Travel & Landscape Photographer from Myanmar

Here is some of my Biography.

> My father bought point-and-shot small film camera for me at my middle-school-student life about 2005. And I shot some photos since this time.
At 2011 , I started to try for my professional photographer life in Myanmar. I won some prizes in local and international photo competitions.( Such as -Third prize winner of CGAP 2016 photo contest, First prize winner of 2018 Youth eyes on Silk Road Photo Contest organized by UNESCO and etc.. )
As for me, photography is the one of the media for the art to communicate between people. I think my camera is my paint-brush to paint the things that my seeings with eyes and my feelings with mind.
> I love photography , So I like most of photographic subjects by act as pictorial . Especially ,My most interesting is travel photography . I like to travel and to shoot the scenery , people and their tradition ,their folk culture in my traveling .
> I think that the photographers’ eyes need to see many and many photos. By seeing many other good photos, they will have good eyes for photography. So see good photos many(many) times and take photos many(many) times. And other side , they must learn about photographic theory and camera technology . By combining with good eyes and technical skill , will be good photographers.
