I have been carrying external hard drives in my suitcase and in my hand baggage, including in and out of Qatar, Oman, KSA, Kuwait, Yemen, for the past 10 years without ever being stopped anywhere.
Just copy your photos onto an external drive and stick it in your case or hand baggage. It is no big deal.

I recommend that you subscribe to a VPN service anyway.

Don't mean to hijack this thread, but I've got a PS4 that I want to bring over to Abu Dhabi, is it ok to put it in my suitcase? Or should I ship it?

Or would I be better off buying another one here?(Id rather not do that)?

Probably fine in your suitcase. I'm shipping my PS3, and buying a PS4 out there once I finish all the games I'm half way through...

Take it on as hand luggage if you are that bothered. We did that with the xbox

It'll have to go in my suitcase I think. I've got a laptop to take over too, hoping that would cause any issues as I need it for work.
