A slightly silly shot today (of Isaa), but one that captures the flavour of our recent trip round Masirah Island in Oman.

I can't remember exactly where this was taken, but we were about an hour from Masirah on our way back to Dubai when we spotted these elegantly arranged trees not far from the side of the road.

It's my last day in Dubai - I fly back to the UK at 3am tomorrow morning - and it's been a great trip. GPP, as always, was a huge amount of fun, as was hanging around with Issa and Catalin in Oman, then back in Dubai for a few days with Issa. I'm sad to leave, but am also looking forward to seeing Libby and the kids.

As for this shot: it was taken this morning from Bernard's balcony, overlooking the Dubai Marina.

On an unrelated note, Issa shot for the Art Dubai photography competition yesterday and Arabian Eye are now accepting votes on their Facebook page. It's a great shot, so please head on over and give it your support.

I had a great day today, photographing Art Dubai with Issa and did take a couple of shots I'll probably post at some point, but in the meanwhile here's one of the images I took during my Landscape Photography workshop at GPP 2015.

And in case you're wondering about the deckchair: I always ask my students to bring along a prop - a pair of sandals, or bottle of water, or anything congruent with a trip to the desert - but didn't expect anyone to bring anything quite as large as a deckchair :-)

My apologies for the lack of recent posts but at the end of GPP Issa and I headed down to Masirah Island where we met up with Catalin Marin for a few days shooting. There was an internet connection in the hotel, but it was much too slow to post anything.

Anyway, to get back to the point, we had a great few days shooting - landscapes, portraits, and another project that I'll probably post at some point - but of all the shots I took I think this may be my favourite.

As always, let me know what you think.

Here's the first of the shots I'll be posting from my Shoot the City workshop I ran today at #GPP2015. I'm not convinced I 100% nailed it, but I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out.

Although I have to be up again in around four hours, for the first section of my Shoot the City workshop, I couldn't resist posting this one: a shot of my good friend Issa taken earlier this evening during a desert barbecue. And I would write more, but I really need to get some sleep :)

This is the location for the dawn shoot of my #GPP2015 Shoot the City workshop that starts on Saturday. We scouted it this morning, and although the light wasn't ideal I am pleased with how this one turned out.

This time tomorrow I'll be sitting on an Emirates flight, winging my way towards Dubai for GPP 2015. The event runs from the 6th-13th and I'll be running four of my favourite workshops.

After GPP I'll be heading to Oman for a few days with Issa AlKindy then back to Dubai for a few more days. Watch this space :)
