I grew up in Summit, New Jersey in the US, and my schooling were also all from New Jersey, which included high school, college, and post graduate studies (both Bachelor and Master of Engineering degrees in Electrical Engineering).
Despite being exposed to photography very early (my father owned and was very adept with a Canon SLR), I did not develop a love for photography until the advent of DSLR technology and until 2007 when I had a chance to travel to Vietnam, the country of my birth. Once in Vietnam, I was amazed and fell in love with Vietnam's cultures and exotic beauties; I started to record everything that I saw with a camera so that I can share my experiences with friends, family, and everyone in the world. My photographic skills have evolved and changed since then, but everyone of my photo still strives for the same thing today - tell a story.
I currently live in Denver, Colorado with a beautiful wife, a son, and a daughter.

"I don't remember how when and where i found chu Long on flickr, but i was so impressed by the stories behind your photos. Oh dear, some photos of chu Long even make me teary-eyed :( but precious moments aint they, and you captured them at justttt the right moment :] Also i admire you ALOT for being in the US for more or less than 30 years and still being able to keep that vietnamese pride and tradition in you [that i can tell through your photos]. Keep up the good work! Kiddo admire you, chu' :]"

"Yo, yo, people, listen up. It's your boy, Nghia. I'd appreciate a lot for your eyes looking at these lines. This is a testimony about Mr DufferLong. He's a very sophisticated guy. You can tell a story throughout this pictures without having to read the captions.
He can spend time going around places to capture candids, which, to me, is a very good thing to spend time on. Flickr Vietnamese could not survive without his moderation and knowledge.
I hope his house is locked carefully enough, because I will try to steal his 135mm f2L some days.
And don't get me wrong, I hate him, because he has a beautiful wife."

"Each photo taken by him has a beautiful story behind. Sharp in quality, intense in colors and deep in meaning. I'm a great fan of his stream, but only now I dare to admit it :P Anh Long day em chup anh di!"
