“A former editorial department staff, now a passionate photographer capturing the beauty of Pearl of Andaman, has been raised with seas; falling in love with mountains, living with nature, rucksacks travel and spending life in hometown with beloved cameras are what she defines the word ‘happiness’. ”
Life is like a dot where a connection must be met. My life is all about plans and goals and I am responsible for connecting those dots of trial and error: I tried, but failed so many times- some are out of plans-; but, that path depended on what life gave us at the moment
I was in high school and go travelling with my friend. Also, bring my camera's mom for taking a picture. that day still in my heart it was one of the best beautiful sunsets in my life. I clicked shutter many photos like no one there. I feel very concentrated and clam with photographing. yeah and I in love with my result of shooting, also my friend too. At that time I know photographing is my happiness. So I keep practising by myself from that time and I’m so happy that I am still working photographing with happiness.
I chose to grab a chance of photographing scholarship at Rangsit University, and luckily I could make a success of that opportunity; however, my family asked for more practical studying curriculum. I was offered a choice of being rewarded with a camera if I continued studying in a more practical curriculum. Nonetheless, I understood my family’s point so I decided to blend what my passion said and a changed dream.
Being determined, I strongly believed that studying Arts(Career Education: Tourism and Hospitality), which is combined with two sciences: travelling&hospitality and publicizing were compromised to my status back then. In the end, I managed to get into the course and I was given a camera as my mom promised me; I took this chance to skill up my ability to photograph. At any rate, I have just found out that if my goal had always been magazine field, I would have jumped into publication or journalism, but every corner of my university’s life had been filled with joys and cheers.
I remembered how joyful I was when I was trained as a trekking tour guide- but I was a bit nervous when I needed to entertain tourists. At that time I was thinking about shifting my life’s path again because I started to feel that the tour guide was not my joy anymore.
After the trainee program
My friends were getting around with first jobs while I asked for extra trainee’s programs from a professor while waiting for the graduation ceremony. Fortunately, my advisor brought me one travelling magazine and recommended to me about this.
From trainee to reality
I would never think of a chance to work in writing, photographing a variety of food, landscape, portrait and event in the magazine before, but I experienced all of these tasks within two years at (Baanbaearputh) magazine and World travelling. Thanks to the two beloved magazines that gave me a wonderful experience in which I have been confident that this work was a work of my life.
Life going on and on
From times to times, I was thinking of going back to work in my hometown so I decided to move back. But before I moved, I challenged myself of living 7-month-aboard-alone by myself so that I could review my life and restarted my path again; meanwhile, I also took a video’s conference to seek for job opportunities. I was thankful for my best friend, Prince who recommended me to a job in Trisara’s resort Phuket. This opportunity in this position provided me with a chance of portrait photograph. There, it seemed to me that the period was brought me up with the whole new experience of photographing; I levelled up capturing moment of family, couples, wedding day by day and, luckily enough, I have found that capturing people’s moments gives me more happiness: customers’ smiles and love made my every day; this could engine my passion strongly.
Day of change
After I had been collecting experiences there around one year, I decided to leave the position and challenged myself in doing something bigger : my own business called W I I T I T A . W O R K S P A C E . Before landing my feet on the ground of changes, with tough times and tings continuously happened, I proved whether I could survive under new status of freelancer in order to comfort my beloved family. This tough decision supported by my beloved ones such as families, friends, seniors and lover ; I had been carefully sleeping on this path everyday before I settled it. I appreciated all those support from the bottom of my heart, sincerely.
Thanks to my family and my partner who always stay by my side. I think that when having a clear goal, change is undeniable, but this is not always a terrible one, and every change leads us to a new better start-point: this is what my heart keeps saying to me.
A year passed by, being determined portrait photographer has been both challenging and entertaining to me: I had fun every time I lovely people and it sounds like destiny to me to have this chance. Those customers come from every corners and it is even honored and impressed to me that they trust and let me capture memorable moments in their lives. I have nothing to give back to them, except my every little attempt in photographing their good moments in which works like a Time Machine taking them back to their happy and precious moments every time.
Seeing customers’ wide smiles resulting from happiness becomes a rich source of energy that still wakes me up today. I am so grateful for that energy sharing to me: smiles, laughs and trust.
For those who have just passed this small space, I wish to have a chance to help memorize your all inestimable moments soon.
