Ly Hoang Long - Dalat City - Vietnam

 

Ly Hoang Long EFIAP - Freelance photographer. Born in 1965.
Since my childhood, I was fascinated by colors and images, then I began my first career as a graphic designer.
Life passed smoothly until 1993, when I saw my friend´s photos, which made me realised that I could paint with light by a camera, so I bought my first SLR (Pentax SP II) and started shooting.
In 1995 I build up my darkroom and stuck there for eight years, I didn´t even know that I almost quitted my design work, that´s my transformation from a photo hobbyist to a freelance photographer.
 
I think, the technique and concept of photography may be changed, but the only thing will exist unchangeably is its optimistic vision;
life always looks better through the view finder, so, just press the release button and let the images tell the stories.
