Home to breathtaking architecture, delicious food, and some of the warmest, most genuinely hospitable people you can ever meet, Istanbul is a city you will want to visit--and take photos of-- again and again.
Staying at a very centrally located three-star hotel, we will discover the most photogenic locations of Istanbul, together with our Turkish-speaking photography instructor plus a dedicated expert guide (also fluent in English and French), who will explain to you the culture and stories of each location.
The architecture, the food, everything in Istanbul tells a story. The city is busy & fast, and never stops. But when you need a break from all this fervid life, there is always a nice garden, a small tea house or a mosque where you can sit, breathe and relax.
East meets West and old meets new in vibrant Istanbul, Turkey. Historically known as Constantinople after the Roman Emperor Constantine I, Istanbul was for years the centre of the Roman Byzantium and Ottoman Empires. Home to many of the most recognizable images of the country of Turkey, such as the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and the Blue Mosque, Istanbul is not to be missed.
Istanbul is Turkey’s most populous city as well as its cultural and financial center. The mosques, bazaars and Turkish baths of Istanbul could keep you happily occupied for your entire trip. On a trip to this gleaming, modern city you can immerse yourself in nearly 3000 years of history from Roman ruins to Byzantine marvels, Ottoman treasures and modern amusements.
This adventure is designed not only to guide you to the most photogenic locations carefully planned for the best light, but to aid you in mentally visualizing a scene before capturing the decisive moment. Our aim is to raise your awareness and spark your creativity so that you not only go home with images to be proud of, but use your newfound skills to improve and expand your photographic technique in general. Apart from the technical aspects of learning your camera settings and capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your own creativity.
We will stay at a comfortable highly rated hotel (~3 stars) in the modern center of Istanbul, for easy transport to all the shooting locations. You can see representative photos from the previous hotels.
If you decide to come earlier and / or leave later, we can arrange extra nights at preferential rates for you from the same hotel
