Deddy life journey is quite strange. Although since he was young he was interested in the world of art and culture, Deddy did not work in the field of cinematography from the beginning. At first he was a teacher at the Klaten State Senior High School, teaching the Crafts. Not satisfied as a teacher, then he tried to move to Jakarta to change his fate. At first he became a creative person at PT Sanggar Prativi. He enhanced his acting skills by taking part in elementary cinematography courses organized by the Indonesian Film Foundation.
