The Fez Photography Workshop takes place in the medieval medina in the darkly romantic and evocative city of Fez, Morocco.

The 2015  workshop will run for a full seven days from Saturday 9th May to end of Friday 16th May 2015 and include an overnight stay in Chefchaouen (the blue city in Rif Mts).

The workshops are run by The Compelling Image founder and Corbis photojournalist David Bathgate and John Horniblow photographer,  founder and editor in chief of Photojournale and is sponsored by FUJIFILM , the makers of XT1 , X Pro1 cameras and XF lens.

The workshop participants will receive specific instruction and get to use and compare the FUJIFILM cameras with there own equipment.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————–

The workshop will be an intense experience lasting seven days and will consist of  up 10 participants. The backdrop and the experience is Fez, undoubtedly the symbolic heart of Morocco; it’s intellectual and spiritual centre. Set in historical cross roads adjacent to the Rif and Atlas mountains Fez was the city of the great Imperial Moroccan dynasties. They have all left their indelible mark on the city while retaining its Arab identity. The medina, Fez el-Bali, is the largest living medieval city of the Arab world and the world’s largest pedestrian city. Its narrow, winding alleys and covered bazaars, intricate and detailed in their design, are awash with brilliant colors and buzzing with a lively pedestrian hubbub of the Farsi daily business and life. It’s truly a veritable seduction of all the senses. The colours shapes, sights, sounds and smells of this jostling city will envelope you and carry you on a magic carpet journey through the lively labyrinthine medina. From the dye makers, hills of spices, tanneries, old palaces of merchants and royal courtesans, artisan workshops, traditional tradesmen, remarkable architecture, muleteers and mule teams, to bustling souks, Fez, its secrets, and inhabitants provide an endless variety of interest and opportunity for photographers.

The Fez Photography Workshop , now in its third year,  is based in the beautiful and charming boutique riad, Dar Finn,  a traditional Moroccan style house, ideally located in the heart of the medina.  We are looking for a diverse range of participants, from the advanced amateur to the budding professional whose photography will benefit from this compelling workshop. The workshop will cover portfolio reviews, story development, individual photography projects, where we encourage group participation in looking, critiquing, developing ideas and image making. Each participant is expected to shoot a specific idea , story or theme and present it at the end of the workshop.

The week will start with an introductory dinner, will be punctuated by evening talks, an over night trip to Chefchaouen , and a side trip to Azrou , Volubilis and Moulay Idriss, or Seffrou.  The schedule will allow participants time to discover and photograph projects in Fez and will wrap up with a slideshow and presentation of the projects produced. The workshop promises to be memorable, creatively challenging and “experiential”.
