Photographing Dubai...The city at the end of the world.

October 23, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Dubai is a very impressive place - love it or hate it you cannot deny this.

 

An amazing city to photograph where the architecture is things that George Lucas used to dream up 40 years ago and would sit well on the set of a Star Wars movie as well as it does in the middle of the desert.

You can't do a blog on Dubai without mentioning the heat....I was there in September and the heat a was crazy 40 degrees and humid, I was soaked through with sweat if I was outside - day or night, end of story (the 5* hotel I was in had a great pool which helped alot!) You have to bear this in mind if you ever plan to go...during the winter months the weather is more bearable (or so I've heard).

it's a very hospitable place and the service is excellent everywhere.

 

The desert isn't far and Al Madam, featured in the pictures below is a great place to photograph.
