Paul Nguyen's Profile

About

Hello, and thanks for looking at my work. :) These photographs are my pride and joy, my passion, and I am proud to be able to turn my love into my profession. I am Paul Nguyen, an established photographer from the northeastern USA, specializing in landscapes and wildlife. I have been operating a business selling my photographs as an artist at events around New England, and I hopefully through Etsy I can reach out to art lovers all across the globe.

The images that I offer come from around the world including New Zealand, India, Hawaii, California, the Midwestern U.S., and my home area, the Northeastern U.S. I travel frequently in order to create the most diverse and interesting photographs that I possibly can, and I'm always looking for new destinations. If you have ideas in mind for places that I must photograph, I'm all ears! :)…

My photography is mostly performed at dawn, dusk, or at night, because I believe that, ironically, the best photographs are made in virtually no light at all. Thus, for my landscapes, I'm often using long exposure times, from several seconds to even several hours. I photograph wildlife and insects in low light or at night by relying on off-camera flash. And I'm a fan of "experimental" techniques like light-painting in my night landscape photography to combine artificial and natural light in the same image. Bright, sunny days? Great for a hike, but you won't see me even take the lens cap off my camera.

Photography is the art of perception: People have the power to affect their own perceptions, whether it be their perception of themselves or that of the world around them. Since everything that we experience in our lives must pass through the filter of our perception, changing our perception essentially changes our reality. A simple flip of a switch in the mind can make purples more vivid, life more gratifying, and challenges less daunting than ever before. And the only thing that it really takes for that to happen is your choice; a simple choice to alter the way you see the world that in fact changes the world around you in a tangible way.
Photography is an alternate way of perceiving the world that I’ve embraced since I was 12 years old. Comparing the world as seen through a lens with how it is seen through the eyes or through our memories has allowed me to realize that nothing is definite, nothing is final, and nothing is seen the same way twice. By sharing with others these images and moments captured through a lens, I hope to provide people with the inspiration to believe that their own lives are not static and set in stone, but instead are dynamic stories with infinite possibilities at every moment.

Photographs are the dreams we have about the things we’ve seen.
