Flashlight Workshop Gyeongju

When it comes to workshops on photography (in English) you have very limited options in Korea. Outside of Seoul, your options almost drop to zero (I am working on changing that very soon). However, Dylan Goldby and Andy Faulk decided to change all that by putting together a workshop in the historic city of Gyeongju this past weekend. I had a chance to meet up with them and check these guys in action as they gave out their photographic secrets by the boatload.

CNN Travel Love

Recently, CNN published an article written by the legendary Peter DeMarco. The article was delayed a bit due to the ferry accident however, it went live last week and it was a nice surprise. I have to really thank Peter for writing such a great article and getting us even more exposure for our work.


The 2014 Seoul P&I Show

In order to fit all the photos on the exhibit space, they had to drop the size down. I am still happy with the print

Seoul Photo & Imaging Show 2013

Being a part of a huge event where pretty much everyone around you is a photographer in one way or another is an intense time. This year I was invited to attend as a member of the “press” which basically meant that I got a free pass and… well that was about it. Not that I am complaining but it was a little unimpressed after jumping on the KTX from Ulsan at 5:22 am to hit Seoul and then an hour on the Subway to get to COEX to get a plastic badge after the emails about being a “VIP blogger”


Buying a Tripod in Korea

 

So the topic of tripods came up recently and I was surprised at how much people didn’t know about this seemly essential tool of photography. Now, depending on what you are shooting, for example if you call yourself a “street photographer” then you would probably more wise to spend your money on skinny jeans and thick black rimmed glasses (I’m kidding). However, for the rest of the photography realm a tripod is a needed investment.


Flash Light Photography Workshop: Recap

 

Participants test some of the new skills they learned during Saturday’s Workshop in Busan.


Flashlight Workshops BUSAN: Off Camera Flash

These days I have been hearing a lot of talk about workshops for photographers in Korea. No doubt they exist but are probably hard to come by in English. Fortunately, Flashlight Expeditions is running regular workshops around the country to meet the needs of aspiring photographers.

Busan Workshop

On June 16th, Dylan Goldby will be in the bright lights of Busan, to make it even brighter by showing us how to use  off camera flash. This is one of the trickiest things to master with photography in some senses, but a working knowledge will payoff in the long run. Dylan will cover wide range of topics directly related to you, the photographer who wants to learn about off camera flash in Korea. Here is what the course will entail (excerpt from www.flashlightexpeditions.com):

Something I was thinking about while enjoying a cup of coffee


Where to Shoot! Anapji

You have all seen this same photo around and it may have put a few of you off from going there. It may have prompted some of you to go there. The fact of the matter is that Anapji Pond in Gyeongju is a beautiful place to visit when the weather is nice.

While the blossoms may have fallen, it is still a great time to head out to Gyeongju and relax in this popular site. The best time to visit, in order to get the “standard Anapji shot” is just after the sun touches down during the blue hour. However, this is the exact time that people go to shoot and trust me, you will no be alone, nor will your shots be original. Should that keep you from going? Hell, no! Go out and mingle. Find a new angle or go at a different time.


Influential People of 2011

 

Well Sol-lal is finished and for those who don’t know what that is, it is when Korea celebrates the Lunar New Year. Being as this is a blog about photography in Korea, I though that I would take this time to look back at the previous year. 2011 was a great year and so far 2012 is shaping up to be even better. I actually learned a great deal in 2011, thus I want to share it with you.

First of all I just want to give a shout out to the people that have inspired me and helped me out of the last year. These selection people have made a great impression on me over the past year and I just wanted say thanks.
