Gökhan was born in the beautiful city of Izmir (Turkey) and moved to London at a very young age because the sun, the beach and crystal-clear waters weren’t as fun as grey skies and concrete buildings.
Also, he was just a little kid when he moved to the UK, so he pretty much had to live wherever his parents lived.
When he’s not busy writing about himself in the third person, Gökhan loves taking photographs of people, places and fashion-inspired scenes.
He was introduced to photography at the other end of the camera, modelling for photographers around the UK, Spain and Turkey, and that’s when he discovered he wanted to get closer to the creative process.
Gökhan bought his first DSLR camera at the age of 23, and has never spent longer than a few hours away from it.
After a gruelling six years studying medicine at Imperial College, and two years working in hospital as a doctor, Gökhan finally made the decision to follow his passion and dedicate his time exclusively to photography.
His list of clients includes cello players, DJs, models, cupcake bakers, personal trainers, hair stylists, plus unwilling friends and family.
