Pichaya Viwatrujirapong is an amateur photographer and a trekker. His dream is to capture the beauty of nature in an unchartered land. For him, mountain is a sanctuary where he finds peace and solitude away from his professional work. Through photography and trekking, it becomes his quest to find the deeper meaning between him and nature. In order to express the true beauty of nature, he strives to improve his vision through learning and practicing photography fundamentals.
His passion is in landscape, travel, and street photography. His work has been published in Lonely Planet, BBC Travel, Popular Photography, and other magazines. He was also the winner of "Stream Photo Asia Photomarathon 2012". As a featured artist, Pichaya raised fund for the flood victims from selling his photos as a part of Bangkok Charity Orchestra concert in October 2011 during one of the worst flood in Thailand's history.
From his adventurous experiences, he summited Gokyo Ri (17,577 ft) and Cho La Pass (17,620) in Sagarmatha National Park, Nepal. Moreover, he has seen 7 out of 10 highest mountains in the world. In 2013, he plans to trek across demanding Baltoro Glacier to Concordia and K2 Basecamp in Pakistan.
