He applied on a whim to Ohio University’s School of Visual Communication, where he earned his M.A. in photojournalism.
His documentary and journalism work, in stills and in film, has earned recognition from Capture Photography Festival, Photo District News (PDN) and News Photographers Association of Canada (NPAC). His clients include The Wall Street Journal, The Globe and Mail, Bloomberg and Buzzfeed News.
Taehoon is also the visual media specialist at Capilano University in North Vancouver, B.C.
