The tour starts with a coffee (or other beverage of your choice), and I learn about what you would like from our time together. Then I ask you some interesting questions about photography, to get us on the right track for improving our photos. Then we have a discussion about photography and camera settings, and especially for night photography. I will explain the easiest way to achieve great results! Now is the time to you can ask any questions you have. Then we will head out to start exploring the city in the afternoon and evening light, followed by some night photography time. I will share my philosophy on photography as we explore, and give hands-on practical tips to take your photography to the next level. The tour is private, so it will be tailor-made just for you. From over ten years of experience taking photography tours, I have distilled my thoughts into a process thats easy to follow. It's designed so that you can be better, once you know how it works. It's fun, a little bit challenging, and very rewarding!
Olaf is a working professional photographer who specialises in weddings, portraits, and scenic photography. He is also a gifted teacher. So you will be learning all the tips and secrets to taking better photographs from a real professional - someone who walks the walk. Olaf understands that great photography is how you translate your reactions, feelings, senses, and thoughts, into photographs that tell stories. You'll learn how to take better pictures, get to see some more of this beautiful world, and maybe have some fun along the way. After all, that's what life should be about!
Tripods, if required
Where we go will depend on the length of the tour. The 3 & 4 hour tours are around the Dubai mall area, including views of the Dubai Fountains and Burj Khalifa (world's tallest building). For longer tours we will also visit other great photo spots in Dubai. We can decide this together, depending on the length of the tour. For example we can visit the Dubai Water Canal, Burj Al Arab, Madinat Centre, DUbai Marina... the possibilities are endless!
Camera, (or Phone)
The tours are private, so once you book the time is just for you (and your group). I look forward to sharing Dubai with you and helping with your photography!
