I’ve travelled the world… I’m not rich, I just got the right jobs. One of the companies I worked for employed Filipinos. I made some good friends, they invited me to their homes. And so my relationship with Asia began.
I’ve always enjoyed taking pictures, but never considered photography as a hobby. I was an early adopter of smartphones, in particular, the original Sony Ericsson phones with their outstanding cameras. Pictures I shot over ten years ago with a Sony Ericsson Xperia still hold up good today… and some will appear on this website.
I arrived in Thailand in 2014, when the anti-government street protests were in full swing. It soon became clear, my (flagship) smartphone camera was woefully inadequate. I bought my first ‘decent’ camera, a second hand Fuji bridge camera, with super zoom. Although highly delighted with the results, it was only a matter of time before its limitations became apparent. I bought my first DSLR. A year later, I progressed to ‘shooting raw’ and Adobe Lightroom.
