My Journey, My Vision
- "I once heard that three human ingredients will combine to produce success in any field of endeavor: enthusiasm, talent, and hard work, and that a person can be successful with only two of these attributes as long as one of the two is enthusiasm." - Bruce BarnbaumAs a photographer and an adventure trekker, my passion comes from capturing the beauty of nature in new unchartered areas. For me, the mountain is a sanctuary where I find peace and solitude away from my professional work. Through photography and trekking, it becomes my quest to find the deeper meaning in my relationship with nature. In this, I strive to improve my vision through learning and practicing the fundamentals of photography.
As a photographer, it is my goal to express my "vision". I want the product of my vision to be both visually compelling and meaningful. That was the reason why I started my journey to be a better photographer and in that journey I came to realize that the means is more important than the goal. This realization has not only defined me as a photographer however but as the person I am today.
In my photography project, "My Journey, My Vision", I would like to share my philosophy, belief, and lessons those I have learned on my ongoing journey.
