Owner description: Giycek Old Time Photo Studio is the one & only old time photo studio in Istanbul and it is based in Galata district very close to both Galata Tower and Tunel Square on Istiklal Street. Our issue is to provide fun, original, unforgettable experience and long lasting memory of Istanbul for Istanbul travellers. We have a wide range of costumes of different periods during Ottoman Era under the concepts of Dynasty, Millitary and much more.

“A truly amazing experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2015

We spent a morning of Funtime at the studio playing dress up and having an ottoman empire photo shoot. It is a great way to spend time with friends and family. The lady photographer is great and we got some amazing portraits in both hard and soft copies.

“Unique Activity and surely a memorable one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2015

It was a great experience to have our photos taken in traditional outfits of the turks back in the 1900s(just guessing). I really fancy the uniform of the emperors at that time and got myself in it for a shoot! Awesome services from the shop lady boss/founder/owner of Giycek Photo Studio. Will come back again for another shoot if I were to visit Istanbul again! Hehs!

“Fun! Much better option than palace and cistern”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2015

So much fun with a lot of costume and accessory choices from two different Ottoman eras. Quality of costumes looked better than other places like Topkapi palace and basilica cistern. We weren't rushed. Staff were helpful and very friendly. Pictures came out great and printed fast. It was 85 TL for 2 people and a picture.

“Enjoyed it very much!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2014

It was great fun! Highly recommended for couples, family and friends! One little tips: better think of some funny faces/posts before going! So you won't end up with some serious and boring pictures. :)
