A Photographers Journey into North Korea – Remote Coasts, Buddhist Temples and the DMZ

North Korea

One week into my North Korean journey I have explored Pyongyang’s vibrant districts and small mountain villages in the nation’s interior. Next on our schedule is to drive to Hamhung, Majon, and Wonsan to photograph the remote coastal regions of North Korea. These regions are famed for their deserted white sand beaches, and small fishing communities. From the Coast, my journey took me into the controversial DMZ, and finally back into the mountains to hike to Buddhist temples at Mt Myohyangsan. North Korea is quite the epic adventure!

North Korea Photos You’ve Probably Never Seen – Pyongyang and the Country Side

North Korea

Landing into Pyongyang airport after all of the hype and nervous tension you abruptly realise where you are, the nation that is constantly flashed in the media, talked about in political debates, and known as the most secretive nation on earth. It’s quite overwhelming finally being in North Korea, but I can quite honestly say, it was one of the most exciting moments in my entire travel career. My goal for the next twelve days was to photograph as much of the people, history, architecture, and culture of North Korea as possible. This post is dedicated to the more unseen sides of North Korea, no not missile testing and dubious media jaunts, this post is for those who seek to see the real and authentic side of North Korea.

My Favourite GoPro Travel Accessories

I began traveling with the GoPro in 2013 on my second trip to India. Ever since then I have fallen in love with this mini action packed camera. Throughout my years of travel I have enjoyed using many of GoPro’s accessories, however, not all of them are created equal.
As a professional travel blogger, I can honestly tell you that the world of travel pairs incredibly well with this powerful little cam. I never leave anywhere without my GoPro anymore. Currently, I am using the Hero 4 Black Edition, GoPro’s top end model. But in the past, I have used many other of the models which also worked great!
During my travels, I have recorded awesome videos of diving with whale sharks in the Philippines, rock climbing to the rock-hewn churches in Northern Ethiopia, and motorbiking across the Himalayas over the world’s highest pass.

The GoPro is simply unmatched by other travel video cameras!
