I started shooting with one of the first Canon Rebel cameras over a decade ago. At the time, I shot primarily nature and landscapes. Although I never owned a film camera, the slow pace of this type of photography allowed me to understand the fundamentals of lighting, exposure, and framing.
After shooting wide for awhile, I went to the other extreme, obsessing over the details in macro and product photography. This naturally led to capturing food, and since I also like to cook, this combined 2 passions nicely. I was fortunate to be invited to shoot a few restaurants.
Like most photographers, you eventually get asked to shoot weddings. While I partnered with a wedding photography company for awhile, after a few summers, it grew tiresome.
A few years after I got married, my wife and I began travelling. I lugged my DSLR with me, and was rewarded by captivating images from our journeys. Travel and lifestyle photography was fast-paced, and made use of my skills from other forms of photography.
While I don't lug around an SLR anymore, my Fuji mirrorless cameras seem to do the trick for now. Ngan Photography is my collection of nature, food, lifestyle, travel and street photography.
