When did it all start? Age 10, turning our bathroom into darkroom with my Dad, and age 18 when my Mom gave me her old digital point and shoot. My family is pretty musical and creative, and at any point in time my folks will each have some or other project they’re working on. When…

Which photographers had an influence on you, and how did they influence your thinking, photographing, and career path? I would say the biggest influence was Joe Wabe. He taught me a lot about the technical aspects but I think the most influence he had was with my concept of a good composition and what makes a good…

How did you get involved in Photography?  I’ve been interested in photography since I was in high school. In my attic at home, I found my dad’s old film camera (a Pentax K1000), dusted it off, read a few photography books, and walked around everywhere with it. Then, in university, I studied journalism and had…

How do you get inspired? I would have to say that I am inspired by people. Landscape and cityscape usually do not change much. When taking photos starts to seem monotonous, I usually walk the streets of Daejeon/Seoul looking for good shots of people. On the streets I find a large diversity of people, in…
