Explore the Beauty of South Korea

South Korea is a beautiful country that has been my home for the past 10 years. The beauty of the people and culture has inspired me to explore, learn photography (starting 7 years ago), and begin photographing and documenting life on the peninsula. The guides in this photo journal are my personal notes and thoughts on life throughout South Korea as well as notes for photographers or photography enthusiasts hoping to visit. I hope the journals will be useful for photographers, tourists, and those wanting to live in South Korea.
