Morocco - Marrakech One and a Half Day Photo Experience

+ More details

Description

‘…in the heart of the souks, babouches, leatherworkers, blacksmiths, wool dyers, there are plenty of opportunities for portraits of people at work… Next, the gnawa who stokes the furnace, heating the local hammam (or traditional steam bath); the tanjia’s are cooking as he makes tea and treats us to some traditional music. A brief stop at a master of the traditional art of stucco carving before the Criée Berbere, to view the carpet auction near the former slave market. Rays of light slant through gaps in the roof in the Souk; past piles of olives and the local delicacy, sheep head stew, we emerge in the soft afternoon light at the Djemaa el Fna to visit the dentist and his collection of extracted teeth…

  • SP and her team at clik-trip photo provide an excellent photo experience. SP lived in Marrakech for several years and knows the city inside & out. She takes you to all the back ally ways/ beautiful archways/ provides great feedback and helps w/your photography ensuring you get the photos you want. SP is friendly & very professional. Well worth the price to see and photograph Marrakech with someone who really knows what she is doing. Highly recommend SP or anyone that works with her.

  • A highlight of my journey throughout Morocco were the two days I spent with SP in Marrakesh. She is a gifted photographer, an inspirational instructor, and an incredibly knowledgable tour guide. I was even sent back to my hotel with a homework assignment. In addition to guiding me on the roads less traveled by tourists, she also introduced me to many locals who were more then happy to have their portraits taken. We spent quite some time standing at one of the entrances into the medina where I was able to photograph a variety of Moroccans from different walks of life as they entered or exited the city. We also spent time in a tannery capturing the scene as well as the different workmen. As we wondered through the medina and souk we often had to fight our way around the donkeys, carts, motorbikes and vehicles. One must keep one’s eyes wide open not only to capture all the special moments, but to live to tell about it. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with SP and hope to meet up with her in another part of the world.
