Hi! I’m Trần Tuấn Việt — often simplified to Tran Tuan Viet in English-language text — and according to Vietnamese custom, my short name is Viet – like the first word in “Viet Nam”, the country that I born & based.

I’m a Vietnamese photographer who in love with photography from 2007. I use the camera to record my favorite everyday moments.

I have experienced almost every kind of photography, but love to be a visual storyteller. With a humanist approach, I offer in my pictures & stories a positive, beautiful & benevolent gaze of Vietnam.

Dedication to challenging the boundaries of creativity, my work being commissioned by large international clients including Google, Samsung, Hyundai, Canon.. and also has been published widely by renowned media outlets such as National Geographic Magazine, National Geographic Books, Smithsonian Magazine, The Guardian Travel, Hoerzu Magazine, Jetstar Magazine and many Vietnamese magazines & newspapers.
