My name is Tenzin Yangchen. I am a young accounting professional in the Washington DC metro area. When I'm not busy working, I like to take on a journey with my camera, whether it be the neighborhood park or the landmarks in downtown DC. I've always admired photographers for their power to evoke emotion from a single image. I pursued my passion in photography after receiving a camera as a gift. I feel completely free when I'm taking photographs because this is one place or moment where I dictate the outcome without anyone's guidance or pressure. I also love the power to portray objects, nature or people in various manners. I like taking all sorts of photos but my main interest lies in shooting nature.
