Victoria My Nguyen

Victoria and I have shot a shit load so I figured I should put it all in a blog post. We just recently got the cover of Amped Asia so consider this a celebratory entry.


We both live in DTLA now so we link up a lot and even though she is one of the most extra ass people I know, we vibe heavy I think it shows in the photos.

This is the first shoot we ever did together and I feel it set the mothafuckin tone.

Shooting with both of us is pretty effortless. We be squeezing in shoots as we pregame. // Makeup by Julian

I've been really into color distortion lately and this is an example of it. I put a gel over the flash and voila.
