Kerem Hanci brings a world view to his photography. Born and raised in Istanbul, he discovered photography as a child using an old Zenith Comet camera “liberated” from his father.
His career as a professional photographer began in Istanbul in 1988 working as a sports photographer for Cumhuriyet newspaper. In 1992, relocating to southern France, Kerem became an assignment photographer for Midi Libre, one of the premiere newspapers of Montpelier on the French Riviera. His search for knowledge and experience as a photographer ultimately brought him to the Los Angeles area where since 1997 he has focused his talents on the entertainment industry with set photography.
His unquenchable thirst for challenge and variety pushed him to diversify his portfolio and gave him an incredible experience covering many different aspects of life, business in a variety of sectors and industries.
Kerem brings to each photo session a masterful eye for detail as well as a passionate commitment to connect with each client to discover the real person. That commitment, combined with his brilliant skills in creative composition ensures that the camera sees beyond the surface to find the essence of each subject.
