Destination Morocco: Want to Join Me?

After a very successful photography tour and workshop in Peru this May, I’m excited to announce my next big photo adventure tour.  We’re going to Morocco!  Want to come along for the ride?

About Photography in Morocco

Without a doubt, Morocco is one of the most photogenic countries I’ve ever travelled.  It seems like there is a worthy photo around every corner.  From an architecture standpoint, you have the stunning mosques, exciting medinas, beautiful Berber villages, and impressive cities like “The Blue City” of Chefchaouen.  As far as nature is concerned, Morocco is incredibly varied.  You have prairies, gorges, high-altitude mountains, stunning coastlines, and the Sahara Desert.  And, of course, the people themselves make for fantastic subjects.

In Morocco, you’ll definitely fill your fare share of memory cards, but you’ll also have a great opportunity to dive deep into this country that’s so rich in culture and history.


How Can you Join?

Like the tour in Peru, I’m taking on a maximum of 12 participants.  We’re running things on a first-come first-serve basis, so sign up quickly as to not miss out!

You can sign up, and get much more in depth information on the tour/workshop here.

What’s the Itinerary?

The tour starts and ends in Marrakesh.  It begins on the 6th of February, 2016 and runs for 13 days.  I’ve included a very brief description of the tour below, but if you’d like the full in depth itinerary, you can download the pdf version of it here.

What is a Photography Tour/Workshop?

For those not familiar with my trips.  What I do is take your classic adventure tour and place a photography edge to it.  Moreover, not only is the trip set up with photography in mind, you’ll have 2 professional photographers along side providing instruction.  We offer time for 1-on-1 instruction, as well as short seminars, and on location training.

Whether you’re just picking up a camera for your first time, or you’ve been shooting images forever and want to build on your portfolio and skills, you’ll get a lot out of a trip like this.

  1. Unfortunately, I do not have the money nor the time to travel to Morocco at the moment. I would absolutely love to, though! It definitely is on my list of dream destinations for a variety of reasons. I hope you have fun as well as anyone who joins you! I look forward to hearing about the trip.

  2. I travelled through there over several weeks ago now and loved it. It’s a very photogenic country with its people and landscape. Indeed I got some of my more recent favourite travel photography from there. So if anyone is thinking about heading there, whether with Brendan’s tour or by themselves, I can highly recommend it.

    I know from your previous post that you will enjoy re-visiting for the photography as well Brendan.

  4. You’re quite right – Morocco is a most photogenic country with plenty of diverse landscapes to entrance. I travel frequently to Morocco, especially Marrakech as we have a restored town house in the medina of Marrakech that we operate as a luxury boutique hotel and each time I go I’m always delighted to find something new – a new design, new art gallery, new hotel, restaurant, cafe in the medina, new products – it’s a very creative place that attracts many artists and designers. You’ll see the results of this eclectic mix of East and West, modern and traditional, in new products on sale in the souks – and in the new architecture. There is even a nouvelle Moroccan cuisine – with tasty creations that look too beautiful to eat!
    I wish you much luck with your photography trip – I’m sure it will be awesome.
