London-based Thai product designer Tri Sanguanbun is a gifted photographer. One look at his Instagram account reveals stunning landscape, wildlife and travel photography, and even dreamy weddings. (He famously shot the nuptials of Thai rockstar Toon Bodyslam in 2020.)
But his real claim to fame is football, namely his jaw-dropping drone shots of stadiums. From Bangkok to Brazil, the photographer has captured some of the most beautiful stadiums around the world. Many feature on Turfmapp, an app he co-founded that helps football fans find fields to play on around the world.
With the Premier League in its final weeks this month, this Chelsea fan tells Sawasdee how he has melded his two loves of soccer and photography, as well as shares tips on drone photography.
Which shot is your favorite shot and why?
The Chicago skyline is my favorite. It’s always fulfilling when you’re able to get good shots of iconic places from around the world. However, lighting is key and it can make or break your photos. On one particular evening, I was able to capture the skyline during blue hour, just after sunset, when the sky turned into a gradient of purple, pink and blue. The buildings were lit up by the warm glow of sunset from behind the drone. I just love that combo!
