Nick Arundel’s images of famous Dubai landmarks regularly feature on the likes of TimeOut Dubai, What’s On and LovinDubai.

We asked him how he manages to take great shots again and again that are attractive to such a large following.

  1. Plan everything ahead.
  2. Use the PhotoPills app. It’s extremely useful for identifying where the sun will rise and set so helping with the composition of the shot in advance when time is of the essence – especially useful in the Middle East when these events can happen so quickly.
  3. NiSi app helps for long exposure photography with ND filters. Perfect for stretching out clouds or sea when its too light and you need a longer exposure.
  4. Use a remote control. Simply, a remote ensures no shake when you least want it and you can easily review and look at pictures on the phone immediately to see how the images look when you’re far from the camera.
