My interest in photography began at the age of 16 when my brother gave me his old camera, but it wasn't until 2001 that photography became a bigger part of my life. In the years I lived in Canada, I have won several local and international awards, including a second place award in Toronto International Salon of Photography. My work has been displayed in CONTACT Photography Festival, the largest photography event in the world. I shot my first wedding in 2006.
Currently I live in Istanbul with my wife, and my son who, after several years of photographing weddings, helped me understand why I love wedding photojournalism; it is because I am creating images for my couples that they and their grandkids will not just love to look at, but also still find touching and meaningful even after many years.

Erkin, thank you so much for the photos! I loved them (even updated some on facebook - you just have to show them or else why even have them :) ) This is exatly what I had hoped for when we were looking for a photographer. Maybe we can find another occassion for you to photograph in the future ;)

Back in the Netherlands now after a relaxing week at the beach. I just wanted to write a short note to say thanks for the support and low-key interaction last Sunday (particularly during the preparations and family photos!) which definitely added to my enjoyment and fun for the day! Also for the tip on holding the flowers :-)

To be able to capture the true essence and the complete story of your wedding day, I recommend at least 8 hours of coverage. Of course you have the option to have me for more than 12 hours, or even for multiple days.
