Photo Clubs around Korea

One of best things about photography is the community that can be built from hanging out with people with a similar passion. The benefit of this is that you can learn from each other but as well as just be more in the moment. These clubs exist online and off-line as well and this can be a good thing. For myself I like shoot with people but I feel that I am more effective on my own. However, the online discussions can really give you some tips about what to improve or where to shoot.

Over the past few years, I have met so many great people from different clubs around Korea. If you are new or are starting out, I would highly recommend getting involved in these groups and getting out with some people. The connections and networks you can make are really valuable and could lead to some great exposure. Below are a list of the groups that I recommend. In this day and age, most of them exist on facebook, so you may already be a part of them.

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.

Renting Camera Gear in Korea

A little while ago a reader emailed me about renting camera gear. Honestly, I thought that it was possible in Korea, especially for foreigners. I know it is a silly notion because these services are very common in the West, especially in the US. However, it never crossed my mind until someone emailed me about it.

With some research I have found a few places that you can rent gear. A special thanks goes out to the SPC for their informative posts on this, they were really helpful.
