Hi Ogik, tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hey everyone! My name is Ogik and I’m Indonesian Photographer based in Steyr, Austria. I was born and raised in a village on the island of Java, Indonesia. In 2016 I moved to Austria for work reasos and started developing my photography skills. I started photography by taking photos from the environment around me like forests, hills, lakes, mountain and then uploading them to Instagram. Fast forward to today, I am an outdoor and landscape photographer with around 300K followers on Instagram.
What attracts you to traveling and photography an the outdoors?
I am quite active on instagram and seeing people posting pictures of beautiful places I realize what a beautiful planet we live on. So from that I started traveling and capturing moments with my camera then sharing them on Instagram as well. There are lots of people out there who don't have the opportunity to travel. My Goal is to take them with me. And lastly, I always discover new things and get to know myself better when I travel.
What's your best travel memory?
Iceland! After dreaming of visiting Iceland for a long time, in 2022 I finally had the chance to visit Iceland. The 10 days roadtrip is my best travel memory. When I was there I also had the opportunity to witness a rare moment where a volcano erupted. Such a beautiful sight!
Inspire us. What are your favorite destinations?
I keep getting this question and the answer is always the same. Indonesia! Indonesia for me will always be my favorite destination because by visiting Indonesia I can see my family and friends. Also, the fact that Indonesia is a big country and has many islands, therefore there will always be new places to visit and new experiences to get cool pictures.
Why do you think you match with Cortazu so well?
As an outdoor photographer who often spends time outside with all kinds of weather conditions, they provide a solution for that. It looks like they really know how to design a jacket suitable for a photographer. But apart from a good product. I really feel matched with their mission: 'Get out there. For the better.'
What are your favorite Cortazu items?
Insulated Hard Shell Jacket is one of my favourite items. They offer a choice of colors which I love. I love the orange color it works really well in my photography. And the jacket material is very good to keep me warm in the cold winter. This jacket has also a lot of features as well!
