Tiffany Nguyen – @tiffpenguin
Alpha Collective member Tiffany Nguyen is a Los Angeles-based adventure travel photographer. Nguyen’s passion for discovering new places and immersing herself in unfamiliar cultures is what fuels her travel, adventure, landscape and lifestyle photography. She recently posted these incredible shots from Thailand below and says, “Inspiration comes in many shapes and sizes so I love visiting places that offer landscapes with natural beauty as well as unique architecture that clearly has a vision behind it. There’s not many places that I can visit over and over again and still discover more each time I go back. I’ve been to Thailand three times now and every time it surprises me with new things to see. I think it’s safe to say that I’ll be back again soon to look for more perspectives!” Follow her to keep up with her travels and see more of her travel photography here.
