Yaklaşık 35 yıldır fotoğraf gezileri yapıyoruz. Bu yolculuklardan amaç, keşif duygusu ile aktif fotoğraf macerasını bir araya getirmek. Üstelik ülkemizin ve dünyanın en ilginç yerlerinde.
Rotalarımızı daha çok fotografik doğa manzaraları, geleneksel kültür ile tarihi dokular oluşturuyor. Eğitimle iç içe geçen yolculuklarda katılımcılar bir yandan coşkulu ortamları yaşarken diğer yandan fotoğrafın ipuçlarını ve yeni teknikleri öğreniyorlar. Kompozisyon düzenleme, doğal ve yapay ışık kullanımı, çekilen fotoğrafların değerlendirilmesi yolculuklarımızın olağan uygulamaları arasında.
Binlerce yıllık tarihi birikim, farklı iklimlerin getirdiği doğal zenginlik; yüksek dağlar, vadiler ve denizlerin oluşturduğu coğrafi güzellik, farklı kültürün yarattığı çeşitlilik, Anadolu’muzu fotoğraf açısından dünyanın en özel alanları arasına sokuyor. Fotoğrafçılık kendinize verdiğiniz bir hediyedir. Gezilerimize gelin. Bunu hak ediyorsunuz.

Photo Safari in Turkey
For the last 35 years, we have been enjoying photo tours and workshops with our guests. Our main goal is to bring three pillars together: Sense of adventure through photography, feeling of discovery and upskilling talents.
Our tours are usually conducted within natural scenery with a backdrop of cultural and historical makeup of the cities we visit. Guests learn new techniques, tips and tricks of photography while they are enjoying the trip itself. Some of the important skills we cover include photo composition, use of artificial and natural light, and photo evaluations.
We do feel very special every time we get to explore the natural beauties of Turkey, the mountains, the valleys, the beaches blended all with the historical and cultural riches of this land.
Photography becomes a tool to immortalize the beautiful moments of your trip and we love enjoying this gift with you!
Photography is an art where you get to apply your unique perspective through the camera. In this tour you will get to explore photography styles and techniques such as portrait photography, street photography, scenery photography etc. While we explore these, we also aim to increase awareness of perspective and composition in a photo.
First day is spent meeting each other, reviewing some past work and general Q&A. We aim to understand your general skill level and your expectations. Since every moment is unique, depending on the day and conditions, we may guide you to take certain types of photography. If needed we employ led lights or utilize other tools we travel with.
Day time is usually spent taking photos while evenings are dedicated to evaluation, selection of favorites and other post production activities. Through this process, we deepen your skillset and broaden your perspective.
Accommodations and Food
Tours take place in different locations within Turkey. We strive to stay away from touristic locations to experience under discovered and unique places where you get to feel part of the local community.
The nightly stays are arranged in 3-4 star properties near the place of interest. The food is also part of the places we will be staying, you will get to taste the world renowned local food of Turkey. It is important to note that there will be choices for vegans/vegetarians.
Who Can Join?
The tours are designed for all levels of photography. We will cover everything from basic camera features to complex photography techniques. Mastery of use of light will also be the central theme of the tour, we will continually guide you depending on your level.
Regardless of your current level, we will aim to increase your technique knowledge and give you an even greater sense of mastery over your tools and your level of creativity. At the end of the tours we encourage our guests to turn their photography into a blog or presentation.
