Introduction

6 days ago I arrived in Istanbul, Turkey to film a new Street Hunt sponsored by Cosyspeed! Cosyspeed has sponsored a previous Street Hunt, the one we recorded in December 2014 in Hamburg, Germany. Visit the Street Photography in Hamburg, Germany post to read more about that or watch the Hamburg Street Hunt to get an even better experience.

I stayed in Istanbul for about 5 days (4 nights) and I have to say it was one of my best Street Photography trips ever. I got to see amazing new places, I was honoured to meet new people and lucky enough to make new friends. It was an experience that will be always remembered. From the first moment I arrived at my hotel until I left 5 days later, I only stopped shooting to sleep and eat. The rest of the time I was in the streets making photos, experiencing the life of Istanbul and widening my photographic horizons.
