The Light Within - (Istanbul, Turkey)

Google+ || Facebook || Twitter




The beauty of Istanbul’s Mosques at night reminded me of a conversation I had a few days ago.


I was talking with a good friend of mine about photography and he asked me, “I know you do Travel Photography for a living but what’s your favorite subject to shoot? Landscapes, architecture, conceptual stuff, naked girls, what?”


After lingering on the thought of naked girls for quite a few moments, I realized that I didn’t have an answer to his question, and that kinda startled me. I mean, excluding naked girls, I shoot all of those styles of photography but I don’t particularly gravitate towards any single one. So what is it then? What is the unifying subject that sparks my passion for capturing a moment?


And then it occurred to me, “It’s the light.”
