Focus on Videographers - Devin Graham

Devin Graham, aka Super Tramp

Devin Graham aka Super Tramp started his Youtube channel just over a year and a half ago, but has already established himself as one of the top YouTubers in the world. In the last 30 days alone, Devin has gained over 100,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel and 20,000,000 views. Through social media and world wide recognition, Devin continues to lead the YouTube world when it comes to extreme activities, having fun, and making it all look stunning through his ability and talent in creating viral videos.  Though Devin has successfully produced many videos ranging from nature in Tahiti, to puppies at Christmas, his main success and niche has been that of extreme sports and activities. Devin’ s career through YouTube is rapidly growing each day, and he continues to produce videos that entertain and inspire "the dreams we live."

Pictureline: Tell us about yourself.  Where are you from?  What are you doing in Hawaii?

Devin Graham: I'm from Portland, Oregon. I have been taking pictures my whole life, and I love it. Ever since I was little, I had a camera I was taking pictures with. I would use my parents' camera to film as well. My friends were into it as well, and we would all make movies together, but I'm the only one that went for it as a career. I went to BYU film school, but dropped out the last year to pursue my film dreams by going to Hawaii to work on a documentary called "Transcend: The Jon Mozo Story."  You can check out the movie trailer below.  My goals are to become one of the top YouTubers in the world right now. Eventually, I will do a couple feature films.

Pictureline: How did you come about conceiving of the shoots? How did you find your locations?

Devin Graham:  I find my locations by just asking around, or driving around.

Pictureline:  Did everything go as planned or did you have to make some adjustments?

Devin Graham: Filming the rope swing, the first day it was super cloudy, and I wanted the sunny vibe. So we had two days of filming. You can check out the video we did of the behind-the-scenes for the shoot.
