Welcome to my portfolio introduction page. Ipek is my name. It means “Silk” in my mother language. I was born and raised in İstanbul but now I’m living in Eskişehir where I studied at my university.
I always loved photographing as a hobby. In the year 2015, I completed Basic Photography Education at EFSAD (Eskişehir Photographic Arts Association) in order to improve my abilities. Following my education, I decided to become a stock photographer and I’ve been selling photographs all over the world ever since.
Stock photography is a category of photography that is put up for sale and is resold as many times to meet the demands of clients. The photographer or stock photography distributor has ownership of the images, and the commercial designer has some limited usage of the photo (which is set out in the Terms of Service by the company you purchase the stock photos from).
At the moment I’m contributing to several microstock sites such as Shutterstock, iStock, Dreamstime, and Adobe Stock. Each day I’m working on new photos in order to get better and grow my portfolio.
