Based in Seoul, South Korea

Jason began making photographs at the age of seventeen. As he experimented with his imaginations and conceptual ideas, his love of photography, filmmaking, and writing blossomed as he taught himself how to create freely.

Jason is a graduate of the prestigious Film & TV and Journalism (with a minor in Economics) program at New York University, and is best known for having been featured on the RED website and on NYU News for having shot an editorial film that was sponsored by CHANEL while he was still in college: https://nyunews.com/arts/film/2019/04/22/jason-lee-lucky-filmmaker-tisch-chanel/

From writing editorial press release articles for Chronos Magazine and SJX Watches to making commercially-viable videos for Blancpain and Chanel to producing and shooting a $50,000 narrative NYU thesis film for a gifted film director, Jason has a wide range of experience as a Content Creator. After winning Silver Key at Scholastic Art & Writing Awards in high school, Jason has formally exhibited and sold his photographs at reputable art galleries, in addition to receiving various magazine features online and offline. Nowadays, Jason specializes in shooting short films, fashion magazine editorials, event video productions, and corporate interviews — as a Cinematographer & RED Camera Gimbal Operator. His most notable recent works include promotion campaign videos for WatchTime New York 2021, and a corporate interview of Guido Terreni at Parmigiani Fleurier in Geneva. Jason's thesis film — Delusion (2019) — has won major awards throughout the world, and has been screened in art theatres and on top-tier television channels in South Korea. His award-winning intermediate experimental film at NYU — Santa Maria (2019) — was officially accepted by American Film Institute. When he is not working, he spends his time reading horology articles on WatchVille, capturing photographs of luxury watches throughout New York City, and cuddling with his two most adorable cats (Winston and Oak) at home. Jason has sold over 15 watches as an online watch broker for Watches of Switzerland and Wempe throughout 2018~2019, and he has experience briefly working as a Junior Editor at the infamous Chronos Magazine after graduating from college. He is a grandson of Dong Kyu Kim, a former CEO of Daewoo Architecture, and a former Minister of Foreign Affairs of the current South Korean Government regime. And Jason has graduated from New York University as a university-wide honors scholar in September of 2020 (with a GPA of 3.71) as a recipient of The Founders' Day Award, in which he was a straight-A student both academically and artistically throughout the course of his majors.

Jason, now, is legally a Permanent Resident of the United States, and is currently available for a full-time hire. Despite his busy schedule, Jason always has time for chit-chatting about, and trying on new vintage and modern watches. Jason has no direct affiliation with any of the luxury watch brands he regularly conducts transactions with, and is just a private individual who happen to genuinely love watches, ever since he bought his first luxury watch a decade ago, which was a Baume & Mercier Classima in Rose Gold. All watches listed on the website are guaranteed to be authentic, and come from various dealers around the world.
