Istanbul, a Turkish Delight

In April, I attended a five-day photography class in Istanbul, Turkey. Part of the Cities at Dawn series taught by Anthony Epes, the workshop was an outstanding experience. Not only was I forced to shoot in manual mode, but the early morning photo sessions opened my eyes to the beauty of the dawns early light.  These are a few of my favorite pictures from the week I spent in Istanbul. Click on the first image for a slide show.


I, too, love Istanbul (plus Cappadocia and other spots in Turkey) and wish it was safer to go back. Your images are beautiful, and brought back a lot of great memories. A photo class is such a wonderful way to see a city.

– Hello – I must say, I’m impressed with your site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and information was very easy to access. I found what I wanted in no time at all. Pretty awesome. Would appreciate it if you add forums or something, it would be a perfect way for your clients to interact. Great job


Thanks so much. Sorry it took me so long to respond. I have been traveling and came home with bronchitis. Haven’t been at the computer much. 🙂


Thanks Courtney! These losses really stick with us, huh? You are surely blessed with your two girls, I’m hoping that 2011 is our year. New year, new decade, new luck. I appreciate the support and thanks for the tip about numerology, I didn’t know that.


What a beautiful gallery of photos. You certainly know your way around a camera’s potential! Thank you.


Now that is a lovely set of photos! They are proof that total creative control over the camera can achieve – mmmm, I still think “force” is too strong a word.
HA. 🙂
I can’t wait to go back with a 400mm!

Wonderful photos! Loved the one of the domes looking towards the city and the one of the painter! Istanbul is a city that I’ve got on my travel bucket list. Looks so interesting and so full of history!
