Interview With

Murat Süyür

Hi Murat and welcome to TWTP. I would like to thank you for doing this interview, let’s start by telling us a little about your background and how you got started in the industry?

I was born in Istanbul in 1984, Studied Engineering in university but it was always a passion to create some concepts and photograph them while studying. The years after my graduation instead of doing my profession I continued working on my portfolio. I focused on still life first because it was a great opportunity for me to show some maniplation skills. Than my work's began to publish some magazines. After that time I started to work with a presenting agency. Since that time I'm doing advertising and still life shootings for agencies, clients and magazines.

Can you please walk us through your process as an advertising photographer when working with your clients?

Usually clients or agencies come with an idea and it's brief. Thats like a mood board or a story of the shooting that they want to do. First of all client, me and my production team makes a meeting and decide about details like the mood, atmosphere, places to shoot, props, talents, color and style. According to the job it takes around a week to get prepared for shooting.. Production process is one of the most important part of shooting. So we sure that everything is certain, arranged properly and on time. After all, post proccessing is like where the magic begins. its where you play " god " So its important to take your time and pay a real attention about your work.

In your opinion how do you know when you’ve captured the perfect shot during the photoshoot?

It is like a match game. Before shooting you usually perform and idealize in your mind what it should be like and in shooting, when it matches with the picture you shoot, thats it. it's the perfect one.

What would you say is the most challenging part of your job?

Creating a unique style is the most challenging and important part of the job. You should always keep your works visionary, inspiring and new.

Thanks for joining us, do you have any final words for our readers?
