In April 2013 a series of meetings addressing working conditions, particularly in the advertising industry, created an opportunity for cinematographers to meet in person and discuss common concerns and make several collective decisions. The number of participating cinematographers rapidly increased.  After a year of intense meetings and discussions the group recognized the need to establish itself as a formal legal identity.  Hence, in February 2014 the Cinematographers’ Association of Turkey (GYD) was established through collective agreement.
