As a Tokyo headshot photographer, I quickly realized that people want casual headshots, too, not only formal ones while wearing a suit. Casual studio headshots are usually used in a less formal environment, while maintaining the professional studio look. And yes, because the word of the day implies relaxation, people will feel less pressure to “perform” in front of the camera.
For casual studio headshots, after presenting my clients what options they have, they choose from time to time, instead of a white or black background, a creative solution like below, using a blue-tinted background. The blue works particularly well showcasing the skin color, making the portraits stand out even more.

Creative Tokyo headshot photographer
As a Japan-based photographer, being creative is a must. The same rules apply to being open to failure. Yes, it sounds harsh(and honest), but failing it’s “the proof for trying,” as I read the other day a post on Instagram. It’s hard to admit, but sometimes failure is the only way to discover new paths for improving and developing skills for gaining more experience.
I haven’t always been specializing as a Tokyo headshot photographer, but more centered around families, couples, events, and pet photography. My desire to be a complete photographer, while relentlessly evolving while learning new techniques allowed me to tackle the studio photography, at first for pets, and then for humans.
Because I love photography, I always try to combine elements from different photography genres. The same generic set of rules applies to a headshot in the studio or one taken during an outdoor family shoot. The differentiating details reside more in the concept of the photographs.
Enough of me writing how awesomely creative Tokyo headshot photographer I am. In the gallery down below, you can find one image which has a black background. Have a look and let me know which look you would choose for yourself. If you don’t like blue, don’t worry: white, black, green, red, and yellow are also options for headshots.
In my studio portfolio, you can find quite a few looks to choose from for your own headshot session in my home studio. My plans include renting a space for studio photography. Unfortunately, the pandemic is making things slower than I wished for my business.
