Hello.I am not your average photographer.Born in 1987 in Osaka,Japan. I am with passion and conviction with my friend, my camera at a very early age.I am, and always will be committed to mastering the art of photography. I have embraced visions of design, reality and beauty within our whole entire world. I am the eye of your vision in my work, with the heart of your wishes and your thoughts of calm in your life and with those in which you love. I am most influenced and inspired by one iconic fashion photographer, Richard Avedon. I feel his work and techniques are exactly what I’d like to bring out in my current and future endeavors.
Los Angeles, California has been the most inspirational these past 6 years seeing this beautiful city. I had one of the most successful gallery exhibitions here recently in November, 2017 on Melrose Ave. Where followers came from all around to view and embrace.
I was awarded one of the best of 25 of the showcase of New York fashion resource/magazine "BREED" . I was awarded the bronze out of 10,000 competitors in the professional photo competition of "FUJIFILM” running top of the photography and the camera system industry in 2017.
While committing to my passion I have successfully completed studio photography and art gallery work. I am certified in lighting, light shaping and product knowledge by Profoto which is the world’s top light shaping company.
