Photography Workshop – Retreat in the Desert.
Programme – Photography Workshop – Retreat in the Desert
Day 1: In the morning, we will first cross the desert plateaux of Jebel Tifernine and enjoy a great view over volcanic mountains on the pass Tizi-n-Tinififft (1660m). After Agdez, we will follow the longest oasis in Morocco along the life-spending Draa river. This oasis, with millions of date palms, is like a lush green belt along the river and the Jebel Kissane mountains. In these oases and the peaceful small Berber villages, life is still simple and the daily routine is pretty much the same as 100 years ago. At the end of the afternoon, we will drive 30 min. off-road to reach the peaceful bivouac La Dune Blanche, where we will explore the small, beautiful sand dunes of Erg Lihoudi.
Day 2: In the morning you have time to walk in the dunes. Then we set off with the dromedaries to a nice ride and enjoy a picnic lunch in the peaceful silence of the desert. This day will give you opportunities to explore the vast expanse of the desert and photograph desert life. The desert is an ideal place to sharpen one’s perception to the often hidden and overlooked details of nature, that offer great photography subjects.
Day 3: We will drive back via the Draa Valley to Ouarzazate, exploring the oasis and villages of the valley. You will return to Ouarzazate in late afternoon.
