Morocco is a dream location for many photographers, with its rich culture, colorful architecture and evocative desert landscape. Tokyo based photographer Martin Bailey is making his first trip there from October 29 until November 10, 2017, and you are invited. In the capable hands of our professional driver and guide, we will experience Morocco at her best, with plenty of time to photograph each of our locations at the same time as fully experiencing the culture of this idillic north-western-most African kingdom.
You’ll be provided with more details in our tour guidebook after you reserve your place, but here is an outline of our itinerary during our Moroccan photography adventure.
Oct 29: Day 1 – Casablanca Arrival
Upon arrival in Casablanca, the economic capital of Morocco, you will be met and transferred to your Casablanca hotel, where you will check in. Around 4:00 pm, the group will gather for an introductory meeting with Martin and our guide. You will head out to capture the impressive Hassan II mosque on the Atlantic coast.
Oct 30: Day 2 – Casablanca / Rabat / Chefchaouen
After breakfast, we leave towards Chefchaouen, the famous blue city of Morocco in the Rif Mountains. On route, we will stop at Rabat, the capital city and residence of the King, for lunch and a time to enjoy the beautiful coastal city. We’ll visit the King’s Palace, the La Tour Hassan, Mausoleum, and more.
After lunch, we will conclude the drive to Chefchaouen. The small blue city of Chefchaouen is a photographer’s paradise. This is perhaps Morocco’s most peaceful town. Tucked away in the Rif Mountains, this is the perfect setting to capture the blue and white houses hidden in the medina.
Oct 31: Day 3 – Chefchaouen
After breakfast, we will have a tour of the cool blue town. Perfect for photography, the city offers every shade of blue. We’ll keep our eyes out for the unique doors, potted plants and handy-crafts as we wander through the blue town.
