If you are a bit aware of the street photography blogosphere, you probably already know Eric Kim (http://erickimphotography.com/). He is a young street photographer based in the Los Angeles area and taking pictures all around the world. Eric Kim is undoubtedly talented with a camera in hand and he has a natural genius to detect and capture these strong characters that enrich the streets. However, his photographic talent is not (yet) what makes Eric Kim special in the world of contemporary street photography.
His originality comes from his incredible enthusiasm to share his passion and to pass his knowledge on to others. In less than two years, Eric Kim has built a large, passionated network of aspiring street photographers who follow his adventures and his progression toward, hopefully for him, the status of professional street photographer. One of Eric Kim’s favorite mean of sharing information is through the making of small videos, often taken in his office with his webcam, where he speaks about his photographer life. Recently, he has started to roam the streets with a GoPro video camera (http://gopro.com/) attached to his DSLR, giving us an unprecedented point of view on his shooting technique and his interactions with the people he encounters. The result is shown in the following video that I hope you will enjoy. You can watch more videos by Eric Kim on his blog (http://erickimphotography.com/blog/) and his Youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/erickimphotography).
