We’ll smell exotic spices permeating the air as we wind our way through the labyrinths of old cities, finding doorways and faces, tanneries and metalworkers, tagines and tiles, weavings and pottery, countless varieties of olives and dried fruits, modern cars and heavily laden donkeys… oh the list goes on!

 

We’ll visit Tangier, Chefchaouen, Casablanca, Fes, Rabat, Meknes, and Marrakech… seeking those special places that appeal to photographers and give us a great sense of Morocco’s unique place in culture, history, and geography.

Some of that will come in the form of ornate entrances.

We will also find mosques and palaces.

Ancient buildings we can explore with our cameras.

Doorways

Tanneries

 

And, of course, the medinas and souks.

We have built and exciting extension, on which we’ll climb over the Atlas Mountains to dance up to the edge of the mighty Sahara.  We’ll venture out into the dunes on camel and foot, seeking the magic light of early and late day and the endless patterns created by sand and shadows.  We’ll sleep in tents, Bedouin style out in the dunes – in surprising comfort!

On that extenison, we’ll visit Ouarzazate, the Door of the Desert, that famous region where Lawrence of Arabia and a whole host of other films have been made.  Again, the ancient architecture in contrast with stark landscape will provide us with intriguing photography opportunities!

This is a great photography adventure for sharpening your skills of photographing people on the street – and artisans in the act of creating.  It will help you learn to simplify compositions in complex settings.  While you will want to “document” the exciting things you see, you’ll also want to create art from the rich array of colors and patterns that are woven into both everyday life and the special historical places we will visit.

We worked to sort through the many experiences we could offer you in Morocco to find those that present great photography opportunities.  While our guides will give us great insights into what we are seeing, they’ll also know that we come to create art and will work closely with Bob and Diane to facilitate photography opportunities.

Morocco is a kingdom, long allied with Europe and the United States.  It is the only country we have ever visited (including ours) where the people actively expound on the qualities of their leader and believe their government is working on their behalf.  It is a country proud of its religious freedoms and of the way every people who have passed through here through history have contributed to the creation of a very unique culture and society.

2017

 
Build the exposures that support the designs you intend in your images! Meet us a day early for a one day intense classroom workshop that will give you the skills to take control of your camera. We make it simple to move to manual exposure - and give you the tools to understand what you are doing and how to do it. Most people we teach never look back because it is easier than letting the wizards in the camera make your creative decisions for you. Then, we'll spend some time looking at our workflow - and how you can take great exposures and follow them to final images in Lightroom or Photoshop.
