Discovering the many views of the futuristic Dubai skyline on a three-hour private photo tour of Dubai.

With the Burj Khalifa as its crowning jewel, the Dubai skyline is the instantly most recognisable in the world. Join us as we criss-cross the Sheikh Zayed Road, up and down rooftops and around rivers to place you in the best spots to capture this impressive skyline. The three hour, private tour teaches photography skills as well as encourages your creativity and photographic development.

Whether you are starting off, a hobbyist or have years of experience, our team of professional photographers will find superb photographic opportunities. Take advantage of the one-on-one experience of our private and personalised tour to develop your own creative vision. 

Each tour is crafted to the skills and needs of the participants. Apart from taking photos, you can also expect to learn:

  • Creative composition, using lines, repetition, camera angles

  • Training your eye: composition, subjects, lighting

  • The best places to shoot the skyline in Dubai

  • Taking control of your camera: f-stop, shutter speed, ISO and focusing

  • Reviewing your photography

You won't be on your feet the entire time though; we will start off with a coffee to go over your work and level of technical expertise so that our professional photographers can craft the perfect tour, suited directly to your skill set. We will be hopping in and out of airconditioned areas so that you won't be under the sun all of the tour. Let us know if you have a particular location you want to shoot and we will work it into the itinerary.

Each tour is private, and we will not couple you with people you do not know.  Feel free to bring along guests, such as other photographer friends,  or your partner and family, but we ask you to limit the group to four people. This way we can work at your pace to make sure you take away the skills that last a lifetime.
