Description of Morocco photography holiday

Join us on a photo-safari of Southern Morocco with adventurous travel photographer Toby Savage. Whether you’re master of your DSLR or lover of your compact camera, you are sure to return home with some great memories to add to your portfolio.

Highlights include:
- excellent tuition from experienced professional photographer
- explore Marrakech’s ancient medina
- travel by 4x4 over the stunning Atlas mountains
- visit the UNESCO World Heritage Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou
- cross the Sahara desert in style and stay in a nomad tent
- discover the delightful seaside town of Essouaria

Tuition:
This Moroccan adventure will be led by experienced photographer Toby Savage. We will have the opportunity to see and photograph some of Morocco’s spectacular scenery and discover the hidden Morocco. Under Toby’s guidance we will refine our photographic skills by learning about the elements of a good photograph and practising our camera techniques on a wide range of subjects including landscape, portraits, architecture and street photography. Peer feedback sessions will take place most evenings, and all participants will receive a one-to-one tutorial during the week with Toby on any aspect of their work.

Accommodation:
We will stay in a variety of comfortable riads and hotels, with one night under canvas in a bivouac of nomad tents.

The whole trip was something special, for me watching the sunset and sunrise in the middle of the Sahara and then photographing the Milky way late into the night has to be a highlight. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

It is important to minimise our impact on the local environment for the benefit of future generations.

While at our destination we aim to use local produce wherever possible. We recycle much of our waste and keep energy usage to a minimum.

Water conservation is always a key concern and sheets and towels are washed only at the clients’ request. We also ask all clients to conserve water by taking short showers instead of baths.

When we are out and about in the countryside we encourage participants to preserve the local flora and fauna by sticking to established paths and taking all litter home with them.

In the UK we maintain a small office which minimises our use of electricity and gas. We are web-based and all correspondence is sent to clients electronically. The small amount of paper we use in the office is recycled and we rely on natural light for most of the day.

People

Tourism is an important source of income for people in Morocco and the service industry accounts for over half of the country’s GDP. We work with local guides, tour operators and tourist offices to ensure that our visits are of benefit to the local economy, with opportunities for participants to purchase local products, eat at local restaurants and visit tourist attractions. For this trip, private transportation is supplied by local guides and operators who also assist us in finding the best locations to visit, while also benefiting the local economy.

Throughout this trip in Morocco we stay in friendly, family-run hotels that employ local staff and use fair employment practices. Our food and drink is sourced from local suppliers. We use a local agent in Morocco which employs local guides and drivers who are very familiar with the area and utilise their knowledge to help us engage with the community and ensure that we take care of our surroundings.

When visiting places of interest we divide into smaller groups to minimise our impact and increase the potential for meaningful interactions. We also encourage participants to ask permission from people first before taking photographs. Our visits also help to boost the local economy by giving participants the opportunity to buy locally-made products, for example silver in Taroudant or carved wooden goods in Essaouira. We use local guides who assist in communicating with local people where there is a language barrier, and we try to use their language wherever possible.
