Meet Masa in Kiso Valley

I'm a professional wedding/family and vacation photographer based in Kyoto & Nagano. I also do landscape photography as my personal artistic works. My photography style is all about naturally documenting unique moments, and the real reactions of my clients. So I have no set routines. I will never ask you to say cheese, let you do unnatural poses, or tell your kids to stay still. I'd like the photos to be very unique, just how it should be. So please relax and enjoy the photo session together. My reportage style work has won an honourable mention at Tokyo International Photo Awards.

Three Things

  1. I love to travel, go camping, go snowboarding, or any kinds of outdoor activities. My favourite is travelling, I have been more than 70 countries so far. I love seeing new people and new places.
  2. One thing I can't live without is of course my camera. Even on my day off, I would like to take pictures as my hobby. I love photography so much.
  3. I had been working as a mechanical engineer before I became a photographer. I changed my profession into taking photos in 2012 because I loved taking photos so much and I wanted to interact with people rather than staying in front of my computer.
