Shetty started Photowalk Dubai with his photographer friend Anjum Vahanvati with the aim of inspiring photographers in Dubai to ‘Shoot, Share, Learn’. But what separates them from other groups? According to Shetty, Photowalk Dubai actively brings passionate photographers together to gain inspiration and constructive critique from one another. This is something he felt was lacking amongst other groups and hoped that Photowalk Dubai would fill this gap.
Recently, Photowalk Dubai caught the interest of Nikon, who is now a strong supporter of the group aiming to provide select group photographers with seminars and training at no cost.
Takashi Yoshida, Managing Director Nikon MEA FZE, comments: “At Nikon, we are passionate about photography and partnering with Photowalk Dubai is one way in which we share this passion with photography fans across the UAE.” He continues, “We are aware of the amazing talent that is available in the region and we are constantly looking for new initiatives to help nurture this talent.”
