I created this photography blog as a safe space to express my thoughts on photography and to share my experiences as a photographer.

What to do while in Yokohama? Visit Sankeien Garden Park #1

Yokohama has many things to offer to its visitors. Sankeien Garden Park is one of those places that top it all with the sheer amount of flora and fauna, plenty of historical sites, a three-story pagoda, two lakes, and at least one waterfall, as far as I can tell.

Why I love Yokohama Chinatown | no.1 Chinatown in the world?

Family Photographer For Hire During Tokyo Olympic Games 2021

As a family photographer based in Tokyo and Yokohama, I can only hope the Tokyo Olympic Games will eventually take place in 2021 and that Japan will open to tourists.

About Me

Hi. I’m Cristian, from Romania. I moved to Tokyo with my lovely wife and Yorkshire Terrier in 2019. Using what I learned while completing the New York Institute of Photography’s Complete Course in Professional Photography in 2016, I established myself as a full-time portrait photographer in Tokyo. I believe photography is a form of art polished by technical skills. Being a relentless person, I never rest until you and I are satisfied we’ve achieved the shot we were both after.
