About Us:

Ira Block:

For more than thirty years, Ira Block has been covering assignments around the world for National Geographic—in locations as diverse as Africa, the Australian outback, the Gobi Desert, Siberia, the North Pole, Greenland, and Baffin Island. The subject matter of Ira's photographs is as varied as the destinations stamped in his passport. Some of his assignments include "The Samurai Way" and "Race to Save Incan Mummies." From gold coins retrieved from Havana's sunken treasure ships to the largest discovered T-Rex dinosaur, to a lost Confederate submarine, Ira's lens continues to capture and document amazing stories from around the globe. His photos of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy are part of the permanent collection of the National September 11 Memorial Museum.

Join me and National Geographic’s Ira Block in Morocco!

This September we will be visiting the mythical land of Morocco. Travel with us to the imperial cities of Fez, Meknes and Marrakech. With their spectacular souks and vivid mosaics, we’ll meander through their ancient medinas, camera in hand. We’ll also explore Morocco’s diverse landscapes; the cities, the dunes, the palm oasis and the mountains. Take part in a camel trek across the desert sands of Merzouga and photograph the sun as it sets over the Sahara. Sleep in a traditional Berber tent. We’ll discover the UNESCO sites of Ait Benhaddou, where so many feature films have been shot, and we’ll wander among the Roman ruins of Volibilis. Hands on technical classes and daily critiques will take your photography to the next level.

Dates: September 6-14, 2014 (9 days & 8 nights)

Price: $4395
