World Future Energy Summit Exhibition

January 15th, 2012

Hey everyone!

2012 is starting with a bang!

Come check out my work at the World Future Energy Summit which will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC) in Abu Dhabi from 16-19 January.

The exhibition is hosted by Enviromena, one of the main suppliers of solar technology to Masdar, in association with Green Abu Dhabi, the arts initiative which aims to promote environmental awareness through art.

As in the last time I participated in a Green Abu Dhabi event, 30% of the proceeds from the exhibition will go to charity, including towards the Green Abu Dhabi Fund’s Mangrove Project, an initiative to help save the mangroves around Abu Dhabi.

The show will feature work by myself, Suhail Jashanmal and George Lewis.

Come check us out and support the cause if you can!

Sitting for a Portrait

December 9th, 2009

So, I was featured in The National newspaper the other day as part of a story on the elections for the Board of Directors of the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

I was in the running as a candidate, hence my being featured. I eventually pulled out of the elections for various reasons (and indeed, had done so by the time the story ran). But anyway.

If you’re interested, you can read the full story here.

The National sent a staff photographer, Ryan Carter, for a photoshoot for the story. I must say, was odd being on the other side of the lens for once. But it was great to meet and chat with Ryan and to see how he worked.

Here’s a picture from that shoot:

ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - November 24, 2009: Ziad Salloum, sits for a portrait at the Beach Rotana hotel, he is campaigning for the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce Elections. ( Ryan Carter / The National )

The picture was lit with one flash shooting through a softbox on a light stand set to camera left. I love the effect he’s made and the richness of the red curtain behind.

I highly recommend checking out Ryan’s website here for some great travel shots and some cool photos of scenes which you don’t commonly get to see in the UAE.

A Stolen Moment

September 23rd, 2009

When I was going through my photo albums sorting and choosing the pictures that would go onto my main website there were a number of shots that I enjoy immensely that nevertheless never made the final cut, for whatever reason.

Such as this stolen moment here.

I took this off one of the islands dotted around Abu Dhabi. I made a goodly number of pictures that day, but this is one of the small handful that speak to me.

I like the colours, play of light and delicacy of the unguarded gesture…

Subscriptions

September 8th, 2009

It seems the FollowSite subscriptions (through the “Subscribe/Follow” button at the bottom of each post) are proving rather unrealiable and many of you have told me that you’re not recieving updates whenever there’s a new post.

Given this problem, I’ll be removing the FollowSite application from the blog in the coming day or two to give a chance for you to switch over to the infinitely more reliable Feedburner subscription options (via both RSS and email) which you can find in the right-hand column.

Should you like, you can find out more about RSS here.

Do let me know if you continue to have problems with the subscriptions. Cheers!

Captions

August 30th, 2009

Well, I was supposed to scramble out of town for work and a few weddings, but instead I was (and it seems for the next few days will remain) bedridden with a rather strong flu (no, not H1N1, thank you) and bronchitis. The joy.

Well, the good news is that I managed to get around to doing what a number of you have requested: adding captions to the shots on my website, indicating where and when they were taken.

Enjoy!
