"I was raised on my parents farm in Kimpo about an hour from Seoul, South Korea. For many years, my three passions have been rock and mountain climbing, traveling and outdoor photography. Having had the good fortune to win the Korean National Rock Climbing Championship in 1983 and 1985, and to climb Mt.Denali and El Capitan, I have been blessed with many opportunities to experience nature at her most rare and serene vantage points. 
My photography combines three elements.
The first is the tranquility of the environment. Each scene whether a natural landscape or seascape-possesses the same Zen like peacefulness that I experienced growing up on my family's farm and later in life while climbing and camping out on remote mountaintops. I strive to capture and share this serenity with my images.
Second element is the "picture within picture"- the dominant abstract pattern which is distinct from yet related to the overall image. Because such patterns reveal themselves only through thoughtful and patient observation.
Third element is technical excellence. I personally compose, process, mount and frame my work. I pre-visualize exposure using Zone system. I then compose and capture the scene with 8x10 large and medium format cameras.
I'm privileged to have shared my fine art photography with collectors around the world. It's an endless fascination and exploration with much intrigue.
