Since early 2016 I’ve been based in Dubai teaching Photography and Lightroom for Gulf Photo Plus. In my time there I met a lot of wonderful people, including this gentleman, Nino.

Nino has to be one of the sweetest, most genuine and caring people I’ve met in sometime. He was an amazing person to work with. He’s also got quite the eye as a photographer, be sure to check out his Instagram @nino_consorte88.

I had the joy of photographing him and a few others at GPP before I headed back to the states a few weeks ago. I thought it would be fun to share the series of images. So here we go!

I had something specific in mind when I asked if I could photograph him, and we did that in the first several shots. A few minutes later he came back to me and wanted to take some with his cap, and that’s where things got silly! Thank you Nino for being awesome!
