Being a photographer comes with many benefits. Meeting and working with interesting people, traveling to new places, and learning new things are just a few of these. Recently, I was asked by Seoul Magazine to do a travel feature on Yangyang, the surfing capital of South Korea. Not knowing much about surfing, my first reaction was “why me?”. However, my love for travel photography and willingness to take on an unfamiliar challenge soon took over and I was on my way.

Here are the tear sheets from the magazine feature, photographed and written by yours truly:


I was only in Yangyang for a couple of days but I truly enjoyed it. The beautiful coastal terrain, laid-back vibe, and endless photo opportunities left me wanting for more and I will definitely be back! See this work in print in the August 2017 issue of Seoul Magazine.  You may also check out their blog post.
