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!
