I was a professor of Photography in South Korea for over 15 years. I loved my job very, very much - especially the students made the job so exciting.
I often told my students to "keep shooting," this just meant that they were on the right track and needed to continue the work they were producing. During my time as a professor I made some of my strongest artistic photographic work, but I didn't always live by the advice I gave to my students.
Returning to the United States in July 2019 meant that I would be striving to find work that would enable me to "keep shooting." I am looking forward to combining my creative talent with your specific needs to help me keep my creative juices flowing.
