Ming Nomchong certainly knows how to make us pine for summer.

When you look at Byron Bay-based photographer Ming Nomchong’s photos it quickly becomes clear that there’s an intimacy between her, her models, and their environment. It’s as if the camera is an extension of her mind’s eye and she is letting observe how she visually interprets a situation. It makes sense, given how long she’s been shooting for. “I can’t remember not taking photos,” Ming says. “I did it at school and then at uni and it’s just continued on and on…”

Her talents have seen her travel the world, working with huge names in the fashion industry – perks that she is grateful for. “My whole career has been one big crazy amazing experience,” she says. “The fact that I’ve been able to do the things I do and have been the places I’ve been with work still boggles me. I feel really lucky to be able to do what I love.”

Check out a selection of some of Ming’s finest snaps below and head here to follow her sun-kissed Instagram:
