Kanrapee Chokpaiboon was born in 1990 in Chiang Mai, Thailand. He started his career as a photographer during his college years but all of that started when he was in grade 9. His science teacher saw him with his father’s compact camera shooting pictures with his friends so he asked Kanrapee to entered a photography contest at his school. He won 1st prize and thought to himself that was fun and exciting! He fell in love with photography from then on and it has been with him until today. Photography also brought him to New York where he gets a chance to explore and develop his own style and learn from the best of the best photographers. His techniques usually includes flash photography and he style derives from his love for sci-fi movies and his beliefs in extraterrestrial being and many mysteries of the universe that make his style very unique.
