We really enjoyed having Zara from Jumeirah College working with us, we always welcome a fresh new perspective on things!

Zara came to The Studio to learn a bit more about the industry. Throughout the week we introduced her to our four divisions of Weddings, Events, Corporate & Family photography and videography.

She was amazing and helped us out with lots of different tasks – a super assistant on photography shoots, assisting on some administrative tasks, participating in meetings & teaching us how to make the most of Snapchat!
