Your Vacation Photographer in Istanbul: Meet Murat

Meet Murat

I was born and raised in Istanbul, educated in Istanbul, Valencia and Tokyo. I work as a wedding, street and travel photographer, shooting both nationally and around the world. I try to keep my style fresh, calm and minimalist. I love negative space. And I try to combine all these with the vibrant and even chaotic street life of Istanbul.

Three Things

  1. I love to travel. Traveling is my lifetime passion. When I'm not travelling for photography, I always find another reason for it.
  2. I couldn't live without... travel!
  3. My friends tell me I know everything. Whenever they wonder something, even irrelevant things, they always ask me first. Sometimes it makes so much fun, especially when I speculate.
