Photographs from ‘Around Fujairah’ by Emily Ray

Around Fujairah

As part of the refurbishment of the Fujairah Football Club, His Highness, Sheikh Maktoum bin Hamad Al Sharqi, asked Fujairah photographer, Emily Ray, to display some of her photographs that give a sense of Fujairah’s identity and beauty to those who visit.

Take time to visit the ground floor of the Fujairah Football Club and enjoy Emily’s superb pictures that capture the essence of the eastern emirate—coffee pots, falcons, camels, forts, mosques, bulls, wadis, fishermen, the seascape, the sunrise, the Hajars and more.

There’s a sense in which everyone’s a photographer these days with mobile phones having amazing camera facilities but when you see Emily’s photos you’ll see why an expert photographer does much more than point and shoot.

There’s a skill in composing the picture, being attentive to lighting and thinking of the way the subject is framed.

About Emily Ray

Emily Ray is a self-taught photographer who resonates with Emile Zola’s declaration: “In my view you cannot claim to have seen something until you have photographed it.”

As her bio indicates, Emily is a seasoned traveller, the Head of the French Department at the Fujairah Private Academy, a cat rescuer, a person who loves to drive 4X4 cars in the desert and much more…

Her various photo galleries indicate something of the wide range of Emily’s photographic interest and expertise—architecture, black and white, close up, fauna, flora, natural world, people, travel and weddings.

Of particular interest to Fujairah readers is the large number of photos on Emily’s web site and Facebook Page that have a Fujairah and Kalba theme. Also check out and LIKE Emily Ray Photography Facebook Page.

Enjoy browsing through the different photo galleries on her web site, leave a message and keep Emily in mind when you want to have photos taken of yourself, your family or some other subject.

Take a Look

The twenty-five photos hanging in the Fujairah Football Club can be viewed in this photo album but they’re best viewed first hand in the gallery.
