4 years back to this day I got to shoot one pretty exciting project in the Dubai World Central Airport. That day marked the landing of the Four Seasons Private Jet carrying its passengers to Dubai for the first time in its history. The landing was announced to be at around 6 pm time, which was not ideal as this time of the year it … Continue reading I believe I can fly or how I ran on the runway of DWC to shoot a plane landing.
Hello, my dear friends. Those of you, who reside in the desert like me, are on a home-run towards the end of summer (or at least we sure hope so). Despite corona-related regulations and precautions, we want to go out, really out, to the desert, to the mountains, to the sea-side… but it is still <+40 C, so we must wait. However, this past weekend … Continue reading Do You Know The Difference Between a Pebble and a Cobble? Buhais Geological Park, Sharjah.
Hello my lovely friends, I usually talk about photography-related topics here, but I have a few other interests in life such as “house gardening” being one of them. When you have over 60 plants at home (yes, perhaps we went overboard raiding the Garden Center when the lock-down was lifted in Dubai), it is hard to keep tabs on the needs of each one of … Continue reading How Not To Kill Your Plants
Since I was a kid, I loved to stare at the skies full of stars. I remember coming from the school on a crisp frosty Russian evening, I would locate a certain constellation of three stars and wonder what they are called (probably should look it up). If lucky to get out of the city on an August night, in a field, you can see … Continue reading Shoot for the Stars, You Might as well See a Comet… or Not.
Hello and welcome to my blog! Whether you have been here before, or it’s your first time, don’t get scared – no politics, only a glimpse into what used to be called “the real world” through my camera. Recently, the Government of the UAE decided to close off the Al Ras district of Dubai for disinfection, and medical check-up due to the fact that population … Continue reading Through a Magnifying Glass – A Photowalk In Al Ras
Ahlan wa Sahlan or welcome to my blog, today I would like to show you a few photos from the last photowalk we took with the Analogue photography group through the streets of Satwa on a lovely Friday morning, despite all the corona precautions. We met by a beautiful mosque called “The Big Mosque”, which was unfortunately closed at the moment due to the precautions … Continue reading Satwa Photowalk – In Search for Cats.
Everyone is tempted to draw a certain line at the end of the year, which I guess provides a certain psychological closure on a pathway to a better and newer you… at least in theory. Last year was quite an amazing year for me professionally, and in terms of my personal photography as well. I met so many great people, some of who turned into … Continue reading My favourite 2017 images (a year shot with Fuji)
Hey friend, I always shoot my landscapes in colour, and enhance the color, and bring out the details… but I though what if I try to turn them into black and white… would it work? It kinda leaves the bare essense of the image and no bullshit around. Look at this one, how the opening in the sky looks like eyes, and the glacier and … Continue reading Sometimes it’s Black and White.
Salut adventurers! Today’s story is about how we went to the desert to photograph a conservation project with Benjamin Wong as a part of his workshop for GPP17. The idea behind the project was that desert kills trees, and we need to help planet by planting more trees. So Benjamin and GPP teamed up with a charity company that plants trees. He found really cool … Continue reading This World Has No Limits. #GPP17
