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 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?

Ufuk has a great personality and we felt very comfortable with him taking our wedding photos. His style let’s us be natural and for the most part, we can be ourselves while he takes our photos. He knows some secret locations and it was great because some of those photos turned out to be some of the best in the whole album. He also treated us to some Turkish tea while we were on break and even taught me where to go in Istanbul for a great panoramic shot of the city. He is very friendly and kind and you will no doubt have a great time with him!

Ufuk is also very professional as he responded Read More to my emails very quickly. No matter the question, he had an answer so I was confident on who I was dealing with. I had messaged other people too while looking for a photographer and Ufuk was the best out of all of them. We also received our photos a bit earlier than expected and that was a plus.

Ufuk’s knowledge of the Cappadocia area is fantastic as he’s done this dozens of times so you would feel safe in the hands of a professional. It was great having you take our wedding photos and thank you so much! All the best!
