Born and raised in Venezuela, self-taught photographer Francisco “Fran Goncalves” started taking photos with a disposable camera back when he was just a teenager. He then purchased one of the first digital point and shoot cameras before finally getting a nice DSLR professional camera.
His hobby became his profession more than 10 years ago. In 2010, he changed the Caribbean for the Mediterranean and moved to the beautiful city of Barcelona, where he has worked as a correspondent photographer for some of the most important Scandinavian newspapers like Politiken or Klassekampen.
Fran is also a Getty Images contributor and has published photos all over the world, including Lonely Planet books and Time magazine. Specialized in documentary photography, he also enjoys travel photography and street photo… specially in Barcelona, a city that he knows like the palm of his hand! And the best part is that he loves to share all his knowledge and show the off the beaten track spots of the beautiful Catalan capital through photography tours and classes!
