In 2008, I involved in the world of tourism and documenting many moments of travel, but as time goes by, in 2011 I became interested in getting into the world of photography , I was interested in capturing moments of culture, nature and the activities of people in general.
With minimal photographic equipment at that time I was using a Canon 5D Mark II camera with 17-40mm and 70-200mm lenses, I maximized what I had.
However, in 2014 my photography hobby really paid off because at that time there were a lot of photographers from within and outside the country who wanted to come to my place to capture cultural moments, nature or people’s activities, coincidentally where I live now is not far away. from the Mount Bromo area.
Photography changes my perspective because what I have done so far requires observation, interaction and communication so that comfort is formed in my work.

Indonesia sits on the Ring of Fire, an area with some of the most active volcanoes in the world. Many of the country’s volcanoes are. the ones famous Mount Bromo is among the best known, largely thanks to its incredible views, particularly when standing over the caldera at sunrise. Bromo’s peak was blown off in an eruption, and you can still see white smoke spewing from the mountain. Bromo is surrounded by a vast stretching sea of volcanic sand that radiated a certain mystical beauty. Mount Bromo and the Tengger area are also the home of the Tengger sub-ethnic group who still preserve their age-old traditions and way of life. Here, you can observe the unique indigenous culture and traditions of the ‘Tenggerese’ including their rituals and ceremonies.
