Hi, My name is Hanju Byeon and I’m a freelance photographer. Now I am operating my own business “Nanju Snap” in Sydney. I take the pictures for special moments for weddings and lifestyle. I’ve lived for 2 years in Sydney and love this city very much.
What gear do you use?
I have a Sony a7m3/ a7m2 for wedding and lifestyle photography. I use Sony24-105mmF4g, Tamron 28-75mmF2.8, lenses. I also use FujifilmX100v for my travel and daily life and a GoPro Hero8 for my youtube video.
What type of photography are you into?
Wedding, Engagement, Party, Landscape, Travel photography.
Yes, I love to take pictures of everything for our beautiful moment 😀
How did you start photography? What inspires you?
I am highly interested in taking pictures of anything and feel happy when I grab a camera. I have to bring my camera when I met my friends, so I can remember their looks and precious moments. One day, one of my friends asked me to start taking pictures like a professional. We started to do it together and went everywhere for our photography. She is still a good friend and inspiration to me.

Top 3 photo/editing tips?
- Please look back sometimes. It will give you another view and perspective.
- Turn on the grid on your smartphone or camera. You can match the horizon and vertical easily when you take pictures!
- Take your exposure down for better photography editing later!
What has been your most memorable experience?
I didn’t know about Jacaranda before I came to Australia. When I saw these beautiful trees, I would never forget them in my life. Especially when the flower fell, it was amazing. I am looking forward to seeing it again!
If you had superpowers, what would yours be?
If I had superpowers, I want to control the weather to provide the best photo for my customers. Most of my customers like sunny days during shooting time. I want to adjust this for them 😀
What have you been doing at home during this time?
I tried a new challenge that I have been putting off because I was too. First, I started my Youtube channel to share my daily life. Second, I learned modern calligraphy for my hobby and also started practicing to shoot product photography at my house. I really enjoy the busy days now.
