Photographer

Hi, my name is Mine (pronounced as Me-Neh)

I am a street photographer from Istanbul and travel as much as possible.  Although I have a Master of Science in Chemistry and I worked as a patent attorney for 11 years, I quit my daily job in May 2018 to pursue my passion in photography. It was my biggest hobby and dream along with traveling, and now it became something more.

As a street photographer, I prefer to hunt the moments of the daily life. I tend to picture these sequences as cinematic scenes in my mind. Since we do not live in a black and white world, I prefer shooting with colors as I see it. 

I am a Fujifilm user since 2013 and since 2018 I have been using Fuji-XH1.

I have participated in many exhibitions so far and now my aim is to open my first solo exhibition and even publish a photography book to share the beauty I see within people and their daily lives with the world.

My specialities are

Product photography in streets

Nature Photography

Street Portrait
