Last weekend I went to Kansas City, Missouri with my boss to 2nd shoot a wedding. I’ve been 2nd shooting weddings for almost a year now and I’ve learned so much! 

Here’s a photo I took from that wedding.. sparklers & smiles :)

Kaiten-Zushi in Asakusa, Tokyo

Website | Facebook

One of the coolest things I got to see in Tokyo is a conveyor-belt sushi restaurant. On the walls, there are different colored plates that indicate the varying prices. Chefs would stand in the middle, making all kinds of sushi and putting them on the conveyor belt. People would sit all around and grab whatever plates they wanted and stacked them on top of each other when they were done. After eating, people grab their stack of plates and take them to the cashier. The way the cashier adds up the prices is just based on the colors of the plates, which I thought was really ingenious.

Client Headshots

Time to time I get hired to take people’s headshots for their websites, portfolios, or personal keepings! Here are a few, the two on the top are with natural lighting and the other four are in the studio :)

My friend Morgane came to visit me in Miami from Greece in the summer! You all might recognize her from previous posts, she’s a close friend and has modeled for me on numerous occasions. Studio shots are a bit easier for me to do now, but I definitely need more practice.

Self-Portrait

I’ll be taking a small break from posting pictures of Japan, and I’m going to share with you all some of my best pictures from 2013 that I haven’t published on here yet! One of my traditions is to take a self-portrait before every new year on December 31st. So, here was my last picture of 2013. During my absence, I played around with my studio lights and even bought myself an 85mm f/1.8 with my hard-earned money that I got from 2nd shooting countless weddings.

Lake Ashi, Hakone, Japan

Website | Facebook

From this angle, you would normally be able to see Mount Fuji. The day I went, however, it was filled with fog. It’s alright; the scenery, boat, and fog just made it easier to believe that I was in a fairy tale! No, but really. Haha!

Candid Moment in Akihabara

Website | Facebook

The Japanese like their privacy. I tried really hard not to stick my lens in their faces, so whenever I could, I took pictures of locals doing their thing. When they’re sick, it’s totally normal to wear face masks so that others wouldn’t catch whatever they had. Not sure what this man was waiting for, especially since it was raining outside. Oh well, at least I got a good picture out of it!

Shinjuku-Gyoen National Garden

Website | Facebook

For two or so days, my best friend whom I was traveling with got sick. I decided to roam Tokyo alone for that whole time, and one thing I definitely wanted to see was the National garden in Shinjuku. It was scary riding the subway alone, and I was caught by locals several times just staring at the map, confused about where to go. The Japanese are the kindest people I have ever met; one lady went out of her way just to ask me if I needed help, in English!

The Studio Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Japan

Follow me for more photos from my trip to Japan! :)

It was forbidden to take pictures inside the museum; I snuck one photo, but I loved the museum and the studio so much that I decided to respect that, and put my camera away. Photos outside were acceptable, though! I haven’t seen any high-quality images from the museum on the internet (except the official ones of course) so I thought I’d upload these just to give you all a taste of the museum! I went to Tokyo during the summer of 2013, and being a fan of Studio Ghibli & Miyazaki films for over 7 years, visiting the museum was an absolute must.

Here’s me with the transportation bus! It was customized and ridiculously cute.
