Here the shot I took this morning. It features the top spire of 'The Torch Marina' while the rest of the tower was completely submerged in dense fog. I'd normally capture this frame without an ND filter but in this example, I tried out the NiSi Filters 100mm system with a 15-stop IR ND filter mounted on the Canon TS-E 24mm lens. Camera was Canon 5DsR.
EXIF: 178 seconds exposure, ISO 100, f/11
Such a long exposure helped to smoothen the fast moving fog and that created a very otherworldly feel to this image which I like a lot.

Featured is Dubai's latest attraction; Dubai Water Canal. As it would be the case with most of Dubai's structures, this canal is an amazing engineering achievement in the city that never ceases to re-invent and transform itself. What an awesome new viewpoint ...

This picture took a long time to plan and research. And yet, when I finally got to this shooting spot, a full month later and with lots of excitement, I came -this- close to leaving without taking a single shot. How come? Tourists. Hordes of them. They came i...

One must take a step back to really appreciate the height of the world's tallest structure, the mighty Burj Khalifa.

This is my last image of 2016. It was a year of extreme ups and downs, failure and success, plenty of joy, happiness and just as much heartbreak and sadness. But I'm still here and I'm telling this story. So it's all good. I'm looking forward to see what 201...

'STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM' Dubai skyline in the wee hours, submerged in a delicious thick fog. I never shot it from this vantage point before, so this is now crossed from my list and I can happy carry on with my life.

This image is inspired by David Lynch's Sci-fi classic 'Dune', released in 1984. I've used various aerial photographs taken across the United Arab Emirates to create this fictional photo composite.

Biography

Beno is a Slovenian born time lapse cinematographer, photographer and visual artist. He is currently based in Dubai, UAE.

 For 18 years, Beno has trained his eye in the art of seeing as a 3D Computer Animation and Architecture Visualization specialist. As a veteran digital artist, Beno won numerous accolades and awards such as the rank of 'Autodesk Master' as well as the winner of the prestigious 'Tektronix International Design Visualization Competition' in 1993. For his continuous contributions to the art of architectural visualization, Beno was given a 'Special Merit of Excellence' award by Kinetix / Autodesk in 2005. Beno's 3D generated art was published in several international architectural visualization publications and books such as the '3DS MAX 2008 Foundation'. Beno was also a contributing consultant for Michigan State University at the Department of Forensic Science.

In 2008, Beno started exploring new creative avenues which lead him to discover the world of photography and time lapse cinematography. Having a solid foundation and decades of practice in related types of visual arts, Beno’s transition to his newly found passion was a swift one. By 2011, he had dozens of photographs and time lapse films specially featured across local and international media and publications. His body of work is recognized for its use of light and composition, drawing strong influences from the classics of cinema and traditional art.

Beno's comprehensive portfolio is defined by his profound love for architecture, engineering, science and the beauty of nature. His vast knowledge of digital imaging technologies is evident in every photograph. As an individual accustomed to dramatic profession changes, Beno believes in the power of a life-long learning process and feeding the child-like curiosity throughout adulthood. He tirelessly experiments with fresh styles of photography while refusing to box himself in any particular genre. Keeping the broad and diverse subject matters in front of his lens is the secret sauce to creative liberty and inspiration.

His list of clients include BBC’s Natural History Unit, the Discovery Channel, Canon Middle East, Emirates Airline, Abu Dhabi and Dubai Governments and many others.

He has recently been nominated for an Emmy for his achievements in cinematography. He is also a Silver Dolphin Award winner of the prestigious Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards.
