A workshop is an educational experience to help you improve your craft. A workshop is design to teach you new techniques in the field, teach you new techniques in a studio or teach you post-production and business skills.
For general purposes, I recommend that you carry one digital camera (or smart phones if you don’t own a digital camera). Any digital camera will work and any lens is enough to benefit from the workshop. If you have specific goals when joining a photo tour or workshop, please share this when you get in touch to book your toru/workshop.

Two days with Enis

We came to Istanbul for the first time in our life. I love to take photos our travels for I knew photography would be an important part of our visit to Istanbul. As Ansel Adam’s said, getting a good photograph is about knowing where to stand. There are so many places to stand in Istanbul, I decided that booking time with a professional would be very helpful. I looked at Enis’s website. His work is captivating and compelling. So I reached out to Enis. He was very helpful and responsive via email. We discussed what I may enjoy to…
I am a photographer primarily interested in street photography and this was my first time in Istanbul. I connected with Enis Yücel and went for a photo-walk exploring the streets of Istanbul. I was overwhelmed with what Enis unfolded before me. He is a great photographer and guide and understands the little nuances of street photography very well. His knowledge of the city, people, history and culture was an added bonus. If you want to shoot the very soul of Istanbul, then Enis is your go to man without a second thought. I wish him the very best in life.
Amazing Photo & Culture Experience

Walking photography tour with Enis Yücel is exceptional event for every recommendation. We started before the sunrise, photographing and getting to know Istanbul. Enis is at the same time proficient photographer and excellent connoisseur of Istanbul from the perspective a of person who lives and works in that city. He guides you trough everything, from the general history of the town and the history of different buildings to explanation of street graffiti and moving on the streets. You could not find such photographic locations and views by yourselves…
