If the weather in the UK doesn’t offer too many prospects at Xmas time then there’s the option of fleeing to sunny Morocco for a photography holiday in Essaouira. July’s week of photography these past 7 days produced 9 excellent galleries. Jo, Eloise and Karen (her phone opportunity was well spotted) learnt a lot judging by their photos and came up with some superb images of people and locations here in Essaouira. After a week’s sun and good food I think they’ll be quietly missing the town’s Medina and ambience. Things are calm here in Morocco despite the upheavals of the region and in Essaouira events rarely stir the town’s laid back atmosphere. During their week we ran workshops: in how to use their digital SLR, understanding and controlling exposure using histograms; finding and framing for abstract images; learning how to shoot portraits; trying to capture people on location and finally there was a landscape workshop on the Wednesday afternoon preceded by a nice lunch above the valley at Sid M’Bark. In all, a full week of photography. You can view Karen’s, Eloises’ and Jo’s galleries here.
There has never been as much choice for photography holidays via searches on the internet so how do you choose the holiday for you? Here at Images we pride ourselves on offering an exotic week staying in a lovely Riad as well as a week’s intensive photography. We also like to promote course participants work so you can see the fruits of our labour!
So thoughts turn to Xmas: We’re offering a week’s holiday with a partner or friend with two night’s free accommodation here in Essaouira or Marrakesh. So why not check our offers page for available dates and book ahead to secure the best flight fares for this December.
