About Istanbul Photographer

My name is Uğur (but you can call me as “Lucky”). I was born in Istanbul and I have been living in this city for 30 years. When I was photographing with a film machine in my childhood, I suddenly found myself in the time of digital cameras.I worked as a graphic designer in an advertising agency for about 5 years. I have been providing professional photography services for about 4 years in istanbul. If you like my photo style, I guarantee you will have a fabulous session with me.

Very talented and creative
Uğur is a great photographer who took awesome shots of me all over Istanbul! He had good tips for poses and knew how to make the perfect picture. He was also quite knowledgeable about Istanbul and the day with him and his assistant was fun as he is very easy-going, flexible and kind. Can only recommend!

Better eye and vision
Ugur is a great photographer with an even better eye and vision. He's a graphic designer by trade but has been in photography for over 8yrs. He knows Istanbul well, and will take you to the classic and not so classic spots to document your trip to the city. His English is good, and will give you casual tidbits of history throughout the experience. After all, you should want to know more about where your photos are taken! Would highly recommend! 5 stars.

Im very satisfied with the pictures and also he is very well informed about each place and made it feel so much fun taking pictures:). I would definitely recommend it.
