Your Vacation Photographer in Tokyo: Meet Izumi

Meet Izumi

I am a fun loving, driven, easy-going & reliable freelance photographer based in Tokyo. I used to work for a small stock-photography company as a photographer and retoucher. In 2013 I moved to Berlin. After coming back to Tokyo in 2014 I started my current job. I'm doing wedding photo shoots, traditional events for Japanese families and so on. I love to capture not only objects, but also stories, motion, sounds, atmosphere, wind, light and life. Every moment in life to me is special.

Three Things

  1. Before becoming a photographer I used to work as a designer of Christmas trees & decorations for departments stores, restaurants and hotels. My current second job is discovering and importing good picture books from all over the world. I love doing anything creative!
  2. I love to listen to good music while drinking a warming cup of coffee.
  3. I used to play a guitar in a band. I used to live and breathe rock!

Customer Love for Izumi...

"We have nothing but praises for our photographer Izumi. She did her homework beforehand, sent us photos of the spots she liked a few days before the shoot, and even marked these spots on a map. She made our first Flytographer experience really comfortable - it's like we became friends immediately!" - Janice

"Izumi was great about communicating prior to our shoot, she was on time and took a ton of photographs and we really liked the location she helped us pick. She was friendly and very helpful with advice of places to go and things to see in Tokyo." - Nicole

"Izumi listened to what we wanted and gave great suggestions on places where to shoot and what outfits would go with each location since we had more than one location booked. Overall, I had a great experience!" - Elsa
