If I remember this correctly, which I am hoping I am, this was the second time that I did a modelphotoshoot abroad. The first photoshoot in Turkey gave me a bit of an appetite for doing this kind photoshoots, so as soon I we booked the trip to Barcelona I started looking for a modelagency to work with in Spain. I actually found a Swedish agency that had a few models in Spain, so I decided to give it a go. Both the model and the makeupartist lived around Barcelona, so they came up with the idea for the location.
We had decided on a place to meet, we were meeting up just above a metrostation. At the time I was not really that familiar with surroundings in Barcelona, so I just walked from the hotel to La Rambla, and I was going to catch a taxi from there. So I got in the taxi and told the driver the adress. But he said no and tried to kick me out of the car again. So turned around, looked at me, and pointed to a streetsign. I was standing just above the metrostation we were suppose to meet at.
The driver did not laugh at me, but he looked at me and shookhis head. I can only imagine what he was thinking! Do I have to tell you that I started using googlemaps after that, and I did my research a bit better.
So we met up, walked to this really cool public building that had a small garden with orange trees growing in the middle. But then again, whereever you are in Barcelona, you have cool buildings.
This was the first time that I did a photoshoot with this model, but we meet up again a year later when we revisited Barcelona. I'll tell you about that in a bit!
