Luxury Photoshoot at Burj al Arab

Luxury is everywhere in Dubai.  We had the honor of working with the lovely Carlotta Conca ( during her stay at the Burj al Arab.

Luxury at Burj al Arab

Last week, we received an email from Carlotta and asked us if we’d like to join her in her stay at the Burj al Arab to capture her stay there through photography and video. I mean, who would say no to that? It’s the one and only Burj al Arab! So, we made plans for the shoot and took with us our sister company, The Lipstick Makeup Institute, to join us to do the hair and the makeup.

We got to the hotel and was greeted by glass doors and gold embellishments all over the facility. Calm music was playing with a whiff of floral perfume encompassed the lobby. The team was escorted to Carlotta’s hotel room and immediately unpacked our things so we could start the shoot as soon as possible.

We first went to the Library where the huge snooker table was at and then we went to the beach area.


It was a hot summer’s day at Dubai but the team didn’t let the sun beat us. Together with the photographer, our videographer also captured some beautiful shots for Carlotta’s blog while the makeup artist stood by to check whether or not Carlotta needed to retouch.

When we finished the shoot, we went back to Carlotta’s room to cool down a bit and had some snacks and drinks before we left the wonderful hotel.

As soon as we got back to the studio, the editors started editing the photos so that it’ll be ready as soon as possible. Thankfully, we had a lot of amazing shots so there were no issues choosing which are the best. The next day, Carlotta came back to the studio to have a look at the photos and she was very pleased with the results.

Soraya and Her Muses prepare for the runway


The first Friday after the Ramadan Holidays, June 22 2018, we collaborated with a couple of fabulous designers, SORAYA B. COUTURE and VAROIN MARWAH at VII DUBAI in Conrad Hotel. In cooperation with Fashion TV, our students from the Lipstick Makeup Institute created the looks for the models before they marched their way into the runway. As the YH team documented the chaos backstage.

The YH Team captured the transformation of the models from their casual wear to the beautiful creations of Soraya and Varoin.

Beautiful muses emerge to the main stage with a mixture of blinding gold highlights and fuschia pink cheeks Avant Garde looks.

This is it!


With the guidance of one of the Lipstick Makeup Institute’s teachers and coordinator, the students were challenged to finish their makeup look within 10-15 mins per model in their first ever fashion show as the boys captured precious moments of it.


It was a jam-packed show. The models adorning the designs by Soraya and Varoin gleamed on the cat-walk.


The models owned the stage as they felt so confident in their ensamble. Shining bright with Soraya’s gowns and make up that gave them confidence to hold their heads up high.

We are so pleased to of been involved in  this Creative magazine shoot  with the weekend magazine Al khaleej.

The Team from The Lipstick Make Up Institute managed the make up and The Team from YH Studios did the style  and the design of our creative magazine shoot cover.
The 80’s theme to spice things up a little and give the readers something different.

If I could do a project like this every day I would because its exciting and creative

Everyone pulls together and supports each other.

We actually involved one of our students from The Lipstick Make up institute– Zouha. She was in her final week of The International Platinum Media Make up course and was a great project for her to exit with.

Especially as this was a great attribute to her portfolio that YH Studios made for her.

Make up and photography are just the best combination.

These two Go together like a bird and a feather. Dream Team.

We would not get projects like this if we didn’t have the 2 companies.
We all strive to be on the front cover and finally here we did. Hope you all like the creativity and style of the cover.

Kids Beach Fashion Photoshoot

Its such a pleasure to shoot with these lovely kids. They are just so so cute.

We are asked to do this shoot from a company in India. They found us on the internet and loved our work.

So on this front we were very happy too. I decided to break the shoot in to 2 separate parts. One on The Palm Jumeirah at sunset. The client sent me some photos of a kind of dream state backlit subject so I thought that would be ideal. In fact it was as I caught them perfectly.

We just love working with children. After nearly 29 years from my start of loving photography. I have mastered the key elements of getting the best from my clients. No matter how small they are!

I guide them in a way that they don’t really know that they are being asked. I let them play and capture them at their most natural.

This is really when you get the best shots . Have a look at these photos and tell me what you think? We would love all your input.

These kids are so beautiful and look so good in the clothes. The client was  so very happy with the shots as its shows his clothes off so lovely. In fact its so lovely to see the boys wearing pink.  They are so sweet.

Our sister company The Lipstick make Up Institute pampered the kids. They put lipgloss on them. Gel in the boys hair and make them feel like little film-stars. We had a video made too so they felt really special.  They were so cute. On the video the kids had to shout, ” We love One Friday”. The little one could not say it properly. Was so cute, honestly. Makes one want to get married and have my own!

Have a look at these beautiful pictures.


photoshoot for Valentines

Hello everyone

We all need a Valentines day Photoshoot! Its that time of year again where all the ladies and gents become so romantic and show one another just how they much we mean to each other.

You know us humans are strange creatures, we get stuck into routines and every day life takes over and we forget to show each other just how important we are.  We shouldn’t though. Time passes too quickly. Before you know it we are old and time has disappeared.


Its good that we have such occasions to give us a little nudge. A nudge in the right direction to bring out the romantic side of us.


For those of us lucky enough to have that significant other in their life. Now is the time to spoil them.



المملكة المتحدة الزفاف تبادل لاطلاق النار مع ياسمين حسين

 المتحدة للقيام تبادل لاطلاق النار الزفاف. كما هو الحال مع أي مكان في العالم، لذلك من الصعب الحصول على شخص ما أن تفعل شيئا المهنية وموثوقة ومتسقة. أنا كل هذه يسرني جدا أن أقول. سنوات من الممارسة مع التصوير.

حتى سمعتي العائدات لي، وأنا سعيد أن أقول!

في الصباح على الرغم من قلبي لم تغرق لكيري ولي كما فتحت السماء. لم لكن ليس لديهم ثقة في الطقس البريطاني. ومن التغييرات في قطرة من قبعة وكنت الاعتماد على هذا! صحيح أن كلامي فعلت وحصلنا على بعض الطلقات مذهلة من البحيرة والبجع فقط قرر أن يطير معا وهذا مجرد خلق الكمال الأصلي النار الزفاف. فقط ما أحب!

وأنا أحاول أن تجلب نوعا من الشعور التحرير في تبادل لاطلاق النار. عملاء يعتقدون أنهم يريدون التقليدي حقا لأن هذا هو ما يجعلها أكثر إثارة للاهتمام. ونحن دائما نعتقد اننا نعرف ما نريد ولكن عندما يقدم لنا شيئا مختلفا قليلا ثم، عادة، نحن نحب ذلك. وليس لأننا لم نكن نريد ذلك في المقام الأول. لمجرد أننا لم نفهم ذلك أو تخيل كيف سيكون. مرة واحدة في سياق ذلك الحين ونحن عموما مثل ذلك.

أنا أحب واحدة من كيري مع السيجارة تتدلى من فمها. في يوم تمنيت فعلا أن كنت قد أحضرت معي سترة جلدية معي وزوج من الأحذية. كيري يمكن أن يرتديها لهم. ان اطلاق النار لكنت قد حصلت كانت "الأشرار". ان الزي يكون لائقا للأي #nightclub في المملكة المتحدة أو دبي!

ذكرني تبادل لاطلاق النار لمجلة كنت أعمل forin دعا شلتنهام كوتسوولد أسلوب "أنا أطلق النار على نموذج جميل في جماعة مشابهة جلس على كرسي مع جاك الاتحاد! كان لكوينز اليوبيل.

التمتع الصور. أنا أحب اطلاق النار عليهم. لكم تمنيت لو كان لي الماكياج فريق معيthelipstickmakeupinstitute.

UK Wedding Shoot with Yasmin Hussain

Well, I was honoured and extremely chuffed to be invited to the UK to do a wedding shoot. As with anywhere in the world, its so difficult to get someone to do something professional, reliable and consistent. I am all these I am very glad to say. Years of practise with photography.

So my reputation proceeds me., which I am happy to say!

On the morning though my heart did sink For Kerry and Lee as the heavens opened. I did however have faith in the British weather. It changes at the drop of a hat and I was relying on this! True to my word it did and we got some incredible shots by the lake and the swans all decided to fly together and this just created a perfect original wedding shot. Just what I like!

I try to bring some kind of editorial feel into a shoot.  Clients think  they want really traditional as this is what makes it more interesting. We always think we know what we want but when we are offered something slightly different then , normally, we love it. Its not because we didn’t want it in the first place. Its just that we did not understand it or imagine how it would be. Once in context then we generally like it.

I just love the one of Kerry with the cigarette hanging out of her mouth. On the day I really wished that I had brought a leather jacket with me and a pair of boots.   Kerry could have worn them. The shot I would have got would have been , “wicked”. The outfit would be fit for any #nightclub in the UK or Dubai!


It reminded me of a shoot for a magazine I used to work forin Cheltenham called Cotswold Style” I shot a beautiful model in a similar outfit sat on a chair with the Union Jack! It was for the Queens Jubilee.


Enjoy the images. I loved shooting them. I just wished I had my make up team with me @thelipstickmakeupinstitute.

Our Sister Company Lipstick is blogging

From The Lipstick Make Up Institute: Our second day at #billionairemansiondubai where we are doing all the halloween make up! Scary stuff ha. One of the best nightclubs in Dubai.

Don’t you just love Dubai? Everyone just gets so  involved and makes the most of every occasion. It really is a community like no other. I feel that everyone cares about themselves and loves one another and really do make friends easy here. Make up and photography brings everyone together in a unique way.

This is a city to party and make the most out of life. You would think in an Arab country things would be a little suppressed but Sheikh Mohammed in my eyes and really everyone I know we call him The Great Sheikh Mohammed. He is the greeters guy on this earth in my opinion, I can say that because my father is no longer with us!

He has given us an opportunity to come here and live our dreams. He has given us the freedom to grow and create and party! I can’t thank this great man enough.

So getting back to Halloween, As I do tend to meander when I feel passionate about things which is basically everything!!

Here are some shots of our amazing Lipstick make Up Institute Team at work.

Hope you like them.

Tune in all this week for our diverse lifestyles. Tomorrow Nikki Beach!
