Jimmy YH Kim :: Los Angeles |portrait|

The one thing I really love about being a photographer is that you get to meet a ton of interesting people. And it works out well because not only do I get to meet awesome people, but I get to listen to their stories. Every time I photograph people, I seriously feel like a sociologist doing field research. With every click, I'm trying to figure out my subject and learning new things. And I gotta say, I love every minute of it. What's even better is when my subjects buy me delicious food afterwards and we get to talk about life. :)

Jimmy is one of those people photography brought into my life. His passion for music and pursuing his dreams is what I admire about him the most. And not only is he talented, he truly has a heart of gold. Seriously one of the nicest guys out there. And I can't wait to see what the future holds for him. Fo reals. You can check out his site here but his singles won't be out on itunes until late Feb or March 2010. :) Which is why he needed some headshots of himself! EnjoY! :)

I love this! I noticed Jimmy wouldn't smile for any of the shots even when I asked for one. But I broke him. He gave in. LoL.

Jimmy wanted a few shots with downtown as a backdrop and we found the perfect spot for that. :)

My fav.

2nd fav. :)

Thanks Jimmy for the yummy food!!! And Bonny for introducing us! :) Can't wait to hang out again and listen to your singles! :)
