Intro: I started taking picture –like most of us, I assume- during our vacations at beautiful places or at a family gathering or graduation. Only few of us, started from a school of photography. I did not say that formal education in photography was not good, some of them were excellent. What I am saying is most of us falling in love first, before seriously learn about photography. I am already deeply in love with photography, but have no chance to enter any formal education related to this field. I went to Univesitas Sriwijaya (BS, 1982), University of Kentucky (MS, 1987), and Cornell University (Ph.D, 1989), but none of them in photography.

I cannot recall when exactly I took my first shot –but it should be before era of digital camera; but honestly, I started to spend more time and more seriously in photography since 2006. So, I cannot call myself a photographer, not even an amateur photographer, but yes! I do love photography and eager to learn more and more about it. This is the main reason I joined TrekNature. Yes, I have learned a lot from critiques [including your critiques] and will learn more….

Besides photography, I also love traveling [or may be because I like traveling, then my passion of photography develops]. I have visited several countries, including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Hongkong, China, Taiwan, Japan, India, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, France, Italy, USA, Australia, and Morocco. However, in most cases, I did not have much time for taking picture during these ‘formal’ visits. In the past, most of my photos were traveling photos [of interesting places to visit], documentary photos, but lately I am more interested in nature photography….
