Tell us something about yourself

I was born in Thailand and had moved to London since 2005 and started to self taught in fashion photography. However in 2015 took a Mastered program with Nick Knight and now working at commercial studio in east London

How and when did you get into photography?

I got in to photography since 2009 after I have tried different subject such as fashion & Art design, and web design, when I was studying fashion & Art design I then have to do a lot of research taking a lot of pictures when people see my images they said I should take photography course that how it started I guess.

What does photography mean to you?

Everything. Absolutely everything I just LOVE being creative and being surrounded by creative people, model, make up artist , hair stylist , wardrobe stylist or art director etc.

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

My photography style is grand gesture, feminine , luxurious couture

Where do you get inspiration from?

I can get inspiration everywhere from a book I read or movie I watch also culture , words that people say or a street sign, it can be anything you just need to keep your eye open and be alert all the time

Think you in advance what you want in the picture?

I always have my ideas on board and quite clear of what I want normally I tried to put energy into it when making imagery.

Studio, on location or both?

I love shooting both studio and location however both have advantages and disadvantages for example in studio you be able to control your lights situation but outdoor location can be AMAZING but if weather is not up for shoot then you have to think a plan B

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

HA..HA. it has to be a professional can’t be just a hobbyist I have invested a lot of time and money and have been working for sometime in this filed.

What has been your most memorable session and why?

That when I got my first publication it was so thrilled when you work so hard and it pay off

What has been the biggest source of inspiration in your work?

Fine art I guess as my childhood I always love drawing and paining and a designer as well as a model.

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

My first camera was Nikon D80 but didn't feel it suited me, so I changed to a canon 5D mark I, and fell in love with canon ever since, now I upgrade to 5D mark iii, I think every camera gear has got their very own unique pros and cons, so it depends on what you want to achieve really.

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
