Just like the Empire State Building is an iconic landmark in New York City, Dubai is best known for the glittering Burj Khalifa tower. It stands at an impressive 830 meters and is currently the tallest tower in the world.
This gigantic skyscraper draws visitors from around the globe who want to admire its beauty in the luxurious location of Dubai. For solo traveler, Christos, the modern, sleek architecture was the perfect backdrop to capturing some really cool photographs from his recent trip to the United Arab Emirates.
Ultimate Chic: Dubai Style
Dubai is renowned for its opulence and urban style. With its palatial world-class malls and array of glamorous bars and nightclubs, it really is the ideal destination for the young and trendy to explore.
Hitting the streets to capture the vibe himself, Christos wanted someone to come along for the ride to help him seek out the best views of the city. Our local photographer, Petra, was only too happy to show Christos the sights and used her insider’s knowledge to capture some really unique shots of him enjoying the city.
World-Class Architecture To Explore
Christos looks relaxed and casual as he strolls in the sunshine past some of the world’s most recognizable architecture.
Heading to the beach may be high on many people’s holiday wish list, and with Dubai’s sunny climate, white sand and blue skies it would be hard to resist. In his bold, red shirt, Christos cuts a striking figure against the azure sky and ocean as he checks out another of Dubai’s famous buildings, the Burj Al Arab.
However, it’s not just skyscrapers that make Dubai a stand-out destination for visitors. The city also boasts seven man-made islands made from reclaimed land, plus water parks, animal attractions, culture and cuisine in the old-world souks and markets.
Capturing Your Own Story
With so much to see and do in the glittering crown of the United Arab Emirates, it’s easy to see why Dubai attracts a lot of tourists. Its location on the Persian Gulf makes the city an ideal stopover for travelers making their way across the globe.
It’s little wonder that solo explorer Christos was keen to see Dubai for himself. He didn’t let the fact that he was travelling alone stop him from taking away some incredible photos of his adventure.
Petra stepped in with her skills as a vacation photographer to capture some really classic shots of Christos. The playful edge to her composition means that Christos will be able to look back on his time in Dubai knowing that he has some truly unique photos. The angles and perspectives are ones that he would not have been able to capture himself and compliment his smart appearance perfectly.
Local Knowledge For The Perfect Photo
As with anywhere you visit, avoiding the crowds is key to taking a successful travel photograph. There’s nothing more frustrating than sharing your view – and your photo – with a hundred other tourists all eagerly capturing the same moment.
Like solo traveler Christos, it’s likely that you want to be forefront of your travel pictures. With a local photographer at your side, you can trust they will know the best places – and time – to visit landmarks to capture your perfect shot.
