Three years later he began to pursue photography due to the fact that it can act as a medium to channel his passion for visualization.
With this background, he has decided to take some photography training in PannaFoto Institute, Permata Photojournalist Grant, the Angkor Photo Workshop, and Fellowship at Noor Image Amsterdam. Since 2010, he has been working as freelance photographer and also a travel writer.
