Event Photography

November 29, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
I hope you all had the great thanksgiving holiday! I was thinking about what I am thankful about, being a photographer. There are so many to list, but this time, I came up with one.

Photographing corporate and other organizational events always comes with unexpected but great educational opportunities for me. Being a photographer, I need to be there to photograph things, so I do get to experience a lot of things, but events gigs are really something else. For example, I had a great opportunity to work for US mutual fund awards. Another day, I was fortunate to join the Lung Cancer symposium as their photographer. As a photographer I am sometimes given opportunities to work for companies and organizations I have never been in; such as IT companies, banks, schools, various NPOs, hospitals, etc. Being part of events like this broadens my experience as a photographer and also as a person. I am thankful for being able to see various occupations and feel their efforts in their specialized field. 
サンクスギビングホリデーはいかがでしたか?カメラマンとして何に感謝しているのか、考えました。もちろん、たくさんあるのですが、最近思ったことがあります。

フリーランスのカメラマンとして、大きな企業/団体様の写真を撮るとき、色々と学ぶことがあります。カメラマンであるからには、現場にいなければ撮影ができないので、必然的に色々な経験をすることになるのですが、コーポレート写真を撮るときはそのことをとても感じます。例えば、アメリカ全土から1000人近くの投資家たちが集まる、ヘッジファンドアワードや、アメリカの肺がんを専門としたドクターたちが集まるシンポジウムなどの撮影をしていると、今までに全く知らなかった分野で努力をしてきた方々のお仕事の様子を垣間見ることができ、視野が広がります。他にも、IT企業や学校や銀行、色々なNPOや病院などなど。カメラマンとしてのお仕事についてくる、大事な経験の一部に感謝しています。

Central Park Map with Bridal Photos

September 14, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
Central Park has always been the most popular location for pre-wedding / engagement photo shoots. Lots of couples have wedding ceremonies in the park as well. There are sometimes some cute surprise proposals happening there, too! Have you ever wondered if there is a map with bridal photo location ideas? I've just made one with some selected photos of 12 couples! When I just started as a wedding photographer, I saw many beautiful bridal photographs shot in the Central Park, but a lot of photos did not have the exact location info. So I had to do a lot of searches on each photo to figure out where they were shot. Google map is a great tool to explore the park without even going there, but isn't it hard to tell how YOU might look like in the scene without seeing people in the images? So, I thought it might help you if I put together a list of photos I shot in the Central Park with the map! Of course, the park looks different each moment depending on the season and also the lighting, but they could give you some ideas about how a cute couple like you guys would look like in some photos in each location. Also, I am actually terrible with directions and I used to get lost all the time in the park. Maps always help me explore the city! I hope you enjoy this map! 
 
セントラルパークは、NYCのカップルたちの間ではいつでも一番人気があります。セントラルパークで結婚式を挙げるカップルもとても多いです。公園のお気に入りスポットで、サプライズプロポーズなるものが行われたりもします。セントラルパークでエンゲージメント写真を撮りたくてロケーション探しをしている時に、ブライダル写真付きのセントラルパークマップがあったらいいな〜、なんて、思ったこと、ありませんか?今回、このブログで12組のカップルの写真を使って作ってみました!私がウェディングフォトグラファーを始めた時、本当にきれいなセントラルパークのブライダル写真を見て、ここはどこだろう?と思うと、検索にかなり時間をかけて探し出さないとなりませんでした。今はグーグルマップが相当機能的になっていて役に立つのは確かなのですが、写真に人は写っていないため、自分がどんな風にこのロケーションで写るのか、想像するのが難しいですよね。そんな時に、このマップが役立つといいな〜、と思っています。もちろん、セントラルパークはシーズンによって、また、その日の光の具合によって全く景色が変わりますが、各ロケーションでどのような素敵なカップル写真が撮れるのか、以下のリストでなんとなく分かると思います。ついでに言うと、私は超方向音痴で、いつも迷子になるので、マップは必需品です!このマップが皆様の役に立つことを願っています!

Statement


The grief from losing many lives of children never cease. They were our treasure, and the symbol of our future. This photo exhibition aims to visually tell fractions of their stories about how they went through the day. While the children who survived through the disaster become our bright future, those who didn’t will continue to exist as our belief in our hearts. Because I felt it is becoming “something that happened in the past” after the 5 years, I am wishing to once again share these photographs with you. I hope they will remain in your heart for as long as they could.
