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 […]

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 […]

Ezra's Family Session Seoul

Ezra’s Family – Seoul Photographer

Last time, we met Ezra and his parents Ester and Dan. Ester and Dan are one of the few couples lucky enough to be able to stay in Korea during the entire adoption process, and get to know their son as well as the system allows. As we saw last time, Ezra bonded quickly with them and was more than happy to assist in their moving process. Dan’s fun-loving nature, and Ester’s outpouring of love gave him a very easy […]

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 […]

Seoul Couple Photographer

Couple Photographer – Leah and Preston

I had the pleasure of spending the day with Leah and Preston back in May before they left Korea this time around. After a couple of years give-or-take on their tour of the peninsula, they were regretfully finished with their time here, and wanted to capture some photographs of themselves that would remind them of it. We chatted over coffee and came up with a style that would work for an already married couple; one that would not include standing […]
