I consider photography as one of my tools to execute my art. Prior to photography, I expressed myself creatively through the use of graphic design and motion graphics.
In Tokyo, I gained experience studying graphic design and motion graphics, then began working as a CGI designer in a visual effects studio. This background has given me a strength in my ability to focus on all details of the photo and control how the image is received graphically. Each aspect of the photo, both subtle and obvious, interact with each other and as a whole in communicating the vision, or the message.
I believe a photographer can take great photos no matter what the environment is if you have enough creative perspective. Continuously learning and pursuing my perspective is how I get closer to my goal of taking amazing photos that I can one day be satisfied with.
