Maryanne Nguyen


About myself:

My name is Maryanne and I’m currently a 4th year medical student, and carer for my grandmother and mother. I like exploring nature, serving others, cooking (making birthday cakes too!), and watching shows.

When did you start photography?

I’ve always enjoyed taking photos, even though all I had was a simple secondhand point-and-shoot camera. It was only when someone at church offered his DSLR at mates rates that I made the upgrade and started learning.

What do you love about photography?

I love its ability to document mundane and significant moments in our lives, which all help enrich and shape us, in a creative way and allow memories to be relived again later.

Why did you join Us Photography?

Us Photography’s aim appealed to me as I believe in giving back to the broader community and helping others in need, having been fortunate enough to receive support in the past – and what better way to do that than through doing what I enjoy 🙂

What photography do you enjoy?

I mostly take photos of every day happenings and birthdays. Though I admire all types of photography, wedding and travel photography are my favourites.

Interesting fact about yourself:

I have never been on a plane.
