Morocco Photography Holiday October 12th-15th 2025

Morocco is the perfect destination to learn and develop your documentary, street and landscape photography skills. Join us on this exciting tour offering an array of photographic opportunities, from the bustling souks of Marrakech and busy fishing port of Essaouira, to quiet Berber villages in the Atlas Mountains and the rocky and barren Agafay Desert. In the heart of Marrakech’s walled old town, storytellers, acrobats, musicians and snake charmers vie for attention and make for wonderful photo opportunities. We will escort you on this three night photography holiday of a lifetime where you will visit the port to photograph fishermen and their boats and capture the sun setting over the Atlantic.
