Jason J Kim, a pharmacist by training, has started photography to capture the beauty of the nature and people.  He is self-taught in photography and digital Photoshop while sharing his learning experience with other amateur photographers.  

Jason grew up in South Korea and now lives in Snohomish with his family.  He began his journey into photography merely as a hobby but quickly turned into a passion.  He traveled extensively in the state of Washington and surrounding states to capture the beauty of nature.  Recently, he has chosen to focus on portrait photography capturing the beauty of people in daily lives and has been working on cultural subjects such as hanbok, Korean Clothing. 

His passion and curiosity pushed him to find out how he could create better images, which led him to more in-depth studies in photography.  He believes photography is a life-long learning process that he would enjoy doing it.  

Artist Statement:

Jason J Kim is a Seattle based portrait photographer. He started photography as a hobby, which quickly turned into a passion.

Jason loves capturing images of nature, landscape as well as people. Last four years, he has been focusing his effort on portraits and his passion in photography is to capture the precious moments of one's life in photos to cherish forever. His shooting style of portrait is based on fine art photography with fashionably inspired, modern concepts and fun in mind. His source of inspiration is his subjects. He believes the essence of portrait photography is to capture images that display the likeness, personality, and even mood of the person.

Born in Seattle in 1962. Grew up on Bainbridge Island, known in school as an "artist".

Attended Lakeside School. Dreamy, disorganized, but passionate about words, music, Art. Graduated Class of '81.

Attended College at Evergreen State, studying film production. Adopted my nickname "Siege", short for CJ. Graduated in '85, BA. 

Accepted into Cornish College of the Arts, spending some years concentrating on printwork. Switched to enormous paintings for the 5th year. BFA in '91.

Next 20 years: Painting in Seattle - various studios - becoming a graphics pro - home in North Seattle.

Siege talks about his art:

The painter should never describe his paintings, ever - for any reason. The art has to do all the talking- but off the record I often say, "industrial figurative."

A native of the Pacific Northwest, I work on a paper surface on top of canvas with a strong graphic element including typography and atmospheric graphs of Mars. All are worked into the mix as compositional elements. Depending on the light, and mood of the viewer, it is possible to see something new with every viewing.

I am told my technique of applying and manipulating paint is unorthodox. The surface is pushed, pulled, scratched, scraped, and "attacked," before I then use an industrial belt sander to grind away at the results. And I build my own frames out of recycled cedar and industrial material.

I was born in Texas and moved to Washington when I was nine after a couple of other moves. I’m currently a rising junior going to Skyline High School, and though I was interested in art from an early age, I didn’t draw regularly for years. I’ve been having art lessons since October 2014, which has greatly helped me to get better at drawing.

Erin speaks about her art: Using my art, I try to convey the common theme of time and how things are when suspended in a single moment. I enjoy using color and details to evoke a greater sense of realism and depth, especially in the medium of colored pencils, which is by far my favorite for fine detail, though it takes so much more time.
