All good things are dependant on some key partners that we have established during the years. We would especially like to acknowledge the following:
Grant Bishop - aka dxbluey - has lived in Dubai for 7 years, working in movies, music and media. His photography tends to focus on people, urban scenes and abstract use of light and is distinctly reportage in style. Under the blogger name dxbluey he created Dubai Daily Photo with the concept of one original photo per day posted everyday for one year exactly. The photo blog was nominated for Middle East photo blog of the year. During that year Grant took over 6,000 photos of everyday Dubai life and the blog provided a unique view on life in Dubai. Subsequent to the blog he had his first photography exhibition at DUCTAC in Dubai. For more information, see dxbluey.com
