The name of Albarracín may not sound familiar, but this is one of the many appeals to this medieval town which has somehow stayed well under the tourist radar.
Located in central Spain, half way between Madrid and Valencia, this is a town where time has seemingly stood still for hundreds of years.
Venturing through the quaint twisting cobbled lanes and alleyways offers photo opportunities at every turn. The lack of traffic and other modern eyesores allow timeless images to be captured with ease. We’ll be spending three nights based in the centre of town, where photo opportunities start from right outside the hotel door.
“The opportunities were endless and I could have easily stayed another week.”
This trip is designed to be relaxing yet productive. The town is small enough to walk around in just a couple of hours and it won’t be long before you have your bearings.
We will provide plenty of 1-to-1 mentoring as you explore the cobbled streets and alleyways looking to develop your own perspective and style. This trip is all about encouraging and progressing your own photography, both in theory and in the field.
Meet your hosts...
Harry is the pro photographer on this year's trip and has years of experience leading our photo holidays around the world. He will be providing 1-1 tuition as well as helping to review your photos to see what you can improve on for your next attempt.
He will be joined on this trip by Ruth, our Photography Online host. Although not a pro photographer, this kind of street and architectural environment is what fires her up and ignites her passion for taking photos. Ruth’s keen eye for detail will allow her to point out subjects which may not be immediately obvious.
The town was like an authentic movie set which I never tired of exploring. Thank you so much for introducing this hidden gem to me.
The changing light and the way it played between the terracotta buildings meant I couldn’t stop taking photos. What an amazing place.
I can’t think of a better location to learn photography. Albarracín is the perfect classroom to practice a whole range of skills.
