+ More details


Are you traveling to Marrakech and interested in a photography workshops within an Arabic urban context? No matter what your experience in photography, if you are looking for a place to shoot photos outside of your comfort zone, consider joining one of my upcoming Marrakech photography workshops.

During three days we will walk together through the streets of the Souk (a kind of market maze) where we will be able to take photos of locals practising almost every kind of crafts (wood, iron, wool, ceramics, tannery etc…). We will also explore one of the most famous square in the world, that is Jamaa El Fna where a mixture of music, charmers snakes, smokes and ligths are all combined together to create a majestic atmosphere. Finally, we will contemplate through our lense the magnificient architecture that can be found at every corner and streets of the city as gates, porches, windows and mosaics are so well designed.

The Marrakech Photography Workshops are ideal for beginners, intermediate and professional Photographers.
These workshops are suited to the knowledge and interest of the person. If you are a beginner in photography, you will learn the basics of how to use your camera with Iso, shutter speed and aperture. If you are a professional or have already experience in street Photography, you will be delighted to know how to capture the daily life of the Souk and Medina of Marrakech.

This workshop lasts 3 days and 2 nights. The hotel where we will be staying is "Riad Al Rimal", located near Jemaa el Fnaa square. If the hotel is booked up we will be staying in another similar hotel.

  • I can highly recommend the photo trip with FV. He is a great photographer and knows the medina of Marrakech very well. My goal was to make portraits of people - and it worked. I couldn't have taken those pictures without FV. He was an incredible help and was able to connect to so many people. Anytime again, thank you FV!
