Have just returned from 10 days in Morocco on a Creative Escapes adventure. This is my third venture with CE and certainly lived up to my expectations. We went from the hustle & bustle of the souks in Marrakech to the tranquillity and challenges of the Sahara with the Atlas mountains in between. Accommodation was superb throughout the trip, as was the tuition. Jon ensures that he develops your own unique style and I felt my knowledge of exposure control is now far superior to before the trip. In addition I have brought home some pictures I am truly proud of. If you are looking to improve your photography skills in diverse settings while really getting to see the roots of a new country and you enjoy the social aspect , this trip is for you. I, like many others, will be travelling again with Creative Escapes. Thanks for an amazing trip :-)

I went on the Morocco trip a few weeks ago and had a great time.
The photography tuition was inspiring; tiny bit of technique to keep you in touch with the basics, and then it’s all about your own photography; how to explore your style, and learn to define it further. A useful journey.
Daily review sessions are thorough, constructive and personal. I learned loads.
Locations are fantastic, well researched and offer unique opportunities to really get into the environment you are in.
The same care has been taken to pick the places to eat. Whether in with the locals, authentic and traditional, or fancy spots, the food was great.
The hotel was very lovely and the perfect retreat after a day shooting. And there is loads of chilling out time with wine and good company in the evenings. It really is a holiday!
It all felt seamless too in terms of the organisation; you just focus on the photography and exploring where you are.
If you are a discerning traveller you will be in for a treat. And as a photographer you will come back feeling you have just taken it to another level, wanting to explore your own creativity.
Very well crafted all around.
