|Stephan Funke, FRPS, EFIAP.
|I was born in 1929 in Meerane, Saxony, in
the middle of Germany and emigrated to Finland in 1951 to live and work there for 44 years. My adult children Tapani, Rauni and Sami are living in Finland while I moved to live in Thailand after my retirement in 1995. I settled down in the outskirts of Bangkok, in the Nonthaburi province.
|After textile= and garment related studies
in Germany I worked in the Finnish garment industry and = trade until my retirement.
My hobby is photography. A serious appoach to this came after retirement.
Being a member of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain I gained their
distinctions : LRPS in 1998, ARPS in 1999
and finally a Fellowship in the theatrical section, FRPS in 2001.
Additionally I am a Star exhibitor of the Photographic Society of America and activ in local, bangkogian photographic societies.
My main interest is in people photography and as a theatre - lover, it is Stage Photography.
