Tobin’s Adoption – Korea Photographer

I met Anna-Marie and Brian just a few hours after they landed in Seoul, the birth country of their first son (who I did not get to meet this time around). This time, they were in Korea to meet their second son, Tobin, for the first time. That meeting was less than 14 hours away, and  I was honored to meet this wonderful couple and welcome them to Korea. We talked over a bossam dinner, and I learned of the […]

Jeju Island Pre Wedding – Sook & Maui

Jeju Island; what an idyllic location for a pre wedding shoot. Rolling mountains, vast oceans, clear blue skies. Certainly some of Korea’s most beautiful landscapes. Sook was also notably excited about the prospect. She contacted me a year out to book this shoot. Sook and Maui, being fans of natural scenery, were keen to include a lot of Jeju Island’s picturesque landscapes in their frames. We set to work planning an afternoon on Udo, a small island off the Seongsan […]

Gimme a Lightsource, LG – Seoul Editorial Photographer

Many of you who have shot with me in the past will know that I like light. In fact, I love light. I’ll use ambient, look for light sources at my location, or make light myself. I own 7 different sizes of softbox, countless umbrellas, reflectors, 3 Nikon SB-800s, a Paul C. Buff Einstein, a couple of older Nikon flashes, a 200 lumen LED tourch, and probably a few more things tucked away in boxes that I’ve forgotten about. I use this […]

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 […]

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 […]

박우식 – Korea Photographer

Readers of this blog may remember Woosik. Last year myself, and good friend Damari, set out with the boys from Ground Jam to shoot some promo material for them. Woosik is one of their members. Not only a phenomenal dancer, but after a short hiatus, now getting back into acting. Needless to say, when he contacted me looking for some headshots, I was more than happy to work with him again. Being an unorthodox kind of guy, he wanted some […]

Corwin and Michelle – Winter Pre-wedding Photos in Korea

“Are you sure?” I asked twice when globe-trotting Singaporean couple Cowin and Michelle contacted me about a winter pre-wedding session in Korea. Needless to say that after the last couple of winters, I had my misgivings about how well a shoot would work outside. But Michelle was keen to brave the weather, and do it in style. So we lined up a date, and chose the Korean Folk Village in Yongin as our location. For Corwin and Michelle, this was […]

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 […]

Nadya and Guhya – Seoul Pre Wedding Photographer

Nadya and Guhya came to me around a month ago looking for a pre wedding photographer to make some images they could share with their families. They met here in Korea as students at Dongkuk University. He is from Indonesia, she from Kazakhstan. They met at a party and she left her camera behind when she went home, giving Guhya the perfect excuse to contact her again. They met up several times following, and the rest is history. Yeouido Park […]
