If you’ve been following my journey online, then you are probably aware that I am engaged to this amazing human.
This is Albert Tran. My biggest supporter who is trying to make it in Esports Photography as a professional photographer!
Photography is his passion, he has spent years honing his art and technique, and provides something different with his use of bright colors, ability to capture audience and player emotion, and his lighting technique. *All photos by Albert Tran*
Right now, Albert is shooting on a Nikon D800, and it is beginning to show it’s age. In the world of technology and photography, staying on top of current market upgrades is highly important! The camera that he is looking to get is the Nikon Z 6II FX-Format Mirrorless Camera Body w/NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S with adapter so that he can continue to use his current lenses and focus on just upgrading to a new camera body.
Your support will show him that he deserves to pursue this as a career, that his talent isn’t a waste, and that you believe in him. There is only so much I can do, and with your help, I know we all can make his dreams come true!
Donation Goal: $2,500
For any donations over $200, I will personally reach out to you and work to schedule a shoot with you and him (based on his schedule and location preferences**, no weddings*, 30 minute-1 hour shoot max*).
Feel free to download and utilize my own research for your needs!
The video presentation will be uploaded in January.
Diversity in Esports, and the FGC is vital for growth as a community and from a business standpoint.
Current data reflects that women make up less than 50% of all gamers (Statista), but have over 81% buying power on all purchases. (Top Media Advertising) By not making them a priority market for your event, tournament, or organization, you are ignoring a major demographic with money to spend.
Focusing on safe events for women and LGBTQ+ audiences would allow your event, or business to flourish and grow.
It’s important to hire marginalized voices and people because their input and stories would create a better connection and impact to reach these people and attract new potential gamers, players, and competitors.
