Jangis Marifet

JangisJangis is lead contributing writer for the ViewFinder and an expert in short-form documentary filmmaking. Originally from Izmir Turkey, Jangis came to the University of California Santa Barbara in 2007. Studying around the world in places like Turkey, Prague, Spain, and the United States, Jangis always brings a unique perspective to any project he undertakes. Whether camping through the deserts of California or capturing the urban sub-cultures of Prague, Jangis is never one to turn down a good story. A willingness to put himself in precarious situations has led Jangis to see places most people would turn away from. When he isn’t shooting his latest masterpiece, Jangis likes playing music on his saz, guitar, harmonica, ukelele, or bongos.


Tom Ky Tran

TomTom is lead business developer for the ViewFinder and overall photography expert.  After earning a BA in Political Economy from the University of California, Berkeley, Tom quickly learned he wasn’t satisfied with the typical 9 to 5 job. Whether overhauling a young startup’s business model, programming through the night at a hack-a-thon, or shooting an ad campaign for a local brand, Tom can never be pinned down to one field. As an instructor and volunteer for the NGOs Afroaid and AccionenRed in Madrid, Tom learned that at the core of every story are people who care about something. An adept ability to analyze and distill the core message of a story makes Tom an invaluable asset to the ViewFinder. In his spare time, Tom enjoys fiddling around with database management systems as well as reading up on the latest political debates and philosophy.
