Alumni Iftar evening at Habtoor Grand Hotel Dubai

Last weekend I photographed an iftar event at the Habtoor Grand Hotel in Dubai. What a large hotel with even larger grounds I have in the past only been there for dinner in the main building so have not had the opportunity to walk the grounds. Well I didn't this time either due to that it was very hot and humid even though it being an evening event. I was very glad that they had golf carts driving people around so that I did not have to walk all the way down to the beach with my tripod and all my cameras, I always bring two cameras for a photography job, for one thing I don't need to swap lenses I just swap camera and also incase  something would go wrong with one camera I always have the back up one to finish the job with. Just to be on the safe side. :-)
It was a fun gathering of people at the Alumni iftar event. Most people worked in finance, what they all had in common was that they had all Graduated from a University. There were some particular ones that were invited but can't remember them all right now so wont mention any of them so that no one will feel left out.

The photographs that I took that evening can be found through this link.

Dubai 2012 calendars & Greeting Cards 4 Sale.

I would like to say a Big Thank you to everyone that sent in a photograph of your children to Joanna at Babatude this week. She had loads of emails with gorgeous children to choose from. We only needed two for the shoot so could not select everyone unfortunately. I am sure more opportunities will come up later on so keep an eye out on this space!

We are still in the midst of a very hot and humid Ramadan here in Dubai. But it is never too early to start thinking of gifts to your loved ones that might not live next door to you. Since us expats need to consider delivery times etc.
So please take a look at my newly made Dubai 2012 calendars. Its full of images from around Dubai.
When ordering remember to choose your year so that you will get 2012!
If you are more into Digital Abstract Art then maybe this one is to your liking?

I have recently received my Greeting Cards that I ordered before I went on holiday. I am so pleased of how they all turned out! I will be selling them here in Dubai, if you are not living in Dubai and are interested in my Greeting cards you can still buy them from this website below Redbubble and have them sent pretty much to anywhere in the world.

I photographed a gorgeous family the same day I went on holiday so I better get started on editing their images so that I can deliver them soon.
Ramadan Kareem to everyone that celebrate.

On Wednesday next week I am photographing the winter collection for Babatude and we are now looking for Children Models for that shoot.
'We are looking for babies and toddlers and little ones, for our next photo shoot on Wednesday 17th August! If you know of any gorrrrrgeous babies aged between 9 months through to 4 years, that are Dubai-based and might be interested in becoming a Babatude mini-model, please have their Mum or Dad email Joanna – joanna@babatude.com - with a couple of recent pictures as soon as possible ! x'

If you have a little one that fits the age criteria and are available on Wednesday morning please don't hesitate to email a recent photograph to Joanna she is scouting for the models.
Don't fret if you are not in Dubai for this photo shoot more photo shoots will come later on in the year.
Not one of my images. Previous Babatude collection
