York - 'England's Eternal City'

Our York photography workshop will take place in November 2021 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.

York is a city of great beauty, enticing visitors with its timeless charm, which makes it a photographer’s dream. Our 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.

York Photography Workshop - England’s Eternal 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 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 while capturing the stark silhouette of St Mary’s Abbey, working with shallow depth of field while photographing autumn colours in the Museum Gardens or making abstract images while photographing architecture, street scenes and architecture. 

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.
