Gulf Photo Plus to hold photo tour of Istanbul
Dubai, July 11, 2011
Gulf Photo Plus (GPP), a leading photography event organiser, will offer an opportunity to produce stunning travel portraits and photographs of the natural and urban landscape of Istanbul in an upcoming photo tour.
The new five-day Gulf Photo Plus "Faces & Places" photo tour of Istanbul will be hosted from November 8 to 12 by visiting international photography gurus Bobbi Lane and David Nightingale.
"We received tremendous feedback on the first photo tour to Muscat. The interest in other destinations in the region was overwhelming, so we decided to push ahead and take Faces and Places to Istanbul," said Mohamed Somji, director, Gulf Photo Plus.
"The photo tours offer a wonderful opportunity for keen photographers to combine a holiday with a learning experience designed to refine their existing skills with expert guidance, develop new techniques based on critiques and feedback from Bobbi and David."
The photo tour is a fully planned and scheduled travel photography trip including portraits, street scenes, landscape and night photography with instruction from world-class instructors to improve shooting, composition and observation techniques.
The instructors Bobbi Lane and David Nightingale are regulars in Dubai, having been involved with Gulf Photo Plus for several years.
Lane is a commercial photographer specializing in creative portraits in studio and on location. She is a dedicated photo-educator and brings more than 30 years of technical experience and innovative artistic interpretation to her fun-filled workshops.
Nightingale is a published author and creative director of Chromasia, a fine arts and commercial photography company, who works with the intelligent application of photo enhancing techniques.
"We want the participants to be able to tell a story through their photography and learn tips and tricks to get that postcard-perfect 'best' shot and that's where the instructors come in. They'll encourage individuals to get out of their comfort zone and try something new, to look at composition in a different way, and explore creativity,” said Mohamed.
Each participant in the Gulf Photo Plus Faces & Places Istanbul photo tour is guaranteed to come away with a varied portfolio of shots, comprising street photography, incredible landscapes and expressive portraits, a statement said.
Students will be encouraged to complete their learning experience with the valuable exercise of producing a photo essay of their trip to Istanbul, which will later be exhibited by Gulf Photo Plus. – TradeArabia News Service
