本日発売の雑誌 PRESIDENTプレジデントにて漫画家・矢口高雄さん(「釣りキチ三平」他)と釣り具メーカー”グローブライド”社長・鈴木一成さんを撮影いたしました。

オフショットのようなこの一枚、お気に入りです。

A portrait of 78years old Manga artist Takao Yaguchi (right) who drew the very first fishing manga in Japan called “Tsurikichi Sanpei,” and Kazunari Suzuki (left) the CEO of GLOBERIDE, one of the biggest fishing product company in Japan. I find this shot very lovely as Mr. Yaguchi somewhat acts like a young boy, excited. Taken by Makina67. Thanks for letting me use film, it was quite a thing as the magazine had never accepted a film photograph for the last 12 years.

『神はディテールに宿る。だからディテールが大切なんだ』-宮崎駿監督

 

Assigned work for kotoba magazine. Α portrait of Ghibli Museum’s new chief curator, Kazuki Anzai, and the museum itself. I really enjoyed walking through the museum after it was closed, photographing all the little details of the museum representing the world of studio Ghibli. Hayao Miyazaki’s new short film, “boro the caterpillar” (which is now on the museum’s theater) was something that you should watch. Very new, full of surprise.

Recent work for ORICOM CO.,LTD and their 2019 recruitment website. (ORICOM is one of the oldest advertising agency in Japan.) I did all the photographs as well as 30 seconds short movie top of the page. It was actually my first time I did one movie (directing/shooting/editing) as α work, and even though it was α short one, I was simply glad about it.  All the photographs, also, turned out to be much better than the one I did last year. Maybe I’m getting better as α photographer (I hope.)

皆さまに、感謝。

明日3/3から3/18まで東京都写真美術館の地下一階でAPAアワード2018展覧会が開催されます。

The series of photographs I did last year as the assignment for National Federation of Forest Owners' Co-operative Association α.k.α. JForest won α prize in APA AWARD 2018. (APA=Japan Advertising Photographers’ Association) It’s been 5 years since I won α prize in the same contest, that time with my personal work, and I wasn’t sure if I would ever be able to win α prize in the advertisement section. Glad I did. It would be great if I could win α real prize someday (like 3rd, 2nd, or even 1st one)

So all the photographs including mine will be shown in the exhibition at TOP museum starting tomorrow for the next two weeks. http://www.apa-japan.com/news/2018_03.html It could be fun because there’s no such chance to look at so many advertisement pictures at the same time. It’s not free but I’ve got some free tickets with me, so just let me know if you are interested in going. I’m excited with this exhibition thing but am even happier that my works are archived in this APA AWARD 2018 book http://urx3.nu/IPg9<As you see, it’s quite expensive which I couldn’t afford to buy 5 years ago. This time, I’m lucky because art director kindly would buy me one. Thank you thank you.

シンガーソングライターのmaria.fのMPVを作りました。スチールも少々。

 

 

I met this girl a few months ago when I was hanging out in this crepe place I daily go. It was around 2pm and I had just finished my work and so (so?) had a little bottle of wine with me. (Just to note, the shooting took place at a winery in tokyo)  I shared the wine with her and had a long conversation. That's how we met. I found her to be a real good singer and she liked my photography as well. We are now good friends and am looking forward to making her next music video with her.

Α portrait of α retired Olympic swimmer Takeshi Matsuda, the recent assignment for the magazine Surfin’ Life March Issue. Shot by Linhof, with no digital at all, I took six pictures this time for total. Although I’m α bit nervous about totally having to depend on the outcome of 4x5 films, I prefer its simplicity. Anyway I always come to love how it comes out. He was such α sweet, polite and nice guy. How happy he looked when he was talking about his 3-days old baby girl..

For the first time, my pictures are put up on the big board (200x728cm) in the train station. That’s already exciting enough, but that train station is actually one of the world’s busiest station: JR Shinjuku Station, which carries 3.6 million people every day. (I still remember the day I first got lost in this monster station 7 years ago, looking for my elder cousin who I ended up locating almost 30 mins later.) Anyway, if you’ve got a chance to be in Shinjuku Station (near center-east exit) in one week, please drop by and have a second to look at this. At the same time, another ad (different design) is also now on the trains which run in Tokyo, no matter which company it is.

Documentary photo work over the speech given by Maya Kobayashi for "Blood Donation from Age 20" campaign presented by Japan Red Cross. Maya Kobayashi, one of the most famous newscasters in Japan had recently gone through this painful experience of losing her beloved only little sister Mao Kobayashi because of breast cancer. In front of 300 high school student at Kojo high school in the west Tokyo, she talked about how blood donation saved her little sister over and over during her battle with breast cancer. I was most impressed by how serious and pure those high school kids looked as they were listening to her. I wish more people would take some time to donate their blood since it's really not a big deal, you know, it's done in 30 mins to the shortest! (I am such a blood-donation lover myself. I go there and take my blood out every two weeks once I become available for the next donation. I don't know how I became one and why, but hey, it's great to become a help to somebody!)

DODA(デューダ)さんのYouTubeバンパー広告を撮影させていただきました

計6シーンです(5秒x4シーン、15秒x2シーン)

Recent work for DODA, one of the biggest job board in Japan which provides recruitment services for those starting or changing their careers. There are four different versions of 5secs videos and two 15secs, and you can bump into these on YouTube if you've been googling like "changing career" in Japan(I guess.) I really enjoyed shooting these videos and would like to thank people who let me do this fun work at the end of the year.
