Meet videographer AJ Quon

What does a typical day look like for you?

I feel very lucky to be able to have a career where there are no real “typical days” as things are always on the move or there are always new projects to execute or concept. I guess something that is consistent on a day-to-day basis is the ability to be creative and inspired by people around me. 

Tell us about your move from graphic design to social media?  Was it a conscious transition or something that just happened?

I wouldn’t say it was a conscious decision, but it did feel like a natural progression. I was in college when Instagram launched and I always loved socially sharing things on platforms like Tumblr, MySpace, and Blogspot (lol wow tbt) so it seemed like a cool place to start sharing my work for freelance jobs and from there other opportunities arose!

What inspires you?

I’m inspired by people and storytelling. I love working collaboratively and creating an environment where everyone can feel excited and compelled to bring their ideas to the table and just have a big ol’ creative love fest. Stylistically I’m inspired by movement, colors, angles, and tricks of the eye. 

How do you like living in Philly?  

It’s funny because I’ve been here for about two and a half years but I still feel like I’ve just moved here (but at the same time feel like I’ve been here forever). I love Philly so much, it has such a strong personality and heartbeat. I truly feel like it is such a creatively rich city and I’ve been so blessed to meet some of my best friends here. I just wish there were more palm trees lol.
