About Me – Pinneng


Pinneng-After finishing my Open Water Diving Course in 2003, I did my 1st dive in Alor called “Kal’s Dream”. And that was when I knew I had fallen in love with underwater beauty.

A couple of months later, I bought my first underwater camera and have since never left it behind when I go diving. Exploring the beautiful waters of Indonesia, from the East as in Nabire-Papua to the far Western point of Indonesia: Pulau Weh, the North as in Sangihe to the Southern point: Rote, I always try to record the underwater beauty of Indonesia in frames and photographs. But I realize that mere photos can never capture faithfully the true paradise we have in Indonesia.

Being both a National and International winner of multiple Underwater Photographic Competitions, and as an in-house underwater photographer for DiveMag Indonesia, I am always striving to bend the rules of underwater photography allowing everyone to view Indonesia’s uniqueness in new and inspiring ways.

My profession as an underwater photographer has brought me to many interesting places -especially in Indonesia.  There I have so many chances of experiencing the wonderful of Indonesia trough my lenses. Supported by a well known camera brand, later I started to put bigger part on land photography.

Landscape and human interest have always been my favorite shots.
