What you'll do

In this photo tour I'll not only teach you how to take better pictures but also how to think like a pro. We'll discover the Old Genoese neighborhood of Galata with our cameras to find some unique angles along the way. After meeting at Şişhane Metro Station we'll walk towards Galata Tower passing next to Neve Shalom synagogue. After a stroll around the Galata Tower taking pictures of the people we will go to a rooftop where we can see panoramic views of Istanbul. I'll show you some of the oldest Genoese structures of the city that are still standing before taking pictures of the most photogenic stairs of Istanbul. We'll stroll around the hardware district of the city finding some little known treasures and hidden corners for photography including a mosque, old traders inn and graffitis. After a visit to the local fish market our tour will end against a panoramic skyline of the city and we'll learn how to include the people in our cityscapes. Apart of being a photo tour you'll also learn about the history of the neighborhood, supported with interesting stories.
