A winning picture

Armagan is a 43 year old independent marketing manager whose hobbies include photography, windsurfing, and writing. With her husband (a very famous news programmer on Turkish TV) they are very curious about large cities outside of Istambul. This year she decided to come and “live” New York for a full month. Based in Queens and Armagan visited everything walking and taking subways. She also took a marketing seminar at NYU.

As Armagan was planning their trip from Turkey, her number one priority when coming to NY was to take pictures. She researched “photo tours in NY” including on twitter.
Citifari always responded to me. We established real and nice communication…  Always helpful and responsive…  I bought a first tour on the Internet after I went, I bought them all. Their Night photo tour was my first experience of citifari. I had never photographed at night and I didn’t have tripod. Luckily, Citifari had some for me… I shoot with a Canon 550D and with the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 and Sigma 50-150mm f2.8 lenses.
I went to the night tour with a sweet team of other photographers.  I didn’t think about learning new skills. I just always thought “taking photos equals taking photos”. My plan was to see new places and visit… But, now I have added and learnt new techniques about taking photos and how to use my camera better…  Citifari is valuable and very reliable… Thank you very much…
When I came back, GFK, the leading market research agency in Turkey announced a photo contest about “Change” on social networks. I sent an email with two of my pictures. They selected the one I took with Citifari to be published on their calendar 2013. This calendar and my picture will be at millions of GFK’s customers in Turkey, this is really a big deal.

I plan to do more of these photo visits. New places, new trips, new experience… Now I realize that taking pictures means continual personal improvement, I feel strong about an exhibition in Istanbul…
