I am the photographer and blogger behind ShootTokyo. Welcome to my home on the web! I am originally from Boston, Massachusetts but my professional life has lead me from Boston to New York City, Singapore finally landing me in Tokyo, Japan in 2001. I live in the heart of Tokyo with my beautiful wife Mayumi, our 10 year old son Kai and his growing collection of insects.
I work in Technology and I am lucky enough to have a job that allows me to travel around the world. The combination of my love for photography coupled with my frequent travels and bias for technology make a blog a logical and rewarding hobby for me.
There is a lot of information contained within ShootTokyo. I often get emailed about what cameras I use, how I edit my images, what settings I use or where the best place is to shoot in Tokyo. I have compiled answers to the most common questions I get below.
There are more than 750 posts contains within ShootTokyo of my favorite places in Tokyo, my travels or thoughts on photography. If you are new here I suggest you start here to see all that site has to offer.
This is a friendly place so feel free to engage, share, ask questions or just watch quietly from the shadows. Everyone is welcome.
I recently collaborated with my friends at SmugMug. Watch this video to get a feel for what ShootTokyo is all about.
