Hi. I’m Ole Hongvanthong. My dad named me after a popular candy in my home country.
I was born in Vientiane, the capital city of Laos. I moved to the US when I was 4 years old. I have not seen my mother in person for 24 years but with technology I can FaceTime her. She even sends me snap shots of baby photos of me and my brothers.
My photography addiction started in high school,which landed me a job at Lifetouch National School Studios. With 8 years of photography and a manager role, I decided to start PhotOle PHOTOGRAPHY full time in 2008.
My artistic photography inspiration is Andy Warhol. His passion to be successful with art is something I strive for in my business.
A perfect day for me would be…
I met Taylor while shopping at COE camera 5 years ago. Since then we have been camera mates and finally collaborated on a project “PARKED” U-haul art truck.
Taylor is a true photojournalist. She sees action and scenes in a different perspective. She’s also a perfectionist with a great eye for detail.
Things she loves most…
What can I say about my amazing assistant Tom. Let’s start with how we were introduced. My perfect day visiting Philadelphia ready to check out the Liberty Bell, I get this random phone call from Tom asking for a job with no experience. I told him no, then thinking back that’s how I was back when I started but no one gave me a chance.
I’m glad I took a chance on Tom. He’s the life of the party at our events. The type of person needed to mix and mingle with guest to get great action shots. Tom’s goal is to make every moment tangible.
When asked if he had the opportunity to make a portrait of 3 people, here were his answers.
