Few places are more deserving of a photographic adventure than Morocco. The original Berber tribes—along with Phoenicians, Romans, Portuguese, Spanish, and French—have all contributed to the cultural heritage of modern Morocco, leaving in their paths one of the world’s most beautiful and dynamic countries. All of this in a country that rises out of the Atlantic and Mediterranean to the snow covered peaks of the Atlas Mountains, stretching beyond to the Sahara.

This workshop brings you twelve days photographing the best Morocco has to offer. Beginning in Fèz, the oldest of the imperial cities, we explore the labyrinthine medina, souqs, tanneries, and the historic Jewish Quarter. Continuing south, we travel through the cedar forests of the Atlas Mountains, eventually following the palm-fringed villages of the Ziz River valley to the northern edge of the Sahara. We take in the beauty of the desert in traditional style, traveling by camel and camping under the dunes. The journey continues through the “Valley of 1,000 Casbahs” where palm oases, rose plantations, and terraced fields surround the citadels of the Dàdes Valley.

We proceed back into the High Atlas, stopping at the ancient fortified village of Aït Benhaddou. After exploring the fabled medina of Marrakech, our adventure ends on the Atlantic coast where we photograph along the bustling harbor and amongst the white plastered walls of Essaouira.

All along the way you play a dynamic role in determining your goals for the workshop, and Sean works with you to develop custom-tailored assignments to match these goals. The workshop includes constructive review sessions of your work in progress.

PLEASE NOTE: Participants should arrive in Fèz on November 2nd; the workshop begins early on the morning of November 3. This workshop ends in Marrakech; you should plan to fly out on November 15.
