Suhoor Strolls | Ramadan Photo Walks

Instructor: Mohamed Somji

This Ramadan, join us for a photo walk, exploring one of Dubai's most well-loved neighborhoods.

What's Covered

Although suhoor refers to the dawn and thus, the pre-dawn meal during Ramadan, here in the UAE, suhoor has come to refer to post-iftar late night activities that both observant Muslims and non-Muslim expats alike partake in during the holy month. While breaking the fast is a sacred moment, ending the day's strenuous obligation, suhoor allows one to relax and enjoy the celebratory spirit of Ramadan, through anything from playing board games to shopping to drinking chai.

 

If you're keen to experience suhoor first-hand, join Gulf Photo Plus on one of our Suhoor Strolls in Karama, a neighborhood full of delectable bites and fairy lights. Whether you're shooting on your mobile phone or your camera, your guide will set you up with the night photography tips you need to capture crisp images that tell a story of Ramadan. You'll also be able to up your portraiture game, as we've scouted the best locations where the artificial colored lights of Karama storefronts spill out onto the streets for the perfect night portrait. After our stroll, which will include a special tandoori chai stop, lessons of local history, and exploration of hidden gems, we'll finish our evening at a local restaurant* where you'll have an image review with your guide, get feedback on your photographs, and share your best shots with the group. 

 

*While snacks will be included, dinner will be optional and is therefore not included in the price. We're conscious that some participants may be joining us after iftar and may be likely to have the appetite for a second large meal in the same evening.
