Umit Zeytincioglu is a Cypriot photographer who specializes in fashion and portrait photography. Her journey with photography started over ten years ago when she was studying journalism. Her early work was mainly focused on portraiture with a keen interest in fashion. It was then she studied Fashion Photography at London School of Media, Film and TV.
In 2012, she moved to London to attend post-graduate studies. Here, she found her interest in conceptual photography and produced work focusing on memory. Her photographs depicting an imagined reality and lost memories are shown in exhibitions with her fellow classmates during her studies.
After graduating from her MA in Photographic Studies at Westminster University in 2014, she has worked as a baby, children and family portrait photographer with a private company for 2.5 years. In 2017, her creative path steered into teaching and gave her many opportunities to reinvest in her photography. She has been teaching at different places since then and recently joined LSP family.
Umit continues to photograph every day with passion and her fashion portraits have been published in multiple magazines.
