Morocco Photography Workshop and Tour | Alex Williams
October 2022

Alex is a photographer currently based in Kent, England. His passion for photography started during his time living in the Canadian Rockies; whilst there he spent every spare moment he had hiking through the mountains, it was these incredible landscapes that inspired him to pick up a camera and try to capture what he saw in the best way possible. From there photography went from hobby to obsession, and as a result of this, his passion for landscape and adventure photography grew. After months travelling solo through South America he settled in the beautiful city of Cusco mid 2018 where he guides photo tours throughout the Cusco region. Alex now shares his time between Peru and the UK, his love for adventure and unique perspective lend his photos their style.
