Is adventure calling your name? Do you want an adventure that will allow you to create and tell stories? Are you looking for upgrading your portfolio? Are you eager to learn from other creators? Then this is the right adventure for you.
We want to give photographers and videographers an experience of a lifetime, therefore, we created a photography retreat called Postcard from Morocco. Postcard from Morocco is a roadtrip and not for photographers or videographers who just started. This is an adventure for experienced image makers who want to shoot at gorgeous destinations. Who wants to escape their current clients and get more pure, authentic experiences while photographing?
It is not simply a portfolio builder, we offer an experience. We’ll go deep, back to your soul to tell your story. To visualize your story. To attract the right people to your story. You will collaborate with the best vendors this industry has to offer to create stories.
Picture yourself standing on the foot hill of the Atlas Mountains, being surrounded by fellow creative talents. Soaking up the fresh air and get yourself ready to capture gorgeous images. Can you see yourself shooting at places where every detail has been perfectly planned out just for you?
We have planned more than five shoots for you, but this trip isn’t only about portfolio building. It’s about traveling through Morocco and immerse yourself in a different culture. It’s about sharing knowledge, make you stand out of a crowd of wedding photographers, capture pure moments and see what no one else sees or experiences. It’s about learning to create story’s through your art.
What will the trip look like
Day 1 Desert dreams
On the first day, we expect you to arrive in the morning. Whether you choose to arrive a day before or on the day of, the program starts around noon. We will check in at our beautiful riad in Marrakech and get to know each other for a little bit. Shortly after, we will leave to the Agafay Desert for the first shoot series. Wendy from Something Borrowed Something New will create a gorgeous low table and ceremony setting. Her styling, complemented with the desert as backdrop, will be our ‘studio’ for the first day. Earthy, natural and terra cotta is the style we’re aiming for. We’ll shoot until after sunset and go back to the riad to rest a little.
Day 2 Mountain madness
Rise and shine, as our day will start early! We’ll head off to the Atlas Mountains, which will be the location for our elopement shoot. This shoot will be bold, wild and free. Hats, boots, old cars included. The view from the mountains is incredible and one of the most stunning places Morocco has to offer. We head back to Marrakech before sunset, so we can have a nice dinner together and you’ll have the evening free to explore Marrakech more.
Day 3 Escape to Essaouira
Of course, we don’t leave Marrakech without shooting in this vibrant city. We will start the third day with couple/love shoots. On rooftops, in our riad, in the pink alleys and on the markets. Then, we hop into our bus and travel to Essaouira. We arrive to one of the most beautiful accommodations, where we settle down in two villas. There will be a sunset shoot, where you can participate to if you want.
Day 4 Essaouira elegance
Time for the first mastermind! Yaira will tell you everything about storytelling, getting that real connection with your clients and how to grow your business without losing yourself? Meanwhile, our styling team is busy setting up a ceremony and table setting at the different villas. After the mastermind, we start with the biggest shoot of the trip. Sophisticated, soft tones and dried florals are the main focus for this shoot. We shoot from midday to after sunset to create a wide variety of images and a good storyline.
Day 5 Scenic Oualidia
In the morning, we’ll check out and move from Essaouira to Oualidia; a super small, intimate coastal city. In the afternoon and evening, we’ll have the f ifth shoot at the beach. Flowy, raw and black ‘n white will be the vibe of this shoot. After sunset, we’ll relax in our beach accommodation.
Day 6 Casa is calling
We start this day with a mastermind by Claimy. We’re gonna talk marketing startegies! All about advertising, submissions, personal branding, destination weddings and how to turn followers into clients. After the mastermind, we travel from Oualidia to Casablanca. Where you’ll have the evening off to explore the biggest city of Morocco.
Day 7 goodbyes
After our last joint breakfast, we’ll go to the impressive Hassan II mosque for a visit. You can join if you want. Then it’s time to say goodbye and everyone to continue their own journey.
