Stuff happens. So check this page regularly to see if the event details have been revised, or if you need to update your RSVP. One thing hasn't changed though: it's still just AED 20 if you want to join us on the evening. With that out of the way, here's what we currently have slated for Tuesday:
Discussion Topic: Selling your photos (Loy Machedo)
This week's guest speaker is Loy Machedo, Loy a branding consultant who has previously been a speaker at TEDx Dubai. He will be speaking to us about his experience with marketing. This is your chance to learn how to earn money through your photographs.
Member showcase (Adel Abdelrahman)
For this section, members show us 10 to 12 of their best shots, and answer questions about them. Want to try your hand at this in the future? Talk to an organizer.
The Tuesday tip (Ashraf Jandali)
Want advice on how to improve your photographs? Ashraf's here to help.
Photo Competition (Theme: Architecture)
Please send us up to two of your images by email ([masked]) before 7 PM the night before the event. To make our lives easier, please rename the files so that they have your name in them, e.g. Ahmed1.JPG and Ahmed2.JPG. We all vote on who has done the best job, and the winner gets a prize. We will not accept photo submissions on the day. If you don't show up, your photo will also not be eligible for a prize.
We will be meeting in Studio Attitude in Al Quoz, in the same series of warehouses as Botanica. If you need help figuring out how to get there, check out the location map (http://files.meetup.com/2552172/Studio%20Attitude%20Map.jpg), or make use of the GPS coordinates [masked],[masked]). More information on the venue can be found on their site (http://studioattitude.ae/old/) or at[masked].
We also have YouTube videos showing you how to get there from Sheikh Zayed Road, with detailed text directions posted underneath. This one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfANFgf2EkQ&feature=youtube_gdata_player) shows the way if you are coming from the direction of the World Trade Centre and Dubai Mall, and this one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWbXDzgBMrs) depicts the way from the direction of Abu Dhabi, the marina, and Al Barsha.
