The shape of Tokyo
1. What initially got you into photography?
Initially it was through skating. I used my first video camera while making skating edits for friends. From then on I guess I’ve been working backwards through technology and away from skating media. I later studied film at college and university and became very interested in cinematography and directing. I used 16mm for my projects and learned a great deal. Around the same time, I became equally interested in printing my own photos. I constructed a darkroom with my father and began to learn everything I could. Cinematography is the most important influence to my photography, so you could say that it was cinematography that introduced me to serious photography.
