I was raised from the age of 12 by an amazing monk, Pra Suwich, in Tatong Temple in Ekamai, Bangkok, to live in the Buddhist way. He taught me how to live a compassionate life and supported me through university to realise my ultimate dream to graduate in Cinematography and Photography. 
After graduating in 1991, I worked for one of Thailand's best-known production houses, Kantana Studios.  
Being impatient, I became a cameraman within a year. Quickly progressing to become a freelance Director of Photography, heading-up my own film crew. 
After a near-fatal car accident followed by losing my wife a few years later, I decided to change my focus to photography.  
I love to capture candid shots which show emotions and personalities. Things which bring happiness, love, compassion and laughter.  
I shoot destination weddings all around Thailand and South-East Asia.  
I like to think I am a lucky man! 

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am located in Krabi, in the south of Thailand. Travel expenses outside if this area are applicable. Just let me know where you are getting married and I will calculate the charges.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

A LONG time now. I graduated in Cinematography and Photographer over 25 years ago and have spent my life working behindthe lens with both moving and still images. I have focused on weddings for the past 12 years and have lost count on how many weddings I have shot. I am always the main photographer.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Relaxed, informal, candid, photojournalistic with a creative twist. For me, the importance is capturing those special, one off moments that bring a smile to your face and a tear of happiness to your eye.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

A typical wedding package is 8 hrs with 2 photographers to capture different angles, each with slightly differnt styles and creative eye. I believe that a wedding portfolio should tell a visual story of your day. The getting ready through to the party atmosphere.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I prefer to conduct e-meetings prior to your wedding day and meet in person to make you both feel comfortable, go through your brief

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I graduated with a degree in Cinematography & Photography from Bangkok Tecnial Campus over 25 years ago. I secured a position at Kantana Studios where I learnt from the ground up as a cameraman to running my own as the lead cameraman and Director of Photography. I then continued with a freelance career in TV filming before concentrating primarily in photography.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I like to blend into the background on a wedding day as I believe the day is all about the bride and groom. Whilst I remain professional throughout the shoot, I like to take a relaxed approach to reduce any stress and nerves the bride and groom usually have on such an emotional day.
