I had booked an afternoon and evening with Kemal, and expected that he would take me to interesting paces where I would be left to m own devices to take my photos. e certainly went interesting places, but Kemal also gave me instructive and helpful advice on my technique and the use of my camera. It was a fascinating day - we walked and walked, and used public ferries to criss cross the Golden Horn and Bosphorous to villages. I walked through dark busy alleys to see silver smith workshops in the old town, walked up 3 flights of uneven stone steps to emerge on the roof top of an old building with the most beautiful view over Istanbul, stood in the second courtyard of a mosque during the call to prayer and felt it through every fibre of my body...Kemal was very patient and generous - I had to call it a day early as I was so tired and had to be up at 5 am the next day, but Kemal was ready to keep going! If you love photography, do this. Its not cheap, but very very worth it.
