Elif Okay


Elif Okay is a freelance photographer and storyteller, living and working in Berlin, Germany.

She was born and raised in Istanbul, where she started her photography career. After receiving her B.A in Photography and Video in 2018, she moved to Berlin. She has been focussing her career on both commercial and personal projects.

By letting each image tell a story with soft colours and natural light, Elif creates her raw and intimate world. She captures the essence of candid moments, evoking emotions and weaving narratives within her images.

Elif, alongside photography, offers directing, scriptwriting, creative production and direction.

Selected clients: Zalando, Wolt, Etsy, Selina Deutschland.
