Well May has been great. Several shoots, a boat ride with music, an open air festival, and an Italian dancer doing tradition Indian dance, and even a book fair. So straight into it.
Met up with Buse Cermia again for some spring shots and sea captain shots. If you follow the blog you'll know that she is studying to be a sea captain. The below shot is perhaps my favourite so far this year. Find all of her shoots here, including more from this shoot.
She came along with friends, both quite camera shy. The one with the covered hair sweared to me she wasn't photogenic. What do you think?
And the sea captain set.
A few from the final fashion shoot (for a while) for Instyle (all photos)
Next up is the book sale evening. It was at the historic Rustem Kitab Evi, a coffe shop and art gallery with event space at the back. Met some good people that night, including guests from the south (headscalf picture). Mete played a wonderful music set.
A few photos from Cine Miles, it was the manangers sister's birthday. Popped in as a curtesy. Seren was there and did a quick fire show.
Had a day out with my sister and parents for mothers day. I took a photo of the family, and some slow cook ovens in the Maronite Village.
On the same day, but late afternoon to evening, there was an open air festival in Girne / Kyrenia. My friend Seren from Sarp Studio organised some dancers and aerialists. Rita and Evgeniya Full Event HERE

I was lucky enough that Giulia agreed to meet for a shoot. She is a wonderful person, smart, interested, polite and a hard worker genuinely captivated by the stories she dances. Some scenes include stories of the gods, sometime angry, and forms that mean things. Great stuff. Full Album here
And finally two portraits, first is a sports instructor, the second is a coffee person studying sociology.
