----------------- about me ---------------------->>

i've lived and traveled in eleven countries (so far). i love asian people and culture. in korea, my current home, there's always lots of things to shoot ... er photograph!

as a photographer, i like a few different styles. i love sunsets with silhouettes. i love the sky. i love high contrast black and white.

i also love minimalist photos. i'm not a big fan of photos that are too crowded or busy. i like my attention to be drawn into the photo via focus, lines and framing.

when i take photos, those points are often what i look for. i also like creativity. a new perspective or something original. even a mundane, every day object can be fascinating when shot from a new perspective.

i don't profess to be a good photographer, but i do like photography. most of my photos are ordinary, but the ones i post here on trek earth are the ones i'm most proud of.
