2014 Year in Review – Part 3 – Seoul Photographer

Finally, it’s time to get Part 3 of my Year in Review as a Seoul photographer underway. Parts 1 and 2 can be found here and here. Last time we left a couple of stories unfinished, so I’d like to start this post with those. After a two month wait, it was finally time to see Amber and Matt again, and be there as they took custody of their too-cute-to-be-true son Asher. It would also be time that I got […]

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 […]

Day in the Life – Murphree Family – Seoul Photographer

Of all the things I photograph here in Seoul, by far the most rewarding are the family sessions I am able to be part of. I have witnessed more than 20 children meeting their new families through the international adoption system, and spent hundreds of hours with expat families looking to create a memento of their time here in Korea. Brooke and Justin got in touch way back in January of this year. They had seen the work I did […]

2014 Year in Review – Part 1- Seoul Photographer

December already? 2014, you have been a wild ride. I have met and worked with some absolutely amazing people this year in Seoul. Photography is a medium that opens unimaginable doors, and this year there have been some amazing sights on the other side of those doors. For the next four weeks, I would like to share with you some of those experiences, and some of the photographs that went with them. To begin my year, I was given the […]

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 […]

Meet Nell Brown – Seoul Photographer – Part 3

“She’s not the same girl you met in the summer, is she?” Mary Leigh posted to me. Indeed she is not. Nell has come forward in leaps and bounds. She is energetic, loving and full of personality. Watching her current family session vicariously through family instagram posts, I was extremely envious of their photographer. Nell was as open and active as her brothers, and that’s saying something! Part of me wishes I was there to capture that part of their […]

Meet Nell Brown Part 2 – Seoul Photographer

It’s been a while since my last update here, as there’s been a lot on the back-burner here. The constant stream of Nell updates that flows through my social media reminds me daily that I need to finish this story. So, here it is. Part 2 of meeting Nell in Seoul. I mentioned last time how much this assignment made me remember the importance of what I do as a photographer, and the second session was no different from the […]

Nell's Family - Seoul Photographer

Meet Nell Brown – Seoul Photographer – Part 1

There are few things that remind me that what I do as a photographer is important more than people’s reaction to the photographs I give them, to the story I have told for them. Mary Leigh reminded me of that time and time again, even before we met here in Seoul. I first worked with some good friends of hers, Lori and Steve, back in January of this year. Before Lori and Steve had even left Korea, Mary Leigh had […]

Lawson's Family Session - Deoksugung, Seoul

Lawson’s Adoption – Seoul Family Photographer

Lawson appeared on my Facebook page last month as a silhouette. It was difficult to resist the urge to share this adoption story right away, but rules will be rules! He is now safely home with his family in the United States, and I can finally share their joy with you. Josh and Elizabeth had been in the process of adopting for a long time, jumping through the various hurdles required for the process. They were finally matched with Lawson […]

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 […]
