If you are interested in photography, Moroccan cooking, culture and visually stunning sites this is a "learning vacation' like no others. We spent a stunning week with 7 wonderful "classmates", Darren, his wife Naima, her sister and the fascinating people of Essaouira, Morocco. Darren was a patient, humorous and experienced teacher, not only in photography (excellent) but in the culture... More

I have recently returned from a photographic tour of the High Atlas Mountains with Darren and his wife Niama. This was the third tour I have been on with Darren and it was really very good. Photographically there were loads of great oppotunities whether you were intereseted in people, landscapes or architecture: many of these were quite special and down... More

I have just returned from a fantastic week in Essaouria. There were 7 in our group including a Canadian and a couple from the States with a great mix in ages and photographic experience. Tutorials took place in the morning, going right back to basics which was really useful. I didn't realise there were so many functions on my camera... More

I have been on two trips now with Darren Lewey, who runs Immages in the Sun. The first one was a photorgaphic course for a week in Essaouira. This was a mixture of tuition, trips to various locations and feedback. The was all tied in with an excellent holiday in Essaouira which is a lovely Medina including a harbour full... More

I joined Darren for a day, on two separate occasions, while I was staying in Essaouira in November. The first day was for portraits and reportage - Darren started the day by running through the basics that we might need and making sure everyone found the relevant settings on their cameras. With a mixed abilities group, it is always hard... More

We booked three days photography in November with Darren after our summer holiday and brief visit to Essaouira in August. Darren put together an itinerary to include the medina, port and some reportage photography. The first part of the class each day is looking at camera technique as well as referencing examples from other photographers concentrating each day on a... More

Essouira is a lovely town and a great place to try out your photography, We did leave with some lovely photos and Darren did teach us some new things about taking abstract photos and the importance of light and shade. Compared to other tutors we have learnt from, Darren does not seem to have a real passion for photography and... More

Hi Nick I'm sorry to hear that you found the teaching not to your liking. For the two days you booked we covered a lot, including people and architecture and you mention you got some good photographs so I think we covered some good ground. There were also others in the group so indeed some of the basics also needed... More

It was a steep learning curve - I'd never even held a DSLR camera before ("the Japanese would be weeping now") - but I learned ALOT from Darren over the week's Photography Course. And from my fellow students, too. Initially, I felt I was studying for A Level when I'd not mastered the 11+. And perhaps I should have asked... More

Darren is a great tutor, very patient with questions from a DSLR novice (me). He also showed us around some great places in and outside the Medina to take photographs and introduced the group to some superb restaurants which we wouldn't have found otherwise. Highly recommended. Visited September 2013
