Yen Baet is a self-taught photographer born and raised in the Philippines, and also lived in the United States, Japan, Germany and currently in England. Her love for photography takes her around the globe in search for that picture-perfect place, whether it be a sprawling metropolis or a tucked-away corner in a small unknown town. Her affinity for bridges and reflections leads her to set up tripod along waterways, from the never-ending Danube to the romantic Rhine to the picturesque Seine and Thames, and the winding canals of Amsterdam and Venice.
A large part of her photography focuses on, but is not limited to, long-exposure shots taken during the best light of the day - twilight or the blue hour.
Yen's work has graced the pages of airline and photography magazines, travel books, calendars, catalogues and websites worldwide, to include National Geographic Traveller, CNN Travel, Islands Magazine, UK Telegraph, N-Photo, Digital Camera and more. It has been seen in trade fairs and exhibitions in Germany, France, Poland, Italy and Hungary. Her photo Quechua Family in Cusco
(Peru, 2012) is among the images awarded by Steve McCurry and the WPGA to be exhibited in Argentina's Borges Cultural Center in 2013. She is also a recipient of National Geographic awards for her photos Rainy Night in Hallstatt
(Austria, 2011), Breakfast by the Bay
(Montenegro, 2012), and for her Thailand
(2012) album which earned her an exclusive exhibition in New York City on February 2013.
Having travelled to over 40 countries and counting, her current portfolio contains an extensive collection of Europe and also covers some of the US, Asia and South America.
