Shooting on location in Tokyo is just about one of my favourite things to do. It’s a coming together of everything I love about my work right now: meeting people, exploring Tokyo, using the world around me like a film-set.

This recent shoot, one of two commissioned by US Navy chef, Jason Donato, is viewable in the latest edition of my online magazine.

From the magazine:Location portraiture forms a large part of my work as a freelance photographer in Japan. Along with shooting fashion on location, the portraiture is my favourite kind of photography.There’s something very special for me about using the city as a studio, a playground. It’s like a film set for me, waiting for the actors to be ushered in.

With so many wonderful locations across such a large city, it’s hard for me to imagine a time when I will ever get bored of exploring and shooting people here in Tokyo.

I’ve been living here the best part of a decade and it’s been sixteen years since I first visited.For me the photographic adventure and the adventure of discovering Tokyo are one and the same.”
