Attraction details
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.

This was 100% fun!!
We walked by when the studio was closed and we were amazed by the professional work they do. We were positively surprised in the morning, when we decided to take a photoshoot in historical costumes...and a moustache for me.
The photographer Neslihan was very helpful in suggesting poses. She was also listening to our wishes and, as a result, we went back home with 10 digital and 1 hard copy of 10 memorable and 'funny' pictures of us..

We saw mention of this photo studio on Trip Advisor and thought it looked like great fun. Our (wonderful) guide from Matiana Travel in Turkey contacted them on our behalf to set up an appointment. We had the time of our lives! There's a large assortment of costumes and lots of great "looks" to be had. The two women managing it made the experience fun and took many wonderful photos. It was quick and easy. You can view your photos by the time you are out of your costume, select the ones you want and have a CD burned almost instantly. If you enjoy a good time and want to have a fun, unique souvenir of your visit to Turkey, this is a don't miss experience.

We went to Istanbul in May ...The Giycek Old Time Phot Studio's place, the experience and the photos you get, everything was amazing.
It was a great fun and a memorable adventure. We loved to be sultans....and for the next time I think I would like to rent sultans's costumes and 'll go to visit Topkapi !
