It is always refreshing when you get the opportunity to meet people who are completely passionate about what they do and who are dedicated and committed to making sure this is reflected in their work.  Claire Riley from the Goldfish team met me for coffee to chat about the business that she started here in Dubai, along with her husband Paul and two other like-minded Co-Founders, Andrew & Rebecca.  I could have sat with her for hours as I found her inspiring and easy to talk to.  It didn`t take me very long to realise that this team are extremely talented and that each member brings something unique to the photography world.  I love the way every image that they capture is completely different from the next and how these professionals are not scared to try new things if it means being able to shoot a once in a life time moment on camera or on video.  There is no doubt that their clients are given photographs and memories that they can treasure forever.

The best part is that they are not only amazing photographers but they also specialise in Slow Motion Video.  When Andy and I got married we didn`t think twice about finding a videographer to film our special day in South Africa.  It was the best decision ever and Andy often comes home to find me watching our video AGAIN!  I am sure you won`t need persuading when you watch this video produced by Goldfish.  It is so special to be able to relive your wedding day from the comfort of your living room.  How exciting that we will be able to see more of their amazing work here on `i am captivated`.

Why you love Dubai…
We love Dubai for many reasons! Its beautiful beaches, its grand hotels..you are never short of creative inspiration! Dubai has such a mixed culture of people living here, meaning you get to learn so much more about other cultures and religions, which always amazes us. It is also such a fabulous place for opportunity.
Your favourite place for a cup of tea…
I would have to say MORE cafe or Shakespeares are my favourite hang outs when I get the chance!
Your favourite holiday destination…
I would have to say the Maldives, simply because it was my honeymoon destination so it now holds a very special place in my heart. I would love to go back there again one day.
