Our Turkey photography tour 'Where East meets West' will take place in October 2024 with Mehmet Ozbalci. Turkey is a mix of East and West, with ancient cultures existing next to modern. Many different civilisations have florished within Turkey’s present day borders, making the country a fantastic place to explore what these civilisations left behind in the form of architecture and culture. It is a photographer's "Turkish Delight", with its historical sites, friendly people, curious geological formations and stunning ancient architecture. It is also a fascinating study in contrasts, a bridge between Europe and Asia, the end of the ancient Silk Road and home of legends & history taught in schools the world over.

Join Mehmet and explore where East Meets West - from Istanbul to Cappadocia, from Mt Nemrut to Ephesus, and you will return with images to treasure a lifetime!

We will donate 5% of all profits from this tour to the Disasters Emergency Committee's fund to help support all those affected by February's devastating earthquake. https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/turkey-syria-earthquake-appeal

Turkey Photography Tour - Where East Meets West

Turkey Photography Tour - Where East meets West
Turkey - a paradise for photographers - it’s natural beauty and abundance of historic treasures give the photographer plenty of possibilities to make beautiful and dramatic images. With its rich history, natural wonders and vibrant cultures, you can’t fail to be inspired.

Travelling from one end of Turkey to the other, our tour will cover stunning well known, plus off the beaten track locations. We will also enjoy the local customs and cultures that have evolved in Turkey and will have chances to photograph people in their daily routine as well as their special events.  

There will be many highlights during our photography tour: the oriental skyline of exotic Istanbul, captured from the soft morning light of the blue hour to sunset silhouettes. Hagia Sophia, built as a Cathedral in the 6th century and now a mosque, a masterpiece of Roman engineering. A 'Whirling Dervishes' performance, eerie underground cisterns, fascinating fairy chimney-like stacks, rock formations and extreme terrain in Cappadocia. Pamukkale, which offers the most unusual formations of calcium deposit terraces. Ephesus, the best-preserved Roman city in the world. A trip to one of the most colourful and interesting markets in Turkey in an "off the beaten track” town and a visit to the fabled Mount Nemrut to photograph the impressive colossal ancient statues at sunrise, and much much more!

You will be taken to the right places, at the right time of day, and you will photograph special locations that have been discovered over the years by your tutor Mehmet, to create iconic images. 

You will be able to explore Turkey with hands-on guiding, while staying in carefully selected accommodation, enjoying superb cuisine, and being transported by a driver who is familiar with photo tours and who will stop on the road whenever we spot something interesting to photograph.

We will donate 5% of all profits from this tour to the Disasters Emergency Committee's fund to help support all those affected by February's devastating earthquake. https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/turkey-syria-earthquake-appeal
