About Yan Kurniawan
It all began in Indonesia, a beautiful country where I was born. When I worked in Jakarta, a very busy and crowded city, I started developing my passion for landscape photography. It's my getaway from the busy city life, to go somewhere remote, enjoy beautiful sceneries and capture them on my camera.
I moved to Australia in 2014, having to sell all my photography gear to cover the living cost before I get a job. It's not long after I got my first job in Australia that I started to buy new photography gear and continue pursuing my passion of landscape photography.
I'm a self-taught photographer. I'm always passionate about my craft and always looking for the best way to present my photographic art.
