Pau Buscató is a street photographer from Barcelona, currently based in Oslo (Norway). He studied architecture but after some years of practice abandoned his career to focus exclusively on photography. He is a member of the international photography collective Burn my Eye.

Pau feels uncomfortable writing about himself in third person, but ‘you gotta do what you gotta do’.

He has been lucky to receive some awards at well-known international Street Photography festivals, and to have his photos exhibited around the world and widely published in online and print media, including the noted “100 Great Street Photographs” by renowned photographer David Gibson.
He recently was part of the judging panel at the London Street Photography Festival, and had his first solo exhibition at ‘Space Place’ gallery in Nizhny Tagil (Russia; Oct’17). He is currently preparing his next solo exhibit at ‘Fotografiens Hus’ gallery in Oslo.

    The workshop was intensive and I especially liked the photo critique session. I attended the workshop right before my trip to photograph Cuba so it opened up new paths and ways of seeing.

    I highly recommend this workshop if you are interested in street photography. I’d totally assist this workshop again, enough said!!

    Best of luck!

    The workshops schedule that Pau provided fitted perfectly to have an intensive and inspiring street photography experience in Barcelona! There are basically two parts that the workshop consists of: Theory & practice.

    The evening theory lessons helped me getting really insightful reviews on my pictures – a seclection of my portfolio as well as the pictures I have taken during the workshop. We had very good discussions about composition, intent & cropping…;-))
    Besides the picture reviews, Pau also talks about the general development of street photography as well as his own way of becoming a street photographer and how he developed his unique style.

    There’s a lot of talks and discussions during the theory part, but also when out shooting. Pau gives you “on the scene” tips on how to capture a strong picture with intent, best fitting camera settings and answers all other questions that you might have. He walked us to the most interesting areas for street photography in Barcelona (and also to some secret traditional catalan restaurant with great regional food). The atmosphere within the group was always great, while everyone was free to shoot how he felt most comfortable (discovering a spot with a group of several persons or walking highly concentrated on your own…).

    My summary:
    If there was a 1-week workshop being given by Pau anywhere in the world, I’d go ;-))

    It was an extraordinary experience, because:

    1. Pau is a great guy: sensitive, humble, sense of humor….quite the opposite of most of the greats artists
    2. It’s an intensive weekend (we worked for almost 26 hours).
    3. Got deep into my portfolio. With a very constructive critique I have the keys to raise my photos to the next level.

    Nice city, great food, lovely weather, led by one of the most important Street Photographers. What else can you ask for!!!

    Had the pleasure to attend the workshop on November ’17.
    The workshop was really well structured starting with a presentation of Pau´s experience and how he became a street photographer, along with suggestions on different ways to view the scene with a different eye. The first day started with a review of my previous work, and the feedback really helped me be more critical of my work. The photowalks on the next days were really helpful as Pau gave me loads of tips on how to work the scene and how to seek that SHOT that makes the difference. At the end of each photowalk there’s been a review on each participant work and that for me was the best part, as said before it was really inspiring and gave me new ideas to improve, inspiration and pushed me to come back the next days on my own with a fresh eye. At the end of the last day, Pau showed us a “behind the scene” presentation, how he achieved to get his best shots explaining the story behind each shot. Overall the 3 days were a full immersion, we even ended the workshop a few hours later than expected and Pau didn´t mind at all staying longer.

    Last but not least, the workshop was really fun and we got along together really well, meeting earlier for breakfast, having lunch together, going for a beer afterwards, I really felt I knew Pau and the group for a long time.

    I would indeed repeat without hesitation. Thanks, Pau!

    As this was my first photography workshop dedicated to street, and knowing the level of patience, awareness, and intensity required to capture good street images, I was a little concerned how the logistics of it all might work in reality. It’s already incredibly difficult to be subtle and remain undetected on the streets when you’re alone with your camera, imagine what it’s like with six other like-minded photographers, all stalking the same space. Thinking you’re going to come out with a world class Pau Buscató level image at the end of the weekend would be wrong, perhaps you will if you’re lucky, but given that this type of photography is about 99.9% failure (to quote Alex Webb), the chances are you won’t. But all that doesn’t matter. Over the weekend you will get ample chance to ask Pau anything about his work and he holds absolutely nothing back. This kind of willingness to share information is gold and worth far more than snapping that killer shot. You’ll be better prepared and have plenty of time for that killer shot afterwards. Take the time to learn and speak with Pau. He will guide you through camera settings, gear, things to look out for on the streets, things to avoid (cliché’s etc), and most importantly the kind of mind-set and patience levels required to be, not just a good street photographer, but a great street photographer. He’s not going to favourably critique your images just to please you; he is honest and constructive. It’s important that we are able to put our ego’s to one side and actually learn the difference between making a good image and making a great image, from someone who actually knows what they are talking about. A great self-critiquing tip from Pau that I personally took great benefit from, is to simply ask “can this image be repeated easily? Can I take my camera and take the exact same shot tomorrow?” This simple question helped me to instantly up my game.

    On a more personal level, Pau is a friendly, approachable guy. You certainly won’t feel uncomfortable talking to him.

    The workshop is a great opportunity to get into Pau’s mind and learn new tricks. I do suggest to do this learning experience to all whom desire to extend their graphic vision on the street.

    I would say that is not only for street photographers but to all curious who want to get inspired by the Street photography language differently.

    Barcelona is also a great environment, energic city full of variations between modern and antique.
    Also as a team we had a great social time all together. Always hangry on the street but hungry on the table.

    What an enthusiast. He definitely has his sights on the details that are worth seeing them live and being a part of it. Even though I know that I will never develop his stubborn obsession, he has influenced me to develop my own style. And Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities for such a workshop. Don’t miss it! // Bjørn Kaas, Hamburg / GER
