I am a professional landscape photographer based in Southern California. My passion for landscape photography begins with my love for travel. For the last 31 years, I have had the pleasure of traveling to a many places - from remote areas of the Korean countryside to Western and Northeastern American regions. Throughout all my journeys, I made sure to carry my Nikon F3 camera and 50 mm standard lens to capture unique moments at any time and place. Today, I enjoy using my large format film camera -< 8x10, 4x5, 617 format >- with Schneider lenses along with my hi-res digital cameras. I studied fine art photography at the Art Institute of Boston, Lesley University. I also studied Korean literature at Dongguk University in South Korea focusing on Korean poetry.

What I love most about my art is that it enables me to feel and express emotions evoked from nature.

Thanks for watching!!
