BioPhotoRESIZED

I am 54 years old. I was born and raised in Turkey and studied in the US. I am an economist. I came to England in 1992 and after working for 24 years in the City as a stockbroker, I retired five years ago. Now I have the luxury to spend more time in my true passion: diving and underwater photography. 
I started diving 21 years ago and had a basic interest in underwater photography. I did a few beginner workshops with Martin Edge but my learning curve steepened for the first time when I started joining Alex Mustard’s trips and had the time to dive multiple times a year after I retired. I won the first place in Beginners' Portfolio competition of BSOUP in 2017, and I was a finalist at Underwater Photographer of the Year competition in 2018 and 2019. I got placements in Ocean Geographic in 2018 and 2019 in colour prints category two years in a row. In 2018 I got the runners-up of the judge’s choice in prints competition of the Diver Magazine and this year was a finalist in the Original DIVE Photo competition.
I am married and I have two children and live in Wimbledon, London
