Taehoon Kim (he/him) is a photographer, producer and editor.

Born in South Korea, he immigrated to Canada when he was six. Taehoon graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with the intention of pursuing a law degree, but instead, he re-discovered his love of photography.

He applied on a whim to Ohio University’s School of Visual Communication, somehow got in, and earned his M.A. in photojournalism. His master's project was a short film about a backyard wrestling federation (yes, you read that correctly!).

As a photographer, Taehoon has worked for clients like Bloomberg News, Buzzfeed News, CBC, Nature, Reuters, The Globe and Mail, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. He is a member of Diversify Photo.

His work as a director and producer elevates nonfiction stories to support education and non-profit organizations communicate their mission, values and impact. Most recently, he was the Manager, Content, at Capilano University, where he founded Capsule, the University's digital storytelling project. He is currently the publication's Editor-in-Chief.
