        [ezcol_1half]Recently I had the privilege to do a little Q&A with FLYTOGRAPHER as part of their Photographer Q&A SERIES – NATELEE IN DUBAI

        Name: NATELEE
        Location: Dubai
        Equipment: Nikon – Camera D810, 24-70mm, 70-200mm (my favourite) and 50mm

        How long have you lived in your city?
        12 months and loving every minute of it!

        How did you come to be a photographer? Tell us a little about your background.
        Well, I’ve been taking photos since I can remember. Images have always been my way of telling a story, even from a very young age. Looking back, I never even thought of photography as a career. I mean, it’s my lifestyle.

        [/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]I had the opportunity to live in London after school and to this day, I am thankful for it. What a magnificent place to live behind the camera. Upon returning to Cape Town, I completed a few photography courses and took a chance at entering a competition for an apprentice position with ZaraZoo Photography, a well-known wedding photography company in South Africa.

        I won and my new life as a lifestyle and wedding photographer began!

        How would you describe your personal photography style?
        I think of myself as a storyteller and documentary photographer, capturing what’s happening right now, in a moment of time. In nature and stills, I always focus on light and lines. I take my time and wait for the perfect shot. When it comes to portrait photography, it’s all about capturing the moments and emotion between people.[/ezcol_1half_end]FlytographerQ&A_Natelee_0002 FlytographerQ&A_Natelee_0007 FlytographerQ&A_Natelee_0008FlytographerQ&A_Natelee_0005 FlytographerQ&A_Natelee_0018FlytographerQ&A_Natelee_0026

        Where do you find your creative inspiration?
        Sometimes, it’s as simple as the everyday things that inspire me to pick up my camera and just go with it. Other days, it’s the beauty of nature that makes my heart skip a beat. It can be love, beautiful lines, architecture, simplicity or an amazing moment between two people.

        What album is on repeat when you’re editing photos?
        “First Mind” by Nick Mulvey and “Coexist” by The XX.

        Where is your favourite place to shoot in your city and why?
        The desert. I am absolutely head-over-heels for the desert. There’s something special about the open space, calm and simplicity of it.

        What does a perfect day in your city look like?
        On cloudy days after it has rained or when the dust hangs over Dubai, the sunsets are unbelievable. I have a sunset obsession and it’s the time of day that I live to shoot for. The Middle East has some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever experienced.

        Where are your favourite places in your city to get a coffee and a cocktail?
        Any place with a view and GREAT COFFEE! Luckily in Dubai, you’re spoiled for choices. Some of my favourite coffee spots:

        And for sundowners:

        Where was the last city you travelled?
        Paris.

        If you could live anywhere in the world for one year, where would you live and why?
        Bali – it’s one of those places I can just imagine myself living. I have always dreamed about living on an island and experiencing relaxing, calm, down-to-earth living alongside some of the friendliest and kindest people.

        What do you most enjoy about shooting for Flytographer?
        People who book Flytographer are usually on a holiday, anniversary or honeymoon trip, and it’s always a happy occasion. They are relaxed and just want to have fun – that’s the perfect recipe for a beautiful photo session. The bonus is you meet couples, families and people from all over the world and each one has their own story.

        Zune and iPod: Most individuals assess the Zune in direction of the Contact, yet after watching how skinny and shockingly lower and light-weight it is, I consider it towards be a really unique hybrid that brings together qualities of both equally the Touch and the Nano. It can be exceptionally colourful and lovely OLED exhibit is a little bit smaller sized than the contact screen, but the player by itself feels Incredibly a little bit lesser and lighter. It weighs concerning 2/3 as a lot, and is appreciably lesser within width and peak, even though being specifically a hair thicker.

        The Zune concentrates upon getting a Transportable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a recreation machine. Probably in just the long run it’s going to do even far better inside all those areas, but for presently it’s a remarkable direction toward organize and hear to your tunes and films, and is with no peer within that respect. The iPod’s pros are its website viewing and purposes. If individuals good extra persuasive, maybe it is your great determination.

        Apple previously includes Rhapsody as an application, which is a superior start, however it is at present hampered by means of the incapacity to retail store locally upon your iPod, and incorporates a dismal 64kbps little bit price. If this improvements, then it will fairly negate this comfort for the Zune, but the 10 new music for every month will even now be a substantial plus in Zune Pass’ prefer.

        The Zune concentrates on getting a Portable Media Player. Not a world wide web browser. Not a video game machine. Potentially within just the long run it will do even greater within just these areas, nevertheless for by now it is really a Great way to arrange and pay attention toward your songs and movies, and is without peer inside that respect. The iPod’s advantages are its world wide web going to and applications. If those sound much more compelling, potentially it is your excellent preference.
