Bi-Weekly Photography Meetup. Theme: Product Photography

Thank you for your interest in this meetup. Please note that event details may be subject to change. Please check this page regularly for the latest information.

Our biweekly venue is The Change Initiative building in Al Barsha. Coming by metro? This video will show you how to head over to the venue from the Sharaf DG station. Traveling from the direction of Internet City? Watch this video. (You can skip ahead 1:20 if you are coming down Sheikh Zayed Road from the direction of Jebel Ali/Abu Dhabi.) Heading down SZR from Dubai? Watch this video if you don't mind paying for Salik, and this one if you want to avoid the toll.

We strongly suggest you scout out the location beforehand if you are unsure about finding it. If you need help, call the EPyC hotline ([masked]), but please note that the event starts at 7 PM sharp, and we may not be able to answer calls after that time.

There will be a minimum donation of AED 20 to cover club costs, including venue rental.

You can do anything you'd like to modify the image.
Please send us your image by email ([masked]) by 7 PM on the night before the event. To make our lives easier, please rename the files so that they have your name in them, e.g. Ahmed.JPG. We all vote on who has done the best job, and the best photo taken by an attendee gets a prize.

    It was really an amazing experience to see professionals from various industry talking and learning about photography. The presentation from Shasha was very informative. @Shasha: If its not a problem can you share the presentation file with me. It will be handy for future reference. @Organisers: Thanks to the entire team for inviting me and making my brand known.

    Hey guys! Please note that food photography will be the topic of the following biweekly meetup (June 18) and not this one. We are excited to announce that member Sasha Maddah will be talking to us this at this event about product photography, of which you might say food photography is one specialization. Please do pay attention to the description above, as it will be updated as event details are finalized.
