Breathtaking Time-Lapse Captures the City, Culture and Landscape of Doha, Qatar

Coming from one of the masters of time-lapse photography, “Welcome to Doha,” by Michael Shainblum is a brilliant piece of work that shows off the beautiful capital of Qatar as only Shainblum can.

For the making of this project, Shainblums flew to Doha with the goal of capturing not only the environment around him, but the culture as well. Months worth of meticulously planning out the details ensured that once his week of shooting came around, things would go as smoothly as possible.


While speaking to Fstoppers, Shainblum explained that the most stressful part of the project was working in a foreign country, as it was his first time traveling across the world and the language barrier was quite overwhelming for him. Obviously it wasn’t an insurmountable barrier…

The full video comes in at just under four minutes, so click play and feast your eyes on the landscape and culture Shainblum managed to capture in Doha, Qatar.
