OCTOBER 16, 2019 | WORDS BY BESTE ZEYBEL | @BESTEZEYBEL
It comes as little surprise to those familiar with the works of fashion photographer Beste Zeybel that she began honing her craft in the world of fine art & design. After developing an obsession with storytelling through pictures from a young age, Zeybel’s aesthetic has evolved over the years to merge minimalism with stark graphics.
Zeybel spent 7 years in the world of advertising as an Art Director and credits this chapter with allowing her to draw parallels between the world of still photography, and bringing narratives to life.
Today, her portfolio tells a tale of dramatic backdrops, sharp lines and strong characters, a combination that made her the ideal fit for Skye & Staghorn’s upcoming campaign, Femme Élan, set in Turkey. We sat down recently with the budding photographer to learn a little bit more about what makes her tick.
"I’m constantly playing with spaces, colours and graphic visuals which help me to create the style I do."
