What you'll do

I want to send you home with professional non-cliche jaw-dropping shots to match the memories you made. Just think of me as your personal tour guide and paparazzi! Let me take you on a fully customisable tour and shoot.

We’ll meet on the east side of Russian Hill at Ina Coolbrith park. This steep patch of greenery contains stairways, benches, gardens, and magnificent vistas. Locals know this park offers some of the best views in the city.

I will then drive you to Palace of Fine Arts. It’s a reminder of San Francisco’s past, a symbol of the city’s creative spirit, and one of the most dramatic backdrops for your Instagram feed.

Next stop, the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. It’s an absolute must see for anyone visiting San Francisco. Once again, the focus will be on you, with the breathtaking Golden Gate Bridge view in the background. We will end your memorable experience here. At this point you can Uber back to your destination.

I am a husband and a father.
When I’m not behind the camera, I enjoy spending time with my family, a pick up of game of Ice Hockey, and mixing music - I used to be a DJ.

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and made it my home. It is a perfect playground for my passion for photography, and I enjoy showcasing its iconic beauty as well as its diversity through photography.

I especially enjoy the storytelling quality of portrait photography. My focus is on natural light and candid shots. Whether you’re comfortable in front of the camera or not, my aim is to create a relaxed environment, so I can capture you at your spontaneous best.
I believe in whimsy, lots of laughing, a bit of loving, and a whole lot of celebrating life‘s little moments.

When I first booked this photo shoot, I wasn't sure how it would turn out, especially since there was another person getting their photos taken too. But after meeting Viceth and Thanh (The other guest) we clicked really well in person and Viceth (host) made both of us feel really comfortable and gave us tips and pointers as to how to pose naturally. My favourite part is everything came naturally, Viceth would observe our movements or us talking to each other and tell us to preserve or replicate a pose. The photos are amazing, I got them two days later and love them! They are very non-touristy, and even if you don't use social media, they are nice photos to save for the future. I highly recommend locals and tourists to book this experience, these photos are worth the price.

I was a bit nervous before the shoot. Viceth made it extremely fun and easy shoot by being so friendly . He had taken us to some of the beautiful locations in the bay and he is flexible enough to listen to his clients suggestions as well. He’s one of the best among the finest photographers in the bay and looking forward to schedule more shoots with him in future.

Viceth was so great, he made us feel extremely comfortable as first timers and his art direction gave us beautiful shots. He was kind and friendly and very easy to work with the whole time. He even suggested romantic additions to our locations after getting to know our story. He really went above and beyond! Can’t recommend highly enough - definitely book your shoot with Viceth!

Great experience. Viceth made me feel very welcome, and guided me in a way that allowed us to incorporate my own style and expressions, and that made the photos unique, more like compositions than standard travel photos. Easily one of the highlights of this visit to SF.
