Why book this photo tour in Spain ?
✔ It´s a photo tour "on demand", 1 day in Valencia and its surroundings on the dates that interest you. I do not mix groups (only in Fallas festivities, in March) , it is just for you, your family or friends.
✔ It is a comfortable trip in which you will discover a city and its most special and hidden places.
✔ You can also come with your family, we take photos for 5 - 6 hours a day ( 3 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the afternoon) the rest of the time you have free time to relax and go your own way.
✔ I know the expectations of a traveller-photographer when travelling to a new country.

Why will you love Valencia?
✔ Valencia is a mediterranean paradise, safe, fun, with good food, drinks and fantastic light.
✔ Valencians have an open personality and accept to be photographed.
✔ Also the region has many riches, such as its architecture (old and new), nature, festivities, culture, gastronomy, etc.
Valencia offers a wide range of styles, from the modern mega-constructions of the Oceanographic Park and the City of Arts and Sciences, through styles such as Arab, Baroque, Gothic, avant-garde and modernist.
We are in the centre of the Mediterranean culture, the markets are part of the daily life of the Valencians, full of colour and natural products.
These products will be the raw material to create a great variety of recipes that we will be able to taste in bars and restaurants.
We cannot forget the architecture of these markets, some of them are authentic works of art.
15 km from Valencia we have the Albufera, a natural environment, rice fields, agricultural culture, a real oasis for landscape and bird photographers.
Personally I am also very interested in the anthropological part. Taking pictures of the people and traditions of this area is one of my favorite photographic disciplines.
The festival that all Valencians look forward to throughout the year: sculptures, music, concerts, fireworks and lots of excitement are the characteristics of these regional festivals that attract thousands of travelers to Valencia.
It is very difficult to describe what the Fallas are, the best thing to do is to come and enjoy these 4 spectacular days.
Valencia is not the birthplace of flamenco in Spain but it has good singers, musicians and dancers, many of them of gypsy ethnicity, who keep their musical traditions alive.
The festive character of the Valencians has created many festivals and traditions, the most famous of which are the Fallas, but let's not forget some others that we will also discover with our cameras and smart phones.
✔ My photo tours in Spain are designed as cultural photo walks in the destination, all levels of photography are welcome, I adapt to the photographic level of the traveler: no matter the camera, the age or the knowledge you have, "the less you know, the more you will learn".
✔ You can schedule a long vacation in Spain and spend 1 day in Valencia where I will help you to understand and photograph the city, also.
✔ If you live in Europe you can make a getaway, there are many flights that arrive directly to Valencia airport, I guarantee you will enjoy the city, and you will come back with good photos and many vitamins, those of the Mediterranean sun and our orange juices.
