Japan is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. This is my Japan. This is one of the many reasons why I love Japan. I shot this in many locations around Japan in the summer of 2009. Some of the location include Tokyo, Matsuyama, Imabari, Nagano, Gifu, and Ishizushisan.
I started this as a personal project to try and capture the beauty that I see in Japan. It started as just that...
But now that I have finished, I see it only as a beginning. This video, along with SAIJO MATSURI (vimeo.com/7458088) is just the start of a much larger project that I have now decided to do.
Anyone interested in helping fund/produce this dream of mine please feel free to contact me:
So I hope you enjoy this preview of what is to come in the future.

I believe there is art in everything we see. As I was walking the other day in the city I was drawn to certain objects/things that I felt defined ART. A chair, a rusty bicycle, the back of street signs with stickers on them etc... I think I may do a series of these videos because there is so much...
I didn’t shoot many projects in 2009, but made the best of what I did shoot. Clips include pieces of a music video, a promo video, live reports, time lapses, and road trip videos. Alot of new projects are in the works for 2010.
