Salt Studio will organize an unforgettable photo shoot that will keep amazing memories for a lifetime. We will fulfill your Arabian dream: the choice of any outfit from the wardrobe of the studio, professional makeup, amazing hairstyle. You will look fantastic!

№1 Desert


The desert is one of the most popular places for photo and video shooting. Just imagine: an extraordinary landscape, a bright contrast between the sky and the sand, wind blowing hair and flowing dress in the background of amazing dunes. You will be delighted!


Thanks to more than a dozen photo shoots in the desert, experienced Salt Studio photographers are ideal guides and will also help in choosing the right place. We know exactly where the most beautiful places are.


№2 Beach


The easiest way to get impressive photos is to take photos on a snow-white beach. This is one of the few places in the Arab Emirates where a photo shoot permit is not required, so do not miss the chance to capture an unforgettable vacation int the background of crystal clear water and blue sky.


We recommend choosing a morning time for a shooting - this time there are fewer people and more likely that strangers will not get into the frame.


Do you want to take photos on the beach even more exciting? Think about additional accessories. It can be unusual glasses, a beautiful hat or, for example, unusual jewellery.


After a photo shoot, you will probably want to relax and have a picnic. So grab a blanket and a fruit basket with you.


№3 Old city 

If you are tired of the modern world and you would prefer to hold a photo session in a secluded place, then Bastakia is your ideal solution. Its ancient streets are filled with measured rhythm and they are immersed in the era of the last century. 


This area is full of the history and culture of the UAE. Every corner or yard is rich with authentic details.


We fell in love with this location because it is  always cool in the narrow maze- streets of this mini-town even on the hottest day, but at night, it’s so beautifully illuminated with colourful lights that you would like to pass through again – it looks absolutely different in the darkness! 


Walking along the tangled streets of the old city, one can unknowingly feel like a character of the Arab folk tale “Aladdin and His Magic Lamp”.
