Recent work: Multimedia piece for Oxfam Australia

Recently I shot a photo story for Oxfam Australia in Lombok, Indonesia. I also edited the images as a multimedia slideshow, including additional video footage and audio recordings.

It is always interesting to work with multimedia and to see how certain photos, that might not be powerful enough to be used individually, take a strong role once they get added to a sequence.

Professional photographer in Indonesia

I recently renewed my professional membership in the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) and the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA).

I am the only professional photographer who is a member of these organizations in Indonesia.

While these two organizations are based in the US and their services are mostly oriented to photographers working stateside, I think it is worth it to pay the membership dues to support their work towards protecting copyright and other collective interests.

I set high standards for my work and my service, so being a member of these organizations helps me to continually improve my skills. I also subscribe to both organizations’ codes of ethics (ASMP’s & NPPA’s).

There might be many people out there claiming to be photographers, but how professional are they? They might be unreliable or simply disregard basic ethical standards while working on a story.

You can remove uncertainty out of the equation when you work with a certified professional photographer and video producer. Let’s work together!

Indonesia is the world's third-largest democracy and home to around 240 million people. The elections on July 9, 2014 mark the third direct presidential elections since former dictator Suharto was overthrown in 1998. (Rodrigo Ordonez)
