About  Jacqui Nightscales

Hi, Welcome! I'm so glad that you stopped by my site. I hope that you find what you are looking for. 


I am an award winning food photographer based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.


With over 16 years of photography experience, I capture images with passion and emotion, telling a story that keeps you engaged. 

I believe every concept shoot is unique and tailor my packages according to your needs. I love getting to know my clients and building relationships, so please get in touch to inquire about photoshoots or to get more info. I would love to hear from you!


I studied photography for 3 years in 2001 at Durban Institute of Technology in South Africa. Back then, I shot on and developed my own film, and printed my own images in the darkroom. A lot has changed over the years, but my love for photography has never faded. If anything I get more excited by learning new techniques and challenging myself to make each shoot better than the last. I love to learn and grow as a photographer. I've completed a food photography course with internationally acclaimed photographer Matt Armendariz as well as many online courses. 

My hobbies: 
I love traveling. I've traveled extensively all over the world, and feel like each trip makes me grow as a person. When I'm not on a plane, you can find me outdoors in the desert, on the beach, hiking or camping.
