I was born in 1980 in the beautiful nature protection site of Igneada, at the North-Western Coast of Turkey. I grew up and followed my primary education in this beautiful area. When I was 14 years old, I moved to Istanbul to enter a high school in computer science in Tuzla, and lived in Istanbul for more than 11 years. I also got my university degree on computer science in Istanbul, at Marmara University, and afterwards I worked in Istanbul for four more years. In that period I participated in some international projects in Northern Africa as well. Then my professional career brought me to the Netherlands in 2007, where I have been living ever since.
I earn my living as a software programmer, mainly in a computer software called Microsoft Dynamics AX and .NET (For CV please see my LinkedIn). My greatest hobby is photography, which I have been doing since my university days. I started my hobby in the early 90s, when I was a student at Marmara University, after buying a Russian Zenith 12XP SLR film camera from a market stand. I got my first photography training on shooting black&white photos with that camera. I like film photography a lot and sometimes I still do it, but I also have a special interest in new technologies and digital photography. When I moved to the Netherlands, my budget allowed me to buy my first digital DSLR, a Nikon D40, and I got so excited about the advantages DSLRs has over shooting with film SLRs. Since then I am shooting in digital, mostly nature, wildlife and travel photos.
My interests besides photography are web design (like this website) mobile programming, psychology and meditation, Argentine tango dancing, and scuba diving.
I hope all of you enjoy my work and benefit from what I share on this website.
