Being able to explore, witness extraordinary weather conditions, and shoot during golden hour are all privileges that Intarob appreciates. However, he notes that it takes time to develop a photographic instinct and to identify special moments in seemingly mundane activities. Indeed, Intarob’s intention is always for audiences to feel something. “I hope they get emotional” he says, when asked what he hopes viewers will see in his photos. “I am always looking to discover new places and use my experience”.
Intarob advises aspiring photographers to follow the work of other creators but suggests that they occasionally disconnect from social networking platforms, especially when using them to measure artistic merit. “We all use [social networking] more than enough”, he states. “I try to find time to separate from it”. By focusing on his own craft, he is able to practice, refine and review while avoiding comparison with others.
Ultimately, it is an adherence to simplicity and enjoying the process that guides Intarob’s approach: preparing well, travelling often and seeking magic in the ordinary.
