We had the good fortune of connecting with Dylan Tran and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dylan, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
When I started my photography business I never knew it could lead me to many opportunities to collaborate with some people I didn’t know who would work with me. Because I started pursuing photography and filmmaking in high school which was in 2018. It was tough figuring out what to create and finding ideas that could work into my own image making it into reality. But after a while of understanding what design and editing I want in my photos I knew that it could fit my personality and creativity. When you start something that you love to do, you expect the unexpected of yourself believing you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it. But the main point is to work hard to chase your dream, never doubt yourself and meet new people because you never know what kind of impact it could affect your life.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What I’m excited and proud about is that I get to continue my career as a photographer collaborating with new people and ideas expressing what kind of work style I do. I’ve got to where I am today is by learning all the basic techniques of editing, photography, and filming pushing the boundaries of my imagination. The lesson I’ve learned throughout my experience is by improving your skills seeing the difference between your old and new. Realizing how much you progress in a lifetime and understanding what kind of idea your audience wants to see from you that you create. What I want the world to know about me is the vision and inspiration of how passionate I am, creating content that the audience would want to see or recreate into their own idea.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I have 3 spots in San Diego that are my favorite which are La Jolla, Sunset Cliffs, and Pacific Beach. But personally, I would choose La Jolla, not because of the beaches but the restaurants and environment around it in one place. La Jolla is a nice and quiet area seeing the ocean crash between each other at the same time smelling amazing food as you explore. I would take my friends to a nice seafood chain or Italian if they’re allergic to seafood and order the best dish they have on the menu having a great time with each other talking about life. Afterward, get some kind of dessert they haven’t tried seeing their recreation if it’s good or not. In my point of view, the most interesting place in La Jolla is that there is a hidden swing where people go to taking pictures but having fun while seeing the ocean right in front of you.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to thank my friends for letting me use my creativity and ideas towards them and my family for supporting me through my journey as a creator chasing a dream I never knew I would pursue in my life. However, I’m glad I did because it open my point of view from a different perspective understanding to be patient, open-minded, and more.
