Mentorship with Rachel Wolfe changed my life.  I started going to her when I was in graduate school for fine art in Los Angeles.  I was struggling with my studies and art practice, and my whole mind, body, and spirit seemed to be in a rut.  I had recently gained a lot of weight during undergrad, and was nor feeling great about myself, which showed in my work.

Rachel introduced me to a new way of thinking, to live my whole life like art.  She taught me yoga, which I still practice religiously to this day.  Rachel came to my apartment and examined the contents of my pantry and refrigerator, advising me on what will facilitate reaching my health goals.  She took me shopping and taught me the benefits of unprocessed foods, and then instructed me on how to cook and prepare nutritious, healthy meals, while taking into consideration things like my taste profile.

Meditation and mindfulness were keys to unlocking my creative potential, and Rachel made me videos to guide me.  We discussed art at great lengths, in particular photography.  Most of all, her empathetic approach of creating all things with love, but with a critical eye, led me to success.

And the success was astounding.  Through the merging of a healthy mind, body, and spirit, my artwork blossomed into greatness.  I graduated from art school and received the top award from the faculty.  In the year following school, my weight dropped from 275 pounds to 235.

Most important of all, Rachel Wolfe helped me find and love myself.  Through my continued yoga, meditation, healthy eating, and living life like art, I find happiness and inspiration in all I do.

Thank you very much for taking your time to write very valuable review for my photographs.

First of all, please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in replying your review which was due to some accidents that happened to me in the last month.

I really appreciate with your thoughtful comments and advice on my work. Although I submitted many photographs (maybe too many… I’m sorry!!), you gave me helpful advice in many of them.. that is what I have not expected… I am really grateful for your kindness by doing this.

Every comments and information you gave definitely help me to improve both of my skills, presenting my best photographs for each occasion and getting jobs as a photographer.

As you pointed out in the comment, I still find some difficulties in choosing ‘the most powerful photos’ for each competition. It may be because my lack of experience for presenting my works to the public and also lack of observations on how the things work in the area of competitions. I really need to study and do more researches over that theme to get better presentation skill.

I am very grateful to you for mentioning my strong points in my photography. It encourages me a lot and push me forward to try another competition.

Thank you again for taking your time and giving me valuable advice.

Hope to see you in another competition.

Best regards, Mika

Thank you very much for your valuable comments. I am so glad that you enjoyed seeing my photographs. I opened your review, just hoping that my photographs are considered meaningful, and now I am so relieved that you are interested in my photographs. I was thrilled and excited while taking these photographs, but I was not sure that these can be accepted by people because of the unique approach of these photographs. Your review gave me enough courage for me to keep working on this series. Thanks so so much.

I also could feel your generous support in the review. I am not in contact with the universities(I have not studied photography in the university yet), but if there is any opportunity to expose my photographs to people and there is the places that are interested in my photographs, I am willing to try and challenge myself. I sincerely hope to stay in touch with you.

Again, I really appreciate the time and effort for the reviewing of my series. Your review was the valuable gifts to me in the ongoing learning process of photography.

Sincerely, Hee Jung Kim
