Hasselblad workshop in Meijimura: the magazine with all the shots

Latest edition of my online magazine is up now featuring shots from the recent Hasselblad Discovery workshop we did in the architectural heritage park at Meijimura, Aichi-ken, Japan.

Superb work from al involved. A great team of people, including Japan's premier kimono dresser, Nogata-san.

+Angelia Bell the whole magazine is free and downloadable so I don't see your point. I do plenty of sharing, thank you very much. I don't put high rez versions of single pics of my own work online because it's my livelihood. I certainly don't put high rez of other people's work online, and 80% of this is my students work not mine. But yeah, sorry. Everything in life should be free really, shouldn't it. Maybe wen you go to the grocery store next, ask the owner 'I think you're selling too much... where is all the free food?'

I'm glad you explained the green cast. I though maybe your computer monitor got knocked out of wack or something with its color calibration.

Fashion photography in Japan with Hasselblad: Mari by the roadside

One more from last week's shoot with Mari Hirao out on the Boso Peninsula in Chiba, Japan.

Great little spot we found by the side of the road down to Cape Futtsu. Loved the flowers, then the whole scene fell into place once I'd stopped the car and taken a proper look: the flowers, the road markings, rice field...

The little rainbow bus in the very background.... we used that afterwards. I'll post some of that soon.

Unicorns DO exist: interesting cloud formation, Izu, Japan

I was out  driving and shooting all day yesterday, doing a photo tour for someone on the Japan leg of their round-the-world trip.

We headed off to one of my favourite parts of Japan and one that can be done in a day-trip from Tokyo: the Izu Peninsula.

The last place we stopped, to get the sunset, was a place I first went to in 1999 and which has a very special importance in my life.

It's always a good place to see the sunset, because of the lovely bay, great trees and good orientation towards Mount Fuji. We didn't see the mountain at sunset but we did get some amazing clouds.

...this one in particular, which I watched form, change and move over the course of ten minutes.

It looked very horse-like to the naked eye but when I zoomed into the shot on my camera screen and saw the 'eye', 'mouth' and what looked like a 'horn' coming from its nose.... it was pretty amazing how much like a unicorn it looked.

Great way to end the day.

We missed the M8.5 quake that happened two hours later. Didn't even feel it as we were driving on the motorway at the time. My family in Tokyo had a fairly bouncy ride in our flat for a few minutes... the quake was a long way from Tokyo, very deep but very strong and it shook the whole country.

Location fashion photography in Japan: Mari Hirao at Cape Futtsu

One more from the trip we did earlier this week, over to Futtsu, Chiba, on the Boso peninsula.

Scouted this area back in December of last year. Very different weather then. 

This lifeguard lookout post was an object I really wanted to shoot with. Love the background, the waves and the colour of the lookout structure just really suited the feel I wanted for the shot.

Mari did various poses in and on the lookout. This one works well.

An Introduction to Split-Toning in Photoshop

Now I have figured out how easy it is to combine Quick Time and my Zoom H4N audio recorder, I've made a first little video about my post-processing techniques. 

This one, at the request of +Dean Sonneborn , is about achieving a split-tone effect.

Hi, +hikaru starr . Need to look again but it's probably, if it's the white/light-grey menu you mean, the Nik filters palette.

Samurai master, Tanaka Fumon: photoshoot for AMG Magazine, 2014

As the magazine finally nears publication, I can start to share a few f the shots that didn't make it.

Last year I organised a five-day shoot for Mercedes-AMG Magazine, based around the seed of an idea their editorial department plan planted in me: samurai and AMG.

The magazine featrues only four of the shots we made over the five day shoot, which took us to Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, Amano-hashidate and a few places in between.

None of the shots of the car made it into the magazine. I'll ask if I can share some of those soon. 

We had a great time, shooting both martial arts masters, a sword-maker, landscapes and the car. Driving the AMG E63 was also a lot of fun.

This shot is one of my favourites and two shots of Tanaka-soke [soke is the name for the head of the martial art] and his daughter, Ukyo.. who is now acting-soke.

Lovely people. We had a great time shooting them.

I've styled this a little in Nik Analog Efex Pro. I don't mess around like this often with my work but it seemed to suit this shot.

This was shot just with the daylight coming down from a skylight in the dojo.

Long exposures with Hasselblad H4D-40: Toji, Kyoto, Japan

This was shot a month or two ago, art of a feature I was shooting in Kyoto for Travel and Leisure Magazine.

This shot didn't make the cut for the magazine but is one of my favourites from the three days I spent in the city.

This is the tower of Toji. It sits by a main road, which makes it great for shooting with traffic trails. I couldn't shoot any other angle here as the whole of the rest of the long side of the shrine was covered in scaffolding.

Flower girl: natural shot of Mari from our shoot last Monday

Driving along towards our last location by the beach, we passed this cute bit of roadside... flowers, rice field in the background.

I am at my happiest when I am driving around some nice countryside with friends, a model, a car full of gear. Doesn't get much better.

And I love teasing great shots out of the simplest of places.

Fashion photography in Japan: Mari at sunset, Cape Futtsu

Yesterday was spent out shooting in a bunch of locations near Futtsu City, Chiba.

I'd scouted the locations back in December and this was the first opportunity to get out and actually shoot there with a model.

Mari Hirao was out for the day with myself and Jesse Barnet, a student of mine from Chicago who comes to Japan a couple of times a year.

This was the las shot of the day. 

Great sky.

We'd always planned to end the day at this location, which is a huge pyramid structure at the end of Cape Futtsu, used as a lookout and view point.

We'd had mixed but interesting weather all day but the last of the light was just magnificent.

Great work Mari. Thanks, Jesse, for letting e jump in to get a couple of shots with the setup we'd put together.

Introduction
Freelance photographer and photography teacher in Tokyo, Japan.

Been shooting pics since the age of 7. It's been part of my career since age 21, through the 10 or so years I was in the music business and the five years I ran my own design and marketing company. Went full-time with photography and teaching photography when we moved permanently to Japan, in 2007.

I run weekly photography workshops, photowalks and private photography lessons, which were recently featured in Travel & Leisure magazine.

Have shot as a freelancer for Ferrari, Porsche, South China Morning Post, QMagazine, BBC, TIME, The Wall Street Journal and Lexus - to name a few.

Live in Omori, Tokyo with my lovely wife and our three children. 

Enjoy reading, was a chef once [a long time ago] and still love cooking. Love the sea, the mountains, sitting in a Japanese hot-spring bath, playing in the park with the kids...
