The Photo Club is an online hub for creative people with a passion for photography and is founded by family photographers Natalie Robinson and Lianne Dawes.
Based in Dubai, we intend to inspire and support you to learn photography through our workshops and photowalks.
We also run a Project 365 (one photo a day) on Instagram @thephotoclubuae... #365NotesToYou
Meet The Team
Natalie's background is in learning and development; previously working with the Arcadia Group and a London-based law firm in various training and graduate recruitment positions. After the birth of her second baby in 2010 her interest in photography blossomed with the main aim of being able to capture better photos of her (then) two children. Natalie now has three children ages 10, 8 and 5 and is a completely self-taught photographer. She took her first paid client shoot in 2012 and has built her business from there.
Lianne has been a photographer for nearly 10 years. After graduating from University in the UK with a degree in photography, she moved to Dubai and studied for a degree in Psychology whist working as a nursery teacher and ABA therapist for children with Autism and developmental delays. She then went on to combine her two loves and established her very successful business, dinkyheart photography, in 2011. Lianne became a mama to little Ede in March 2016.
We feel that our styles compliment each other well; and when you think that between us we have 4 children, a photography degree, 10 years in learning and development, experience as a nursery teacher, full time successful photography businesses and work with our cameras and children every day - running a workshop seemed a completely natural next step that merges all of these attributes.
