Location and history

Our history…

Stu Williamson Photography is over 10 years old and is famous for creating beautiful, timeless portraits of families across the UAE. From our iconic studio to school photography and now our new studio at the Fairmont the Palm, we are continuously evolving to provide the best service we can for our clients.

Beach Road…

Photo Studio Beach Road Dubai


The beginning…

Our first studio opened in 2006 on the Beach Road and was the most contemporary fine art photography studio in Dubai. Our villa was an iconic building and our clients loved coming to experience the excitement of a photo shoot whilst being surrounded with style and luxury.

With continuous investment into equipment and training, we quickly grew to a dedicated team of 40 members, taking the art of photography to the next level. A distinct style was born and Stu Williamson became famous and a popular destination for residents of Dubai and the surrounding Emirates.


Photo Studio Reception

The studio closed its doors in April 2015 with Stu himself returning to the UK. He’s still very much involved with the business over here in Dubai and comes over regularly for training and shoots.

Since the Studio closure, we have focused on both school photography and the demand for location shoots providing the same quality as a studio shoot yet in the comfort of our customers’ homes.


The Palm Jumeirah…

A new era..

In January 2017, we opened a brand new luxury studio in the 5* hotel ‘Fairmont The Palm’.

We’re back….

With little or no promotion over the past few years some clients thought we had closed for good. Since our re-opening we have had many old customers visit our new location to update their Stu Williamson photos who remember us fondly from the Beach Road.

The new studio is completely different and unique, setting it apart from any other studio in Dubai. Taking on the prestige and style of the previous studio our new location has bespoke hand painted backgrounds and 3D flower walls that creates a beautiful environment for our photographers to be really innovative with. We offer something different and modern that you can not find in any other studio in Dubai, in a unique location that exudes luxury and comfort. When you come for a shoot there is no need to worry about where to park as there is onsite valet parking, you can enjoy the additional facilities of the hotel if you wish.
