Doing photography in Tunisia

With the recent shooting of Star Wars in Tunisia many tourists have been flocking the country and wanting to capture the country's scenic views on camera.

How to get great pics

  • In case you're in Tunis take advantage of the city's close proximity to Sidi Bou Said, a small town near Tunis. The white buildings and exotic blue sea look spectacular especially when the photo is taken from a high point.
