Started seriously in photography was triggered by the idea of showing the world of what can be found in the ocean. My learning curve started by asking around. Only when I met Mr. Peter H van Bragt, I understand how to do manual adjustment on camera.
I then continued with basic photography class in Jakarta. It was there I met Mr. Alex Hamzah, who shared lots of theory and case studies.
My first camera was Canon Ixus, a compact camera, which I used for underwater photography. A year later I switched to Canon G12 with Ikelite underwater housing with two strobes. Couple of year later, I used SLR camera. It is Canon 5D Mark III with Nauticam housing.
Never stop learning and shooting ........... and making more friends all over the world :)
