Barkelona | Part 1

So some of you might know I was on a trip of a life time earlier this year. Not a trip walking the Great Wall of China or driving up Route 66 or seeing the Northern Lights - even so this is all on my Bucket List. No it was Barkelona - An out of this World Pet Photography Retreat. 

Going back to October last year, an email arrived in my inbox "Are you ready for Barkelona?" Very excited I clicked on it and wow, reading everything about it, I was so ready. Ready meeting other awesome professional Dog Photographers and learning from three of the World BEST Dog Photographers - Kaylee, Charlotte and Nicole! These three redesigned and reinvented the meaning of Dog Photography, getting away from the boring studio shots with a black & white background and showing photos of dogs filled with love and life, running and exploring the world! 

And the name Barkelona may gives it away to where the retreat was ... yes Barcelona in Spain :) So after month of waiting and and with all our excitement growing daily, April 2016 came, I packed my bag and camera and jumped on a jet plane to Barkelona :) Not to forget, I finally got to meet my photography travel buddy Josie at the airport. She is a fellow & awesome Pet Photographer and after chatting on FB for ages, we finally met and didn't stop chatting for 4 days! 

2h later we arrived in Barcelona and here we met Cat (fellow crazy coloured hair gal) and her partner Michael. Together we jumped in a Taxi and thank's to Josie's map on Google and our non english speaking taxi driver, we went up the hills and tried to find our 11th century villa in a tiny village in the middle of the night. Easy :p

The next day we finally got to meet everyone and of course meeting our mentors Nicole, Charlotte and Kaylee and our dog trainer Ingrid and her two dogs. It was so amazing to chat to everyone, get to know their life stories and why they loved Pet Photography as much as we do. Our group was filled with wonderful lovely people from all over the globe, America, Australia, New Zealand, UK and Europe. Everyone with such a huge talent and hunger, creating beautiful photos and telling the story of peoples dogs and cats and I can not wait to see where everyone's path will take them. 

And what can I say about our next days in the villa. Filled with lots of laughter, sharing stories, talking business, lots of tears over sad and happy stories, finding cats in the village, cuddling and photographing dogs and yes eating amazing food. Surrounded by the most amazing people in the world, Barkelona was one of the most inspiring and fun filled trips in my life. 

But for now, here are some of the photos from my Barkelona :) Enjoy.
