DERRICK TAYLOR NEW YORK

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.

 

ABOUT MARRAKECH PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS

Welcome to my 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 comtemplate 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.
