Nye’ Lyn Tho Photography
1960 Mandela Parkway
Oakland, CA 94607




I am a portrait, commercial, conceptual, and editorial photographer based in Oakland California. My work is intimate as I like to get to know my subject and connect to them personally. Marrying the technical aspects of digital photography with the intimate intricacies of discovering ones true persona is the key balance that drives my vision. Balance is an important part of my work.

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.
