This site is about my passion for photography, which I have pursued now for over 20 years and my love for Kyoto, where I live for 5+ years. This also lead to the name Kyotographer (Kyoto + photographer).
I hope you enjoy the photos on this site as much as I did taking them!
Oh, hello again, you kept on reading! Granted the intro above is intentionally short. Let me start off with a journey through my photographic interests and focuses…
In my early days of me undeniably being a photo-enthusiast, I considered myself a travel photographer. Everybody who takes pictures on vacations knows how easy it is compared to photographing one’s own hometown. At least many start out this way.
I still like taking pictures on vacations and on trips, it just comes naturally.
By now, I am also an experienced event photographer as I had the chance to photograph weddings, charities, non-profit and commercial events.
The fascination of capturing moments of people on events lead me to my latest interest in candid photography (or street photography).
