Photography Permits

Shooting anywhere in a public location within Essaouira requires a special permit, which are notoriously tricky to acquire without the right local connection and knowledge. Our trusted local ground crew can help you obtain any necessary permits to reduce the risk of your equipment being confiscated by officials or precious production time being wasted dealing with the seemingly bizarre local beaurocracy.


We are proud to have some of the finest private chefs working with us to produce delicious, fresh Moroccan food – whatever your dietary requirements. Working with a local organic farm our catering team can provide a variety of wholesome healthy foods or,  should you prefer self catering, we can provide you with an organic welcome basket. From beachside BBQ’s to a relaxed dinner in your home from home, we’ll look after your crew, actors, models and photographers so you can focus on work but still enjoy and savour the finest local foods.

Accommodation & Transport

From crew accommodation in Essaouira to airport and location transfers, our friendly attentive team will make you feel at home and get you where you need to go! Our medina guesthouses are a popular choice for the film and fashion world and we also have a strong network of local hoteliers we work with regularly to ensure you’re comfortable and well looked after – all within your budget.
