Not long ago, a friend invited Van Anh to model for a photography club. She enjoyed her time and met many talented photographers. They appreciated her and invited her back several times. Van Anh has a professional modeling background; and while spending time at the club she found that she had talent setting up scenes and creating moods for photoshoots. Additionally, teaching other models how to pose and helping women to look beautiful was something she enjoyed doing. Thus, she wanted to try her hands behind the camera.
Danny at the time was not interested in photography. But just to see what the ruckus was about, he took a few artistic photographs of Van Anh, using only an old point and shoot camera. It was done for fun, but surprisingly the photos received many compliments from experienced photographers. Suddenly, the husband and wife team discovered a talent they never knew they had.
Their first DSLR was a Nikon D5100, and they continued to use Nikon cameras with various lenses. Their style is to take beautiful pictures of women in natural settings. Van Anh often works with the models weeks in advance, planning and discussing theme, clothing, accessories… while Danny scouts for locations that best fits the theme. During the photoshoot, Van Anh works closely with the models. As a photographer and artistic director, she takes a more direct approach, while Danny usually stands at a distant and takes longer shots from different angles.
Together they are a husband and wife team. They prefer taking photos of people rather than landscape, because with people every second and angle presents a different look and mood. Their motto is “We don’t just take pictures, we capture souls”; and the challenge of capturing the right moment is the excitement that they find in photography.
They are always on the lookout for new faces. If you’re interested in modeling for them, please feel free to contact them.
