnoni, @olivierthao. They have really interesting use of colour and composition.

Best place to eat:


Best place to drink:

There are too many great local places to drink to name just one.

Best outdoor activity:

skateboarding and swimming

Must do:

Explore all the forested hills that are located around the city. (That aren’t Parc Guell.)

Local tip:

Utilize the regional train that runs up the coastline, you can be relaxing at better and more empty beaches in the same amount of time it takes to walk or catch the metro to one of the city beaches.
