Chefchaouen blue town, Morocco photo workshop
We will spend two and a half days in the silky sand dunes of the Sahara. If you have never seen the stars in the desert, the Sahara is worth visiting just for this unforgettable view and a great opportunity to capture it away from the lights of the cities, but we will also see and photograph camels walking though the desert at sunrise and sunset, and the most adventurous ones will be able to ride them.

We will visit authentic Essaouira, where fishermen bring their catch from the Atlantic in the early morning, take photos of the old Portuguese fort and famous fishing boats in the harbor. Then we'll move on to Marrakesh with its busy bazaars, squares and mosques. We will pass through the mountains of the High Atlas, see snow-covered mountain peaks over 4,000 meters and beautiful blossoming valleys, and we will also visit the Berber fortress built of clay, and photograph it at dawn and sunset.
