A few of you managed to work out that I'm in Dubai from the clues I posted yesterday, so I'll tell you a bit more about my trip. Next week I'm presenting some seminars at the Gulf Photo Plus 2008 training event. This is an annual meeting of members of Gulf Photo Plus, that I also attended last year, and I'll be doing a variety of Photoshop workshops – black and white conversion, toning images, adding impact to an image, and so on.
This week though, I'm working with Elie Domit (featured in this shot), the owner of The Empty Quarter photographic gallery that will be opening in a few months time. It's located in the DIFC (Dubai International Finance Centre) and I'm shooting some material over the next few days with a view to displaying it in the gallery when it's complete. Today, I'm photographing the Gate, a financial building just around the corner from the gallery, and tomorrow I have two shoots planned. The first is in Bastakiya, one of the older areas of Dubai, and the second involves a night shoot of some of the construction work. I'll post shots from both over the next few days.
