I’m baaaack!! Can’t believe this is my first post of 2017 . . .Oops!
If you follow me on Instagram (@aq_photographyandfilm) I posted the picture below of me on a random abandoned bathtub a couple of months ago. I happened to stumble across this location on my way to Carrefour.. random right? Its actually an unbuilt area in Dubai Sports City. The location was great! Sand, Old broken bathtub and a random tree, what more could you ask for?

I got in contact with a beautiful Russian model called Maria Alis to collaborate. She was so lovely and fun to work with. We shot in the morning for a few hours. Its a shame the weather was overcast as I would of liked a few flares and glares, but I still feel like I got good content. We turned up at the location and started shooting, very relaxed and enjoyable environment.
I shot on the Red Epic, 5K at 100fps with Carl Zeiss CP2 lenses. This was my first time using this camera and lenses. Sometimes I shy away from using bigger cameras as a videographer because its hard to be a one man band with a heavy camera when you’re not that strong. If you’ve worked with me before, I always reference shoots to being my work out for the day.
Below is the video..Enjoy!
One of my new year resolutions for 2017 is to create more personal projects for both videography and photography. So far this is my first collaborative shoot of 2017. In my defence I had another really cool outdoor shoot planned a few weeks ago on a garden rooftop, had the model booked, hair and make up artist ready and what happened?..It RAINED! Thanks Dubai!
I am updating my portfolio and I can’t wait to show you all the exciting new things i’ve been working on and Ive got a few cool things planned for this summer when i’m back in the UK so watch this space! Its beautiful when career and passion come together. If you are a model or HMua reading this and would like to collaborate? Don't hesitate to get in contact! I'm always looking for new and creative people to work with.
