Photo walk with us!

Join Natalie in the December holidays for a family photo walk around Bur Dubai!

We would love to share our knowledge of the Bur Dubai area with your children + you.  Natalie has been photo walking and photographing this area since 2016 so makes the perfect guide. 

 It's a wonderful family day out for photography lovers with an adventurous spirit!

spice souk photo walk

During our guided group photo walk to the spice souk, we will meet at the creek where we will focus on capturing landscape shots and get warmed up with some reminders on composition, perspective and light.

 

We'll cross over the creek by abra - a wonderful experience with the opportunity to capture wide scenes as well as detailed shots of the abra itself.

On arrival at the spice souk, you'll be given a 'photo treasure hunt' to compete in your family groups!  You'll be tasked with capturing as many 'treasures' as you can and of course will receive help and guidance from Natalie along the way.  

Before heading to our final spot, we will visit the Iranian transport boats that line the creek where your family will be challenged to document a story (top secret!).

Our final stopping point will be to capture the peacefulness of sunset from a unique vantage point where our photographers will have the opportunity to capture some beautiful sunset scenes across the creek.

In each location you will receive mini photo challenges from Natalie, to help focus your minds and images. You will come home come home with a wonderful variety of images from your afternoon of photo walking!

who is it suitable for?

Our photowalks are suitable for children aged 8+ who have either been doing our classes already or who are complete beginners!  As most of you have one camera per family, you'll be working together in your family groups to capture a mixture of camera and phone shots. The photo walk is suitable for children and their parents even with little or no camera knowledge.

Notes:

- this is an adult + child activity, children under 18 joining on their own is not an option

- photowalks are done on foot, so wear trainers and be prepared for lots of walking!  We will take breaks during our walk and find somewhere to sit down to regain our energy.

- group numbers will be capped at 12 (as ideally we want to photowalk as a small group)
