Top class week of tuition specifically tailored to your skill level (in my case complete beginner). Darren took us to places that normal tours don't reach, the riad and restaurants were all good, and the balance betweeen theory and practice meant that I came out of the week feeling much more adventurous and in control of my camera, with some...

What kind of photo tour does one want? Many photo tours cater to people who want to copy the style or images of a famous photographer, or have an abundance of setups where you can get good, but not unique, images, or be taken to famous tourist spots that are already well photographed - the end results are photographs that...

We had a fantastic trip that started in Marrakesh and ended at Merzouga in the Sahara. Darren and his wife, Naima, are wonderful and knowledgeable hosts. My wife and I traveled with them and 1 other photographer, who happened to speak both Arabic and English. Niama was always great at smoothing the way with families and shopkeepers as we photographed... More

One of the other reviews here put it really well and succinctly: "if you want to improve your photography in a fantastic location with a great teacher at a very reasonable cost, look no further". For me too, this says it all. Essaouira is an amazing and exotic location and one with so many images to feast the eye; Darren... More

Darren, Thank you for a wonderful trip. While I have been on various other photographic tours, I had no idea what to expect in Morocco. This was by far the most exotic and unique place I've been. Not only was the scenery exciting and different, but the people we photographed were amazing. The experience of photographing people in their homes,... More

I have just spent an excellent 10 days in Morocco on Darren's photo tour in southern Morocco which runs from Marrakech. In company with his delightful wife Naima, Darren organised a very full itinerary of magnificent photogenic venues combined with very comfortable accommodation in a variety of small hotels and auberges. Darren's patient assistance and coaching helped me to capture... More

If you want to improve your photography in a fantastic location with a great teacher at a very reasonable cost. look no further. You are located in a historic Riad in the heart of the Medina surrounded by photographic possibilities. Essaouira is much more laid back that usual tourist Morocco. Darren is an excellent teacher who provides pragmatic advice and... More

I have just got back from a week in Morocco on this course. I have attended a variety of day courses and meet ups in London, but the week with Darren was by far the most useful tuition I have ever had. There were some very challenging moments, but I think we all improved precisely BECAUSE we were taken out... More

Just got back from a great week in Essaouira on Darren's photography course. The riad was lovely with attentive staff and a lovely roof terrace. Darren's tuition was good, pointing out our strengths, lots of technical advice and guidelines for improving composition and execution. Everyone in our group of 5 improved through the week as a result of having the... More

I undertook the 10 day Atlas Tour in May and consider myself an intermediate DSLR user. It was definitely one of the best photographic tours I have ever been on and have many incredible memories as a result. Morocco is a stunning country as it is, but Darren and Naima's itinerary is unique, well thought-out, and jam-packed full of an... More
