Please tell us a little bit about yourself.

I was born and raised in Ankara. I can say, I am the guy who is fed by art and try to produce art.

Your latest music video was shot at the Lomography Gallery Store Istanbul, what motivated you to shoot it there?

The script is based on photography. I am a passionate Lomography user, so if the video is to be about photography, I thought it should be related to Lomography.

Here is the video of “Benimle Yan”

Making of from Özde

Have you ever used analogue camera?
Yes, a lot :)

We know that you are shooting during your gigs. How do you feel when you are shooting analogue during your performance?

I have to say that I love analogue photography since my university years. I want the excitement of analogue. The feeling of adrenalin on the way to the lab creates a different meaning to my shots. Its very important for me to be one with the audience. In the launch concert in Ankara I thought I could have that magnificent moment in a shot, so I started shooting with the “Spinner 360°:”http://shop.lomography.com/spinner-360/ from that day on in every concert!

Do you use any other analogue objects?

Of course! Especially a lot of the equipment that I use in my studio is analogue. I use technology to have different results, but digital is the simulation of analogue, we shouldn’t forget this.

How do you describe the Sppiner 360° in 4 words

Spinner! Basic, revolutionary, observer

Where do you want to be and what do you want to do now, who do you want to shoot?

Now I want to be in Sao Paolo’s favela shooting the children who are playing football. Without having trouble of course.

Who do you want to shoot most?

Serge Gainsbourg.

The Spinner 360° goes beyond the confines of standard panoramic cameras. See everything around you (literally!), and be swept away by truly spectacular results. Head to our Online Shop and get your own Spinner 360°!
