I was born in Surabaya, 1977. My father is a collector of cameras, antique cameras. I guess my exposure to photography really started at a very young age. I started learning and dealing with camera was with Nikon FM3. My first Digital SLR camera was Nikon D100 which is now converted to an Infra-Red (IR) only camera. I love working with passionate people, positive energy and I like to surround myself with energetic and happy people. I graduated from the University of New South Wales - Sydney, Australia. Got my Masters of Commerce and Technology Management enables me to work with people and learnt a great deal of management and business. Photography is my main hobby and I couldn't resist to go anywhere without my camera. I took part-time and freelance works as Photographer's Assistant in Australia and have worked with wonderful photographers ranging from landscape, portrait, commercial and still life photography businesses.
I am a father to my 2 kids, Farrel and Megan, and am married to my beautiful wife, Lisa who is now one of the Managing Directors of our own studio, Portrait Studio. Me and my business partner, Leo CA, founded Portrait Studio in 2005 and has now grown to one of the top lists of Wedding Photographers in Indonesia. My works have been published in Bazaar Wedding and Cosmopolitan Bride in Indonesia. I find Wedding Photo Journalism very interesting. I believe that every wedding has a story to tell and every love has a tale to unfold. I respect my clients, the bride and the groom, other wedding vendors and people around me in this industry. We are now able to shoot in average of not more than 8 weddings a month. My greatest inspirations are Annie Leibovitz, Kevin Kubota, Jerry Ghionis, James Nachtwey, Marcus Bell, and many more. They give me inspirations, ideas, more to a motivational booster to achieve better every time.
