QT Luong is a full-time freelance nature and travel photographer from San Jose, California.
Born to Vietnamese parents in France, he was trained as a scientist (PhD U. Paris). The revelation of the high Alps led him to become a mountain climber and wilderness guide. When he came to the US to conduct research in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Image Processing, he felt in love with the National Parks. After he became the first to photograph all of them in large format, Ken Burns featured him in "The National Parks: America's Best Idea" (2009).
He has been profiled in more than a dozen press articles (eg, Boston Globe, National Geographic Explorer, Parks Magazine, Outdoor Photographer), where he was called a "modern master" as well as "today's leading photographer of America's National Parks". His photographs are the subject of two large format books "Beautiful North America" and "Spectacular Yosemite". They have also been published in every possible media within three dozen countries, and displayed in museum and gallery solo exhibits on both US coasts.
