WHO IS JOSEPH TRAN?

“I worked in IT professionally for a number of years after graduating from college only to find myself in a soul-sucking job without a creative outlet. Photography became my outlet. It’s become my true career path.”

Bio

A native of the Northern Virginia, DC Metropolitan area, Joseph Tran is a commercial photographer and filmmaker specializing in portraiture and advertising. His work has been featured in editorial pages of fashion and lifestyle magazines, TV and marketing campaigns, and his commercial clients have included Discovery Channel, Canon USA, Kellogg's, and PBS.

Joseph is well-versed with a technical background in engineering and brings that discipline to all areas of his photography. From creative direction to location and lighting, he manages the complete lifecycle of an advertorial shoot. Most recently his work was exhibited at The Discovery Channel's headquarters in Silver Spring, MD for Asian Heritage month.  

In addition to photography he has a love for short film. When not shooting professional work he can be found organizing creative shoots with local artists.
