I'm Josep Bautista, travel and fashion photographer, and this is the journey that took me here.

Born in Barcelona, raised in trilingual education in Catalan, English, and Spanish. Graduated from college in Tourism Management, specialized as travel and tour leader, and obtained a Master’s Degree in Travel Journalism. During the college years, lived in Finland, Catalunya, and Japan, country that would become a second home between 2012 to 2014.

Photography was a hobby, important part of my travels, until in 2015 joined the team from Artisal Travel Photography, to create new itineraries and lead their photography expeditions to Japan.  The team of professional photographers triggered my own passion, and decided to move to Japan, where I graduated in fashion photography, to become a full time professional photographer.
