Brief Summary

I am Nicholai Go, a student currently majoring as an Architect in Rhode Island School of Design, the sole proprietor of a business and restaurant in the Philippines called Bar Dolci, and finally the photographer of ngo|photography.

Born and raised in the Philippines, I was not exposed to the fine-art side of photography and therefore it deterred me from starting photography. However, when I went to America and learned more and more about the international world of photography, I picked up the camera and started shooting.

My personal philosophy on photography revolves around the notion of its power and ability to make people believe. I take advantage of this idea and compel people to look twice and feel a sense of confusion or fear. I want to question the relationship and the boundaries of photography and the human condition.

I am a story-teller and photography is my medium. I use photographs to portray my own stories and ideas regarding the human condition, reflecting my own experiences. I believe that the concept of the shoot should drive a shoot. The skills involved and needed to accomplish your concept will follow.

I have a vast background in the arts, including drawing, painting, graphic design and dance, which have become my strengths as a photographer. As an artist, I already have a different perspective on the world and the human conditions. As a dancer, I was given the ability to find the right time to capture moments.

I am proficient in both digital and film photography but my main medium tends to be digital. I have a strong grasp of post production processes, including retouching. I have a wide array of photographic equipment including a D800 and my own complete lighting equipment.
