My name is Supat Sutti, I have been working as coordinator in the mahout training course and webmaster of Thai Elephant Conservation Center over ten years..
I am originally from Nan Province ( East of the North of Thailand ) I came to Lampang Province to join the small college in English Major for 4 years, and then apply for a job at Thai Elephant Conservation Center as coordinator in Mahout Training Course..
I was origanally from Nan Province and then move to Lampang to study English Major at Lampang Rajabaht College for 4 years..
I got job interview at Thai Elephant Conservation Center for working as coordinator at the TECC headquarter and then a year later to work on the site of Thai Elephant Conservation Center in the Mahout Training Course since 2002 – 2009. Then I was assigned to work as webmaster of official website of TECC..
Working with Changthai.com
I created changthai.com in 2001 as the place I could practice and test the website skill and then I tried very hard to promote it to become popular and now it works as window to meet the elephants at home among the tourists..
With elephant at the first time I did not interest on them as I saw them just like other animals.. I met a lot of them in the trekking camp in Chiang Mai when I was a trainee in trekking company. After I left Chiang Mai to apply for a job at TECC, I found that they are my most favorite animal and now become my most beloved one..
To work here as coordinator I got great opportunity to shoot a lot of photos for the tourists with their cameras then I found I love photography as the only way to present my art through the lens and camera so I decided to purchase first camera and lens.. I am quite lucky to be here as I could shoot the pictures to post it on the website, it makes a lot of people follow it and many people become great fans as they have to check and view the website nearly every day.. This why it becomes the window to meet elephant at home and especially it makes a lot of my tourists keep coming back to join our mahout training course every year and many of them recommend their friends to come here..
This is only some of my impression toward the Elephant Conservation Center.. It ‘s hard to explain in English as it ‘s not me native language…
