B-Boys in Dubai

I was very luck to get the chance to attend a workshop with legendary magazine photographer Joe McNally this week in Dubai. The workshop focused on lighting for portraits, and the wealth of information Joe shared with us was amazing.
If I had planned to have to shoot anything it would have been something to do with hip hop, and to my surprise our models where hip hop dancers from a local dance school in Dubai run by Mofdi, a Moroccan/French choreographer . Here are my favorite images I made during the workshop.

All I said was "Jump" and Mofdi did.

Mofdi and Titiana

Mofdi shot with one of the nicest lenses I've used, the canon 85mm 1.2
Omar from Algeria is another dancer in the group.

Next I'm off to Cairo for a photojournalism workshop...stay tuned.
