CORBAN OF LUNDBORG DESIGN | EST. 2011
Corban Lundborg was born and raised in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. As a youth, he found himself in trouble both in-and-out of school. As far back as he can remember, he looked most forward to art class but by the time he reached high school he was seeking adventure instead of a classroom.
During his senior year of high school (2009), Corban enlisted with the United States Air Force. At the age of 18, he arrived at his first assignment in South Korea, where he served as a Chemical Warfare Supply Specialist. Corban picked up a tattoo apprenticeship on the weekends in Seoul at a tattoo shop called Tattoo Korea, and this experience would reignite his love for the arts. After a tour in South Korea, he was assigned to Aviano Air Base in Northern Italy for a three-year tour. In Italy Corban started painting canvas' and realized he wanted to pursue full-time art.
After four years of honorable active service in the Air Force, he decided to move back to Minneapolis and live as a mentor in a Gospel centered half-way house, assisting men returning from prison or treatment. Using the G.I. Bill he enrolled at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD). Following a year of art school, Corban again felt uninspired by the classroom and left to pursue life as an entrepreneurial artist and travel.
Master Sergeant Corban Lundborg is currently serving in the Air Force Reserve as a combat photojournalist at the 4th Combat Camera Squadron based out of Charleston, South Carolina. Corban is one of the unit's designated aerial photographers, working as fully qualified aircrew. The unit supports the Department of Defense with frontline imagery in combat, aerial and humanitarian environments. Corban's photojournalism work has been recognized around the world. He earned the title "Air Force Photographer of the Year" in the 2018 media awards and won first place at the 2022 international Best Combat Camera Competition.
Corban is now living in Atlanta, Georgia where he creates full time, working on a variety of projects in different mediums, from painting to woodworking. He also leads a creative agency with his wife called CALM Collective, where he works as a creative director and cinematographer. His camera work has attracted top companies and non-profits from around the country, who have hired him as a director of photography on national ad campaigns and commercials. Moving forward, Corban's dream is to use his creative gifts to serve others and Christ.
