I have just got back from a week in Morocco on this course. I have attended a variety of day courses and meet ups in London, but the week with Darren was by far the most useful tuition I have ever had. There were some very challenging moments, but I think we all improved precisely BECAUSE we were taken out of our comfort zone. Darren gave us so much technical and creative guidance and I really felt that I knew what I was doing with my camera by the end of the week. The approach of a different focus each day made me look at things around me in a whole new light, and I can't wait to get out with my camera and put my skills to further use now I am home. The Riad we stayed in was great, and Darren organised a different restaurant for each night. He was a great source of information on Moroccan lifestyles, culture, food etc. We went to places and met people we would never have done on our own. He was great at organising additional activities such as Hammam and cooking classes. Essaouira is a lovely place too - it is very relaxed, very friendly, and wonderful for the summer as the strong breezes keep the temperature down. I stayed on for a few days at the end in a Riad down by the beach, and it is also a lovely place for sunbathing by the pool, trying kite surfing, camel rides etc. I really can't recommend this course enough. It was great to spend time with other enthusiasts and I think we all got a lot out of each other's feedback, as well as Darren's. I would love to go back to do another trip with him!
