Dubai-Gulf Photo Plus 2009

The view from the Virgin Flight to Dubai.......

Gulf Photo Plus is the biggest, not to say best photographic gathering in the Middle East.

This year there has been a very impressive line up of some of the biggest names in the industry, including Chase Jarvis, David Hobby, Joe McNally, David Nightingale, Chris Hurtt, Bobby Lane, Zack Arias, Asim Rafiqui, Robin Nichols, Cliff Moutner, Carol Dragon to name but a few.

Truly THE place to learn and share knowledge

You never know exactly how it is going to work out at a Workshop, and GPP 2009 was no exception

I need not have worried.

The two classes I have worked with have been lots of fun, willing and eager to learn, and enthusiastic too

A good job too as it rained big time on the first day

Here is a picture that one of the attendees Mark Kunz shot of Natalie when it rained and rained and rained

I would upload a video too but the internet is sooooooooooooooo slow.

He shot it on a Canon 5D 200th sec, F6.3, using 2 Profoto 7b's

One with a beauty dish at full power, the other with a kill spill, buried waaaaaaaaaay in the background sheltered under a overhang, keeping it nice and dry

I will post more material from this great event on my return to the UK

It is a cracker isn't it?

GPP is a bit of a secret in Europe

People don't know what they are missing

Safe travels to you too mate
