Alumni professional sharing at John de Britto High School Yogyakarta

Budi_1

Earlier today, I was invited to share my professional experience in photojournalism to the senior students of John de Britto High School, from which I graduated more than a decade ago. The purpose of this professional orientation is to give the students an idea of what it is like in real life to work in a certain field that they may find interesting to pursue as a field of study or even future career.

I shared my session with my senior who is now a photojournalist for Kompas, one of the top national daily newspapers here in Indonesia, P. Raditya Mahendra Yasa (Wendra). I knew Wendra since I was a sophomore and he was still studying Communications at Universitas Atma Jaya Yogyakarta, almost fifteen years ago. During the session, I shared some basic and general principles and knowledge in working in photojournalism, while Wendra emphasised that though we both work in the same field, our work natures are different: him being a national daily newspaper staff photographer while I am a freelance photographer working for magazines, both national and foreign.

Thank you, Pak Widi Nugroho, my English teacher who contacted and invited me. I hope what I and Wendra shared are useful for the students.
