Tue Tran fell in love with photography and filmmaking at a later age. In his short 5 year tenure, he has produced work for clients such as CNN Great Big Story and the Sierra Club. He specializes in outdoor and travel photography, with experience shooting for corporate and nonprofit events, weddings, family portraits, and aerial photography. Some may say it's a lost art, but Tue is just beginning to find it. He has the unique capability to connect people from behind the camera, and want to use his skills to reach every corner of the world, and create inspiring images that will influence change in the world.
There was something about capturing those candid moments on camera that became so intrinsically rewarding. There's nothing I love more than to sit hours on end, sometimes not eating, to edit a photo just right. Understanding composition, lighting, and your subject is one thing, but I truly believe the editing process is where the image really comes to life.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Shooting people and places is definitely my specialty. Some of my best shots are never staged but in those moments where my clients least expect it. I like to have fun with my clients while keeping things professional. It helps takes the edge off and helps bring out the personalities of my subjects.
