Morocco Photo Tours

As part of Morocco Photography Expeditions we offer our custom Morocco Photo Tours. The Morocco Photo Tours are shorter itineraries for all photographers visiting Morocco who would want either a short days tour in Casablanca, El Jadida, Fes, Marrakech , Rabat and Meknes, or custom itineraries up to week long tours – upon demand. Our photography tours are open to photographers of all skill levels and specialising in Digital Photography instruction , cultural immersion and “The Art of Seeing through the Photographers Eye”.

Our photography tours are custom tours,  which we can scale up and down depending on the needs of an individual or small groups. If you are traveling to any of the imperial cities or looking  something interesting to do in Casablanca, El Jadida or further then our photography tours might interest you.  The Morocco Photo Tours are designed for “The Art of Seeing through the Photographers Eye”,  instructing and inspiring participants on how to take best possible pictures. Detailing composition, camera techniques and light and coupling it with a deep knowledge of points or interest from an insider’s view of the subjects and secret places in Moroccan cities not commonly discussed in guide books or by tour companies. As with the Morocco Photography Expeditions , the photo tours are run by photographers for photographers – not just tour companies adding an activity.
