I enjoyed being able to immediately go out and try the lesson Jay just taught, and having our pictures critiqued immediately! Jay's classes began this photo journey in my life and I'm so glad I started it there in Abu Dhabi!

Once, I was also a beginner like you

It was early 90s. My photos were disappointing. I tried to learn on my own. But my progress was so painfully slow. I was not even sure if I was doing it right.

Almost about to quit, I took a distance learning program (this was decades before YouTube and Zoom). That was when my photography improved rapidly. Finally, there was someone to point me in the right direction. That's how I succeeded and eventually became a full time photographer.

You deserve to know better

25 years ago, I began to teach photography. In 2011, I shifted to Abu Dhabi and opened my photo studio. Photography workshops then were either expensive inspirational talks, or cheap but lacking.


So, aside from serving the photography needs of entrepreneurs and businesses in UAE, I decided to offer classes as well.  People who want to get into photography should not suffer the same slow progress I had when I started.

Deep inside you are naturally creative

I patterned my workshops on the most effective way I learned to shoot - step by step in an organised manner.


When you understand how your medium works, creativity will come out naturally. The technology just gets in the way at times.​ And this is where I come in. To make the camera and photography easier to understand and do. So you can grow as a photographer faster. To enjoy the hobby, not stressed by it.
