I am an explorer of art in nature and a photographer of its beauty. After 13 years working for newspapers as a journalist documenting the human world, I decided to pursue my innate desire -- to observe and document the beauty of wildlife and their habitats.
I grew up at the foot of beautiful Mt. Fuji in Japan, running around the rice fields, exploring around to find tadpoles, snakes, and butterflies. I remember I was always happy to find wildflowers in a small abandoned lot. I remember I loved the backyard of our apartment complex because it was covered with white clove flowers in the season. Spending days and hours in order to capture the beauty of nature reminds me of my childhood, making me feel like I am back to my real self.
