Beytan Erkmen

Beytan began his career as a studio portrait photographer in 1990. Throughout his career he has produced images for companies in fashion, hair and beauty, theatre production and performing arts and has been published internationally. More recent projects within education, leisure and product industries, have allowed Beytan to show his creativity and flare. In 2009-2012 he gained a MFA Masters of Fine Art Photography Degree at University of Creative Arts, Farnham. After more than 20 years, his enthusiasm, passion and dedication for photography, is still as fresh as the day he was given his first camera.

Always passionate about his subject, Beytan worked with independent studios in a training and advisory role and has always been interested in teaching photography to inspire others. He provides photography tuition for private clients on a one to one basis, alongside teaching photography at University of Creative Arts, Farnham and enjoys sharing his extensive knowledge of both digital photography and the traditional darkroom.
