Lighting bootcamp workshop in Dubai

Our visit to Dubai for the Gulf Photo Plus 2012 was certainly a highlight so far this year.

It was an intensive week of location shooting, with a strong focus on expanding our skills and knowledge in working with studio & portable lighting.

It was an amazing opportunity to learn from some incredible photographers from around the world and a valuable chance to experiment with new techniques and equipment.

We had a wonderful selection of models to work with and the locations varied from the Dubai International Financial Center to a working floor tile and marble factory. Loads of possibilities!

The week was very inspiring and certainly raised the bar in what is possible with flash powered lighting.

Using flash is an important strategy when creating extra-ordinary images. It’s one of the tools available to create visually striking images that are beyond what we see in day-to-day life.

Can’t wait for next years GPP and new projects to implement our new skills on!

Here are a few more images from the trip…
