Coming from a family of artists, I am a fine art photographer based in Istanbul.
My love of the visual arts and photography began at my early age. After my education in Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Columbia University, my lifelong passion for photography changed the way I saw the world and the way I lived my life. It was before the turn of the millennium when I became a full time photographer. I traveled the world, shooting for stock agencies, multinational clients, and always kept creating personal fine art photographs that touched my heart along the way.
Besides taking photographs, I enjoy teaching photography and lead workshops. I have served in photo competition juries numerous times.

Artist Statement

Photography is the art of selection.

My fine art photography is diverse, capturing the aura of the natural world, people and its possessions; telling stories in a graphic yet natural quality; and presented in contemporary methods.

I aim to show the intricacies that nature and the human element hold through my photography.
