Korean Photographer - Travel snap


Perhaps you will prepare a lot for your trip to Korea and spend a lot of money. You may be visiting only once in your lifetime or visiting more often than you think. Do we need to think about how to record those moments that are so important?

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

‘Snap Photography’, which has become popular among honeymooners, is also popular among overseas travelers who is an alone or small group. This is because traveling with a photographer who is bright in the local situation can travel safely and obtain travel information.


A snapshot is popularly defined as a photograph that is “shot” spontaneously and quickly, most often without artistic or journalistic intent. Snapshots are commonly considered to be technically “imperfect” or amateurish—out of focus or poorly framed or composed. Common snapshot subjects include the events of everyday life, such as birthday parties and other celebrations, sunsets, children playing, group photos, pets, tourist attractions and the like.

The local photographer is mainly based on the photo-based SNS. When you search for “Seoul Snap”, “Snap photo Korea”, “Korea Photographer” and other travel destinations, the word “snap” will pour thousands of pictures of advertising. It is a way to negotiate the price by sending a ‘direct’ message to a photographer of the desired style. The price is usually around $100 ~ 150 per hour.

It is priced based on the number of pictures shooting. Prices may vary depending on whether you provide the original photo or how many copies you have.

Hong Se-mi (32), who lives in Seoul and works as a snapshot photographer, said, “Recently, the number of people who inquire about a snapshot through the SNS has increased. It is a great advantage to give someone a feeling of being accompanied by a person who is afraid of traveling alone. It is also nice to be able to take great pictures of traveling even when traveling alone.”

However, sometimes people get into problems when people sign up through social networks only.

Mr. James, who took a snapshot in Seoul last month, said, “The photographer did not know how to take a picture better than expected.” “I contacted the photographer because he did not send me pictures until the date promised when I check his SNS, he’s already closed the SNS account,” he said. “These problems can be caused by contracting one-on-one without going through a formal company.”
