LANDSCAPE & ASTRO PHOTOGRAPHY
by Alper Takcı
Your Walls & My Photos: A Perfect Match
I believe social media and digital screens do not do real justice to photos. When I see a landscape or astro photograph at least a meter (3 ft.) tall and in a handsome frame, then I feel that it serves the pleasure of a person's eyes. Not all my photos are available for print as some of them are close-up corps of wider photos. Please send me an e-mail if you would like to gain access to my print gallery and inquire about pricing.
My workshops are custom-designed and I admit only five attendees to each adventure. The experiences are not predesigned and we could be visiting a place where none of us has been before.
Please send me an e-mail to inquire about upcoming workshops.
My Instagram Feed
I received my first camera, as a gift when I was ten years old. Since then I always had a point-and-shoot camera of some sort lying around the house, but my interest has never gone beyond taking a few shots a year.
After hearing a bunch of "you have an eye for photography"s from friends, and with a lot of encouragement from my wife, I bought my first professional camera, in 2015, at the age of 39.
This purchase and beginner-level photography training allowed me to start experiencing the real magic of photography. It is hard for me to put into words how intensely I enjoy spending time both shooting and post-processing now. I am a fan of shooting the Milky Way and landscapes, but also do street photography and an occasional portrait too.
I think I have ways to go in terms of learning how to shoot and edit. I believe in Malcolm Gladwell's ten thousand hours rule, so check back regularly for the next decade to see the improvement in my photography.
I'm blessed with a devoted, loving wife, and a wonderful son. I live by a motto I've created: "life is like a soap bubble, live it as if you're gone by dawn.”
