Your Guided Morocco Photography Holiday

Join us on this exciting guided holiday to Morocco. Offering an array of photographic opportunities, from the impressive mosques and markets of Marrakech to the busy fishing port of Essaouira and the rocky, barren Agafay Desert, Morocco is the perfect destination to learn and develop your documentary, street and landscape photography skills. On this holiday, we’ll not only get to experience Moroccan culture through a camera's lens, but also through traditional Moroccan food and live music, as well as an exhilarating camel ride across the dunes. We’ll be accompanied on our journey by Stewart Kenny, an award-winning fine art landscape photographer, plus an additional tutor from the Dublin Photography School. Throughout the holiday, they’ll provide tutorials, demonstrations and tips to our small group, so you get the most out of the images you capture.
