My site came to life, as I have grown an interest in car photography, of cars in all shapes and sizes, over the last few years. Using my trusty Sony NEX7 and iPhone to provide news, photos and views on motoring in Dubai and the UAE.


Whether it is new car launches, motoring events, Carclubs, local businesses or motoring guides, this blog will aim to get the photos to you.

New Mini

I started up photography when I moved to Dubai over 3 years ago, thanks to some great advice from my friend Gerald Donovan (you can check out his work on www.05.ae) initially with landscapes and architecture and then soon drifted towards car photography.

There are few, if any, motoring blogs in Dubai, which given the amount of rare and exotic cars here, was a surprise.


I have owned many cars, and I will admit a strong bias towards Mini’s (both classic and new) I have driven a fair variety of models and makes.

Ferrari 458 Italia GT

This does not make me an expert in no way at all, but just my honest views and opinions which I’m sure some will agree with some will not.
