I very rarely share photography art that I create for my private clients and this is because most of my work is very personal and aimed at both people visiting and living in Tokyo who want to experience something unique, not rushed, and intimate. However, since I will be updating my portfolio and revisiting certain sections of my websites that need updating, I am currently selecting some photos for this very purpose, and decided to share with you this lovely portrait that I took during a photoshoot for a client here in Tokyo this Saturday. It is often that one travels alone or with a companion and naturally wants to take good photos as a memory of having a great time. The problem is that most people do not know how to take great photos. Many of my clients come to me very self conscious and worried about how they will come out in a photo. I always tell them the same thing, it is not the issue of not being photogenic, but the fact that we are used to seeing ourselves in bad photos, because people who take them are usually non professionals. Portrait photography is all about light, body language and a moment, if those are in harmony, then the image will be pleasing to the eye. This very knowledge of sensing the body language and being able to capture it at its best in a great light is what differentiates a pro from anyone else. But this is not the biggest problem here. With current technology and amazing camera gear out there, it is much easier now to snap decent shots. However, the true beauty and charm of photography comes from both the ability of taking great photos and the knowledge of how to edit them to give them a special and unique feel. It is an art to be able to capture a moment in time and make it look meaningful. And this is where my services distinguish themselves, I spend a lot of time post processing every single image to ensure the magazine like quality, and give them a very personal touch, befitting the personality of my clients and the mood they are after. Hiring me you do not hire just a photographer, you are hiring an artist who is passionate about the process of creating. I have well over 15 years of experience in various types of visual and other types of art (poetry, classical music, etc). While taking or editing photographs I aim at creating something unforgettable, something that will not only help you remember your adventures, but perhaps also look at yourself in a positively new way.
