Photography Véronique & Marc

Atelier Photo ~Workshop Learn to see differently.

A creative photo bicycle tour in Marrakech.

Learn to see differently

Through the lens of your camera, take this fascinating and beautiful escape into the ancient world of Marrakech’s alleyways. Take your time and follow the rhythm of your eyes to explore the Medina and its people as they go about their daily lives in a manner that has not changed for centuries.

 

2 photographers…

‘Learn to see differently’ accompanied by Véronique and Marc; both are passionate about photography. Véronique and Marc are Belgian and live in Marrakech, they know the city and its streets very well. Their friendship along with their common interest and love for photography gave birth to this wonderful project!

Véronique Schotte and Marc Van Vaek speak Dutch, French and English

 

Goal

Our photography workshop invites you to enhance the typical output you may get from your camera, go beyond the touristic snapshots, deepen your acquaintance with the ordinary objects around you and discover the thousands of photographic wonders that the Red City has to offer. In order to obtain a larger area and variety, we use the bike. This tour is a combination of photography - biking - streetart.

 

Equipment

All kind of cameras are accepted, even cell phones.

Program

* Start 09:00 AM

 

The starting point is at the Riad Laarrousse bicycle depot. We leave after a short introduction and safety briefing towards the place Ferblantier and pass in front of the Koutoubia mosque. This part of the journey takes place mainly in wide streets where you can get used to traffic and cycling.

 

After Place Ferblantier it goes to M'llah. From that moment, there is no car-intensive traffic. We meet Sidi Mbark and Chalid, in his own typical little house. The streets now vary from small asphalt streets to Derbs and typical narrow streets in the Medina. We continue the path, sufficiently animated by the street art but also by the scenery and the typical environments.

 

* Return to starting point around 12:30 PM

The end of the workshop is scheduled around 12:30 PM at the bicycle depot. Depending on the opportunities on the road and the crowd in the streets, this could eventually become 01:00 PM.

 

Wishing you a memorable day!
