Back to GPP in Dubai

Waiting in DBX
Waiting in DBX

Later this week I’ll be at GPP 2015, that’s Gulf Photo Plus for those uninformed. It’s a yearly workshop series and photo festival in Dubai, where the best-of-the-best meet for 8 days of photography-related mayhem. 

I attended last year in an effort to jump-start my creativity and get back into shooting, With classes by Zack Arias, David Hobby, Joe McNally, David Nightingale, Peter Hurley, Lindsay Adler and a host of other superstars it is an amazing event. This year will see me there in a more professional capacity, my workshop participation as a photographer will be limited. I am hoping to attend RC Concepcion’s seminars on website development. 

I have always managed to shoot great photos in Dubai airport. This year was no exception. On my way to WPPI in Las Vegas, I had a 4 hour layover in good old DBX. Using my Fuji X-T1, 28mm f/2.8 pancake and the Fuji Remote Camera app I managed to grab some cool images (sample above). Please see others in my Flickr photostream.

If you’re going to GPP 2015, I hope to see you there. Mark it on your calendar and plan to be there in 2016 if you can’t make it this year.
