Huy Nguyen is the WPJA Photographer of 2005 & American Photo’s “top 10 wedding photographers” in 2009 but he is one of the most down to earth persons I know. Unassuming, kind and insightful is how I would describe him. We had a very good chat and a nice Vietnamese dinner. Thank you, Huy, for the invitation to the Foundation Workshop Forum.
Cliff is just as friendly when we caught up with him in New Jersey. “Relax Louis, you are sweating!” Although I was the one asking all the questions, I was nervous talking to great photographers like Cliff & Huy. “Some people think that we [renown photographers] are some superstars. Don’t believe in that crap!” said Cliff. He insisted that he was just like everyone else. He worked hard to pay his bank on time & cracked his head for the next amazing shot.
It is refreshing to see how grounded these guys are. They are ordinary guys doing extraordinary stuff.
Here are some pictures we had with Huy. I am sorry but we were so pressed for time, I didn’t even managed to a single shot with Cliff.
Guess what is Huy’s favourite drink?
He loved it so much that he gave me a couple bottles more.
