SOME REVIEWS ABOUT THIS TOUR:
Thomas Humphries: "This was a great tour indeed. The people of Marrakech are not as willing to have their photo taken as much as other counties I have visited so i thought a guide would be a great idea. Fernando was great, he new his way around, was helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend using him!
I wanted to photograph people so we strolled around the markets and he spoke to the locals regarding me photographing them. He was a massive help and got me plenty of willing victims.
I have only had chance to edit one image so far but have attached it."

Derrick Taylor: "My trip to Morocco was memorable and simply picture perfect thanks to Fernando! I signed up for his private photography walking tours in both Fez and Marrakech and my photos turned out amazing. Not only did he teach me about using my new Canon 6D, he taught me about interacting with locals so I can land that perfect portrait each time. He's got a fantastic eye for light and architecture as well. When most people get lost in the souks, Fernando knew his way around and knew all of the great places to find interesting subjects. He was knowledgable about culture, customs and he speaks both French and Arabic fluently. I'm forever grateful for Fernando's kindness and hospitality. He made himself available to me throughout my stay in Morocco in case I had any questions or concerns. His photography expertise goes without saying. My photos are proof he can teach anyone to be great."

  • I can highly recommend the photo trip with Fernando. 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 Fernando. He was an incredible help and was able to connect to so many people. Anytime again, thank you Fernando!
