I’m Dave

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 9 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.

This is a friendly place so feel free to engage, share, ask questions or just watch quietly from the shadows.   Everyone is welcome.
