Fall in Jeju [Explore #191]

From Japan to Egypt, France to Cambodia, Australia to Tibet, Indonesia to the USA, and so many places in between, I've travelled the world with camera in hand since graduating from university. I currently reside on beautiful Jeju Island in South Korea. Photography is my passion and this is my life. Welcome to my photostream!

"When people ask me how they can become a photographer, I almost never mention cameras, lenses, or technique. I say, ‘If you want to be a photographer, first leave home.’ As Paul Theroux, a great writer and friend, further advises, “Go as far as you can. Become a stranger in a strange land. Acquire humility. Leaving home really means that the photographer (or writer) has to wander, observe, and to paraphrase Theroux, concentrate on people in their landscape. That is what I try to achieve in my pictures."

- Steve McCurry

“Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.”

- Steve Jobs

"Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever."

- Henri Cartier-Bresson - 1957

"Every photograph is a battle of form versus content. The good ones are on the border of failure."

- Garry Winogrand

“If you have any sort of prejudgment, it’s the kiss of death for a photographer... I’m always very aware — certainly as a photographer, but I hope more as a human being — that you can’t judge people. You have to spend a little more time, look a bit closer. Look under the skin.”

- Jocelyn Bain Hogg

"Look closely at the present you are constructing, it should look like the future you are dreaming"

-Alice Walker.

"Real photography begins when we let go of what we have been told is a good photograph and start photographing what we see."

-Brooks Jensen

Some see things the way they are and ask, "Why?" I dream things that never were, and ask "Why not?"

- George Bernard Shaw

"The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything."

- Theodore Roosevelt

"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose."

- Steve Jobs
