Chris Tran uses his camera as a boarding pass to see the world. He studied film in college at San Diego State University but like so many others, quickly fell victim to a 9-5 job that slowly pushed him to the brink of insanity from boredom. A cheap, practically broken, hand-me-down camera fell into his hands and things changed. Forever.
The visuals he captures range from the soaring aerial drone shots to the silent and powerful world of the underwater environment. In his work he recreates the less than obvious details of a location's beauty while producing the energy and life that brings travelers to far reaching corners of this planet. Working for brands that range from the large corporate world to the boutique local business, Chris is able to use photo and video to speak a language that appeals to a wide audience.
Based out of San Diego, California, Chris Tran’s work has brought him to Southeast Asia, Europe, the South Pacific, and Central America and has collaborated with brands and personalities such as Reebok, Conde Nast, Robin Wright, Bacardi Intl, Conor McGregor, Taittinger Champagne, The Skinny Confidential, and Kate Upton.
