Commenting on his upcoming workshop and the overall workshop series Bin Thalith said "We are always honoured to host UAE photographers at our headquarters in hope of benefiting them through the various experienced international speakers who present. What we are definitely impressed with is the increase in interest in these workshops which was reflected by the full attendances recorded at the previous 3 workshops. We hope to continue this for the final upcoming lecture, which I will have the honour of presenting."

Bin Thalith continued, that "These workshops are just the beginning of activities which we plan to host at our headquarters in Downtown Dubai. We hope to spread photography to the general public through such events and in-turn hope for public support in the coming period to achieve our vision."
