5 Years

Five years ago today I sat down at write my first post here on ShootTokyo.  This is my 735th post.   I had very little knowledge about my camera and what I was about to start when I sat down to write the first post.  This is a journey I’m glad I took and... read more

Four Prints

I was contacted a few months ago by a law firm in DC looking for a print for their new offices.   Most of their work is with Tokyo based clients so they were looking of a print of Tokyo.   After a bit of back and forth they decided on a print of my photograph of... read more
