  • If you’re shooting with a camera, we recommend you bring 1 lens with a focal length of around 35mm or wider. If you don’t have a lens that wide, bring one that you do have⏤your instructor will teach you how to work with it. 
  • A spare battery, or battery pack charger if you’re shooting with your phone. 
  • Water/snacks.
  • A thirst for adventure. Please pack light and bring all of your belongings and gear in one small camera bag. We will be moving around constantly and thus large camera bags and lots of gear will be cumbersome. 

Meeting point: We will meet at the car park next to Last Exit - You can put "Last Exit Al Qudra" in to Google Maps to reach the exact meeting location.


Please note: We will meet at the meeting point with our cars and drive to our own cars to the shooting locations in a convoy. Whilst we will not be doing off-roading it is strongly recommended that you have a car which is suitable to be driven on hard sand, as we will be leaving the road in some places to reach our shooting destinations. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we cannot share cars under any circumstances.
