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.
Our Masterclass series consists of a combination of slideshow presentations, along with plenty of 1-1 mentoring as you explore the cobbled streets and alleyways looking to develop your own perspective and style. The Masterclass is all about encouraging and progressing your own photography, both in the classroom and with us in the field.

Marcus and James have been working together for over 20 years, and have travelled all over the world on photo trips and assignments. It was while journeying through Spain around 10 years ago (after taking a wrong turn) that Marcus discovered Albarracín. He only stayed for one night that time, but the place has been playing on his mind every since and after a return visit last year, we’ve given the town a big thumbs-up as an excellent photo workshop location.
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.
