Khanh Phan, 35, from HCM City showed her artistic touch and love for nature from a young age. In 2017, she was charmed by photography and began to capture artistic photos, pursuing her passion.
In the early years, she worked at a bank while taking advantage of her free time to take pictures. In September 2022, she quit her job and devoted all her time and energy to her passion when she turned 34.
Khanh Phan has won many renowned international awards in photography such as gold and silver prizes in the Tokyo International Foto Awards (TIFA) international photo contest in 2020; Sony International Photo Contest; Travel Photographer of the Year 2020, and others.
Recalling the early days of her career, Khanh Phan said she was mainly self-taught, and learned through the internet, and looked at photos of colleagues and famous photographers to hone her skills in photography and post-production.
She became more experienced through the process of trial and error, confidently pursuing her preferred career.
She has visited most of Vietnam's provinces and cities and a number of countries to satisfy her passion for composing and "hunting" for beautiful landscapes.
For her, every trip to create artwork is an opportunity.
Photography has many genres and each needs different elements to "birth" the most beautiful and impressive pictures, Khanh Phan said.
Currently, she is pursuing two main themes: culture and art-oriented tourism so that she can freely take photos as she wants.
She says she wants to honor hardworking women and to beautify the world, while at the same time spreading the beauty of Vietnamese culture to the world.
