Incredible experience! Uğur and Shifat are very great to hang out with, very personable, and excellent photographers. We did not feel rushed and the photos were plenty and well above our expectations. Uğur and Shifat are very talented and know exactly how to get your best pictures. If you are in Istanbul, we would highly recommend this!

Not pleased with this experience. I've done photography sessions on Airbnb in Argentina and Australia, and I had very wonderful experiences with the photographers. So it's a disappointment for me to write a negative review for Ugur and I'll explain why. First of all, Ugur never sent the edited pictures despite promising to send it soon, and ignored my follow up message. Next, I had booked this "private" session days in advance and at the last minute, someone else had joined the same date. I never had a photographer try and cram 2 sessions in one, especially for the high price point Ugur charges. I knew I should have canceled or rescheduled, but I thought that I was maybe being unreasonable, there is nothing wrong to share a session. However, I feel like that more attention was paid to the other person, and more time and quality. Maybe I sound so egoistic typing this, but for the price point paid, I had expectations that weren't met. If it was half of the cost, okay, no problem. I expected the same quality of service I had gotten in previous Airbnb shoots but I felt displeased with this experience. The unedited pictures were very nice, don't get me wrong, but I felt like it fell short of the quality that I had in previous experiences. I really appreciate his assistant Shifat who was really amazing and helped with poses. However, this was the poorest session I had so far, and wil make me reconsider certain aspects when booking in the future elsewhere in the world.

Ugur is a special person, friendly, helpful, loves to chat, talented, immediately understood our preferences for the photos and incorporated them immediately. The experience could not have been better. Although Istanbul is an extremely photogenic city, the artist's eye can always improve what is perfect. Would do it again, no doubt
