Founder and owner Cemhan Biricik has fashion and photography in his blood. His parents, both designers, moved him from Istanbul to Paris at the age of 4, eventually settling in the United States. Here in the U.S. is where he fell in love with photography, and photography loves him back, judging from the more than 15 awards Cemhan has won from National Geographic, Sony, and the International Loupe.
In his daily client work, Cemhan's photography strives to capture the beauty in every day life. His subjects range from the abstract and wildlife to high fashion and weddings, and he's snapped shots of celebrities such as Miss Pennsylvania and Cesar Conde of Univision.
Cemhan's company, Biricik Media, goes beyond photography to provide videography services that capture media for magazines, ad campaigns, and special events.
