Darren is a friendly chap and we had a great week together in Morocco. The weeklong tour included some of the best locations in Morocco to photograph including some remote places as well. Having basic knowledge of your photographic equipment and being ready to follow his guidance was necessary as you have to be rather quick when an opportunity comes... More

This is the second Photography Holiday I have spent in Morocco with Darren and this time it was a 10 day trip from Marrakech, over the High Atlas to the desert at Merzouga. There were wonderful opportunities to photograph less visited places and people and expert help was always on hand for those difficult shots. Altogether it was a great... More

I had a week in the small, coastal town of Essaouira, in Morocco in February 2016 with the previous reviewer. We were 5 solo travellers of all ages and abilities. The trip was ably guided by Darren Lewey. It is a very stimulating place to take photos as every where you look there is colour and pattern in terms of... More

Attended the learning holiday in Feb 2016 and can definitely recommend it to anyone with these interests. The transfers from Marrakesh were trouble free and the accommodation at Maison du Sud was good quality and very convenient in the heart of the medina Tuition and excursions were expertly handled by Darren Lewey, and was just the right balance between learning...

I arrived for this course as an amateur photographer and absolute foodie. I learnt more in a day with Darren than I ever picked up in a weekend course. It is one thing to be good at something, another to teach it effectively. Darren was organised, and great at imparting conceptual understanding. He gets my vote! His wife Nima was... More

I have just returned from an amazing photo holiday experience in Essaouira, which is on the Western/Atlantic shores of Morocco.

I had a fabulous week in Essaouira improving my photographic skills with the guidance of Darren, who was a knowledgeable and excellent teacher. I liked the way the course was structured, covering reportage, abstract and portraiture on separate days. I would not hesitate to recommend it. I came away with not only some great images, but also some new photography... More

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...
