LOCATION: Casablanca, Morocco.
SPECS: Canon 6D, 24-70mm 2.8f.
YASMIN SAYS: "I was advised to skip Casablanca as there was ‘nothing to see’. I spent a day here and I do not regret that. It’s such a cosmopolitan city and watching the locals jump off the wall of the Hassan II Mosque is an experience, they put on quite a show. The swell was pumping and these guys were body surfing the waves in after jumping off the wall."

SPECS: Canon 6D, 24-70mm 2.8f.
YASMIN SAYS: "This was one of the most memorable meals I had in Morocco. We found a back alley with no tourist restaurants, asked the waiter to bring us what was good today. Here you see all vegetarian dips and lentils and a salad with fresh bread."

LOCATION: Essaouira, Morocco.
SPECS: Canon 6D, 24-70mm 2.8f.
YASMIN SAYS: "This is the local market on a usual day of hustle and bustle, Essaouria is such a great coastal town, filled with life and culture and still has a great local feel."

LOCATION: Lagzira Arch, Sidi Ifni, Morocco.
SPECS: Digital Canon 6D.
YASMIN SAYS: "This arch is worth the 3 hour walk from Sidi Ifni. You must go at low tide, but the scenery and treasures you find along the way (and the destination) are totally worth it. We caught a local bus back."

LOCATION: Sidi Ifni, Morocco.
SPECS: Canon 6D, 24-70mm 2.8f.
YASMIN SAYS: "Sidi Ifni is a tiny Spanish colonial town on the coast in south Morocco. It is absolutely gorgeous, painted mostly blue and white. There is one hostel which has been owned by a family for many years. They also have a surf school where you can rent surf boards. This was a photo I saw as I was walking the streets. It was an absolutely picturesque seaside town."

LOCATION: Chefchaouen, Morocco.
SPECS: Canon 6D, 24-70mm 2.8f.
YASMIN SAYS: "Chefchaouen was the reason I visited Morocco. As a photographer, a city in the mountains that was painted entirely blue (my favourite colour) could not be missed. It did not disappoint. Its other name is ‘city in the clouds’ and the reason it’s painted is blue is not just because it's ‘in the sky’ but also to repel mosquitos! If you are in Morocco make an effort to get up to the mountains and visit this small town."
