Morocco


This fascinating country is a merging of the African and Arab worlds, and is steeped in age-old customs. It's no wonder Morocco has been feted by artists and writers for decades and continues to enchant all who visit.

THE SETTING:

Away from the bustling buzz of Marrakech, I invite you to come with me to experience the beautiful authenticity of a laid back sea-side village Essaouira, with its colorful fishing boats bobbing on the water, stately old shore-side fort with hundreds of  and twisty narrow blue and white streets of the old town. 

Just a few miles a way our gorgeous villa Gonatouki is located. 

Villa Gonatouki is decorated entirely in the Moroccan tradition, revisited by the contemporary design. You will appreciate the many rooms with various atmospheres and the charming patio, very pleasant at the end of the day. The villa has many sunny terraces, offering an unbelievable panorama of the surrounding countryside and the sea. A 1100 square meters of the territory surrounded by the fence insures complete seclusion and freedom.

Like all our photo adventures we want to maximize your experience, not only through creative work, providing the most unique locations, and the most beautiful models, but also making sure you immerse in the local culture, indulge on the exotic cuisine, and have some time to simply relax. 

All the meals will be cooked by an experienced Moroccan chef, known for the best couscous and tajine in the area. We will discover the exotic flavors of traditional moroccan cuisine, followed by the classic mint tea or local wine. Of course all dietary restrictions will be satisfied.

The two pools, one of them being heated make a great place to create or to chill, enjoying the sunset. After a long day, shooting on the beach or in the sand dunes, try the traditional moroccan hammam, followed by a relaxing massage, all on the territory of the villa and included in the price. 

Besides the gorgeous setting of the villa itself, fun activities are included in the program.

We will ride quads along the deserted vast coast to the beautiful sand dunes, that overlook the ocean. They are secluded from both tourists and locals and make a stunning location for photos. See for yourself! 

The ride will be adjusted to each participant’s preference, to make everyone's experience the most exciting but also comfortable. 

Another unique and exotic activity will be shooting with camels on the beach! These animals are well trained and very sweet and will be delighted to pose with our beautiful models. :)
