1.- When and how did you first get interested in photography?
It was when I was in high school, I love to collect the bookmarks especially for bible. I was always amazed when I knew some of them were taken by my seniors. And then in the year 2000, I studied as a Graphic Designer and one of the majors is photography. So, it was like “finally, I have a chance to learn photographing things”
2.- If you could go on a photo shoot with anyone who would it be and why?
Maybe Benjamin Von Wong, he is my number one idol. He has brilliant idea and always out of the box with positive influence.
3.- If you could give a younger version of yourself a bit of advice on photography what would it be?
Travel, I really want to travel around Indonesia, it’s like my dream since knowing photography, so actually I had 8 years to travel after getting married before I had kids.
