About Süleyman Dereköy


My name is Süleyman Dereköy. I’m a photographer.

It all started in the beginning of Summer of 2013 when I just wanted to learn a little Photoshop to crop and resize and maybe optimize my images on the web.

I started watching tutorials on Photoshop on Youtube and soon realized and amazed that there was a whole new world ahead of me to explore and simply cropping images were not enough.

Before that, I had nothing to do with photography. I took even less photos at that time than an average person who had a smart phone. Because I wasn’t using a smart phone back then.

That summer, I mean summer of 2013, for three months I watched tutorials day and night.

I edited thousands of images for a couple agencies whose owners were my friends.

Then I bought my first camera in October 2013.

I’m making photographs since…

And Photography became my life.

I became an Adobe Certified Expert on Photoshop CC which I was going to learn just a bit in the beginning.

After a very long time finally I’m back to photography where my heart and soul is.

Here is my portfolio.

I hope you enjoy.
