Bus ride in Nonghet, Laos

A place where my camera was happy to be alive....

Laos | Monday, 14 January 2013 | 5 photos


My happiest memories was when I did my first solo trip. To feed my wanderlust I only needed a few things but the most important was my camera. Every time I took a picture no matter how bad it was, I loved it. Marc Riboud once said, “taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second”. I now know what he meant.
I am not going to tell you that photography is my passion, this is too obvious. What I am going to tell you is that I believe I still have a lot to learn. I don’t believe that I have reached a level where I am happy with my photography. Where I can look at a photo and say this is my best work yet, but it’s on its way. I believe that the scholarship will provide me with that sense of direction. If given the opportunity there are three fundamental techniques I would like to learn: technical principles, experiment and critique.
While in Laos I undertook a volunteer program with ChildFund where I conducted a Global Survey. By the end of the survey it made me realise that the one thing these children wanted the most was education. My ultimate goal is to collaborate with photographers who have an interest in building schools in Laos.
My bags are packed!
