Travel & Portrait Photographer | Seoul South Korea

My name is Ching.

I have been told my photography style is natural and full of light, and that my photos are very Korean/Japanese. But rather than limiting myself to a specific style, I focus on capturing feelings, and I am all about making your personality shine in the photos.

If you are quirky, fun and feel comfortable in front of the camera, let your boisterous personality show. If you are quiet and reserved, I am not about to make you do cliché poses. Rather, I would prefer to fade into the background and document your precious moments with minimal direction.

I am not here to make you supermodels, but colours and clothes do make the picture, so I might make little requests about what you wear. However, I also believe confidence in front of the camera comes with wearing whatever makes you comfortable. If that means going au naturale because you feel more comfortable without makeup, go ahead. If you prefer wearing sneakers to flats or heels, I am not about to stop you.

Feel free to browse through my blog archives for more ideas on where you can have your photo shoot, and drop me a message or DM to discuss potential concepts. Or if you have any concept that you would like to execute, I am always open to them.
