Every year at GPP, Dubai’s Photography Festival we end the week long event with a special evening where we showcase work by the students during the week and then go out with a bang and have our now famous GPP ShootOut. David Hobby calls it the “most exciting hour in the photography world” and for good reason!

Here's how it works:

We pit three of the visiting photographers, this year it was Sara Lando, Ryan Brenizer and Joel Grimes - against each other in a competition to make the best photograph of a mystery subject. They will be told who (or maybe what) their subject is live on stage and then will have just 20 minutes to shoot them (or it!) in front of a packed auditorium of photography fans.

As an added bonus, they get a couple of the visiting photographers to heckle them to keep it entertaining.
