Hello! I am a wedding photographer who lives in Turkey but can shoot anywhere in the world. Despite having a bachelor's and master's degree in engineering from Istanbul University and Bogazici University, I decided to turn my hobby into a career. I started to work as a documentary photographer. It was definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life.  
I was the first Turkish photographer which was invited as a speaker to the Fearless Photographers Conference (Aachen, Germany -2019), a conference attended by the world's best wedding photographers. 
I have photographed weddings in 22 different countries and in many different cities of Turkey and I have met hundreds of wonderful people. 
For me, wedding photography is something more than just work, it is as a project that has no beginning or end. It is my passion to document all the moments of that day in an aesthetic and best way. I think the best part of my job is to remind the memories of these emotional or entertaining moments which are irreversible and to make them happy throughout the whole process.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

Located in Istanbul, I do not charge a travel fee.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

14 years - more than 500 weddings

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Photojournalistic, artistic, creative, unique. I am a candid shot lover, focus on the moment that happening on the wedding day. All my shooting are candid without posing except portrait session. I focus on the real story happening on the big day and unfold the moments by all the photos supporting to each other. I really shoot a wedding, not only taking photos on a wedding. I basically keep shooting from the beginning to the end.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I use Skype etc.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

Hi Ufuk! We were so excited with the pictures! They look amazing! Thanks so much again for making our day very special. No words can express out appreciation. 
It is difficult to put into words just how special an artist Ufuk is. From the moment we seen his work online we knew Ufuk had to be our wedding photographer as he has such a gift for capturing natural moments so beautifully.

From start to finish, Ufuk was amazing. He is professional, warm and kind and a true joy to spend our most important day with. His photographs captured the whole day perfectly, from the boat ride to the venue right up to the late night swimming in the sea, not a single moment was missed. The end results were remarkable and everyone who sees our wedding pictures Read More comments on how unique and magical they are.

Thank you always for your hard work and for helping us capture and remember the best day of our lives, forever. You are one in a million.
We planned our wedding in Söğütköy, Turkey and found Ufuk’s photography and website fairly quickly and knew he was the best choice for us. Although we loved his style of photography, it were the heartfelt reviews and opinion of Ufuk that really sold him to us. I knew he would care, and I knew he would listen. And he didn’t disappoint us! His communication was always fantastic, clear and personal before the wedding and we trusted him! Although our wedding was not as spectacular and glamorous as lots of the ones on his website, he captured our intimate wedding perfectly and though we are pretty Read More camera shy and don’t really like to pose, caught the moments just right! We love our photos but more importantly we loved having Ufuk with us for the day. We were lucky enough to be in the same hotel for a night a year before in Cyprus when we met up the first time, and even luckier to spend an evening with him in Istanbul a few months after the wedding. He is a true gentleman, a fabulous photographer and should definitely be everyone’s first choice if you want to feel comfortable and cared about on your special day.
