The new “Photographing The World” Series starts here, and we kick off with Street Photography in Istanbul!
This video was long due, but I came back from Istanbul with 6+ hours of footage and almost 1Tb of photos… All over the place. I was to give you a full-length docu-vlog of about 20-25 minutes. But then I thought a small pill format would have been much more palatable (pun intended).
“Photographing The World” is the slogan currently written on my YouTube channel banner. When I started the channel, I still didn’t know how long the Covid pandemic would last. Having travelled extensively before it, I had this vision for the channel to focus on my journeys abroad.
While waiting to resume travelling full-time, the channel shifted to more gear and general Photography. But the aim was always to focus on Travel Photography. And now it’s time!
I did some Street Photography in Istanbul as part of a fantastic meetup with many other photographers and YouTubers back in April. Like I said, it took me a while to go through all the material 😅
You may have already seen some of the content when I published my 5 Tips to Photograph Strangers. As I say in the video, I love the people of Istanbul. So it made sense to me to take more street portraits.

This video is a short introduction but contains some of my favourite photos. I went to Hagia Sophia (Ayasofya) early in the morning to catch the beautiful light making its way through the windows. And I was able to capture some of those perfect light beams you recognise from my street photography style… Absolutely gorgeous.
Speaking of photos, This series has a perfect companion in a photo zine I am releasing in 2023.
You can grab yours now with an early bird discount and see the high-res images, read the stories and follow along with this series as it unfolds.

Istanbul Travel Guide and Photo Zine
This Istanbul photo zine includes more than 130 photos over 150 pages with shooting info, stories, and places from my recent trip to Istanbul. This is the perfect companion to my travel video on YouTube about the same trip.
Here you can hopefully get inspired by the many high-res photos, pick up your camera, and visit this splendid city.
With its mix of cultures and religions and being one of the largest cities in the world, there is always a lot to see and do in Istanbul. For example, the Grand Bazaar is the largest and oldest covered market in the world, with over 60 streets and 4000 shops. And there’s a dedicated section in this publication full of images to inspire you.
More details and info are below.
Purchasing my publications, digital products and prints is the most direct way to support me and my work. Every item sold here helps me raise funds to create even more photos, videos and products specifically for you.
Next in the series
The next episode will come shortly and feature the Grand Bazaar, the Egyptian Bazaar, and the areas around. Probably the biggest “pill” in the series, so don’t miss out!
It’s all about Street Photography in Istanbul, but there will be portraits, sunrises and sunsets, cityscapes and more.
