My name is Hande Gurdogan. I am a portrait photographer.
I am so glad you are here! I specialize in photographing everyday women in a contemporary, magazine style. I am a big lover of beauty, elegance and simplicity.
I am passionate about creating a legacy of beautiful portraits at every age that capture your beauty, inner light and personality. My goal is to encourage you to celebrate your life, in the moment you are in right now. Whether it is embracing self beauty, motherhood, a moment with loved ones or a celebrating a milestone such as a birthday, an anniversary, a graduation or a holiday, your life is worth documenting. I believe in the importance of leaving a visual legacy behind for yourself, your children, grandchildren, and your loved ones to enjoy.
My job as a portrait photographer is to take the most beautiful photograph you have ever seen of yourself so that you can cherish this for the rest of your life. I treat my photoshoots as special occasions and experiences intended to celebrate your life or the people you love.
Most of the women I photograph are not models. They are everyday women like you and me - mothers, daughters, sisters, best friends, grandmothers - who decide to get in front of the camera and create beautiful portraits that would last for a lifetime.
In March 2020, I reached the Associate Photographer level within THE PORTRAIT MASTERS - an international association of contemporary portrait photographers all over the world - judged by a team of Master Judges.
I am honored to receive this accreditation as The Portrait Masters sets the 'high professional standards' in portrait photography and ensure clients that they are working with the true professionals in portrait industry.
When was the last time you had a beautiful portrait?
Everybody loves beautiful portraits but avoids the camera thinking "I am not photogenic", "I hate having my photos taken", "I need to loose weight", "I'm too old" or "I feel awkward in front of the camera". We go through a period in our lives where we wouldn’t allow ourselves to be photographed because we are unhappy with ourselves. As a result, we stop existing in photos without even realizing it.
Here is the good news, it is not your job to be 'photogenic'
It's my job as a photographer to make you feel relaxed in front of the camera, make you look gorgeous and capture the most beautiful photographs you have ever seen of yourself. This is about seeing yourself at your best version.
Let me show you how beautiful you are!
I want to take you through the entire transformation of a beautiful magazine style photoshoot that will make you look and feel like a celebrity for a day. Join me to experience this transformation in my studio!
I encourage you to exist in photographs for yourself, for your children and people who love you. One day these photographs will be priceless and your loved ones will treasure them forever.
