A week may seem like a long time, but it’s not.

Professionals from different parts of the planet gathered here to offer you an experience that you really take advantage of.

All the presentations will be held in English. Nevertheless, there will be spanish speaker guides in every on-the-field workshop.
Keynote lectures, portfolio reviews...

Limited places, guaranteeing a top-level experience
Where is The Photo Week 2024 being held?
This year we have chosen the Spanish Cantabrian Coast to host The Photo Week. A truly mystical place, with beautiful seascapes, dramatic cliffs, changing lights and an incredible diversity of textures, forms and colors. A place with endless photographic options.
Special note deserves the Hotel where we will be hosted. Hotel Mirador de La Franca is a small traditional hotel located in a beautiful and peaceful beach in the middle of an area with many photographic locations just few minutes away in the regions of Asturias and Cantabria.
There you will have the opportunity to enjoy the famous gastronomic offer of these regions. Really delicious. We have prepared an offer that make happy any of the most demanding palates, including some special surprises.
Discover some of the places waiting for you
After visiting Lanzarote last year in our first edition, we have decided to offer a completely different location in our second edition in 2024.
The middle section of the Cantabrian Coast in Spain is backed by the Picos de Europa. A mountain chain that runs parallel to the coast just a few Kms away and reaching 2,650 meters of altitude. This creates spectacular places where the sea meets the mountains and also creates a very peculiar micro-climate in Spain with an evergreen landscape and exuberant vegetation.
We want to keep a few tricks up our sleeves, but we can show you some of the best- known places on this region
The agenda of the event will be focused on 10 photographic workshops on the ground (5 at sunrise and 5 at sunset to take advantage of the best light conditions for landscape photography) and a series of presentations, portfolio reviews and talks in the middle of the day on topics of photographic interest, such as methodology, technique, experiences, artistic vision, etc. There will also be other optional workshops such as night photography sessions.
The intermediate sessions will be plenary, however in the workshops, the attendees will be divided into groups of 10 photographers that will work simultaneously in different locations to reduce the impact on the environment and receive first-hand experience from the great masters who will accompany us. There will be a minimum of two masters per group (a ratio photographers/master of 5/1. This maximizes the quality of the experience. All participants will enjoy at least one photographic outing at sunrise and one at sunset with each one of the Masters.
We want everything to be perfect at our Photo Week. That’s why our team is working to make sure that every detail is covered. Soon you will be able to know more about what we are preparing for you. But, for now, here’s a little preview of what’s in store for us. Detailed agenda will be hand out to photographers previous to the event.
Welcome and gala dinner
The first day, on Tuesday upon arrival, the Hotel Mirador de la Franca will receive us with a welcome party. In there you can meet and chat in a relaxed way with the people who you will spend the rest of the week with.
We will celebrate a Gala Dinner to officially closed the meeting and for the award ceremony of the PWA contest.
For this edition we have a number of renowned national and international professionals, who will surely make you enjoy and learn in the most amusing and enjoyable way possible.
