Danko Vu: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Take what you love to do and put 110% into it no matter what.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

The chillest person you will ever meet.

Why do you do what you do?

I want to create images for my fans to enjoy.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

When I started seeing that my work had a unique look to it and I was digging that. Then, other people started digging my work and that makes me love what I do even more.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Financial problems starting up. My family has always supported me and helped me grind through it.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I take inspiration from everywhere. Not one particular person. I take a inspiration anywhere it can be found. You can never stop finding inspiration.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

At first, I didn’t take enough pride in my work and did a lot of stuff for free. But, as I started getting better and doing more work, I realized that art is invaluable and I should not be undercut for what I do.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

So many projects coming up! Lots of shoots. Stay tuned!

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Chase your dreams and pave your own path. But one thing to keep in mind is there is nothing wrong with a back up plan. Better to have a plan b in case the original plan fails, than to have nothing to fall back on if the road gets bumpy.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Stay Hungry and Keep Driving Forward.
