Daily Inspiration: Meet Meltem Ulker

Hi Meltem, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself
After graduating with a Visual arts degree from St. Thomas University in Miami, I interned at a production company and got to learn all facets of production industry. I loved assisting stylists and producers on set and on location shoots. Because of my personal style, I picked a niche as a sports stylist and styled sponsored pro athletes for over 15 years on their ad campaign shoots. My connections in the production industry enabled me to start my own full-service production company.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Nothing comes easy, they don’t just hand you the clients. You have to be very outgoing, really love the business, make lots of connections and have lots of positive set energy as its many hours and you deal with all kinds of characters.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I’m a wardrobe stylist and a producer. I specialize in sports styling and I’m very proud to have styled almost every pro athlete alive, that is sponsored by major sports brands. I love casual/sportswear and have a my own unique way of mixing/layering sports brands with high fashion brands.

Can you share something surprising about yourself?
Everyone that works with me thinks that I’m a social butterfly outside of work too, just because I’m very friendly on set with everyone but once we wrapp, I love my alone time. I love taking myself out to dinners, exercise alone, alone long Beach walks and on my off days, I love just being home cooking or cleaning, that’s my meditation.
