SPECIAL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS
Simon and Omar love to go out and use their cameras to capture interesting moments. MOBIPIXUAE joined them by offering weekly mobile photography classes for 3 months to have fun and help guide them in any way possible. Below are some of their amazing work!
Simon is 21 years old and has Down’s Syndrome. He comes from the UK but currently lives with his family in Dubai. Simon took his first photographs when he was 7, using a Polaroid i-Zone (a novelty kids camera) he had been given as a Christmas present. Limited though it was, it sparked Simon’s interest in taking photos and was soon replaced with a Panasonic automatic. He has progressed through a series of automatic cameras to the Nikon bridge camera he currently uses. Simon takes his camera wherever he goes and his albums are an eclectic mix of family, friends & Masai villagers; African big game and family pets; Grand Mosques & small stone churches nestling in the Scottish Highlands. Simon is working to develop the creative aspects of his photography.
Omar Zuhair is an 18 year old student of Rashid Centre. He has Global Delay and is academically challenged. Photography is a very recent discovery for him. Since it doesn't requiring any particular reading or numerical skills, he feels this is something he can do , enjoy and produce results. Thanks to mobipixuae Omar has found a new passion and a way of expressing himself.
