When Weerapong Chaipuck decided to pull the plug on his medical career, he was faced with the pivotal question that meets all retirees: What the hell am I going to do? Lucky for him (and us), he found the answer in photography, a pursuit that is intricately linked to his love of travel. Journeying to exotic locations both near his Bangkok home and afar — Chaipuck produces incredible landscape images that are so richly textured and colored as to border on the surreal.
Today Chaipuck offers a la carte photographic tours of Thailand, encouraging others to experience the natural beauty of Southeast Asia. “As a new task of travel photographer, I experienced a lot of memorable moments from kind-hearted people during my trip,” he says. “So, [to] pay it forward, if you want to make a trip as a travel photographer too, welcome to my country. Contact me and be my guest!” Visit Facebook to learn more.
