Troy Bronson

My name is Troy, I am an aspiring artist, writer and media producer. I have experience in fashion, location scouting, art, and documentary photography. I am passionate about community volunteer work both at home in California, and abroad. I have worked with the homeless in Los Angeles, and with children affected by the HIV/AIDS crisis in South Africa. As a Media Studies major at the University of California, Berkeley I hope to continue to grow as an artist and advocate.

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.

Bio

Troy Bronson is a U.S. based, international photographer who discovered his love of photography at age ten. He had numerous school and state awards under his belt by the time he started college. He developed his skills in Fashion Photography, working with designers in Mexico and the U.S. After moving to Los Angeles, Troy worked for the Oscar-Nominated French Director of the animated film Madagascar, Bastien Dubois, making his photo debut as a location scout for Madagascar.

Troy is of mixed Indigenous American, European, and Jewish ancestry. He was left before the age of one, to be raised by his maternal Grandmother in the notorious Mexican State of Sinaloa. Her strong influence ensured that he was raised with integrity, ambition, and resilience. Upon returning to the U.S., Troy worked to pursue both the art of photography and his dreams for a first-class education. After studying at Santa Monica College, California, he earned enough credits to transfer to the University of California, Berkeley, where he currently majors in Media Studies. He hopes to use his degree to become a skilled storyteller in various form of media from producing mass media of all genres, to simply becoming a better communicator. His long term goal is to start his own foundation to help youth, like himself, overcome barriers to education and a creative life.

He believes in the power of storytelling through images. With his photography, he strives to inspire others, spread awareness and understanding of global issues, and help build a better global society. To that end, he has traveled to over 31 countries to document the remarkable lives of ordinary people and to share their experiences with others. While he continues to grow in the entertainment industry, he never loses sight of his dream to help underrepresented communities in the U.S. and other parts of the world gain an audience and, therefore, a voice for themselves.
