An urban photography safari

Our five-day trip to Istanbul got the nod in the Independent’s roundup of top creative breaks. “Gone are the days when photography holidays meant seeking out Athena poster images of palm-draped beaches or fluorescent cocktails backlit by a golden sunset. On Creative Escapes’ five-day photography tours of Istanbul, you’re not going to end up with hackneyed shots of the Blue Mosque or the Hagia Sophia. Instead, the company’s ultra-contemporary trips focus on giving a thorough understanding of cameras and creative techniques by homing in on some of the city’s coolest spots.”
