Bangkok-based freelance photographer Pop provides the images for our feature on guys with creative hobbies (p 86)
What was your first camera?
An Olympus Trip 35. My father gave it to me when I was six years old and I’m still using it today.
What inspired you to pursue a career in photography?
I like art, but I can’t draw. I think photography gives me the opportunity to express myself with light and colour.
What do you like taking pictures of the most?
People and how they go about their lives. It’s real. I also love capturing rare moments. For instance, the other day I snapped a picture of a dog and a cat fighting. Both were leaping in the air and it was magical to catch that split second. The cat won by the way.
What kind of pictures do you find hardest to take?
Portraits. It’s always difficult to bring out the true essence of a person in a stylised or posed shot, especially if they aren’t used to being in front of the camera.
