James Thurber once said, “There are two kinds of light — the glow that illumines, and the glare that obscures.” Looking at the fashion photography of David Byun, it’s clear he understands the difference.

His mastery of light is in a class of its own, with wide-ranging work. Each scenario, while deceptively simple, presents its own lighting challenges, and each time, he resolves them with thoughtful precision to strike just the right emotional tone for the project at hand.

He’s also a one-stop shop for creatively demanding clients, who increasingly expect the complete package. He scores his videos himself with haunting, atmospheric electronic music, and is accomplished with 3D Computer graphics. In fact, before entering photography, he had a fruitful career as a designer.


Nathan Lee Bush is a photographer and filmmaker in New York City. His work is on his blogsite and Vimeo.
