“Eye-opening and inspiring”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We were so fortunate to be able to make this tour. When we first contacted Laurie he was not available on any of the days of our stay in Barcelona. Luckily, when we were already on the way to Spain, his schedule changed so we could eventually fulfill our plan on a beautiful Sunday morning. The photo adventure started right by our hotel, from where we proceeded to visit a bunch of intriguing places that a run-of-the-mill tourist would probably never go to. The walk was both eye-opening and inspiring. We hope that the creative spark it ignited will find its way into all the photos we will be taking in the future!

PS. Laurie does also similar tours in Israel -- if we ever visit there, a photo treat with him would top the list of things to do.

“Outstanding photography tour”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

My wife and I planned a trip to Barcelona and what better way to create memories than with photographs. We booked a 6 hour afternoon/evening tour with Laurie and it was time well spent. Laurie is knowledgeable and a people person, so easy for him to express ideas and techniques. We took some amazing shots in different locations and that set us up for the cruise that we were about to take through Italy. Laurie even recommended a Tapas bar for my wife and I to end the evening and even went out of his way to take us there and make sure we knew how to get back to our Hotel afterwards. Highly recommend spending time with Laurie.

He is not only a great guy but a fellow that is very keen to share his knowledge of places and techniques to get the best shots. A true master photographer with a great eye for things that other miss.Just look at his web shots. A definite must for any photographer..... worth every cent.

“Memorable Barcelona photo tour!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

I was in contact with Laurie from Barcelona photography tours about 1 month before my trip. He was really helpful in helping me to decide which equipment to bring, as I like to travel light and have a large collection of lenses to choose from.
Upon meeting him, I was suprised at how easy it was to chat with him - he has a knack of engaging you at your level, while showing you how to think outside the box. He really does have a great eye for the unusual, and that helped me to think about how to create more interesting images without being too cliche. I thought I was a reasonably accomplished photographer, but his method of teaching really did help me become more choosy about my composition & technique.
He even managed to fit in a visit to the Gracia fiesta which was awesome!
Thank you Laurie for a memorable photographic experience in Barcelona.
