Based in Istanbul & London as a freelance photographer (being of mixed Turkish-British parentage), I attempt to show the real face of everyday Turkey through my images by wandering the streets with camera in hand. I recently accompanied The Royal Ballet during their first-ever tour to the Aspendos Festival in Antalya, Turkey, photographing the dancers on and off-stage the ancient amphitheatre. My commissioned work includes CondÃ© Nast Traveller magazine, Insight Guides, ‘Turkish Cookery’ (Saqi Books) and a forthcoming book on Mediterranean trees and shrubs by botanist Dr John Akeroyd. I recently provided the cover image for the first issue of British magazine ‘tasteAnatolia’ and interior design images for Turkish ‘Home Art’ magazine. Last year my life as a photographer was profiled on Turkish Channel 24 on their ‘Living in Turkey’ series.
