About Andy Nguyen,

 

Andy Nguyen is a professional wildlife photographer, specializing in bringing a fresh new perspective into the fascinating world of birds.

Andy’s ability with the camera, when combined with his talent for harnessing light and predicting a crucial moment before it actually happens, can create more than a few masterpieces, some of which have been featured in world-renowned magazines, exhibited at the national Museums in England and America, and have received many awards in international photo contests. However, Andy is particularly proud of being the first-ever Vietnamese-born photographer to have been honored in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards.

“My goal is to show their life stories, their beauty, grace, spirit, and natural behavior, through a mix of technical merits and artistic expression, with the hope of educating the general public about nature conservation for generations to come. Along with the power of flight, their sense of peace and freedom are qualities that I believe each and every one of us can learn to appreciate.”

When not in the field among the birds and wildlife, he can usually be found at an airport realizing a life-long passion: watching aircraft fly and photographing them.
