What you need to know

If you are in Dubai for a short period and need a photography guide to take you to the best spots and vantage points in Dubai, this is the tour for you.

This is a private photography tour around Dubai. So it will just be you or your group and myself there to guide you. Being a private tour, the itinerary can be customized and tailored as per your request and also based on the equipment you have.

The tour will start with exploring the historical neighborhood of Dubai, the wind towers and the narrow streets. We then walk through the Old Souq and the textile market. From there we use an Abra (traditional dhow) that will take us across the creek. If you are into street portraits, you will love this part. This involves walking alongside the Iranian trade ships. They are pretty worn out but still sail across the Gulf, and that makes pretty photos. Here you get the chance to photograph people loading these ships. If you are lucky, we will manage to get on to one of these ships while it is docked. The captain will show you around the spaces on the boat. And this will be your opportunity to shoot portraits of them in their living spaces. We then end the tour on a rooftop for sunset with an amazing view of Dubai.
