Don’t have any regrets in your photography or life. Look at the present. Look at the future.
I’m gonna give you real talk: ignore your haters. They’re not worth any of your mental energy.

Have you ever felt frustrated in your photography, because there are all these bullshit “rules” you gotta follow?
Okay, please pardon me friend, but one thing I have is no patience for excuses. Imma rant a bit if you don’t mind. Please close this if you don’t like it.
Let’s continue STREET PHOTOGRAPHY MANUAL by talking how by being more aggressive, you can make better photo and connections with your subjects.
I very much believe in the “beauty of imperfection” — that everything in the world is “imperfect” in one way or another. You will never see a tree in nature which is 100% symmetrical. You will never find a river that is 100% straight. You will never find an organism which is totally symmetrical on the left and right side.
Are you complacent in your photography and life? Or will you fight reality, carve out your own reality with your camera knife?
Why should you invest in ERIC KIM?
Well, he believes in you, playful grin.
I fudging hate pretentious photography, and pretentious photographers.
What does Eric Kim belive in? ZEN CAPITALISM.
In no particular order, here is who ERIC KIM considers the most “famous” and influential/important street photographers.
Dear friend, let’s continue our conversation in STREET PHOTOGRAPHY MANUAL, now discussing how you can get into a good street photography flow.

For this chapter in STREET PHOTOGRAPHY MANUAL let’s continue our exploration into street photography via risk taking.
To continue STREET PHOTOGRAPHY MANUAL, I cannot say I’m the best street photographer. Far from it. But I can say, I’m probably the best street photography educator and teacher. I’m also one of the most brave street photographers in the world.
Let’s go in a fun street photography adventure: I wanna share some secrets, brutal truths, and honest advice on how to elevate yourself as a street photographer: to take your work to the next level, to conquer your fears, and fulfill your personal maximum.
Continuing our series on Photography Entrepreneurship 101, let’s tackle this concept of “scarcity”– how to make yourself more valuable as a photographer and entrepreneur by making yourself more scarce.
Don’t be afraid. Pierce the shadows. Shoot what you’re afraid of.
As children, are afraid of the shadows. We are afraid of the monsters that might lurk in the dark. We let our imaginations get the worst of us.
What if we learned to pierce the shadows — and shined a spotlight on our fears? We would discover that no ghosts, ghouls, or enemies lie in the shadows. What only lies in the shadows are our own self-constructed fears.
Pierce the shadows with your flashlight of truth. Find out that there is nothing to fear in the dark.
Part of Photography Entrepreneurship 101
I wanna write you an essay, or an attempt, at understanding this concept of “value”– how you can create value, how you can value yourself, and why value is important in today’s capitalist society.
Dear friend, ignore your haters.
Rather stay focused on your life goals: focused laser.
POSITIVITY: subtract the negative energy.
POSITIVITY: who holds you back?
POSITIVITY: is your life on track?
This is gonna be a chance to explain why ERIC KIM is the way he is.
Dear friend, don’t be meek– you might not know it, but you’re on a winning streak.
I think street photography is 80% confidence, and 20% skills. Of course, confidence is also a skill– a skill you can build, develop, and mature.
