Opened by Wawan Dhewanto, PhD, Bachelor of Entrepreneurship program director, the third Fridaypreneurship invited Hendrikus Ardianto, owner of Papyrus Photo as a speaker. Founded in 2003, he shared his experience of establishing and running Papyrus Photo.

Realizing his passion in photography since high school, during university years Hendrikus started to offer wedding photography to friends and relatives. Soon after graduating from Civil Engineering major, he decided to pursue photography seriously and opened Papyrus Photo. Early years of Papyrus Photo were Hendrikus’ golden time because many of his friends got married.His thought of living with less workload and stress eventually led him to hire more employees, but it did not turn out as he hoped for. Trying to recover from further loss, Hendrikus started to evaluate and cut off employees for efficiency. Since then, business has gone better and in 2005, Papyrus Photo expanded to offer more photography services and move into a bigger office in Jl. Bengawan. Today, Papyrus Photo has three branches in Bandung and one in Surabaya.

At the end of his talk, Hendrikus advised the audience to explore the opportunity and get deeply involved one at a time. Once it works well, then go ahead to explore others. This applies to his business as well, after 8 years delving into photography business; he decided to take the plunge in culinary world.

The talk show titled Photopreneur: Business and Management of Photography is continued with an inspiring Q&A session where students asked various questions such as how to survive a business from difficult times, photography tools, and advantages compared to competitors. Hendrikus said that at Papyrus Photo, every consumer is treated differently to cater each individual needs to reach consumer satisfaction. Technology-wise, he advised the audience, do not be a gadget minded, be a result minded. As long as consumers are satisfied with the result, then there is no need to upgrade unless there is a technology gap that produces a much better result.

Fridaypreneurship is ended with awarding certificate and souvenir handed by Wawan Dhewanto, PhD as Bachelor of Entrepreneurship program director and a group photo.***
