Off-duty observations: A wedding photographer in Marrakesh

James Broadbent is a wedding photographer from New Zealand. Along with photographers Cameron Thorp and Chris Copeland, he works under the name Chasewild, shooting couples’ special day around the globe (the trio have clocked up 18 countries to date). When not on duty, Broadbent enjoys documenting his travels — from Norway to Cambodia. A recent trip to Morocco was no different.

He writes that, while Morocco is typically associated with “images of lush hotels, colourful tiles, huge swimming pools and tourists galavanting through the Sahara on camels”, there is far more than may initially meet the eye. Instead, Broadbent’s photos reveal a more person portrait of a colourful city and diverse population.

“So much that has been missed in this and I'd like to show you some of the raw beauty of this country.”
