Rock the Casbah

written by Rocky Barnes Blog December 10, 2014

I have been dreaming of Morocco for years.  I was beyond excited to find out I would be shooting there for a week with one of my favorite clients, Prana Yoga.  One of the best things about traveling for work is that you get to shoot in some of the most beautiful locations.  It was amazing all the sights we packed into just one week.

We started in Essaouira, a costal town about 3 hours from Marrakech.  There we explored the fortress on the water and ran in the dunes over looking the ocean.  Next was Marrakech.  There we did everything from exploring the souks, to surfing camels, visited the Jardin Majorelle,  and tasted all of the local specialties.

I was a kid in a candy store the last day in the market.  I pride myself in being an expert shopper but was immediately overwhelmed by the size of the souks and the bargaining game the Moroccans like to play.  In the end, I scored some beautiful treasures including a Moroccan wedding blanket that now lives on the edge of my bed.

There is so much to see behind the humble walls of Marrakech, I cant wait to go back…
