The Big Apple is no stranger to people from all over the world. Most of them in fact arrive to this city of dreams with a bag and a big dream. Such is the amazing story from one of New York’s own, Sinem Yazici – photographer extraordinaire. She chased her dream all the way from Istanbul to the avenues of NYC becoming a success story that others and I, find both inspiring and influential.
Nowadays many thirty plus professionals want more than what the traditional career and business life can give them. Sinem too, felt a yearning for more. So after a highly successful career in Advertising and Marketing, she left Istanbul for New York. There, she studied fashion photography at the New York Film Academy, and now she’s become one of the most coveted men’s fashion photographers! Her work has been published in Esquire, Men’s Health, Glamour and many international magazines and she has worked with many top modeling agencies.
It’s never easy but she did it, making a name in the tough world of fashion and photography. She’s a great example of smart, strength and where determination can take you.
I loved Sinem at her first hello, her warmth and positive energy is infectious. We started talking and we couldn’t stop! She has a wonderful sense of humour and we found out that we share a lot of things in common, just the right ingredients for conversations that never end.
Check out her work below and if in NY book yourself a session and be the star.
