SUNAN

Sunan Bio 3

- I'm from Bali, precisely Sengkidu village, Manggis, Karangasem district, East Bali. I was second of 3 brothers. My older brother died in infancy and my younger brother works at one of the five star restaurants in Seminyak.

- I started photography as a hobby with my camera phone and finally decided to buy a DSLR camera in October 2012.

- Bali is an island of thousands of temples with diverse cultures and customs that are different to each other. Many foreigners visit to enjoy the beauty of our paradise island. Besides having beautiful, mountains, lakes and waterfalls, Bali is famous for its people being very friendly.

- I prefer landscape photography. Sometimes culture photography as I remember Bali is known abroad for its culture.

- I have spent the last 3 years doing photography as a hobby but have never sold my work. We need a company that helps to sell our pictures and keep everything in accordance with applicable regulations.

- I was born in Jember, East Java. Following a period of working outside Indonesia I was attracted to the island of Bali. I have now been in Bali for over 14 years. My daughter was born here and I love calling Bali home.

- I am very new to photography, I started in 2014 when I was given a Nikon SLR D3200 and haven't looked back. Since this time I have been studying the art of photography through lots of reading and trial and error with my photo shoots.

- The atmosphere in Bali is possibly the thing I enjoy most. Also the diversity of the landscape.

- I love the long exposure photos of sunrise and sunset. You can really feel when you get the perfect shot. It makes up for getting up early or staying up late.

- My biggest challenge is to get my name well known as a photographer in Bali. Also trying to avoid getting bitten by crabs and small sea creatures is challenging!!
