I never thought I would call Japan my home, but after 20 years I understand the beauty and appeal of Land of the Rising Sun. Part of my affection for Japan stems from my bride, Manami who introduced me to the essence of this magical land. As an amateur historian and sociologist, the uniqueness of Japan’s past captured my heart and soul, bonding me to the society and culture that is now a part of me. This society has embraced me, and I am no longer a visitor, I have recast myself as a cultural hybrid, always updating my identity with the rich cultural information from the past into the present, and, invariably, the future.
My photography expeditions and assignments have taken me around the world, and my images have been internationally published. Wildlife Videography is another medium that I am accomplished working in. And as the medium of photography has evolved, so have I, adding a digital leaf to my photographic portfolio.
