My name is Thuc.
I'm a Sydney-based photographer (with a Vietnamese background so hence the unique name!) with a lifelong affliction that the Germans call fernweh (a yearning for far-flung places) and an enthusiasm to live an active and exciting life.
I have an unashamedly romantic view on life:
I love smartphones but I miss the days where I had to use actual maps and ask people for directions - or even better, get delightfully lost in new, beautiful towns.
I wish I could sing or play the guitar because then I feel that I'd never be lonely.
I love real books, art galleries and elite sportspeople because, to me, all three represent devotion to a passion.
And there is little in this world that inspires me as much as seeing heart-filled human feats; seeing people do what they love and the unadulterated joy that radiates from them when they do so (I mean, have you ever watched a gold medal win at the Olympics??)
I am also greatly inspired (and often, moved to tears!) by big landscapes - and by this, I mean MOUNTAINS.
There are only a handful of instances in life where I have felt completely fulfilled and they all involve the mountains.
They uplift and humble me.
But of course, I happen to be born and bred on Earth's flattest continent! Go figure.
Through photography, I freeze beautiful and powerful moments to inspire you to dream big and live big, to chase your own versions of adventure and fulfilment.
I know that what sets your soul on fire will not be the same as for me - but I hope that my work, and seeing me chase my dreams, will motivate you to find what does.
Other things you may find interesting about me: I am She Went Wild's (a women's adventure community) Marketing + Events Coordinator, I can speak French and Vietnamese, my partner is a strength & conditioning coach specialising in CrossFit (and we own Starr Strength and Performance), I am obsessed with Switzerland (used to live there in 2011) and New Zealand, I worked in finance for 4 years, I have a hot cross bun addiction and...as you can now tell, I love stories.
And I will always have time to hear yours :)
