I got accepted to participate in a volunteer trip to Thailand when I was 16. I thought it would be a good idea to learn photography so I could document my travels, knowing Thailand to be rich in colour and culture. As such my father gifted me a used Minolta film camera for Christmas (one that I still have to this day) and so it began... I shyly shot landscapes and objects around me, and learned to develop film in the darkroom at school. Little did anyone know I would still be taking photos today, turning it into a decent side-hustle, and being honoured as official media for various events.
