Kim Oanh Nguyen is an award-winning photojournalist and corporate culture and headshot photographer based in Portland, Oregon.

She is a graduate of the University of Oregon School of Journalism and has spent the last two decades as a freelance photojournalist for newspapers, magazines and online editorials throughout the country. She now applies these skills to capturing people's personalities within their professional environments.

Kim's style, heavily influenced by her background as a photojournalist, is fresh, sometimes quirky, and always unique.


In 2005 Kim and her husband Kjell started mounting Kim's art photography on maple plywood panels. To cut a long story short, their combined efforts led to the birth of Plywerk: an eco-conscious photo mounting & art panel company that now serves clients all over the world. On you can upload your own digital images to be mounted on eco-conscious bamboo panels.
