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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Flowers - Ezra's Adoption

Ezra Sihu Anderson’s Adoption Story

My time with the Andersons started back in June when they first came to Korea to meet their son, Ezra Sihu. He would be their first adoption; their first child. As with most adoptions recently, the wait had been long and Dan and Ester were ready to take their little boy home. As we would come to see, he was ready for them as well. Over lunch, they played, hugged and fed each other. Ezra drove his toys through his […]

Elias’ Adoption in Photos – Seoul, Korea

The email came in at precisely 2:03am. Why I checked my phone, I couldn’t tell you. But I was thrilled at what I saw. Amanda had seen some adoption photos I’d done recently of a little boy named Davis, and was coming to meet her own son Elias in a couple of weeks. She poured her heart out in that first email, telling me all about her son and the time they had been waiting. She asked if I would […]

Korea Food Photographer

Bull & Barrel Seoul – Korea Food Photographer

Bull & Barrel, a western-style pub in Itaewon that recently made 10 Magazine’s list of the top 7 places to celebrate St Patrick’s day in Seoul, recently had me out to work with them on their new menu and promotional photography. Being a food photographer has its perks. Not the least of which is being able to taste the food at Bull & Barrel after the shoot! Working with Chad and Steve was a blast. We started early to get […]

Davis’ Adoption Day

The email came in. We’re leaving in 24 hours, it said. Can you be available in three days time to photograph our family? That’s how things happen here in Korea, even for adoptions, and thus, adoption photography in Seoul. I quickly checked my calendar. Absolutely, I replied. Lori and Steve were pretty excited at this point, and needless to say, so was I. It would be wonderful to finally put a close on chapter 1 of this story. Steve and […]

Mi Casa – Seoul Photographer

What better way to kick off the new year than indulging a little more? Just before Christmas last year, I got together with the team at Mi Casa to work on their new food banner. As part of their menu refresh and the changes made by chef Manuel, Mi Casa were producing some new promo materials for a giant food banner and their facebook. We met up for an afternoon of food styling, photography, laughter, and of course the best […]

Craftworks Gangnam – Seoul Photographer

When Craftworks first opened at the foot of Namsan, Groove magazine sent me down there to get a few food and interior shots for the magazine. Since that time, I’ve been back to work on menu photos and interiors for Dan on a number of occasions. The great food and drinks usually mean that I go back for more than just the shoots, but it’s always fun working with Dan and his team. So, when Joshua Hall from Wine Korea […]

Rosanna and Andrew – Seoul Pre-wedding Photographer

Rosanna contacted me in September looking for a Seoul pre-wedding photographer to do something “not cheesy”. Rosanna and Andrew met under what they consider fairly unlikely circumstances. In a small town in Canada where neither of them had expected anything life changing to happen. An item left at a party to be returned, a second meeting, and Rosanna and Andrew never looked back. They have spent time apart, respectively pursuing their lives in England and Australia, before coming to Korea […]
