Our York photography workshop 'England's Eternal City' will take place in November with Astrid McGechan. Founded by the Romans, later called Jórvík by the Vikings, York has played an important role in England’s history for close to 2000 years. It is a city of great beauty, enticing visitors with its timeless charm, which makes it a photographer’s dream. The workshop will be based in the medieval centre, where we can best appreciate York’s rich and colourful character. Short strolls will take us down narrow streets, little changed since the Middle Ages, and some of the easily missed Snickelways.
Astrid looks forward to welcoming you to England’s 'Eternal City', for a day of photographic exploration and personal development. She will help you develop your technical skills and refine your vision to capture images you will treasure.

York Photography Workshop - York Landscape & City Photography
Founded by the Romans, later called Jórvík by the Vikings, York has played an important role in England’s history for close to 2000 years. It is a city of great beauty, enticing visitors with its timeless charm, which makes it a photographer’s dream. Our York photography workshop will be based in the medieval centre, where we can best appreciate York’s rich and colourful character. Short strolls will take us down narrow streets, little changed since the Middle Ages, and some of the easily missed Snickelways.
The most prominent building within the city walls is York Minster, seat of the Archbishop of York, and one of the largest gothic cathedrals in Europe. The West Window and the Great East Window, both constructed in the 14th/15th centuries, form the largest expanse of medieval stained glass in the world.
The variety of subject matter in York will give us ample opportunity to utilise a range of techniques and approaches, be it shooting in black & white, capturing the last of the autumn colours in the Museum Gardens, working with shallow depth of field, abstract, street or architectural photography.
Inside the Minster, we will spend time exploring the fine details of this magnificent building. With light levels naturally lower inside, the cathedral provides the perfect setting to try out some alternative techniques, such as ICM (intentional camera movement) and producing multiple exposures.
This workshop will be tutored by Astrid McGechan, who looks forward to welcoming you to York, England’s “Eternal City”, for a day of photographic exploration and personal development. Astrid will help you develop your technical skills and refine your vision to capture images you will treasure.
The workshop will run from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
Inspirational comments and thoughts from Astrid and Charlie along with 1:1 feedback and input. Group atmosphere was relaxed, warm and friendly with useful tips shared and traded. All in all perfect soul food for nourishing creativity.
Another very enjoyable and informative workshop.The tutors were very encouraging and supportive in developing my photographic skills and knowledge. Thank you.
An excellent day’s photography in York in the company of Charlie and Astrid, both of whom freely shared their photographic philosophy, together with their tips and advice on how to make the most of the many image opportunities afforded by this beautiful city, whether in the Museum Gardens, the Minster, the famous Shambles, or the many hidden “snickelways”. The sun even shone, in particular bathing the Minster in a warm late afternoon glow. My first “Light and Land” experience but I very much doubt that it will be my last.
1 to 1 at times with Charlie and Astrid, listened and learned. The weather was excellent so this greatly helped and the locations were good - park, churches, the Minster inside and outside, when the light was good (direction). Not sure about lunch would have liked a warm meal - a bowl of soup and bread esp as it was cold. Maybe that should be extra in a restaurant if people want it. If it had been a hot day then cool drinks somewhere.
Introductions made us feel welcome and relaxed. The two instructors gave us their time willingly, even sought us out! Good humour all round and challenging questions about - why that? what part? Have you thought about...? Astrid's complete faith in the passage of sunlight was impressive! Well organised but not rushed and we were allowed time to explore an area before we moved on. I couldn't have asked for more from a one day course. Brilliant!
