Plus here's a previous thread on that matter. I guess things haven't changed that much since.
Well, things have changed a fair bit since 2001 - a second runway and a new terminal for a start!
Photography from the old circular terminal was just about impossible (although the terminal interior is magnificent and well worth photographing.)
The new terminal offers semi-reasonable views of the ramp and taxiing aircraft. If you can find a gate without a plane parked, it might be possible to get some photos, but this is airside I'm talking about.
The only landside opportunity was a cafe which offered some views of the runway, but at quite a distance. Of course, heat haze kills most shots here anyway.
Outside the airport there are few locations that offer even half-decent opportunities and you will need a 4x4 to go off-road. I lived in Dubai for nine months and visited AUH
three or four times and I never managed a single shot good enough to upload here.
