Behind the Scenes: Madrid Photographer Meetup


Welcome to this special edition blog series! Join our founders as they meet with Shoot My Travel photographers in Amsterdam, Madrid, Lisbon, and Paris. Create meaningful personal connections, share our love for photography, and continue growing as a collective. 

Let's head to Madrid!

Meeting with our photographer Biniam was a real dream come true. He was our first-ever photographer to join in Madrid, making this moment extra special and emotional for us.  We met early in the morning at the entrance of the Parque El Retiro where we got to live an SMT experience with him at this majestic park. 


We walked around for a bit to warm up and scouted the area. Biniam found the perfect stop in between a line of trees with falling red and orange leaves. He set up his equipment, with professional lights included (perks) and he directed us on how to pose and act with each other. The portraits came out stunning with the morning light and reflection of the leaves on the floor.


We walked to our second location just outside of the Palacio de Cristal and took some playful shots with an air vent we found alongside the building. 

After the session, Biniam suggested a lovely cafe just right outside the park to warm up and talk about the experience.

We had a lovely cup of warm chocolate and parted ways with our hearts full and ready for our next destination, the city build on seven hillsides!
