Why Book w/ Alvin

Hi! My name is Alvin Kim and I am a recent graduate of Texas Tech, as well as a commercial photographer/videographer based in Los Angeles.

While I was attending college, I had the opportunity of photographing hundreds of graduating seniors, and I am hoping to continue photographing more graduating students in Los Angeles.

1) A compliment that I receive from many, from experienced reputable professional models to clients with zero modeling experience, is that I am very efficient when I shoot. I use a unique shooting technique that most photographers do not use/do not know about, which enables me to take less photos but get more quality photos that are both artistically and scientifically great. 

2) I only use best of the best gear. Great gear does not necessarily make one a better photographer, but when it is paired with a good photographer, it creates magic. Great gear adds great production value and quality. I shoot with Canon 1DX Mark 2 camera and Sigma Art lenses. I only shoot with prime lenses to capture the sharpest photos.

3) I am very flexible. My clients enjoy working with me because I am very flexible. I understand that I cannot always have a cookie-cutter workflow. Want to split the bill for a session with a friend? Sure. Take photos with your cat on a leash? Let me know. I've done both and many more that you can possible imagine.

BOOK WITH YOUR FRIEND (20% discount per person— that's a lot)

Book the same session (time) with your friend but purchase your own package and get your own photos.

We will walk around together, but shoot you and your friend separately/individually. I have done tons of sessions like this and worked very well. Great way to save.

Don't have a friend in mind? Just let me know below and I can see if I can pair you up with someone.
