GPP / 2014

 

What is GPP2014?
GPP2014 Is an annual photo fest that brings the world's top photographers and educators to Dubai to share their knowledge and experience with the Middle East and Africa's professional and amateur photography community. The dates have been set and it will take place from March 7 –14th

Save the date, book your leave and start finding creative ways to convince your partner and/or boss to get out to Dubai or take the week off for a fun and inspirational photography festival like no other!

To get a taste of what it’s all about, check out last year’s schedule here and watch a short behind the scenes video here.

Who will be there?
Lindsay Adler, Zack Arias, Joel Grimes, Gregory Heisler, Sara Lando and Joe McNally are some of the top photographers and educators confirmed for GPP2014. Stay tuned for the release of the full line up. 

Where will the event take place?
GPP2014 will take place at the Dubai Knowledge Village Conference Centre.

More than just workshops!
Alongside the awesome workshops at GPP2014 will be lots of other special events and activities (many of which are completely free of charge). More will be announced closer to the event, but for now you can look forward to:

Photo Friday: We’ll kick off the event with Photo Friday on March 7th; a jam-packed day of seminars and panels from the visiting photographers. With sixteen 90-minute sessions happening throughout the day, it’s a fantastic and affordable way to gain amazing insights and advice, and different perspectives from some of world’s best photographers – choosing your favourite four will be the hard part!

 
 

The Shoot Out: the closing ceremony of GPP2014 will be our, now legendary, Shoot Out on March 14th. We’ll pit three of the visiting photographers against each other in a battle to make the best photograph of an undisclosed (to them) subject for your viewing pleasure. Sounds too easy? They’ll have just 20 minutes to shoot and process their image live on stage, with commentary (and the obligatory heckling) from their fellow photogs. A must-see, free to attend event. Check out last year’s shoot out here.

 

Exhibitors: the world's leading photography brands will be exhibiting throughout the entire GPP2014 event in the public area of the Dubai Knowledge Village Conference Centre. GPP attendees can avail of exclusive, special discounts, have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the latest photo gear, and benefit from other useful services including lens hire and free sensor cleaning.

 
 

…plus many more special events to be announced!
