Who are we?

Inspired by David Hobby’s trip, his small strobes workshop in Dubai at Gulf Photo Plus (GPP) 2008 and of course his infinite wisdom about off camera flash, a group of four met up on Umm Sequeim Beach (next to the Al Arab Hotel) on 17 May 2008 to hone in on a few of the Master’s techniques. Since then we’ve had 10 meetups, mostly at Capital D Studio in Al Quoz and generally meetup twice a month.

Initially we posted our work on Flickr but unfortunately many people have difficulty accessing the site as it is blocked here in the UAE. Nevertheless I set about informing people via email of our planned meetups and with a little promotion from Gulf Photo Plus we have grown in numbers and currently have an interest from move than 60 keen photographers, ranging from intermediate to semi professional.

In order to develop as a group we now have setup a place on the blogsphere (thanks to Mark initiating the whole process), so hopefully there will be no more lost emails and confusion as to where and when the planned meetups are being held. If you are an old member then I’m sure you’ll be familiar with our regular meetups, however if you’re a newbie please come along and join in.

Just as a flavour of what we have managed to achieve from our past meetups I’ve produced a Web Gallery in Lightroom which can be viewed here so have a look and enjoy.
