Recent work

The other day, I worked with Caitlyn (Elite Models). She was only 16 and at the same time was very humble, modest and hardworking. I respect people like her who have a great work ethic and upbeat personality no matter what their age is.
Also, it was great to work with Ronnie at the first time. She was the most powerful and funny woman I've met these days. She created a nice mood and atmosphere.
Of course, always thanks to Michelle Davis for the awesome styling job.

Here's a photo from the session with Caitlyn (Elite Models)

3 months

It's been 3 months since I moved to Toronto. I've been trying to make myself busy in order to focus on improving my photography skills which includes post production and building up connections. Hope these efforts allow me to continue doing my passion in the future.

Here's a BTS shot and sneak peak of new work to come ;)

To the Tee Planning

Today we shot a story for publication.
Every team member had positive energy during the shoot and we created so many awesome looks today. I appreciate each individual's creativity a lot. Also. I am really glad at the fact that the shoot went well based on our pre visualization and spontaneity on set.
Hope I can show you the editorial sometime soon.

70mm f3.5

The setting 70mm f3.5 on my camera and lens is my personal favourite these days to use in the studio. 70mm creates enough depth between the background and subject that doesn't make the photo look too compressed with minimal distortion of the model. F3.5 creates a nice sharpness while still maintaining a soft edge :)

Here's a sneak peek photo from our recent studio shoot (70mm f3.5)

New life in Toronto

I've visited Toronto a couple of times before. I like how similar it is to Tokyo, where I grew up. It's a city of many options, and I am happy to restart my passion here.
This is a sneak peak from a photoshoot done in our new studio.
Thank you to the awesome makeup artist, Rhia Amio, model, Agnes (Elmer Olsen Models) and the stylist, Michelle Davis, for this shoot.

West edge

In such a cold temperature, we had a photoshoot at this amazing location today. First of all, much applause to Amanda (Leo Model Management) for withstanding the cold temperature and maintaining her professional attitude. I was also helped a lot by the MUA, Kathy Jan, and her husband Andrew. As always, I appreciate the much help I received from the stylist, Michelle. I was happy to work with today's team, everyone did so well and made the environment enjoyable to work in despite the weather. Photos are coming soon to my "Fashion_location" gallery. Stay tuned!
