Kesler Tran knows what’s sexy. This photographer is the standard bearer for stylized erotic imagery. His amazing journey began a few years ago after buying a camera and shooting models at car shows. Now he is capturing intoxicating models in natural environments using the shadows as a framework.
Behind the Kesler Tran Lens
Looking through the varied social media accounts of Kesler Tran is like taking a stroll through a candy shop. One after another, there are delectable models with perfect forms and soft emotions illuminating the screen. The imagery Tran composes is pure poetry. He does a great job at using the seductive nature of the female form while maintaining his own artistic standards.
“A good image is more than just about expression, it has to carry a thought behind it, the way it was created, a soul if you will.” – Kesler Tran
The photos Kesler Tran creates are never trashy. He has incredible skill in capturing sophisticated and graceful poses without going overboard. One can instantly see the connection between the model and photographer. The images never look forced or contrived and the women look at ease while conveying emotions through the lens. It is apparent that Tran gives his models the freedom to express their sensuality. And this translates well on film.
For inspiration, Kesler Tran trawls the internet, focusing on travel blogs and social media in search of the next big idea or location. His spontaneous working method is often described as frustrating, especially for his crew. Tran prefers taking road trips in search of the perfect background, rather than shooting in a studio setting. He enjoys being responsible for the workload because it challenges him to produce better images. Kesler Tran is most satisfied when capturing the eternal qualities of beauty, happiness, and sorrow; hoping to encourage us to stop and reflect.
