Interview with Kanrapee Chokpaiboon
My name is Kanrapee Chokpaiboon, born and raised in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I started
shooting photos since I was 15 from a compact camera my teacher gave me and fell in love with it. I moved to New York in 2015 to expand my skill set and knowledge on photography
Wherever on earth, It doesn’t matter, I always have my camera with me because we never know what’s going to happen and I don’t want to miss any moment.
Whether it’s raining, snowing, daytime or nighttime especially when the weather sucks something magical might happen.
I focus on things that surprise me and things that will contribute to my ongoing projects. Also, things that inspire me like movies, photo books or even interesting conversations. I always keep myself open to new experiences because the more you allow yourself to experience new things, the more inspirations flow in. I go through lots of photos from different photographers from different genres. I always make time for shooting because then I can see where my direction is heading and how I can improve it.
Photography started as my favorite hobby when I was a kid. Then it became the thing I love. Now you can say that it’s a part of my life.
