The Hype

GPP 2016 in Dubai with Tim Wallace

Article text
This month saw Tim Wallace in Dubai as one of the lead instructors for GPP 2016.
The Gulf Photo Plus Event takes place each year and attracts thousands of people from across the region and also across the World to attend seminars and workshops as well as participate in live shoot events as well as enjoying the Expo that runs alongside throughout the week.

During the GPP 2016 event Tim held several classes;
The Power of Amazing Light - Class Based Talk (90mins)
The Art of Automotive (Car) Photography - Intermediate (2 day Workshop)
The Art of Automotive (Car) Photography - Advanced (2 Day Workshop)
Inspire - Innovate - Lead | A Business Seminar - Seminar

Tim -"This was my first time at GPP and I was invited earlier last year to attend and take part in this great event. I have to say that GPP is one of the best events of this kind that I have ever been involved with and the whole week is super organised which is a very good thing for people like me that are teaching and training because with seminars and live car shoots over days to complete there is a lot involved!"

"Over the course of the very intensive week I held several events as well as two sets of live car shoots, each lasting two days each covering lighting and photography from the studio to out on location with two different groups of people at differing levels. I had the pleasure of meeting some truly amazing people and making some new friends along the way, when your working with a group over two days you form relationships and get to know people, this is really important to me when I'm training as I think it helps to get to know people and understand their needs and aspirations so that you can help them achieve those within that time together."

"I would also like to thank GPP themselves for all their help in getting all the equipment that I required for these classes as well as managing to organise me over $3m worth of subject cars to shoot, epic job guys!
Finally I have to say a huge thank you to my assistant in Dubai, Feroz Khan, who was quite simply amazing each and every day and was very much the glue that held our hectic and sometimes overwhelming schedule"

Some Great Feedback we would like to share

Guy Source - I just wanted to write and say how I much I enjoyed Tim's class on Saturday and Sunday this week.
I've always loved cars and photography so putting the two together is quite something for me.
Tim had some really great stories about his life and is was fascinating to hear about his work and photography career to date.
I liked the way in which Tim worked, the way he set up the first car on each day in terms of lighting, position etc. The second car, we had to approach ourselves as a group which really helped us learn where we were going right or wrong.
I think I can truly speak for all in the class in that we have all progressed and learnt a great deal in a relatively short space of time and that it was worth every dirham!
Now I might need to turn this hobby of mine into something more serious, Tim has encouraged me and I am looking forward to his 'Inspired Business' seminar on Thursday.
Special thanks also goes to Feroz for being a top right hand man to Tim and us all on both days. I do hope to see Tim back in Dubai again after this years GPP event.
Thanks to all at GPP who helped organise this. What you are all doing is great.
