Gourmet Presentation – Steak and fries

As I was saying a while ago, I decided that when I don't have any shoots scheduled, I would still attend a photo assignment. Since Its extremely hot in Dubai these days (37 degrees in the morning before 9AM), the only photos I can take are the ones on my balcony. I'm setting up the … Continue reading Gourmet Presentation – Steak and fries

Photo Shooting – Toddler

This was an old idea I had in my first "beginner in photography" days - I was thinking to shoot toddlers. Since I didn't had the opportunity (the approach was quite difficult since I didn't ha a portfolio) and also I was a newbie about photograph, I didn't do it. Until last month I was … Continue reading Photo Shooting – Toddler

Souk Madinat Jumeirah – Colors,details and reflections

Packed my camera and went today to "make some mistakes" in Jumeirah District in a place called Souk Madinat. It was mostly cloudy outside with temperatures reaching 21-22 degrees C.
