LHM Photography Tours of Marrakech and beyond...

The Photography Tour, booked and arranged by Passeport Travel, involved a small group of clients visiting Morocco to celebrate a special birthday.

It all began with a brief health and safety lesson, "Mind your heads." (there are many low archways in Marrakech) "Look out for Donkeys, mules, mopeds, taxis and carts...all at once!"

Over the next few hours I gave technical advice and hands on photography tips and tricks. I explained how to improve exposure, understand composition, get the best from the camera in ever changing lighting situations and shooting from different viewpoints. During all this, we all took in the magical sights, sounds and smells of Marrakech. The group discovered many hidden gems away from the usual tourist trail, from spice souks, food markets, flower stalls and palaces. At the end of the tour we sat on low chairs in the sunshine, each sipping a well deserved glass of mint tea while the cry of the muezzin calling the faithful to prayer wafted by.

Since the tour I've been delighted to receive two wonderful quotes from the group, which I've shared below, along with a small collection of images I managed to capture in-between teaching.

"Our morning with Laura in the Medina was a real highlight. Marrakech is such a photogenic city and to see it through Laura's eye was an utterly pleasurable experience. We explored secret markets, stunning stalls, cultural sights and met all manner of wonderfully photo-friendly subjects. This is one of the most fun ways to explore the souks and is thoroughly recommended."

Mr A Conti, Passeport Travel

"Shira felt her day with you was not only educational, but a pure joy getting to know you and spending a little time seeing Marrakech through your eyes. I enjoyed it equally and think you may have an additional career path looming if you're interested! Thanks, Laura."
