Dear friend, it’s been a while!

I’m currently writing these words from our AirBnB in Kyoto, ready for the upcoming Kyoto Zen Photo Experience (Sept 9-10).

Hello from Kyoto!

Group selfie with Cindy, Jennifer, and Annette

I’m currently here with my two sisters (Annette Kim and Jennifer) where we are working with Cindy to create a new book titled: “CREATIVE EVERYDAY”. It will be a new book that is designed to help you be (yes) CREATIVE EVERYDAY — learn more by watching this YouTube interview with my sister Annette on
why be creative everyday?

I truly believe that real ‘happiness’ comes from the Greek word: “Eudaimonia” — which means ‘human flourishing.’ I think we are happiest when we are in ACTIVE CREATION — making pictures, making paintings, drawing, and just playing and having fun. Above is the cover design, which was hand-made by Annette (took her about 20 hours in Adobe In-Design, where she made all the designs by hand).

New Workshops in NYC + Europe

I’m also excited to share new upcoming street photography workshops, specifically my new NYC Conquer Your Fears Street Photography Workshop (October 14-15, 2017). You can see all my upcoming workshops below:

The Zen of Phone Photography

Also on an unrelated note, I’ve been having a lot of fun shooting textures on a phone camera. I wrote about his a lot in my article: “Why Computational Photography is So Revolutionary” — see my test photographs on the OnePlus 5 and the Google HDR+ Camera Mode.
