Phuong has been a passionate photographer for 8 years. Starting out as a green hobby photographer, learning about the function of his camera he soon realised how much he loved photography. After getting some confidence in the art he started soliciting some paid work to test out his skills. From then on it his passion became a career.
To be honest I love the gear. I love the combination of all the different gear that I own which allows me to create something meaningful for my clients. The stories that I tell through just one click can have a lasting impression on my clients. I remember doing a proposal shoot. The soon to be bride absolutely enthralled with my work and described it as “magical”.
That moment there, I thought to myself it’s amazing that I can do something that people can appreciate directly. It’s definitely not corporate work where you’re just a cog in a giant wheel. I think you don’t get the same sort of immediate appreciation for your work.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I am introverted by nature but I strive to connect to people by having a good conversation with them. That’s why I love doing event photography. When I communicate well with the subjects the reaction is what I am looking for. Their laughter, their smiles and their interaction with their loved ones. Each of those candid moments are special because you can never replicate the same shot again.
