Tell us about yourself. What's the story behind you and your business?
I'm Gozde, the founder of Lune Creatives and Marketing Club Miami. My journey began in corporate marketing roles in Turkey, where I honed my skills and gained valuable experience. In 2018, I embarked on a new chapter by moving to the U.S. on a tourist visa.
Over time, I realized that the corporate culture didn't align with my values, which led me to explore freelancing and digital nomadism. In 2020, after obtaining my green card and working in startups, I decided to take a bold step and start Lune. Lune reflects my belief in authentic connections and storytelling, bridging the gap between brands and their ideal audiences.
My journey has shaped both me and Lune, and I'm here to change the narrative in marketing, empowering businesses to tell unique stories and build lasting relationships with their audience.

Why is branding photography important for your business?
Branding photography is like the face of your business. It's what people see first, and it can leave a lasting impression. Just like you'd want to look your best for an important meeting, your brand should put its best foot forward with great visuals. It tells your brand's story, shows off your products or services, and helps customers connect with you emotionally. Plus, it makes your brand look professional and trustworthy. So, it's not just about pictures; it's about creating a visual identity that resonates with your audience.
What's your favorite quote?
One quote that really resonates with me is from Rumi: "The wound is the place where the light enters" It's like a reminder that even in our toughest times, there's an opportunity for growth and learning. It's all about finding the light in unexpected places.
