Asur On The Beach

I’ve mentioned before that for 10 years I was fortunate enough to have a holiday home in Turkey. On one trip shooting at dawn I captured this chap Asur Teber who was a security guard at one of the beachfront hotels in Gumbet.
He was more than willing for me to capture his picture in fact I eventually had to make my excuses to get back for my breakfast !.
He asked for me to send him a print and I always believe if people have given me their time and ask for a copy of the image it’s the very least I can do and always deliver on that.
I’m not sure if I mislaid his details but I decided to deliver the print the following year to the hotel. Unfortunately he apparently lived in northern Turkey and no longer worked at the hotel.
I left the print anyway in the hope it might one day find it’s way to him.


Hedo, Beach Water-sports Salesman Turkey

Having once owned a home in Turkey I was privileged to have visited the country many times over a ten year period.
This as you would expect also meant I got to make friends with some of the locals and those who worked in the area during the busy summer months.
Hedo was someone I always knew would be in the same place on the beach with the same big smile selling tourists water sports.
