Day 2
AM: Our first morning we will take a walk through lesser visited squares and side streets en route to the ornate nearby palace. Each room, of the palace, is lavishly decorated with painted panels; intricate stucco work; zellij, mosaic style, tiling and carved cedar wood. We will amble back to the Riad via the narrow alleyways of the old medina.

PM: Late afternoon will find us outside the city's main place of worship capturing its beauty as the sun starts to set. You cannot avoid to be swept along by the atmosphere as we become engulfed by the sounds of the call to prayer.

From here we will visit the Musee d' Marrakech and then head to the Museum of Photography with it's collection of historic photographs of Morocco, ending up on the rooftop for refreshments.

This square is full of life, writhing with snake charmers, dancers, musicians and acrobats. We will head to a viewpoint for a sunset shoot. As dusk falls the scene becomes increasingly atmospheric as street food vendors generate smoke from their grills whilst providing a delicious array of food and Moroccan mint tea.

TUITION

During every photo tour we have time for reviews of your photography.

Most of your tuition will occur behind your lens out on location, with advice tailored to your own individual needs, taking your photography to another level by truly mastering your camera and understanding the craft of photography.

This travel photography holiday is about what you see, and developing your own unique style, nurturing your creativity.
We will also go over black and white photography techniques during the tour.

I will encourage you to develop an eye for the light and an appreciation of how it steeps a scene with atmosphere by getting you to the best locations for the best light.
"Thanks very much for all your advice in Morocco, I'm really pleased with the selection of photos that I've come home with and I'm ready to get editing!"
Kate, London
