Northern Morocco Photography Adventure with Harold Davis (October 2019)

I am very pleased to announce my third visit to Morocco! Please consider joining my very select photography group (with a maximum of twelve photographers). This photography adventure is organized in conjunction with Intrepid Travel, a major international travel services company, and is very fairly priced at $3,200 per person for twelve days.

We will meet in Casablanca, and begin with a festive welcome dinner at Rick’s Café, a fabulous recreation of the café from the film Casablanca. I am particularly pleased that the tour schedule I have designed in conjunction with Intrepid Travel includes plenty of time for photography in the labyrinthine medieval city of Fes and in Chefchaouen, the “blue city” in the stunning Rif Mountains. The group activity ends in Marrakech.  Please see the PDF for complete itinerary details.

Accommodations include five nights in hotels, five nights in riads (these are traditional Moroccan buildings based around a courtyard, usually featuring fountains, decorative tile work, and flowers), and the overnight train from Tangier to Marrakech.

I will provide periodic photographic expertise and tutelage (and individual guidance on special request). In addition, there will be an English-speaking trip leader throughout, and local guides for specific areas.

This will be a small, very well-priced photography group, and we expect it to fill quickly on a first-come, first-served basis.
