Suwandi Chandra

A self-taught photographer, the eponymous founder of Suwandi Chandra started his interest in photography when he was in high school. While in pursuit of his undergraduate degree at Iowa State University, Suwandi’s love of nature and architectural objects allowed him to make the most of his photography practice.
Suwandi got his first Digital SLR Camera, Pentax K10D, in the early 2007. His shots of beautiful panorama of Des Moines, Iowa got him a strong grip to set out on the photography journey. In summer 2007, he travelled alone to Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macao wherein he had the opportunity to capture the beauty of places he visited with his camera.
Suwandi continued to hit the road on the photography pathway while living in the US, and he captured more breathtaking shots from various places in cities in California, Washington, Minnesota, Alaska, and more.
Upon receiving his bachelor’s degree in computer engineering from Iowa State University in 2006, Suwandi decided to work in Des Moines, Iowa as software developer.
After his five-year stint, he decided to come back to his motherland, precisely in Medan, North Sumatra, Indonesia. Aside from running his own photography business, Suwandi holds the post of senior software developer and consultant at his family business SCSTechindo.
Despite his busy daily routine, Suwandi always has the space to spare when it comes to photography. His works of photography has eventually led him to achieve awards and recognitions. He also customizes the curriculum of Suwandi Chandra Photography, which is greatly inspired by the curriculum of School of Photography in New York, the school where he also attended during his US stay.
Fast forward, as a professional photographer, he has hit the road of photography further. As the helm of Suwandi Chandra Photography, he never thinks of reaching a destination. The sky is the limit. He will continue to improve and strive to beat the best.
