About

Hi and welcome!

Quick confession – I am far more active on Google+ (in fact, most of my blog posts are pulled from my Google+ stream), and recently Flickr.  With a full-time job in IT (and a full-time interest in photography), this is simply the most efficient method I’ve found for displaying my images and interacting with friends.  That being said, you are more than welcome to get in touch with me via the contact form on this site if you do not have a G+ or Flickr account.  If there are any topics on Japan that visitors would like me to comment on/take pictures of, let me know and I will try to do so!

Thanks for visiting!

…oh, I guess I should also include something “about” me..

I’m a book addict (particularly sci-fi and fantasy!), infrequent runner, and semi-computer geek.  Been in Japan 10 years and counting now, but don’t have the language skills to prove that since I’m too chicken to practice what I learn.  (the fact that I’m half-Japanese makes it all the more embarrassing).  Oh, and as mentioned, I do have a full-time job in the IT industry.

I started photography as a hobby when I first picked up a DSLR in August of 2010 and have been shooting ever since.  To those that stumble across my images, I hope to be able to share the various facets of the life and landscapes (both man-made and natural) of Japan, and other countries that I visit.

I started out primarily shooting landscapes, but have been experimenting with street and model photography recently (you can see my latest shots in the “photos” section) – if you would like me to photograph you, drop me a line!

Most of my images fall under the creative commons license – feel free to download and share the image(s) as long as it is for personal use (and they are properly attributed).

For commercial use, please contact me to work something out (note that I would likely grant free use of my images for charitable/NPO use as well, but I DO ask that permission be obtained first).

Thanks again for dropping by!

Jeff
