Thailand

For me, with great camera comes great creativity. I think the α7 Series has lots of functions that support my creativity.

Tavepong Pratoomwong is an award-winning street photographer based in Bangkok, Thailand. He exhibits his works in Asia, North America, and Europe. Tavepong Pratoomwong got into photography while at university. After graduation, along with his friend, they followed the dream they had had when they were in high school. That dream was to create a photo documentary and publish it in Thailand’s National Geographic magazine. When he established his own company, he had to spend most of his time on the new-born business. He took photos less and less as time went by but he was still interested in camera equipment. He almost stopped and never thought he would return to taking photos again. That was, until the end of 2013, when his wife surprised him with a wedding anniversary gift. It was a ticket to Varanasi, India. That ticket, that trip, was the turning point for him to start taking pictures again. When he went back to Thailand, he joined the Street Photo Thailand’s “365 days in 2014” activities. It has allowed him to go out and take photos every day since then. The result of this hard work is that he has won many international street photography awards.
