An Important Note About Photography

Generalities : In Morocco the camera now is considered a pretty normal device nothing bad about it, but in most cases people will get a little upset if you point the lens in front of their face or pointing their shop or their space, they will just expect a little asking for permission before ... please can i take a photo ? they will normally say Yes with no hesitation and if they say No it's not that big of a deal ... yo can go also sneaky in many spots and take pictures with no one noticing and that's also fine. but as a general Rule people are okay taking pictures they don't mind if you're polite and smiling. Don't Do : - Never take pictures of Policemen, military officers, Military facilities, national security buildings ... it's 100% prohibited to do that. - Don't bring your Drone they might take it from you at the airport and keep it until you're flying back from morocco, Drones are forbidden in morocco. - Don't take pictures of Royal palaces and Royal residences except the ones that are a touristic Attraction.
