Keep photography fun

I have always been much more interested in taking photos, rather than writing and blogging. Although this year I have decided to be more active in actually doing something with the photos I take, not just jamming them onto a hard drive and forgetting about them.

See ya 2017…

Twenty seventeen has been an odd, but unusually satisfying year behind the lens for me.  It has been the first time in a long that that I haven’t set foot in Japan at all, and I thought this would be weirder than it actually was.  Most of you know me for my heavily Japanese orientated content, and the prospect of  predominantly shooting non-Japanese subjects scared me a little.  I jumped out of my comfort zone a bit, and enjoyed the new subjects that I found in front of me.

Now it is time to sum up the year that was, and I have taken nine shoots or events to showcase this year.  Some crazier than others, but all were such an awesome experience to capture. Continue reading »

Blogroll – Day 20

While cruising around Tokyo after hitting Subaru, my good buddies Sky Zhao, Ben, and Bryce were landing at Narita airport.  It’s not often a bunch of Kiwis get to go out and cause a ruckus in J-land so we met up for a late night trip out to RWB.

As it happened Sky and the lads were headed for Ebisu the following morning, so with about 6 hours left before we needed to wake up, it was decided to make a day-trip up and have some fun.

Keeping up appearances

It’s no secret that drift cars and battle scars go hand in hand, although it isn’t too often you come across a grassroots drift weapon that is just so damn clean that you always run a double take as it cruises down the pit lane.  Troy Griffin’s 110 is one of those cars.

Blogroll – Day 16

Another day another photoshoot.  The trip so far was wake, eat, shoot, sleep.  Hey, I am certainly not complaining about it though.  Making new friends, catching up with old friends, and snapping photos of all my favourite cars is my definition of bliss.

This was the car that required a few little additional tweaks before being shot the night before, finally it was ready. Say hello to Minekeru’s Hlloween racing S13.

Blogroll – Day 15

As the train pulled out of Hiroshima station, I was now bound for Tokyo again although one more stopover was on the cards.  I was headed back to Kobe to catch up with a bunch of good sorts who I met just over a year ago.

Blogroll – Day 7

Today we headed southwest.  Our destination was Meihan Circuit just out of Kobe.  This is one place I have never been, yet seen so many times on the net.  Despite the rain having set in, that wasn’t about to deter me from shooting some top notch drift action.
