Raised in London, Ahmet's passion for film making started from a young age using VHS, Hi8 & old 8mm cameras given to him from relatives who were wedding videographers. After graduating from the University of Westminster with a photography degree, he pursued his true passion for photography through the medium of motion pictures.
Using his photographic knowledge he successfully won an application and 2 year placement through the prestigious skillsets FT2 camera apprenticeship (funded by the likes of the BBC, Ch4 and major motion picture companies).
After his apprenticeship ended Ahmet spent a number of years in camera departments fortunate enough to assist through the ranks from camera trainee to focus puller for many of the greats in cinematography on feature films, commercials & promos. During this time he has honed the skills and knowledge learnt on set to then go on to shooting his own promos, commercials and films as a cinematographer.
