“I want to create a visual where people can feel the moment”, voiced Dimas Prawira on the photographs he captures. His passion in photography started from when he was still in high school, when he first learned to take photos with his neighbour. He, then, deepened his knowledge and skills in photography when he attended University majoring in Multimedia and started his debut as a freelance wedding photographer in 2006.
In 2008, he worked as a photographer for Deteksi in Jawa Pos, one of the leading newspapers in East Java, and photographed some Indonesian public figures. Becoming a guest speaker in many photography workshops held by universities in Surabaya between the year of 2009 – 2018 were among his achievements in his career. The list does not stop there. Dimas has also become the photographer for the bulletin of National Hospital, Surabaya. He started from the 1st edition until the most current one, the 11th edition, and this is an on-going project.
His journey with Namasa began when he met Chesoen Tan at a wedding exhibition. After some chit chats and discussions, they both found each other’s visions are aligned. From there, Chesoen Tan tagged him along to become part of Namasa, and he took it. However, in 2019, Dimas felt the need to take a break from being a wedding photographer and to pursue his career in other photography fields instead, one of them was becoming a fashion photographer.
Now that the New Chapter Begins in Namasa in 2021, Dimas Prawira is ready for his comeback to be part of the team, joining Chesoen Tan and Bagus Subono. This seemingly reserved photographer, whose photo trademarks are minimalist and simple, has also been passionate about drawing since he was a child. It was apparently his first medium to express his feelings and ideas. Dimas always engages during photo sessions with his clients and he often gets carried away with the emotions of the moments he photographs.
