    David, this surprising but not surprising. Worth checking if this is due to safety issue or cultural/religious reason. Many years ago we travelled through the desert of Saudi Arabia. Although we were covered up like other Arab women, they refused to be photographed for religious reason. Perhaps it’s a question if a DSLR camera is viewed as “haram”(forbidden), “halal”(allowed) or “makruh”(frowned upon but not deemed sinful) object. You need to have sufficient knowledge about Islamic law and culture to understand this region.
