What you'll do

Have you ever considered using that old analogue film camera buried away deep in your Grandfather’s wardrobe? But never known how it works or how to use it… Let me help teach you. This program allows you to have a new experience with an old film camera while enjoying the magnificent city of Seoul. I own various types of film cameras which I can lend you and teach you how to handle, during this trip. I will teach you basic pieces of information about photography, from exposure, aperture, shutter speed and ISO to some tricks. I will not only teach you about film photography but also guide you around Seoul with your camera. We can take film photos in famous tourist destinations, in addition to hidden streets and local places that I know. This package can be tailored to your level and the amount of people that you are, it can be bought as a one-off experience or I can teach you about film photography in multiple classes, over a longer period of time. Come alone and get a personalised tour package or bring your partner and friends and have fun taking images of each other. Even if you already have a digital camera, come enjoy and experience the slower process of appreciating photography.

I am Min a photographer based in Seoul, that specialises in film photography. I enjoy shooting with analogue film cameras as I think the images captured have a timeless aesthetic to them. I want to share my love for film and the special experience of capturing an image with a film camera with others. I have created a Film Photography Guided Tour to share with you my knowledge about photography and giving you an alternative memorable experience in South Korea.
I have grown up in Seoul and know many different areas so can tailor this tour to visit different destinations if you prefer.

Best photography tour I’ve done... ever. Minsik explained everything so nicely. The walk through Bukchon Hanok Village was great and we got to practice shooting with the film camera Minsik lent us. He even went out of his way to meet me later that evening to help me buy a film camera from a local shop. Great guy. Awesome tour.

I stayed in Seoul for a week and Min's class was by far the best part of the trip! Along with what all the other reviews say - Min was very patient, taught us the working functions of the film cameras, and showed us some very cool places around Buchkon Hanok Village. I never got the chance to learn film photography in college so this was an unbeatable experience for its pricing and wealth of information. Would highly recommend this class to anyone!

This is an amazing course if you want to get into film photography. Minsik is great at explaining the basics of how film cameras work, and Bukchon Hanok Village was the perfect place to capture Seoul with film on this fall afternoon. He also kindly advised us on where to buy film cameras and rolls for an affordable price in the area! Thanks to Minsik, we also got amazing photos to remember our trip :)
