I decided to become a photographer when I was studying industrial engineering at a university in Ankara, Turkey. I left the university and I started to work as a photographer for daily newspapers, first in Izmir, then in Istanbul. I immigrated to Canada in 2000 and continued photography.
I am a graduate of the Professional Photography program (2001-2004) at Dawson College in Montreal. Because of my interest in documentary film-making I also studied Film Production at Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema in Concordia University and graduated in 2012.
I live in Berlin, Germany with my wife and our two sons. I keep working on various photography and video projects for individuals as well as for companies.
