2019 | Turan Hill Lounge V2

Published in Web Design Projects 2017 - 2020

Turan Hill Lounge is a Boutique Yoga Hotel with sea, mountain and valley views. We offer daily yoga classes, organizing relaxing yoga holidays.

I designed & built both this 140 page multilingual website (2019 version) and the earlier one (2014 version) with Joomla CMS, except this new one is mobile friendlier, uses a swipeable gallery system, a better menu system, and now also has a blog system integrated.

About Photography

Published in General Information

Some website projects also require photography work, for example lookbook / catwalk shoots for fashion designer clients, product shoots, food photography, or registration of certain events like festivals / concerts, also interior / exterior design photography for resorts, cafe's, clubs and hotels. So besides my personal photography projects, I also offer professional photography services for my clients.

I have been a photographer since 2005, and as you may imagine my portfolio has grown very large, due to this reason I have chosen to build a seperate website for my photography portfolio.

This portfolio website for my free and commercial work, marcmikaelian.com, is in developement, but should be online within a few months.

I currently work with the following Fujifilm equipment for photography & videography:

- Fujifilm X-T3 Body (with 4k video up to 120p)
- XF 16mm (f1.4) wide lens
- XF 23mm (f2) wide lens
- XF 18-55 (f2.8-4) zoom lens
- XF 50-140mm (f2.8) tele-zoom lens
- 3 softboxes with florescent lighting for food & product photography

I had the pleasure to work with the following (Nikon) equipment from 2005 until end of 2018:

- D750 Body (also HD video & timelapse)
- 14-24mm (f2.8) wide lens
- 24-70mm (f2.8) zoom lens
- 70-200mm (f2.8) tele-zoom lens
- 105 mm (f2.8) macro lens
- 50 mm (f1.4) prime lens
- 20 mm (f2.8) prime lens
- SB-800 Flash

But I recently traded in my Nikon set for a newer and compacter Fujifilm set !!!

2014 | Turan Hill Lounge

Published in Web Design Projects 2013 - 2016

Turan Hill Lounge was the very first campsite in Kabak Bay (South of Turkey). For the last 20 years, it has been admired as a hidden getaway by nature lovers throughout the world due to its unique location, appealing style in every detail, and delicious home-cooked style food.

I designed & built this multilingual website with Joomla CMS. I also was hired for the photography of this resort.
