LINKEDIN profile :
Hello, I’m a food photographer based in Bali. After years of living overseas, the journey took me back to motherland Indonesia. Now I’m happily settled and made Bali my new home. Being in the most amazing place on earth, I choose to spend each moment enjoying mother nature, soaking in all the beauty of rice fields, rolling waves and sunsets.
The food here is absolutely gorgeous. From small little warung babi guling to hip cafes on Seminyak street. I’m perfectly in my element. My love of food photography is about making that piece of bread looks absolutely scrumptious or that perfectly cooked rib eye steak looks incredibly juicy that makes you want to dive right in.
Taking my passion to the next level, I joined a photography summer program run by School of Visual Arts New York, a multidisciplinary college of art, design & photography in New York City, known for its innovative curriculum. Some of my work were exhibited during an intercultural show in Manhattan, New York.
My photography skills were developed through a mix of self learning, joining photography classes, actively involved in clubs and group walks. My photography style was defined with the help of a seasoned Dutch photographer, Baja van Hulst through photography intensive courses in the past 3 years. Thank you Baja! I completed a Photography Summer Residency Program SVA headed by Abby Robinson, a MFA professor.
Currently freelancing with a few publishing companies in Bali but I’m still available for other freelancing work, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org

My gear is full frame Nikon D800 and a Nikon D700 as backup, coupled with solid Nikkor lenses 105mm macro, 24-70mm, 70-200mm f/2.8, 60mm – also another macro lens, 50mm and several creative lenses for various effects e.g. tilt shift, free lensing. Not that I’m bluffing off my gear, but if image-quality is important to you, than you’d want to have a good solid camera to produce your images.
One last thing, I’m proudly Indonesian. Please support local talents and hire my fellow Indonesian photographers. Give us a chance to prove that we also have talents despite our skin and hair colour. We have passion and integrity and most importantly working legally.
