"I see great beauty in all things and I love capturing them. People sometimes ask me what I love so much about photography. The answer is simple. When you stop to take a photograph, you stop time for a moment."
- Murat Kilci
Murat Kilci spent his childhood exploring the beautiful sites where he was born and raised Istanbul, Turkey. He bought his rst 35mm Film Camera when he was 10 years old. Since then, it has become part of his life, it is his passion. Murat quickly established a reputation as a skilled and insightful photographer able to capture the drama of the moment with both air and compassion in his circle of friends and community.
He is a self-taught photographer, has been capturing images for over 30 years – specializing in his exquisite work on landscapes, architectural,on location, family, kids and pet photography. He is noted for his creativity in the field; not only in composition and lighting, but also in his use of equipment, and knowledge of photographic equipment and technique. He chooses natural light photography when possible and prefers bringing out the beauty in his images both black and white and color using only available light.
As a father of two beautiful children, he enjoys capturing images of people, kids and families, which he calls “Creating Memories”.
Here is how he describes himself “I am one of those “different” people who doesn’t just stop to smell the roses, I stop and photograph them. I see great beauty in all things and I love capturing them. People sometimes ask me what I love so much about photography. The answer is simple. When you stop to take a photograph, you stop time for a moment. That moment lives forever. We so quickly rush by life every day and miss the beauty around us. A buttery flying in the light breeze, the laughter of a child, or the glimpse of a flower’s first blooms. Photography is an art. As Ansel Adams once said, “You don’t take a picture, you make one.” and that’s what I like to do every time I look at the world through my camera’s viewfinder, make a picture, create memories.”
