A Week In Dubai

I was wary of going to Dubai as a photographer as I have read stories of photographers being imprisoned for taking shots of the wrong thing. However, what I discovered was far from the police state I imagined. Only once was I politely told photography wasn’t allowed (inside the mall of the emirates), in London’s equivalent locations I have been stopped countless times. The western media often exaggerate stories about tourists being arrested in Dubai. In reality the beach area is essentially a futuristic Benidorm, with nothing to overtly tell you you’re in a conservative Muslim country, tourists wear bikinis and shorts and eat beachside chain restaurants just like any other resort.
