Default Professional Photographer - Abu Dhabi

Wanting some family photos taken, would rather use someone that people here have had a decent experience with, any suggestions?

If you get quotes that resemble Millhouse's tiling: I know an excellent professional snapper in UK who'd probably be happy to come over. Using Millhouse’s calcs, I reckon you’d be looking at:


- Fly a UK photographer I know over with Emirates: GBP 360
- 2 nights in a 5 star hotel with breakfast: (free, he can stay with me)
- 2 days labour money: GBP 300 (might be a bit more)
- materials: depends what you want
- 2 hookers for the boy: (negotiable)
- 2 days worth of beer and curry: GBP 60 (seem fair)

Let me know.

I have a very good friend in the UK who is an excellent photographer...can put you in touch if you think it will cost less than a locally based snapper.

I know a couple of action photographers...but no-one that does still life.

Ooops, sorry, did I laugh out loud?

Hi Brains,

My business partner back in the UK is looking at coming out as we want to shoot some fashion stuff out here- he's a fashion photographer but I am sure would be happy to have some extra funding to a trip out, check out his website www.jameslightbown.co.uk He has done portraits etc before which aren't shown on his site. He is a fantastic photographer!

If you're interested then pm me and I'll put you in touch
