Hokkaido, Japan

I love to photograph action, flight and intimate moments. Lots of my inspiration comes from just watching my subjects as they carry on about their business. I look for patterns in behavior so that I can get set up and prepare for the repeats. I also look for anything out of the ordinary; like a …
