Workshop Date

What's Covered

Capture the essence of two desert locations with the assistance of a professional photographer. Our walk will take us to the Al Qudra desert, followed by Al Qudra lakes. Gain exposure to the colours, textures, flora, fauna and atmosphere of the desert as the sun sets.

 

Exploring the area with your guide, you will be set some photo challenges, aimed at presenting a new way of seeing things. You will come home with a variety of images from your afternoon.

 

At the end of the walk you will be invited to join our Facebook group set up for attendees of our photowalks where we encourage you to share and comment on each other's images in the group.

 

 

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.


Important!: You will meet the instructors at the meeting point then drive in your own car to the shooting locations in a convoy with the rest of the group. 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. Please also remember to have a full tank of fuel!

 

*The the desert location is weather dependent. If the wind is over 20km/hour or too blustery on arrival at our desert meeting point, a more shaded spot in Al Qudra lakes will be substituted as an alternative.
