Mystery of Morocco: A Photographic and Cultural Adventure
with John Weiss
April 21 - May 3, 2011

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Morocco is a beautiful country filled with friendly people. We will have a cordial welcome in this land with its irresistible allure and warm hospitality. We begin in Casablanca (“Play it again, Sam.”), moving on to Fes, this ancient city, with its spectacular medina— where time seems to have stood still and photographs beckon around every corner. You will see veiled women and laughing children. We will visit centuries-old villages and craftsmen’s workshops, sharing experiences and sipping mint tea, symbol of the warm, sincere Moroccan generosity.

Then imagine yourself spending a peaceful night in the Sahara desert, being awakened in the dark of the morning by a Berber tribesman, mounting a camel, and, overlooking the ancient dunes, welcoming in a breathtaking Saharan sunrise.

These are just some of the remarkable adventures awaiting you. Next, we invite you to the city of drama, Marrakech, with its ramparts and colorful markets. We will visit the famous Djemaa el-Fna Square, perhaps the greatest open-air spectacle in the world. Here we’ll see the colors and feel the pulse of Morocco. Traveling back in time, we’ll see snake charmers, magicians, acrobats, dancers and storytellers.

Both tours feature two extensive group critiques on location, as well as individual meetings with John. Please join workshop leader, John Weiss, for this incredible cultural and photographic adventure. Since this amazing tour has sold out for the last five years, we're added a second tour for 2011.

This tour features two extensive group critiques, as well as individual meetings with John.
