I’m born and raised in Africa. I studied product design but I have a big interest in photography and videography. I moved to London five years ago to follow job opportunities. I shot for magazine and a lot of other things, making up my job as a photographer and I became really passionate towards it.
.
To me photography is like helping people in someway. I believe that people are pretty as they are. I want to show the people we don’t need fake or artificial stuff to make us proud of our body or ourselves. I want to give them the confident they deserve because they already pretty as they are.
.
Recently I would say my style is moving towards more real life photography. Even if I shoot swimwear I want my picture to look more real. When the model were posing too much I often would say ‘no don’t pose’. I just want when people see my picture they feel like it’s a normal life. That’s why I’m moving to analog picture more and more.

I was born and raised in Jakarta, but I had lived in Australia for 15 years and during those years I pursued tertiary education, got married and had a family in Sydney. Before moving to Bali, I moved back to my hometown, Jakarta.

In the last 14 years, we were enterpreneur, running our own wedding photography & videography. After moving to Bali, we founded I Choose Bali as we found Bali is such a unique place to attract many people from all around the world to live here. And those personal stories can be such inspirations to the world

We’ve always thought of retiring in Bali one day, as our work brought us to Bali plenty of times. The dream came true much earlier, and Bali offers much more than we expected, and now I understand why people choose to live here. It’s simple life here in Bali, it’s powerful but humble at the same time. It’s truly the best of both worlds between western & asian culture.

Bali has all the elements to support us to be productive and reach our goals, but at the same time having a meaningful and enjoyable life and still be ourselves . And I’m grateful to be here.

I grew up in the capital city of Canada, Otawa. I lived there until I was around 16-17. Then I moved to Quebec. That’s where I went to cinema school. After graduating I wandered around a little bit and then made my own video cinema company that lasted for around eight years until I lost inspiration and felt the call to go somewhere else.

A friend of mine invited me to go to southeast Asia, to the Philippines. I went there, she had family because her parents are Filipinos. She had to come to Bali for a week for work and asked me if I wanted to come. I didn’t really know much about Bali but I just came anyway.

Here in Bali I met Nia and her parents. A family of local that rescue and help street dogs. They keep struggling for some reasons. Especially Nia, she has the will to help the animals but she’s so caught up in survival. So, I decided to use my camera again, to shoot something for good things.
