Scott Hargis just sent me the details on the series of Lighting Interiors Workshops that he will be teaching in Dubai in early November. He will be doing 3 workshops:
Number 1 & 2 with be his PFRE workshop with some extras. Number 3 is already sold out but you can get on the waiting list. Round trip airfare from North America is around $1500 but cheaper from Europe, Asia and Australia.
Scott's workshops are part of Fotoweekend 2012 which is a yearly photo event in Dubai. I've heard great things about past instances of this event. There are many other workshops in addition to Scott's workshops so this is a great opportunity to go on a weekend getaway.
