Riad Kniza

We stay in one of legendary townhouses, better known as Riad. Well protected by the outer walls, a riad houses an attractive courtyard, which, with its ornate ornaments, its pool of water and lush plants, offers an oasis of tranquility in the middle of the historic town. An inviting pool, traditional hammam and first-class restaurant complete the experience.

Should the Riad Hotel Kniza be booked, we will find an equivalent replacement. We also may stay in a rural farmhouse, if it suits the group’s needs and interest better.

Why the technical part of photography is easy and social skills are key

During the workshop, we will have perfect conditions to train and master technical aspects of photography. We also will work a lot on composition and how to frame a shot.

Even more important is the psychology of photography, in our opinion. As soon as we manage the basics of photography, we will challenge you to take pictures of what you feel rather than of what you see.

We will share our experience and teach how to interact and how to build a connection with a subject. As your photos also will show the connection you built to a person, it is crucial to understand the nature of relationships. Empathy and respect is as important as exploring what works for the other person.

During our workshop you will learn how to tell the story of that moment so everyone feels privileged to be part of it.

This is why this workshop suits all levels of experience. Yes, we can support you to master your tool. And we can help you to learn new skills. But the most important thing: we believe that it is more essential ‘why‘ you want to take a picture, than ‘how’. Therefore, we will help you to discover what your photographic vision has to do with you as a person.

Because your personality has a larger impact on your photography than your gear. Join us in Marrakech.
