Tiffany Ong is an experienced professional photographer who specializes in event, portrait, and landscape photography. She is a student at Stanford University and is frequently contracted by the university to take photographs at events, performances, and conferences. Her photographs are used in ad campaigns that are printed and sent to alumni around the world. On her assignments, she has photographed the likes of Hillary Clinton, Jesse McCartney, and Katie Ledecky.
Tiffany also loves conservation photography. Recently, she was sent to Hawaii to document its beautiful landscape and to highlight sustainable Hawaiian agricultural practices. Her photographs were published in the local magazine. Her next project is in China. She is building smart camera traps that are able to detect poachers, in an attempt to stop animal poaching.
Photography is a universal language - images can express things that words cannot. Images last forever and are a beautiful testament to a particular time, experience, and emotion. I love being able to capture a single moment in time and share it with others.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many photoshoots. I recently took photographs for my friend. She had an upcoming dance performance, and she and her dance partner wanted portraits of themselves holding certain dance poses. What made the shoot special was the fact that we were both open to trying different dance poses and getting different angles. We shot around a column, in front of a wall, next to a fountain, you name it. It ended up being a really fun experience and I got really unique and beautiful photographs.
