Morocco Photo Adventure

“TO BECOME A BETTER PHOTOGRAPHER YOU HAVE TO VENTURE OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND MOROCCO WILL GIVE YOU PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITIES TO DO SO. ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?” WHY A PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE IN MOROCCO? Gateway to Africa, land of breathtaking mountain ranges, ancient cities and sweeping deserts, Morocco is any photographer’s dream and the ideal place to host our epic photo tour. If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough. – Robert Capa Taking photos (of people) in Morocco however, can be difficult, which is why this workshop is the ultimate challenge and the perfect opportunity for anyone who wants to make a giant leap in their street photography skills, learning to get closer, become part of the scene and conquer their fears in street photography. THE EXPERIENCE “If you decide to go with The Raw Society – be ready. Be ready to learn, to experience, to see, to really open your eyes and your heart – it will reflect on your photos. It’s intense, exciting, fun, exhausting, authentic, something out of the ordinary, hard work and an experience you will not soon forget. And what you learn is something you take with you for the rest of your life. The teachers’ patience is worth a medal and Jorge will quickly take your photography skills to the next level. I cannot recommend these guys enough!” Anne L.
