Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Incase you were wondering, my name is actually pronounced Bryan. Now you may be wondering why it is spelt the way it is and that is because I come from Medellin, Colombia where the name Brayan is actually a common name. After having lived in Medellin for several years, my family and I moved to Boston, a city which I am happy to call home. Currently, I am attending Bentley University in which I am pursuing a major in Information Design and Corporate Communications. Some of my favorite hobbies include; eating, sleeping, taking photos, meeting new people, and exploring!
When did you realize your passion for photography?
Even though I had previously taken some photography courses, it was not until I discovered the community of Instagramers on Instagram that I really began to develop a passion for photography. Since discovering this community, I have surrounded myself with creative individuals whom continuously inspire me.
How has becoming an Instagram influencer impacted your life or career?
One of the great things about being an influencer definitely has to be getting invited to events where you have the ability to meet many influential people as well as learning about really cool products. This has allowed me to not only work with great brands, but also build connections.
What is your advice to aspiring photographers on Instagram?
It’s not about the likes, it’s about meeting new people, exploring, and learning from each other. Never be afraid to send a person whom inspires you a message asking them for some tips.
