Complete Photo Archive of Goyang, South Korea

I’m happy to present you with my most complete photo archive of Goyang. Goyang is a city located northwest of Seoul in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. This photo archive details my photography journey documenting Goyang from when I bought my first DSLR camera in 2014, until 2023, when I moved back to Ontario, Canada.

Snow Hill in Goyang (March 2016)

In March 2016, we took a family day to a local snow hill 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 (February 2016)

In February 2016, I set out on a special mission. I took a good long walk exploring all the streets in and out of a small town in Goyang, Gyeonggi, South Korea. I enjoyed doing this. I spent several hours exploring and trying to document the town. I feel it was near the time I began to get into ‘street photography’, however, I’m now seeing the work as closer to documentary photography, especially the way I approached my doing it.

I spent the time documenting more than just special moments of the town, rather, I began trying to document the essence of the town. From this point forward, I did do a lot of street photography, but later much of my work included documenting! It was interesting to reflect on the images of this day. I detail some more thoughts about some of these images in my photo journal.

Evening Concert in Goyang Park (September 2014)

Close to when I first bought a DSLR camera, I was living in Goyang, South Korea. Close to where I used to live they were having a local small-town concert at a nearby park. I went out and took a few images using my camera and on-camera flash. The photographs are not the best quality or otherwise, but they are some of my earliest images of Goyang.


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.
