Nat Geo to hone local photography talent
Abu Dhabi, June 17, 2014
National Geographic Abu Dhabi (NGAD) recently organised a photography workshop in Dubai.
A number of photography enthusiasts attended the workshop hosted by National Geographic photographer and ‘I am Nat Geo Photographer’ judge, Laura El Tantawy, at Gulf Photo Plus in Al Quoz.
The event marks the mid-season of NGAD’s newest series, ‘I am Nat Geo Photographer’.
An entirely local production, ‘I am Nat Geo Photographer’ was shot in the UAE and features eight contestants from countries in the Mena and Levant region.
Throughout the six-part series, contestants compete against each other through a series of tasks that take them across the UAE, using their creative and photographic abilities to avoid elimination at the end of each episode.
During the workshop, El Tantawy shared her expertise with the attendees, giving them tips on how to take better portrait pictures.
The photographers were then set a challenge, echoing a similar portrait challenge from the ‘I am Nat Geo Photographer’ series, to test their nearly-learnt skills. El Tantawy then shared her professional feedback and advice on the images taken.
All workshop attendees were presented with a certificate of completion by National Geographic Abu Dhabi.
‘I am Nat Geo Photographer’ airs every Wednesday on National Geographic Abu Dhabi at 9pm (Saudi) and 10pm (UAE). The riveting semi-final episode will be telecast on June 18, when the judges will pick their three finalists.-TradeArabia News Service
