Giycek Old Time Photo Studio is the one & only old time photo studio in Istanbul and it is based in Galata district very close to both Galata Tower and Tunel Square on Istiklal Street. Our issue is to provide fun, original, unforgettable experience and long lasting memory of Istanbul for Istanbul travellers. We have a wide range of costumes of different periods during Ottoman Era under the concepts of Dynasty, Millitary and much more.

It was a lovely visit at this place. Photographic quality is marvelous and one of the best hospitality. Best part was providing us with the best service even when they were closed. 5 starts and lifetime recommendations to this place.

Every thing is there for a fun photoshoot. The clothes, the vails and turbans, shoes and even jewelry. You get a big print, neatly put in a special photoframe and a protetictive envelope. Photos are also send fdigitally per email. Great service and super results.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
