High Resolution, High Quality Stock Images of Local and Expat Lifestyle in Spain
The possibilities are endless for stock photography of Spanish lifestyle or life in Spain.
Having lived in Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands and Marbella, Nueva Andalucia and Estepona on the mainland Costa Del Sol, I have accumulated a large and varied library of the Spanish lifestyle, culture and people of Spain.
The Spanish lifestyle is quite unique to Europe and has a real laid back approach with early starts, lazy lunches and social evenings that go late into the night. European cuisine and dining has a really healthy aspect to it with plenty of fruit, oils and fish to keep the locals looking healthy.
Northern Europeans have over the past few decades, integrated fully into the Spanish way of life in all parts of Spain from Madrid to Barcelona and of course the Rock of Gibraltar in the far south. In fact, the Costa del Sol in Andalucia has one of the largest ex-pat communities in Europe consisting of nationals from all around Europe including Germany, France, England, Poland, The Netherlands and beyond.
The most obvious and apparent reason for anyone choosing to live in Spain is the climate…the sun! With many days of the year seeing bright sunny days with blue skies, it is easy to see why people choose to live and work in this country. For many people, especially retirees, the long, warm and sunny days give one a more positive and happy outlook on life.
Whether you need images to promote living in Spain and the Costa del Sol or simply to report on the constant influx of tourists and expats starting a new life here, we intend to eventually cover all angles.
The images below include Spanish Fiestas, beach life in Spain, sporting activities, holidays and vacations, an expats life, tradition, and many more. As well as the images below, please see our beach and sports section for more stock photography of Spanish lifestyle.
