This trip is going to be phenomenal. We're going to explore Marrakech and it's souks and medinas, alongside local artists and photographers, and be teaching photography to underprivileged Moroccan youth! This is because we're partnering with El Fenn - a local NGO that supports artists and artistic communities and projects in Morocco. We're so stoked!
Then we'll head to the High Atlas Mountains, into kasbahs and forts and ruins, and finally we will arrive to the Sahara Desert where we will camp overnight in the dunes, and spend a 2nd night in a hotel on the edge of the dunes. Epic!
This trip is going to be bursting with activities, experiences, and Moroccan culture. Our TGL Operations Manager went solo to Morocco last year to scout the way, so while it's our first time as a team, everything is in place for the most epic trip ever.
The dates will be October 12 - 21 2015. Be there! Join us!
We believe that we can make a difference. Photography is a phenomenal art form that not only allows us to capture moments frozen in time, but share our experiences, thoughts and emotions with others. It allows us to connect to other human beings in meaningful ways that might not have been possible otherwise. By participating in a TGL (The Giving Lens) workshop you are allowing yourself the opportunity to explore, document and work hand in hand to help make a difference with the local communities, NGO organizations and countries we will be working in. As you learn photography you might also be working with school children, helping to protect an endangered species or trying to understand the historical conflict that has plagued many parts of the globe for centuries. Those who participate will grow, both as people as well as photographers.
What kind of organizations do we work with? The Giving Lens partners with a single organization per workshop and only offers one workshop per country. We love working with NGO organizations that share our passion for creating a better world. There are many causes around the globe that are in need of support. From species preservation to eco sustainability, child education to those displaced by war, disaster survivors to those living with AIDS, we are happy to help where and when we can.
How did The Giving Lens start? The Giving Lens is the vision of Professional Photographer and Photo Educator, Colby Brown. Colby honed his skills traveling the globe, from the peaks of Nepal to ground-zero of post-earthquake Haiti. Through his experiences he felt compelled to help the amazing people he met along the way. He found himself looking for ways to combine his love for photography, and his deep passion to make a difference. In 2011 The Giving Lens was born in an attempt to blend photo education and helping to make the world a better place by giving back to local communities.
