About Me

An internationally published and award winning photographer from Myanmar. I’ve been into photography since 2014. I’ve always tried to be creative and shown interesting, beautiful and wonderful things in my photos. Since 2014, I fell in love with photography and started traveling and shooting as much as I can. I’m a seafarer working as a Captain of the ship and I tried my best in the photography during my vacation time. In other words, I’m trying to become a full-time professional photographer. As a self-taught I achieve all my photography knowledge and inspiration through social media and online photography communities. In 2014, I had won first international photography award which became a very good motivation to move further in photography field.

Basically, Lighting, Composition and Color makes a photograph stands out. Apart from them, capturing moments and storytelling makes a photograph more meaningful and powerful. My favorite styles of photography are culture, portraits and landscape which tell stories of the people and sense of the place.

I’ve run photography workshops in Myanmar. I have showcased my works at many exhibitions and been published all around the world. I’ve won numerous international and local photography awards. I’m two times Best Photographer of the Year in Myanmar Photographic Society. In 2016, my photo was published in National Geographic printed Magazine which was published in July. I’m a contributor in National Geographic Your Shot Community. I was a Grand Prize winner of American Photography Open 2018.

My images will take you places you’ve never been, feel the scenery you’ve never seen and meet the people you’ve never known.
