The UAE has set very clear and easy-to-follow rules for drone photography, with an online registration process on the DCAA and GCAA websites, and in Dubai there is a requirement to take a course.
Tools such as Google Maps and the UAE's My Drone Hub app can be used to explore interesting structures and landscapes, and determine the best place to take shots without violating any rules.
