“#Hellomynameis Bryant Eslava (@bryant). I’m a 22-year-old photographer. I started taking photos when I was 16 as a hobby. Now, I stage shoots for teen stars like Cameron Dallas (@camerondallas), and I also do editorial work for brands. I had times when I felt like what I was doing wasn’t going to take me anywhere, but if you want to do something in life, you keep chasing that dream no matter what.
I’m really inspired by music and focus on the smallest details in sound. Sometimes, I try to match up the vibe of the song with the location or person I photograph. I used to give out free mixtapes and prints to people who followed me, just so that they could see which songs I was inspired by in shooting certain photos.
On occasion, I come across photography that blows me away. Almost every time I find out that the photographers are my age or younger.”
