Time To Get Snap Happy!

The holiday season is fast-approaching and soon we’ll all be racking our brains trying to source the perfect gift for our loved ones. Just like the art of photography, the art of gift-giving needs some inspiration. As Dubai’s only dedicated photography centre, it’s only right that we give you a sneak-peak into what we’ll be buying our friends and family this year.


Gift Idea #1: Get inspired and hone your photography skills under the expert guidance of a world-renowned photographer.

The MENA region’s longest running international photography festival returns February 10-17, 2017. We’re flying in 12 of the world’s leading photographers for the 8-day event, which promises to be our biggest and best edition to date. With dozens of workshops to choose from, there’s something for every area of interest and skill level. Want to photograph Sheikh Zayed Mosque under the expert instruction of lighting genius David Hobby? Or how about amplifying your food photography game? Los Angeles-based photographer Matt Armendariz leads three workshops for all skill levels. Enjoy our special Early Bird Offer— get 10% off GPP Photo Week 2017 bookings until Dec 5.

Gift Idea #2: Protect photographic essentials while complementing your style.

Using only premium materials, such as full-grain leather and waxed canvas, ONA is well-known for their classy, handcrafted leather bags. Designed for and inspired by creative professionals, the interior can be adjusted to suit the photographer’s needs. It can also be used as a regular bag. Here are some of our favourites. Shop the extensive range at GPP.

These “polaroid” style cameras let you capture important moments and memories which print on the spot! Alternatively, go old school and shoot your images on film. Lomography Diana cameras let you easily take timeless and dramatic photos on film, for the original Instagram look! Shop the extensive range at GPP.


Gift Idea #4: Step up your Instagram game!

We’re all fond of documenting our daily lives through photography. Book your loved one into one of our most popular and fun workshops, “An Introduction to Mobile Photography” led by Kate Hailey. Welcoming all smartphones, we’ll teach you the essentials of composition and how to use light to your advantage. You’ll also gain a practical knowledge of the leading editing apps, how they function and how they make your images pop! We’re offering the readers of Sassy Mamas Dubai an exclusive 10% off all styles until Dec 5. Add the promo-code “SASSYMAMASDXB” when placing your order online.
