    Please note the 6th Training session is on Monday 1st April, at More Cafe, DIFC

    The training will start at 7 pm and end at 9 pm... I have mentioned the time in the meet up as 6 45 pm - 9 15 pm... the additional 15 mins for those want to come early or stay late to ask questions related to photography...

    We believe the location More Cafe is a preferred location for training, but to make it feasible for the Cafe, please do order food and coffee, or we will not have such a wonderful place for long...

    We also know the projected image from the projector was small and those sitting at the back, were having difficulty hearing me... both these issues will be rectified in the next session.

    We will be heading into compositions... If you all have any images that you aspire to click some day, send it to my email address [masked], and we will talk about the pictures...

    In photography, the difference between an inage and great image is the ability to control depth of field. Which makes the next session (Thursday 28th Feb) the most important session. Do come, because all future sessions will depend on what you learn in the session on Thursday.

      Raat gayi, baat Gayi. Without a student's attitude, no knowledge can be gained. And to maintain a student's attitude, the Teacher's rebuke should be taken as motivation to perform better next time :-)

    If you are driving down on SZR towards dubai,
    1. After Mall of Emirates Interchange,
    2. Take Al Manara exit D 65, keep right at fork to continue towards Al Manara rd, If you are driving down on SZR towards Abudhabi,
    1. After 2nd Interchange (Dubai refreshements interchange),
    2. Take Al Manara exit D 65, keep left at fork and take exit 42 to continue towards Al Manara rd, 3. Reach the Signal (T junction), Take free right, and continue down the road.
    4. Al Serkal Avenue should come on your right side. Ask for Shelter inside Al Serkal Avenue. Warehouse no 30. Suggestion: If you find a parking right outside Al Serkal Avenue, please park!!!

    Please contact Jason:[masked]

    3 · February 24, 2013

    • Rajesh P.

      Perfect instructions. Just add exit no. 43 (route/rd. D65) Thanks.

      February 24, 2013

  • Jason

    Those who are coming for the first time. Look up 'Shelter, Al Quoz, Dubai' on google maps. Shelter is in Al Serkal Avenue in warehouse no 30.

    February 23, 2013

    • Rajesh P.

      To reach AL Serkal Avenue :: Coming from Abudhabi or Sharjah, on Shk. Zyd Rd, take exit 43 (AL MANARA Rd.) and drive down straight until u reach d signal junction. Now take right and drive for about 500 - 600 metres. AL Serkal avenue is on ur right. You won't see Shelter from d rd. coz it is INSIDE. After entering AL Ser Ave, take 1st right, 1st left and you'll find Shelter...

      February 24, 2013

    • Rajesh P.

      Pls. Make sure you take AL MANARA Rd. And go towards the Industrial area side which is BEHIND TIMES SQUARE. Pls. Do not go towards Jumeirah side !
