Julian Burgueno: Interview


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

LET IT BE. in whatever way it comes to you.

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

I want to do so many things I don’t know how to start answering that exactly. I’m in search of nothing in particular exploring everything I can. So I guess you can say I’m a nomad.

Why do you do what you do?

Always wanted to create visuals in anyway that I could didn’t know it would be this way. It’s something

that I’ve always had in the back of my head even when I wasn’t pursuing it, now I’m just lucky enough to be here.

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

About 4-5 years ago when I quit my job and left Arizona (were I had been living for the last 12 years) packed everything I owned and started traveling through the US. I said to myself “ I’m just going to take pictures for the rest of my life” it had taken me so far, I had nothing to loose but everything to expect for.

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

Leave my friends & family, but I knew that at the end I had to do it to do what I really wanted to do. IT IS WHAT IT IS

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

Yes, my brother and my dad. My dad used to be a photographer when he was young, its really inspiring to me to know that my dad was sort of in the same path as me today, his lessons are defiantly something that I keep with me till this day. My brother backpacked in Europe for 9 months with everything he needed in this medium size backpack, to me it was just amazing that he was doing that. He let me know that everything was possible if you really wanted it, and that you didn’t need anyone to do it with, that at the end everything is going to be ok.

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

Don’t get caught on the joog.

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

Working on a Book.

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

Theres no time, find something that you like and fall in love with it.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Aspire to Inspire Everyday B.
