When you think of photographing architecture in Barcelona immediately Gaudi’s name come to your mind doubtless. But beside the worldwide famous examples of great architecture that Barcelona inherited by Gaudi and more Catalan modernism’s contemporary architects, you can still look for something unique in terms of shooting photos in town. The old Poblenou cemetery is among those places you should not miss when you think of shooting something different in Barcelona. At the begin of 19th century, an Italian architect was commissioned to design this cemetery which is located in the Poblenou district. The cemetery is rich of individual marble monuments and family’s mausolea as it was specifically designated to meet the aesthetic tastes and aspirations of the wealthy bourgeoise class and merchants of Barcelona. Famous local politicians, writers or musicians of that time are buried in this cemetery and many of their graves are interesting and impressive samples of work of art.
Talking about event photography in Barcelona, this Spanish city is more and more a remarkable destination for event photography. Every year, important international events are held in Barcelona like the Mobile Word Congress just to name one. Last week I was commissioned for an event photo shoot in Barcelona by a British event management company. It was the second time I was charged by them for an event photo session in Barcelona this year and I was pleased about that. Corporate event photography is quite challenging.
