When I started photography as a hobby in 2003, I never imagine that I will be seriously involve in photography.

I love to travel and that is what I started to know about photography.

In 2003, I decided to learn photography more seriously, changed my pocket camera to DSLR.

I took photography lessons, joined photo hunting, joined the photo clubs and started to join photo competitions, both nationally and internationally.

My interest subject of photography is about people and cultures. Even when I take landscape photography, I always tend to

include people in my pictures.

As Indonesia is a cultural rich country, I travelling around Indonesia to take pictures of cultural events and festivals.

I visited villages, I meet and interact with many people from children to old people.

Photography has already become part of my life, a medium to express my artistic feelings, a medium to broaden my vision.

Photography has taught me about lives and made me become more sensitive to the people lives surround me.

Photography is a medium to share with others and a medium to meet many new friends.
