- Business Advocacy
Ms. Luong started as a traditional photographer, but over time she felt that documentary photography was something she enjoyed doing because she saw how genuine the photos can be.
Tiffany Luong, a documentary family and business photographer, follows her passion in documenting life histories and telling living stories through photographs. This Alhambra resident started her own business, Tiffany Luong Photography, in 2015 when she became interested in learning about her own family history. While training at the Chinese-American Museum in Los Angeles, she realized that her grandparents had an extensive immigration story, and she wanted to learn more about their history to be able to pass it down to her own children.
She did not let her photography dream pass by and started to train and learned about photography. She took online classes, attended in-person workshops, trained with a master photographer, and mostly learned from her own experiences.
“I wanted to do this job because I want others to have their own family documentary and have something more valuable like a time capsule,” she said. “We can take time for granted, and we need to cherish it more. I want to capture people to tell the stories of their daily lives.”
Ms. Luong started as a traditional photographer, but over time she felt that documentary photography was something she enjoyed doing because she saw how genuine the photos can be. She did not understand the craft in the beginning until she learned to understand photojournalism and what it meant.
“Documentary photographers only have control as observers and what they see to make the best story with the camera,” she said.
She engages with her clients in order to have a comfortable and trustworthy relationship, which can be helpful in getting a natural photo. Ms. Luong also works on business documentary photography. Business document photography can tell the story behind the company and helps customers understand business value of products and services that they provide.
“I want to help and support businesses, especially small family businesses, to help them with marketing collateral,” said Ms. Luong.
As a business owner, she understands the challenges of trying to have her clients understand her labors and efforts. There can be more to just selling a product or service; it is the story that brings the meaning to it. She enjoys this work for businesses because they appreciate how her photos help share their own stories.
Tiffany Luong Photography delivers a personal and meaningful product to clients; she presents a memorable portrait story that can be cherished for a lifetime. Her sessions are about one to two hours. She takes about 400 to 800 photos and delivers about 60 of the very best photos.
