Last name, Nguyen. First name, Minh.
Having been born in Vietnam and then immigrating to the US (Oakland California) at a young age, I grew up having intertwined both of my heritage and upbringing into the person I am today. Raised by my mom who worked as an editor of a lifestyle & cultural magazine for 8 years, I got the opportunity to be exposed to the aspects of the creative industry. That was definitely a blessing in disguise for me early on, and I could not be anymore grateful.
In 2013, I made the move towards relocating to San Francisco so I can pursue my passion: photography. Through this decision, I was able to work with several fashion startups such as TheRealReal and PopBasic, which then enabled me to explore various facets of my creativity and further develop my skill set. These experiences amplified my dedication towards my goal as a creator and thus pulling me into this fast-paced industry.
Presently, I am living and working in the city that never sleeps called New York City as a freelance photographer and a full-time creative director at Apex Creative NYC. My main responsibilities falls within getting to shoot, creative direct, and produce story driven fashion and lifestyle images of people and brands, aka the things I love to do!
