We are delighted that The Financial Times decided to print two of our photos of Kasbah Bab Ourika in their "Christmas Unwrapped" special issue of their "How to Spend It" weekend magazine. The magazine is a huge vertical A3 format so the double page image is a massive A2. That is 420 X 594mm!

Agent Lynch undercover in Marrakech
Celebrated burlesque dancer and under cover spy Agent Lynch recently found herself in Marrakech on her most dangerous mission yet and nearly spent the rest of her days langushing in a Moroccan prison.
Thanks however to her femine charms and a not a little help from HMG's station chief she made good her escape ready for further adventures in Geneva next week.
Lucky for us Alan was on hand to photograph the whole chilling adventure which will soon be published as a new Still Images spy production - above is just a teaser of what is to come!
Atika is probably the most famous shoe manufacturers and retailers in Morocco. People come from all over the world crowd into their shop to buy boxes of their famous loafers and ballerinas.
So when they decided to launch an advertising campaign for the first time their biggest concern was only to work with the best photographer available and we are flattered at Still Images that they approached us. Atika's watchwords are colour, comfort and detail of craftsmanship. All of which you can see in this photo.
We are particularly delighted to be collaborating once more with Kasbah Numérik after first working with them on Zaïdina's photos. It is a real pleasure to work with true professionals.
We've also been working on our continuing collaboration with Islamic artist Yahya. The plan is that his new gallery will not just showcase his latest work but will also hold exhibtions that use his creations as a starting point to explore pattern and light through the meduim of photography.

In our on going collaboration with Danica Cosic we've been doing some marketing photos to help launch her range of hand crafted leather accessories. Here are a couple of the shots to give you an idea. Danica is not just a designer but also a gifted leather craftswoman in her own right. We also roped in contemporary artist Sibylle Baltzer to model Danica's bags & belts for us.
The Mamounia has reopended with a great deal of fanfare as it should. Alan Keohane is very proud that the entire ground floor room corridors are decorated with more than 60 reproduction prints of his photographs including this now classic photo of a young High Atlas Berber girl.
