Not all travel photography workshops to Jordan are equal, but both of our previous trips to Jordan have been a wild success. Imagine: sleeping under the stars in Wadi Rum, crossing the desert by camel, pulling into the ruins of Petra by candlelight, and taking a dip in the Dead Sea all in one trip – AND you get to document and support a phenomenal NGO. It’s a dream come true! We are proud to be partnering with Project Amal Au Salam, which seeks to empower Syrian refugee children through education, day camps, events, and workshops that seek to open dialogue, provide a safe space to deal with emotions and promote creative exploration. This gives Syrian children access to music, sports, heath and hygiene classes, art, and – you guessed it – photography!
We will begin and end our trip in Amman, and from Amman we head to Jaresh, where the NGO is based. Jaresh is also home to some unbelievable ruins! From there head out to the wilds of Jordan on a private bus, to tour the countryside, get lost in the desert, camp under the stars, stand in awe at Petra, and float along in the Dead Sea. We will be moving every two nights, so pack light – we will be covering a lot of ground! But we promise, it’s worth it!
