Photography Marrakech Morocco

Photo montage – Southern Morocco

Travel writing and photographic projects both flourish in artistic Morocco but what is really interesting is how new social media forms – combined with cheaper high-quality camera lenses – are helping to facilitate a whole new generation of creative reporters.

This week, we stumbled upon a wonderful photo montage, or presentation, of one man’s car journey through Morocco.

Dave Fields, from Portland, Oregon, starts in Marrakech and while his words are minimal – in classic photo journalism style – his amazingly good photographs speak volumes.

Dave says of his adventure:

“Although our stint in Marrakech was short-lived, it does not take long to be absorbed into the fervid pace of the old Medina. Winding through the intricacies of the frenzied souks, losing all sense of direction seems nearly effortless as you follow the barrage of unfamiliar sights, sounds and smells. Marrakech is a true bombardment of the senses.”

He then travels to the High Atlas and winds westwards, then down to the southern coast and Essaouira.

Marrakech brings out the photographer in most of us. The light, the colours, the costumes and the winding souks all present incredible opportunities for travel photography. Even if you’re not normally one for taking holiday snaps, you will almost certainly regret not bringing a camera along with you to Marrakech.

There are plenty of tips online about how to take good photos, but these ones specifically address travel photography.
