What our clients are saying about our workshops
“ Dany is one of the best photography instructors and workshop leaders I have had the privilege to work with. He really goes the extra mile for his students, and his workshops are well organized and loads of fun. Both my composition and my post production skills have really improved since participating in Dany's courses, and he continues to be a great mentor, generously giving his time to look at my work and provide feed back. And of course his own images are amazing!!!“
“ Could there be a better Christmas Gift than attending a rooftopping workshop with Dany Eid and Daniel Cheong? For an avid landscaper such as myself, I can’t think of a better way to spending my weekend.
If you’re looking to shoot Dubai from a whole new perspective or to learn a bunch of tips and tricks of how to do it best, this workshop is for you. We started very early Friday morning in a stunning terrace of Shangri-La hotel that overlooks a spectacular knot of roads leading to the most iconic buildings you can think of in Dubai. We had clear skies that day and a bit of typical haze, but it created almost a low-hanging stunning looking cloud of soft light wrapping around the buildings and Dany helped out with the settings for how to best capture the ever elusive sunburst between the buildings. The location couldn’t have been chosen better for sunrise and even when the sun was already high there were a lot of interesting angles to shoot.
Fast forwarding to the second location which is a place that I haven’t seen many people shoot at that time - Central Park Towers DIFC, I could’t be happier to discover some new angle of our city that has been indeed photographed from every corner at this point. We got there at 4 pm and had plenty of time to asses the situation and find our vision. Even though we were a relatively big group of people, nobody was fighting for the shot and everyone settled down nicely for their own picture to be captured. Daniel was sharing his techniques of capturing enough photos for the perfect digital blend, while Dany tirelessly perfected everyone’s shot and pointed to the details that might have been overlooked. Any question that had arisen that evening been answered with 100% proficiency and it didn’t matter if it was a career advice or any kind of gear question. We finished the night by heading to the coffee shop where we all shared our challenges and successes of the photographic session. One of the best things that happened that night was that we walked in as strangers, but left as friends.
Next day we drove though thick fog to the classroom location to enhance our knowledge with some photoshop techniques. Daniel showed us on the examples of his own photos how to do some basic and quite advanced editing to achieve the best results, while Dany took photos of students. It is amazing to learn from such experienced people as Daniel and to be able to ask him questions about his workflow, and get first-hand advice on the editing of the challenging shots. At the end of the session we took a group photo, which is always a nice visual memory to keep.
The evening of the second day we had second sunset shoot and man, it didn’t disappoint. I’ve been in Dubai more than 6 years and I have never seen it being foggy at sunset yet. Until that very evening of our second shoot. Universe, I mean Dany and Daniel, just handed me a golden ticket of one in (who knows, maybe) lifetime opportunity to be above the clouds when the sun goes down and shoot Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Lakes Towers being wrapped by fog. That location being the Cayan tower, is a dream place for any cityscape shooter. You can literally walk 360 degrees on the last floor of that building and get any view your heart desires. Only few people have access to this spot, so if you want to witness it with your own eyes, this workshop is your unique opportunity to do that. Well, what can I say? It was stunning and overwhelming. The fog was majestical, we were all feeling as if we were present at the birth of the Universe.
All in all, I must say it was one of the most memorable weekends of last year, so if you’re looking to do something mindblowingly amazing and shake up your routine shooting envy-producing stunning photos for your social media, I highly recommend you join Dany and Daniel for their next workshop. Stop making excuses, just do it”

“ Dany is a great instructor. He is down to earth and made an effort to spend time with every person attending the workshop. He was also very patient answering questions, giving new ideas and even explaining camera settings and photography techniques not relating to the workshop. Definitely worth the money! “
“ With DANY , photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… The camera to him is like an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.
He always tells us that The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words. I’m really enjoying his workshops and company such a talented humble person you’ll ever see or find , a lot of successful DANY “

I recommend his workshops and I hope to have the chance to shoot with him again “
“ I attended Dany's October 2017 Iceland workshop October 10th-20th and I can confidently say it couldn't have gone better. Everything from the pickup to the transportation and choice of lodging was too of the line. The education I received during the workshop as well as the opportunity to see such beautiful landscapes has made me a return customer. I will definitely be attending future workshops “
“ I have been following Dany on instagram since around 5 years. I was astonished by his amazing photos and was hoping to meet him one day. I finally managed to the join both, the October 2017 workshop in Iceland and the September 2018 workshop in Florence-Tuscany. Dany was both a mentor and a guide. He helped me to prepare well before the Trips (what camera accessories to get as well as what kind of clothes to wear...). Moreover, his knowledge, skills, support and personality made me feel a part of the team. The workshops was very helpful and well organized. I really learned a lot from his trips and I am planning to join future workshops with him to enjoy my passion for photography “
“ I attended several workshops with Dany. He is an amazing photographer, teacher and person. I personally went with him to Lebanon, I visited hidden spots and learned so many photography tips & tricks. I had so much fun that I’m intending to join the new coming workshops in Tuscany and Iceland. The unique thing in Dany’s workshops is that he goes the extra mile to try and please every single participant “
“ What I love about Dany, aside from his outstanding talent and up to date knowledge, is his passion for photography that doesn’t seem to have been ruined by being a professional. He still shoots with the passion and enthusiasm of an amateur and he extends such passion, joy and energy to everyone around him. Dany is also generous in sharing knowledge and experiences and is a very good Instructor. He has a kind heart and I admire how humble and funny he is. I went with Dany to Iceland on one of his photography workshops and I proudly call him a friend since then. ”
“ I booked a private two-day workshop focusing on the desert with Dany which was great fun. Dany is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and importantly, happy to share his knowledge! If you're looking to improve your photography in a relaxed, fun environment I highly recommend booking a workshop with Dany. ”
“ I have had the good fortune to attend two workshops with Dany. If you’re still debating whether to take the photography workshop, don’t delay and book it now, you will not be disappointed. From the beginning through to the end Dany offered endless support, advice and guidance. He is very good at assessing the needs of each individual and works very hard to be able to help them learning new or improving photographic skills. In addition, he does it in such a warm and friendly manner, that by the time you leave the workshop, you feel like you are old friends! I am now very excited about the opportunity to go on a few photo tours with him. If it’s anything to go by from my previous experience, I am expecting it to be both fun and a good learning experience ”

The idea of visiting my dream destination with such accomplished photographers was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I enjoyed every aspect of this trip. The careful and detailed logistic preparation by Dany and the informative and personal training sessions on digital blending by Daniel along with the constant guidance and helpful tips by both Dany and Daniel during the trip.
This trip was worth every penny that I spent.

And most importantly learned a lot about photography from the professionals. To see the enthusiasm and the determination to get certain shots was something I truly appreciated as well ”
“ Dany Eid is one of the biggest inspirations and influences on my photography to date. I first started following his work through Instagram and when i saw he was running a workshop in Dubai, it was the perfect opportunity to meet someone I had admired for so long. Dany more than lived up to my expectations as he is an extremely humble person and his infectious personality rubs off on everyone who meets him. Not only a fantastic photographer but also a fantastic teacher who is willing to share all of his techniques and tips. I have now been on 2 workshops with Dany, "Rooftopping in Dubai" and "Heavenly Jordan". I would highly recommend anyone looking to take their photography skills to the next level to look no further.
