Michael Ngim – Photographer

Michael moved to LA 3 years ago from the east coast with no expectations of what this city had to offer.  He stumbled into photography by taking photos of anything and anyone he could from an earlier age, but truly started crafting his art more recently due to the people he was meeting.  Be it street performance or food photography he really enjoys capturing that image that jumps out to the viewer and leaves them attached to it.
