In October 2020 we ran the first of our 7 nights High Atlas and desert Swiss group photo tours, which was followed up by another one last month. Working in collaboration with Swiss Photo Club, enthusiastic photographers arrived in Marrakesh the morning of the tour start and immediately departed for the Atlas Mountains. Crossing over after lunch we arrived in the valleys approaching Ait Benhaddou, bathed in late afternoon light, the crumbling mud Ksars perched above a snaking river valley. In all 7 nights staying in a range of charming small hotels including a luxury desert camp, covering portraits, street photography, night-sky and well as camel trains and of course landscape photography as we made our way down to the desert and back. Above all the small group ethos encourages a shared experience making Swiss group photo tours an especially memorable one. Here’s what Patricia and Gary had to say about it.

“I enjoyed this photo tour so much!! I was very lucky having you all in this trip!! Darren, thanks for the interesting journey and for your patience with me, asking always for the setting recommendations :-). Patricia.”

“The tour was fantastic, thank you Darren! It was very interesting to see all the different locations in Morocco. I felt I learned from everyone in the group.” Gary.
