How Much to Charge for Your Work

Korean Money

“Spec Work” Does Not Pay the Bills

Spec work basically means that you work for free to build your portfolio prior to actually getting hired to do a job. This is great and the first time around seems like a wonderful idea. Think about it, a cool magazine reaches out to you because they seen your posts on facebook groups. If you don’t have any experience, you may think the best way to get your feet wet is you take a couple of free gigs to get some exposure. They only exposure that you will get likely is that of being a photographer that works for free.

Recently,  I had the pleasure of being at the opening of Peter DeMarco’s 2nd solo exhibition titled “The Nomad Within: The Wonders of Asia”. I regretfully missed his first one but being as this exhibition is Ulsan, I had no excuses.

With great pleasure I announce that my photos will be a part of this years Ulsan International Photography Festival. This is an event that I have paid money to just look at the amazing photos and now my photos will be there! As you can tell, I am quite excited about this.


Nik Software

There has been a lot of talk about Google buying the industry gem that is NIK Software. If you are not familier with NIK these are the people who make great plugins for programs like Photoshop, Lightroom, and Aperture.  These plugins span a wide range of artistic styles and will nicely fit into your style, I am sure, as well.

I don’t too much into the debates about NIKON or CANON, Google+ or Facebook. My main concern here is  ”do these plugins actually work or are they just putting crap over-top of my photos?” and “Will they make my post processing easier?” Suffice to say that these plugins do in fact work well, especially inside of Lightroom 4 and they do make my editing a lot easier.

Now before you point out the obvious about the fact that this is a “Korean photography blog” and  how dare I bring up Japan, just let me point out that a lot of people I know have been asking about Fukuoka…. Japan, for a while now and I thought that I would share some thoughts, tips and tricks.


Panmunjom Travel Center Review

IMG_3737_8_9_tonemapped

If you spend any time as a tourist in Seoul you will no doubt end up on a tour of the DMZ. There are many tours going either to Dorasan Station and the 3rd infiltration tunnel or the JSA. Prices differ and so do the experiences. Panmunjom Travel Center offer a different kind of tour experience and one that is sure to leave you with a better understanding of what the situation is like along the DMZ The main quality that set this tour apart from the many other tours out there is the fact that for part of the tour, you get to travel and interact with a North Korean defector.

Every Month or so the Ulsan Mirae (Future) Photography Forum brings in a new speaker to talk to it’s members about a range of different topics. If you remember a while ago, I was their first speaker and it was an interesting time. This time around it seemed more of a formal event. People seemed more engaged with the speaker and certainly asked a lot more questions.


The Shinhwa Photo Walk Review

group

So yesterday turned out to be a little more gloomy than what I was hoping for. It still didn’t stop people from coming out to get some great shots of the area. The interesting part was that we were not the only group out taking some shots. There were a number of Korean photographers about taking different shots of the village and even using some pretty darn expensive gear and a few models as well.


Photo Walk: Ulsan Shinhwa Village

Back in July, Martin Rehder wrote a great article on Ulsan Online about the Ulsan Shinhwa Art Village and I immediately thought that it would be a great place for a photo walk. I didn’t get around to checking the place out until this past weekend and I was pleasantly shocked at how interesting the place was. There were so many little paths leading off the main road that it is a treasure trove of photographic subjects.
