My name is Louis Alarcon, I am a professional photographer specialized in organizing and directing photography tours (Spain and Cuba).

Basic equipment for modern architecture photography in Valencia

Each photographer has his own preferences as to the equipment to be used.

All types of photographers are welcome on my photo tours.

The vast majority of the photographers participating in this photo tour use.

 Reflex or mirowless camera

 24-70 mm 2.8 lens

 Wide angle lenses (20 mm -24 mm - 28 mm) 


Some of them also work with filters but there are also photographers who during part of the workshop prefer to work without a tripod in order to have more freedom of movement and capture less static images. 

International photographers offering Fine Art photo tour in Valencia

There are some photographers from other countries that offer their architectural photography workshops every 2 or 3 years in the city of Valencia.

Here I show you a couple of examples of these colleagues and their great work.

The perfect hotel close to the City of Arts

Probably the best hotel and certainly the closest to this architectural complex is the NH Las Artes Hotel.

It is definitely my recommendation if you are interested in this type of photographic workshop.

But, if you are a street photographer who wants to try other disciplines such as architectural photography, you might like to stay in the center of the city and occasionally visit La Ciudad de las Artes.

Here is a selection of hotels in the center of the city.
