Behind the scenes of the Weird Fish summer photo shoot in Morocco

For the SS17 photo shoot we took the Weird Fish photography team back to Morocco, we originally shot there in 2012, but this time we headed further north and for a different look and feel.

We were in the village of Essaouira in an amazing couple of houses right in the thick of the markets.

The streets themselves were full of noise, colours and smells, it is a complete feast for the senses. You could get lost in the warren of back streets, filled to the brim with fantastic rug and spice stalls.

Situated close to the vibrant and busy fishing port, a favourite hang out for seagulls, and interesting characters.

We even threw poor Marco into the thick of it with an ice cream to get the perfect shot of him in his “Seagull has Landed” T-Shirt.

There was no end of interesting areas to explore in this town, it was hard to tear ourselves away.

Morocco is famous for its deliciously nutty Argon Oil. We were invited to see how it was made, and even try our hand at grinding some ourselves.

Due to the extreme wind and constant sand-blasting, most of the team became experts in wrapping head scarves, an excellent way to keep off the sun, sand and wind.
