Why Don’t the Pros Come to Korea?

By on Jul 10, 2016 in Photography | 5 comments

For years I have been following so many pro photographers and I was always bummed when they would do “Asian Tours” and skip completely over Korea. While Seoul may not be as popular as the so-called “world-renowned” locations like Beijing or Tokyo, it is not to say that it should be passed over. Currently, the food scene is picking up. Over the past year or so, great chefs like Anthony Bourdain and Jamie Oliver have visited and were impressed with the warmth of the people and the food. However, it seems that only local Korean photographers and the expats are the ones taking the memorable and striking images in Korea. What about that TV Show in Korea? Off hand, I can think only the show on Arirang called “In Frame” that brings great Magnum photographers like David Alan Harvey to Korea. There have been other photographers which I will mention a bit...

Creatively Creating Cinemagraphs

By on Jun 29, 2016 in Photography | 0 comments

With the recent launch of my Cinemagraph Pro Tutorial course, I pushed myself think of new ways to make cinemagraphs that stood out. I love taking landscapes and turing them into cinemagraphs. I think that is what sort of put me on the map with regards to this new form of expression. However, that may not appeal to everyone and thus, I had to really get to work and try and find new cinemagraphs to make in order to really get the word out. The Ramyeon Cinemagraph This one really took some time. I am not a food photographer but I do love and have to take food shots from time to time. This one I used a similar technique to that of the Death Wish Coffee project that I did a little while ago. However, I really wanted to focus on the steam and that proved to be a bit of a challenge. Not only did it not steam up enough, the noodles cooled too fast. I ended up using a kettle of hot water to...

This Might Not Work: Overcoming Failure in Photography

By on May 16, 2016 in Photography | 0 comments

This past Saturday was an eventful day. I was pretty much shooting and editing from sun up to sundown. I had to get footage for a documentary that I am a part of in the morning and then I was running a workshop at Beomosa temple that evening. It was a great feeling to know that I have built a day around what I love to do. However, there was this thought in the back of my head that kept me from getting too excited. It was telling me that there was a possibility that this workshop could be a failure. I ignored it and pushed through. Little did I know that the gut-feeling was right. I left Ulsan with more than an hour and a half to get to Beomosa which normally only takes about 50 minutes on an average day. Sadly, just as we go near Busan a fender-bender slowed traffic to a crawl. It too forever! A we finally made it the to the toll gate, it was already time to start the workshop. I was...

Korean Cherry Blossoms of 2016

By on Apr 26, 2016 in Photography | 0 comments

Spring is always time for a feeling of renewal. With the changing of the weather, also comes a lighter feeling for me. It has been a great start to the year and I have achieved a lot in just the first few months. However, I started to really come around during this past week. Not sure if it was the fact that I have had my head down for the last little while trying to finish my assignments for my masters degree or if it was the just the hazy weather here in Ulsan. At any rate, I felt a sense of freedom these last few days as projects for this term have all been handed in. I also taught my first ever workshop. The weather had a limiting factor as I had originally planned for the workshop to be on a Sunday but the the weather in Ulsan had other plans. With a beautiful sunshine on the Seongnam Lake Park, two amazing students showed up. I was a little shocked that they were both great...

The Death Wish Coffee Project

By on Apr 15, 2016 in Photography, Tutorials | 0 comments

A few months ago I came across a Death Wish Coffee,  a company that makes “the world’s strongest coffee” and I was impressed. I was really into their site and their image. Having spent a year in Vancouver working with the top tier of baristas in the coffee industry, I have always had a soft spot for smaller coffee companies like this. So I decided to reach out to them and see if they would be interested in letting me make some cinemagraphs for them and to see what sort of response that would get. This was the first time that I ever reached out to anyone and also purposely made cinemagraphs for a project. To my surprise Death Wish was onboard and a few weeks later, I got some of the strongest coffee I had ever tasted. It came at the best possible time too. I had about 2 presentations and 3 academic papers to finish for my masters at St.FX and I needed something with a...

The 5 Day Deal: Why you should buy it NOW!!

By on Feb 29, 2016 in Photography, Reviews | 0 comments

Every year or so, I write about the 5 Day Deal. I have been an affiliate in the past and I truly enjoyed the entire experience. I opted out this year but am still promoting the event because I truly believe in even without the benefit of being an affiliate. So yes, I even bought the bundle as well because it is that good. Here is why this year I want you to buy it. First and foremost is that it helps real people. This isn’t one of those events where people get rich and then “donate” a tiny bit to some random multinational company charity that then pays a good looking celebrity to make a show on social media donating what’s left of the tiny donation. This money goes to real people who really need it. Learn more about the 5DayDeal Charity partners here. The second reason is that the package this year is actually designed to help you as a photographer grow your...
