Hello I’m Joa! 안녕하세요!

I am a freelance photographer – I love taking documentary, photojournalistic, and behind the scenes photos – my work also ranges from product, still life, travel and places, food, lifestyle. I have a 10+ year career in tech during the day.

My first camera was a Polaroid Impulse – after spending several years with various Canon and Nikon DSLRs, I now primarily use my Fujifilm x100. My photographer inspirations are Saul Leiter, Vivian Maier, Kim Tae Kyun (aka Less), Henri Cartier-Bresson, and honestly, anyone that’s just trying their best.

I am a 2nd generation Korean-American, fluent in English and Korean. I have roots in South Korea, Washington state, and am currently living in Southern California.
