Nye’ Lyn Tho Photography
Email :




Hi my name is Nye’. I’m an Oakland-based portrait, commercial and conceptual photographer / re-toucher. Prior to photography, I gained extensive experience retouching and compositing as a full-time Graphic Designer in a San Francisco based company for 7 years. My work is intimate as I like to get to know my subject and connect to them or it personally. Marrying the technical aspects of digital photography with the intimate intricacies of discovering ones true persona or constructing the visual brand of a product is the key balance that drives my work.

Ask About the Law of Attraction package !

In addition to realistic and stylized imagery, I also manipulate photos to be a bit more surreal in order to heighten or exaggerate the not so apparent story. I love bringing out my subjects dreams and goals in life. I have been practicing the use of Law of Attraction by way of strong visualization. I’ve noticed most folks have a hard time picturing themselves in their dream life…with the dream car, dream job, dream bae, or even their dream persona. I help them by capturing them having achieved these instances. By manipulating it into visual reality, printing and hanging it onto their wall for them to meditate on daily. There’s no reason why any of us should feel un-worthy of anything on this earth.

My studio is located in West Oakland, CA in a wonderful warehouse full of artist and makers. I’m always looking for new stories to tell and new ways to tell them.
