Coming from a family of artists and formally educated in science and business (he has a BS degree from WPI and an MBA from Columbia), photography proved to be Ali’s life's calling to which he brings considerable technical acumen both behind the camera and in understanding the needs of hi-tech and business clients. Ali's stock photography is also used by numerous travel and educational publishers worldwide.
Based in Istanbul, Turkey, Ali is equally adept at both still photography and video.
Ali explores his artistic side through his fine art photography which has been featured in four single artist gallery exhibits in Istanbul and another in New York City.
When he's not in his studio, working on location or leading a workshop, he enjoys flying his paramotor.
