What you'll do

As I have received nearly 1000 guests with my co-host Chan, I am very confident that I can guide you through the palace and poses, ensuring you have an amazing experience. You'll recieve a different style of professional photos from 2 photographers. (Wearing hanbok is optional)

First, we'll meet outside of exit 4 of Gyeongbokgung subway station. We'll then head to the nearby Hanbok rental shop and I'll assist you to choose a Hanbok for the "princess" and "prince" experience at the royal palace. It will take ~30 minutes to get dressed + have your hair done (price from $8 to $20)
After getting dressed, we will walk towards the palace together which takes 5 minutes.

Don't worry if you think you would feel awkward. I will teach you how to pose and guide you to look natural in the photos!

As I've been in the palace many times, I will bring you to some of my personal favorite spots for dramatic shots, just like in K-Dramas. Also, we will also explore the palace together.

At the end of the trip, we'll walk back to the shop and exchange contact information for us to send you the digital photos.

At least 150 unedited + 10 retouched photos to be received per person*

*Hanboks are not included in the price as it is optional
*There may be up to 6 guests in one session, hosted by 2 photographers
*make ups are not available

Hello! My name is Jason.

I and my co-host, Chan, are Korean photographers with over 3 years experience. We've always been passionate about portrait photography. We love meeting new people and sharing experiences.

In only 8 months of hosting AirBnB experiences together, we've had nearly 1000 guests, now friends, who helped us capture beautiful photos of Korean architecture in the palace.

I've also trained fellow successful AirBnB hosts on how to do portrait photography centered in Gyeongbokgung, who now have experiences similar to mine!

Photography started as a hobby during my study of Architecture in Australia. I always experimented capturing unique compositions of buildings and landscapes with people in the frame. Thus, environmental portrait has been my strength within photography.

My fiance and I had so much fun spending time with Jason and Chan during our shoot. Their English was great! They were super easy-going, kind and helped us get in some amazing shots on this hot summer day. Since they both take pictures, you will be able to choose from a variety of pics from different angles (major plus!). Since we already had a hanbok experience at the palace, they were open to taking pictures at other places we suggested (also a great plus), i.e. hanok village which gave us some really good picture opportunities. If we ever need to get some more candid pictures of us taken in the future when we’re in Korea, we will sure contact these two.

The Hanbok photoshoot with Jason was a great experience that my wife and I will hardly forget. He made us feel very comfortable since the beginning of the experience by being friendly and talkative. He helped us in the choice of the hanbok in order to make us have the perfect photoshoot. He made beautiful photos and he always suggested the perfect spots in the palace and he also explained many things about it. Moreover, he also made us do K-drama photos which were very fun for us. I highly recommend him for having an unforgettable and fun experience with beautiful memories in a beautiful Korean historical palace.

I was a bit worried at first since I've never done anything like this before but the whole experience ended up being amazing. Jason and Chan were both easy to talk to and very funny. I was also the only participant at the time and the temple was empty so we were able to take our time and just have fun. I can't wait to see the photos and all the different angles. :)

Jason and Chan are seriously wonderful people, they made us feel so welcome and honestly felt like friends immediately. They have a great system between the two and they know good locations. We had the whole place to ourselves due to the rare condition but it was a beautiful day. Thanks so much, Jason and Chan :)
