We may be biased, but if there was an award for the most photogenic city in Europe, we think Barcelona would win, hands down. The colours, designs, viewpoints, architecture and artwork found in this incredible city are unparalleled, and make for a great opportunity to get that number one shot. For many people, particularly photographers, Instagram is a favourite social media platform, as it offers the opportunity to update followers by uploading photos and videos. So, when a photogenic city and a top photo-sharing platform come together, the results are definitely something worth talking about. Therefore, below you’ll find a list of our favourite Barcelona instagrammers… be sure to follow them for your regular fix of the Catalan capital!
For all things Barcelona, be sure to head to @dani_hm_bcn’s Instagram profile. From incredible architectural shots to beach views, this photographer has a great eye for getting that perfect shot. What’s more, with each photo comes a detailed description in the caption, explaining the components of the photo! Something that really stands out on this Instagram profile is the contrast between the different weather conditions in each photo, which can be seen in the skies. It’s not sunny every day in Barcelona, but this doesn’t mean photography should be off the cards, and @dani_hm_bcn portrays the city as being beautiful, no matter the weather!
A few things come to mind when thinking of Barcelona, such as labyrinth-like streets and quirky architecture. Without doubt, @pll.sandra captures the true essence of the city on her Instagram page, through wonderful shots of winding, narrow streets, often in Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella (Old Town). Another great element of her photographs are the city-dwellers that can be seen in the background and forefront, and according to her bio, she believes that people are the most beautiful scenery. We also love her captions, as she always wishes her followers a wonderful day, weekend etc – she seems lovely!
If architecture photography is your thing, be sure to check out @caldeh’s Instagram page! This photographer travels a lot, but is based in Barcelona and puts great effort into capturing the Catalan capital through a lens, and his efforts certainly don’t go unseen through his breathtaking photographs of the city. From Sagrada Família shots to Tibidabo views, we will never get bored of scrolling through this amazing Instagram profile. What’s more, there are also some great aerial-view shots of Barcelona on his Instagram profile, showing the city at a totally different perspective – go and see for yourself!
Another of our favourite Instagrammers is @zuckerandspice, a Barcelona-based travel photographer who captures the city in a variety of different ways. From aerial shots, to rooftop views and winding streets to architecture, this Instagram profile boasts more than a handful of incredible photographs of Barcelona!
If you’re looking for some inspiration on what to wear or where to take your next Instagram photo in Barcelona, then look no further. @emitaz is a Barcelona-based blogger who definitely knows how to use the city as her catwalk, and looks amazing while doing so! Her simple yet chic style makes all of her photos effortlessly beautiful and the filter she uses gives her Instagram profile a vintage style that looks quirky and cool.
Born in Barcelona, @ken4photo is an expert at where to take the best photos and offers a great gallery of snapshots taken in the Catalan capital. It’s safe to say that his primary focus is architecture photography, but he also shares some cool portrait shots taken around the city. All of his shots are truly unique and capture the true essence of Barcelona, and we fall in love with the city (again) every time he posts a new photo, making him a definite choice for a place on our list!
