About Photography in Morocco

From stunning architecture to the Atlas Mountains, Morocco is chock full of stunning photography opportunities. We will photograph stunning mosques, exciting medinas, beautiful Berber villages, and impressive cities like “The Blue City” of Chefchaouen. We’ll find plenty of landscapes, too, including prairies, gorges, high-altitude mountains, stunning coastlines, and the Sahara Desert.

In Morocco, you’ll definitely fill your fair share of memory cards, but you’ll also have a great opportunity to dive deep into this country that’s so rich in culture and history.
