Read the Times Plus competition winners thoughts on our Photography Holiday in Essaouira

peter&Yvette Times Competition Winner

We were overwhelmed with entries for our competition in September, when GoLearnTo teamed up with The Times Plus to offer one lucky winner the chance to experience our fantastic 7 night / 8 day Photography Holiday in Essaouira, Morocco.

Our lucky competition winners, Peter and Yvette, have just returned from spending 8 days in sunny Essaouria with professional photographer Darren, and here’s what Peter had to say about his creative learning holiday:

“My wife and I spent a week on a DSLR course at the photography school  which is based in the Maison du Sud, a beautiful 18th century Riad with a helpful and friendly staff in the centre of the old part of Essaouira.

We were both absolute beginners and at the start of the course we knew absolutely nothing about DSLR photography.

At the end of the week we left not only with knowledge of camera techniques but also with an awareness of composition.

Darren Lewey is an inspirational teacher and he ignited in us an enthusiasm for photography.

The day after I returned from Essaouira I found myself recommending the course to a friend, a keen photographer.”

So why not take the plunge and give our Photography Holiday a go? You don’t need to have experience in photography, just a passion and interest to learn and explore the stunning scenery Essaouira has to offer.

Your photography tutor, Darren, is always at hand to inspire you and more than willing to pass on his extensive knowledge.

Not only will you return home with holiday snaps to really be proud of, but memories and skills to last you a lifetime.
