Pre-wedding Photographer in Seoul, Korea - David and Sojeong

David and Sojeong – Pre-wedding Photography in Seoul

In early summer last year, my friends David and Sojeong reached out to me and let me know they were getting married. We scheduled in a pre-wedding photography session before the big day to get some images not only for themselves to keep but to use on the wedding day and as an invitation to their friends and family. Over a cup of coffee, we decided to mix the photos between the gritty back streets of the Euljiro district and […]

Stelzer Hanbok Family Photography Session – Seoul, Korea

The Stelzer family reached out just a couple of weeks before autumn was about to get into full swing. They were looking to have a hanbok family photo session and wanted to incorporate Korea’s traditional architecture and some of the autumn leaves. Autumn was a little unpredictable this year, but we got lucky with some beautiful colours and a cloudy day to accentuate them. Starting under the autumn canopy, we spent some time playing in the leaves and giving Alexander […]

Choosing Your Photo Shoot Location in Korea

So, you’ve decided on having some pictures made while you’re in Korea, but where to do them? There are so many different places and so much variety, despite the small size of the country. Even Seoul itself has so much potential in so many different styles. Do you choose a park? A palace? The urban streets? Maybe you want to leave Seoul altogether? Let’s take a look at a few different options in the big city, then a couple further […]

Ramsey Family Custody Day in Seoul

Of all the work I do, custody photography sessions with families are still the ones that give me the most trepidation beforehand. There is so much to capture, so many emotions, and so little that can be predicted or prepared for. Nothing is as difficult to photograph or as easy to immerse myself in than one of these sessions. Working with the Ramseys for their custody day was a really rewarding experience. Poor Gage had a bad cold and his […]

Jeonju Korea Pre-Wedding Photographer - Kim and Chris

Kim and Chris Korea Pre-Wedding – Jeonju, Korea

As Korea pre-wedding sessions get more and more popular, I’ve been able to travel to various parts of Korea including Jeju Island and Jeonju for beautiful sessions with a really different flavour from Seoul. Kim and Chris were tossing up between a session in Seoul, or traveling to the gorgeous Hanok Village in Jeonju. In the end, we decided to get a beautiful Hanok stay down in Jeonju and spend a whole day wandering the streets together. Being a weekday, […]

Chan Family - Seoul Photographer

Chan Family – Seoul Family Photographer

Betsy contacted me after seeing a family session I had done with some friends of hers from her son’s school. Juggling our relative travel schedules was tricky, but we finally managed to get together and organise a session for the beauty of autumn in Seoul. We got one of the last warm days of the year for this session, and Seoul did not disappoint with some spectacular autumn light for us to work in. With loving parents and energetic children to […]

2016 Year in Review Part 2 – Seoul Photographer

We left off last time at the beginning of spring and sunshine. As April warms up, we tend to getting a lot more pre-wedding photography, and this year was no different. Before getting there, though, I worked with an old client of mine Jeanetic Concepts on Zebra Technologies’ APAC conference out at Incheon’s Grand Hyatt Hotel. The three day conference was held for 300 people across the entire bottom floor of the hotel. On day 2, I was tasked with […]

2014 Year in Review – Part 2 – Seoul Photographer

Part two of my Year in Review as a Seoul Photographer. If you missed Part 1, head on over to check it out. The year began to pick up pace starting in April with the weather warming up, and the year getting underway for everyone. I was more than happy to start it in the warmest part of the country, Jeju Island. Although it poured rain for my solo ride from Jeju City to Seongsan-ri, the weather cleared up and […]

Seoul Photographer - Fuji x-t1

Fuji x-t1 Review – Seoul Photographer

The Fuji x-t1 really needs no introduction. By this stage, you’ve probably heard of it, read some reviews, or bought it. Just like my review of the Fuji x100s, this will not be a technical review, but an emotional one. I’ve used the camera, both personally and professionally for the last 5 months, and I’d like to share with you my thoughts on what it is and what it can do. A lot of this review will compare it to […]

Monk - Seoul Photographer

Patience, or How to Catch a Monk

When we think about patience in photography, possibly the first thing that comes to mind is landscape photography; a lone photographer waiting hours for the perfect light. With digital photography, patience has been taken out of the process almost entirely, and more often than not a quick snap is all that is made of a scene. And often times this is enough, but when we are trying to make a longer lasting piece of art rather than a memory, patience […]
