I guess this is the part where I say the following cliches such as 'I have a special eye and I love to capture beautiful moments...or I'm unique and have a creative style or I'm an award winning photographer and everyone loves me.' I'm a guy...I can't say these things...my friends would make fun of me! In all seriousness nothing I could say could (or should) convince you to hire me. (But if something does, please let me know.) I can tell you in all honestly that I really enjoy photography.
I enjoy it so much that I got BA in Visual Communications from the University of South Florida with a concentration in photojournalism and a minor in studio art. Then I freelanced as a photojournalist for newspapers in the Tampa Bay area. I then studied commercial photography at the Pinellas Technical Education Center in St. Petersburg, Florida, under the direction of award-winning Master Photographer Terry Allison. I enjoy photography so much that I'm always studying and practicing the latest trends.
You probably don't care that I went through so much photography schooling, but you should. If you had to hire a doctor, plumber, or possum catcher, chances are you would want them to be fully educated in their field. Here's a shocker: anyone with a camera can claim that they're a professional photographer. That's why there's a zillion photographers out there who all have "that special eye to capture your beautiful moments!" I let my work speak for itself, I enjoy what I do, and I put a lot of effort into my work. That's all I have to say. Thanks!

Paul and Chi Photography were amazing! :-D He made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day. He took time to get the best shots and never made us feel rushed. We just got the pictures back (after only two weeks!) yesterday and we love them. Paul emailed us a link to view the pics in an online album as well as the actual pictures files themselves. It's been so easy to forward the pictures to friends and family who weren't able to attend out wedding. I can't say enough wonderful things about Chi Photography... we would chose this company a thousand times over :) Thank you, Paul!

Great job for Chi photography
Chi photography by Paul Nguyen had made my special day become truly precious by amazing pictures. He captured our memories in the most lively and beautiful way. I would recommend him to my friends who want to have weddings in Florida.

Authentic, moment capturing pictures
Great to work with Paul. Super easy going and flexible prior the wedding and on the day off. Good mix of staged couple images and in-the-moment images. Super fast turnaround time for the images. We love them.
Paul at Chi Photography & Video does an amazing job. His eye and attention to detail is eveident in the truly wonderful images he manages to capture. His approach is top notch, he gets it all done without any fuss and is super pleasant to everyone concerned. You have to see the finished product, and, once you do, you will choose Chi Photography & Video. I have worked with Paul on a number of occasions and I am impressed.
There are not enough words to describe how awesome a photographer Paul and his associates are! I've been working with Chi Photography for 5+ years and he is the consumate professional and his work is outstanding! Every client that I have referred to them has been very pleased with his work. Paul brings artistry to every photo he does. I look forward to working with Chi Photography for years to come.
