About

My name is Julian Vankim and I’m an editorial, fashion and commercial photographer, who specializes in people with a style of color, conceptual and energetic imagery. I am constantly evolving and constantly breaking boundaries.

I am a Washington, D.C.-area native who regularly shoots the glossy cover of Metro Weekly magazine, the D.C.-area’s most popular LGBT publication. I used to serve as the official photographer for the renowned DC Cowboys dance troupe, and as promotional photographer for the high-profile Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington. From action shots to studio poses, my photography is recognized as among the edgiest today.

At first impression, I’m quiet but diminutive young man but my artistry, on the other hand, is explosive.
