I am a self-taught photographer, installed since 2009 as a professional in Japan.
Before I was a gardener.
When I was a student at the Tokyo University of Agriculture I did a motorcycle trip. I then bought an old camera for portraits and landscapes during my journey.
I like the impression left by a landscape as if ... we discovered it at each look.
What there is in us, emotions ... Life.
Life is beautiful.
The intensity I have to shoot someone and that is reflected in my photography.
This “something” that I can convey, I think.
I like sharing.
For me, the sensuality ... it is an artless beauty ... that fascinates.
Famous photographers inspire me of course, but the most important for me are the photographers and models of Sensual Photography.
They really inspire me ... from beyond the seas.
My work takes much time but I set a rule book a day off for a session of shooting on a personal project.
Yashika-flex, Nikon FM10.
Canon 1D MarkIV, 5D MarkII.
I prefer to shoot black-and-white film and in natural light.
When I found out that my photography could express what I felt ... my photography has changed.
Information, stimulation and relationships to wonderful people.
I expect Sensual Photography to express artistic and touching beauty, that is to say, real beauty of human being, more and more.

Thank you so much for everything, Nicole and Francois!
