LS Trung was born in Hanoi, Vietnam in 1980. He is a lawyer and Business law speaker at Universities, while mainly being professional in banking industry.
Since he was a child, he used to paint his life by pens thanks to his generated love of writing. Now, career character makes his live become on the go, but this passion is still alive. He, then, found out another way of memorizing his colorful life around in every single busy journey, not by Pen anymore, but by Camera.
Interestingly, it can be either of Black & white, or Color frame, which helps him to express his emotion and to deliver his messages to viewers thru the pictures.
This inspiration brings him about a deep interest of street photography and travel photography.

After two years specialized in street and travel photography, Fujifilm X-Pro1 and its lens kit XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 LM OIS brought me about not just inspiration but also my toward movement in this field. Until now, all of my faithful companions on journeys are just Fujifilm X-T1 and X-Pro1 with Fujinon lens series for all my needs.
Fujifilm X-PRO1 (and then, X-T1) with its lens series is a special camera. Sharp and clear image processing quality is hidden inside a nostalgic, elegant and luxurious shape. And more importantly, for me, it is small and amazingly light weight.
For both of photographers and photography lovers, Fujifilm makes you stand out from the crowd right at the first sight. When going on the street or hunting for ongoing life frames, the slender Fujifilm X helps me get very close to the scenes but does not affect their nature. In another word, Fuji X helps me become an "invisible photographer".
It is very difficult to find out any other camera better for wandering everywhere and take street or travel photography than my Fuji X.
