Complete Photo Archive of Gyeonggi Do

I’m happy to present you with my most complete photo archive of Gyeonggi Do. Gyeonggi Do is a very busy, populated province that encompasses the capital city of Seoul, South Korea. With the majority of each city bordering Seoul, it’s easy to come and go from most cities in Gyeonggi Do for day trips and the like. I spent much time in various areas of Gyeonggi Province and documented what I found in these areas. The following is the most complete archive of my work in these areas.

Visiting Land of the Morning Calm (April 2016)

In April 2016, my family and I enjoyed a beautiful trip to Gapyeong. During our trip, we choose to visit the Land of the Morning Calm. The Land of the Morning Calm is a popular attraction in the Gapyeong area. It’s a beautiful garden with several flower festivals throughout the year.

Snow Hill in Goyang (March 2016)

In March 2016, we took a family day to a snow hill in Goyang to go tubing. But I didn’t miss the chance to take some photographs here and there. This Korean family was having an amazing time, and I couldn’t help but enjoy observing and capturing the moment.

Documenting a Small Town in Goyang, Gyeonggi Do (February 2016)

In February 2016, I began exploring a small town in Goyang, South Korea. I had a fantastic time documenting what I discovered there. It was interesting to reflect on my work and see how my work resembled documentary photography, instead of street photography. This would later suit my future photographic style much better, and it’s interesting to see the roots of such. I share more about some of the above images in my photo journal.

Evening at Everland Amusement Park (January 2016)

In January 2016, I visited Everland, one of the largest amusement parks in South Korea, located in Yongin, Gyeonggi Do province. I took long-exposure photographs of this scene of the merry-go-round.

Visit to Munsan in Paju, Gyeonggi Do (January 2016)

I visited Munsan, Paju, which is located in the central Northern part of Gyeonggi do, back in January 2016 to photograph and document what I found there. I walked the streets exploring and capturing the interesting things that I noticed. At this point, I developed a taste for high-contrast, black-and-white photography, which I still find attractive. It certainly seems to be the beginning of my developing my current photographic style.

Before concluding this article, I’d like to take the opportunity to tell you about a program that I am offering to photography learners, beginners, and aspiring photographers, free of charge. The goal is to help you improve your photography and develop your unique style. I will become a mentor to help guide you and give advice. We will also review your images and determine how to improve them. I call this The Photography Mentoring Program. You can sign up for the program here.
