Some might call me naive, but I like to think I can change the world, one photograph at a time. Now I'm not saying one photograph will mesmerize 7 billion people all at once, inducing world peace and harmony... but I truly hope that the emotions I capture in my photos, and the emotions that those photos may evoke, make some kind of difference. Whether you see something from a different perspective, or you see something that was always there but you never noticed, or once forgot.
My mission in photography is to do that. My mission in life is to leave the world a better place than how I found it, thirty something years ago.
Despite not having grown up with much, giving to charity and helping others was a keystone in my upbringing. That's why every year, I will choose a different charity or organization to donate a percentage of profits from Jase Kim Photography to a worthwhile charity that holds a special place in my heart.
For this year, my charitable donations will go to The American Red Cross (http://www.redcross.org/),
