Event info

Whitby is a gem of a seaside town nestled around a small harbour at the mouth of the River Esk on the North Yorkshire coast. With its sweeping piers, Victorian architecture, Benedictine abbey and cobbled side-streets, Whitby has attracted artists and photographers from around the world for over a hundred years! Due to its amazing Goth weekends held twice a year and one of the locations of the famous book, Dracula, Whitby has built a lovable reputation with a more sinister, dark side.

Setting your camera to monochrome and fully manual we will explore the many and varied techniques, tricks and tips in order to make sublime black and white images of this seaside town. The workshop will continue until 6 pm to allow some time for night-time images of the streets and alleyways - so don’t forget to bring a head-torch! 

We will find a nearby cafe for lunch (not included in the price of the workshop) but if you prefer to bring your own packed lunch please feel free. 

Please bring / wear:

  • Camera, charged batteries, memory card,
  • Tripod and graduated filters (1, 2 & 3 stop hard graduated filters) if you have them
  • If you wish to stay till after dark please bring a head torch.
  • Clothing suitable for the weather and time of year.

Please note:

  • This workshop would be suitable for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility but please notify Mark Reeves in advance to organise a suitable rendezvous point in the harbour
  • From the Whale Bone Arch meeting point, access to the harbour is via a gently sloping path via a few flights of stairs. Once in the harbour, the streets are generally level but there are cobbled areas to be aware of in certain sectors of the town.
  • There is a number of public toilets in Whitby and they can be expensive (up to 40p), so please bring some change with you.
  • Parking should be free at this time of year but please check nearby signposts for up to date information.
