Testimonials

‘I would wholeheartedly recommend this tour to anybody who wants to try to photograph the ‘real’ Marrakech and also experience the warmth and friendliness of the local people. I have taken  tours with other professional photographers in different cities but none has been as rewarding as this one.’ Valda Bailey

‘We have had many guides over the years, but our excursion with you, as our “photo-guide” was extraordinary. You took us to unique locations which we would never have found on our own. The fact that you knew some of the people personally was invaluable. As we walked from one “photo shoot” to another, your knowledge of the city and its history made our visit that much more enjoyable. Last but not least, your photo tips were great and will serve me well in the future. Thank you again for enhancing our trip to Marrakech.’ Barry & Sandi Cracower

‘Thank you for giving me such an amazing insight into the souks of Marrakech and some great memories – I had a great birthday!’ Pam Boddy

‘We very much enjoyed the course and would recommend it to anyone coming to Marrakech.’ Fergus & Kim
