I have been shooting with a phone camera and compact camera for a few years and last year I began experimenting with photo manipulation using applications for iPhone. Since joining InstaGram in spring of 2011, I have learned a lot and played a lot. Seeing that my phone and compact digital snaps had become more interesting, I felt that the time was right to make a book. Very different from my film photography, this collection of images represents a more experimental, creative, and fun side to my photography. I invite everyone to have a look and enjoy!
Note: the book is available in soft cover and with premium paper only
I have been having my photographs published regularly since 1994, first in North America and later in Japan and the U.K. as well. Since 2005 I have been writing articles to go with my photographs. From the beginning I have been interested in landscape photography and more recently in mountain photography. Now based in Japan, I spend most of my photographic outings in the mountains of central Honshu. I continue to shoot with film and always travel with at least two cameras - a 35mm and a medium or large format camera as well. A few years ago I simply preferred film over digital. Now I simply can't afford digital. So for the time being, I do all my "serious work" with my film cameras and use a compact digital just for snapshots while on the trail.
