For almost 5 years, Komkrit dedicates his only day offs out looking for images of a life time. "It's not easy to do landscape photography in just 2 days a week, but I did what I can, my best. I dedicate time for a long road trip every year to expand my portfolio. I am grateful for what I have and What I am thus far, even if I always wish I've more time to make more images. There are many stories and reasons behind everything I have done, and it will be a long journey to get to where I dream of."
