Hi I'm petra, your Dubai Photographer


About Me

Having visited over 65 countries and counting, I am a passionate traveller and I my photos are inspired by places, cultures and people all around the world. Being a summer and heat loving person, I consider Dubai the perfect place to live. Beach season is all year round! I love bringing out the best in you – When I take pictures I make the people around me feel comfortable, confident and beautiful. Unposed images – I love capturing moments and emotions which are natural, whether dramatic, happy or documentary style. Posed images – I also know how to pose my models into eye-catching fashion, portrait and magazine looking shots. Light is my best friend – I use the natural light to my advantage, or I might come with my assistant and use photography lights as well, I know how to create stunning images even at night or using various city lights. Never ending development – I believe that photography is a constant learning process, there is always something new to discover, to try and to create. For me it is also about recreating and enhancing reality. The lens and sensor of the camera are able to capture moments in a more beautiful way than is visible to the human eye. I speak English, German, Slovak and Czech.

We wanted to celebrate our 10 year anniversary in Dubai and keep those memories. We did not prepare for rain. So me being shy and having a rainy morning I was a little scared about the photos. But the photographer was amazing, friendly and the result was just amazing. -Francheska

Mandy was going to be in Dubai for work, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to propose in Dubai. It is such a beautiful city, with many unique locations for a proposal. I wanted to make sure that we had photos of the engagement to be able to share with family and friends. I snuck Mandy's mom to Dubai to help set up, and also to be present for the proposal. She met with Petra beforehand, and they set everything up to where I only had to walk to the location with Mandy! -Zachary

We met on an online dating website after a very short time of talking I knew that Lara was the part of my life that was missing and we would spend the rest of our lives together. Neither of us thought we would fall in love with someone halfway around the world and make a long-distance relationship work and keep things alive and thriving despite the distance being apart physically. So Dubai ended up being the place we found that worked out to visit and part birthday celebration and marriage proposal. Capture proposal moment memories even though it's a day neither of us will forget. Planned the proposal for the evening on the beach near our dinner reservation later that night. It all went very well. Petra and I were messaging quite a bit beforehand to get the plan all figured out. As well as making the timing work where Petra could be in a good position to capture the moment while still keeping the proposal a surprise and that I had gotten a photographer to capture the moment and surprise. After Lara said yes Petra came over and Introduce herself and we began the rest of our photoshoot session for some more awesome pictures. Petra was extremely helpful and gave us a lot of good direction with lots of Ideas and positions backgrounds to take a lot of very nice photos that will be loved and cherished forever. Everything came out great Petra did an amazing job and would recommend it to anyone. If we go back to Dubai at some point I know who I will be contacting for any more photography. -Joseph

I moved from Vienna to Zürich in 2017. After a few days, I was looking for a gym and found one near my apartment. After 10 days in Zürich, I was at the gym and when I was walking down the stairs from the gym I meet her for the first time. We looked at each other and the time/moment was frozen and I felt something special. Next time when I saw her at the gym I talked to her and asked for their number. So we had a date and I know from the beginning that she is the special one. She thought the same. After 3 years together we planned a trip to New York in Mai 2020 and I planned the engagement. Because of the corona, the trip was canceled. So I was waiting for the next opportunity (I had no pressure because I knew we will stay together also without engagement). Then we planned the trip to Dubai and I knew this was my moment because I love the city (I have been there two times before). So I started to plan everything. Because of the proposal. I wanted to capture the special moment forever. The Shooting with Petra was great and everything was perfect. She was very proactive and had a lot of great ideas. The result is very nice (better than excepted). So we are both very happy that we have chosen Petra. It will stay in our memories forever. Thank you so much. -Sasa
