Having not yet crossed one of the biggest tourist draws from my Korea bucket lists, I ventured out into the woods of Gyeongbuk this Chuseok to soak in the soothing atmosphere of Haeinsa, one of Korea’s three jewel temples.
After cutting my teeth with the camera in South Korea, I pick out 5 of the peninsula’s most influential photographers, all of whom have helped me no end. While there is an almost indefatigable pool of talent in Korea, these guys are at the top of their game.
I’ve never been one of those photographers who liked to haul a lot of gear around, and so I decided to explore whether it would be possible to produce sweeping scenes without the use of a dedicated wide-angle.
I revisited an abandoned dwelling in the heart of Tongyeong, South Korea. Read on for still life photography from the eerie scene and for a write up from a friend and shooting partner of mine, Joshua Herrin, in the first guest post on The Lost Lens.
This aerial photo from Daegu’s Seomun market was my favourite shot of the past weekend. PIK Magazine asked me to write up the story behind the shot; I dish out my usual helpings of advice as well as some technical tips and tricks.
This collection of images wasn’t borne out of intentions of creating a project, but of my love of losing myself above the clouds. As I explored more of the nation’s rugged tops, it made sense to document a collection of South Korea’s lofty escapes.
‘Bridging the Gap’ is a small monochrome project shot on Somaemuldo, a beautifully rugged, remote island off the south coast of the Goseong Peninsula, Gyeongsangnam Province, South Korea.
To say I’ve been a little inactive this week would be an understatement. I thought I’d use this blog update to fill you in on why I appear to have fallen from the face of the Earth, and what I’ve been up to since I posted last.
A first for me in photography, I find my work selected for the cover of a nationally circulated magazine, Busan Haps, as well as a feature on the Must-See places in Korea. Read on to see the photographs and to find out more.
As a lover of live music (this being such a rarity in my neck of the woods), I couldn’t resist the draw of Korea’s newest indie-music festival. Camera in hand, I paid into Big Day South, held in Daegu’s vibrant city-centre. See how I got on with some photography and my reaction from the concert.
