I basically had three different missions on my trip to Tokyo. It all started with the chance to give feedback to the designers of my favorite cameras en gear. The second assignment was to test a new lens and a new camera. Last but not least, I was commissioned by Fujifilm Belgium to shoot a photo story. I’ll tell you more about that story later when it all comes together. I tried to combine things whenever possible to get as much out of my time in Japan as possible. After the first three days I already had a lot of pictures that fitted the photo story. During my last two days in Tokyo it was all about filling in the blanks. A photo story is not just a bunch of good pictures, it needs a natural flow and all the pieces of the puzzle to make it work. Finding the missing pieces is not as much fun as wandering around aimlessly with a camera. It’s about doing your research and working hard to get the images you need. Nevertheless I truly enjoyed my last two days capturing the vibe of this amazing city.
Enough words, on to the pictures:
A big thank you for sending me on this trip goes to the Fujifilm X team and Fujifilm Belgium. And I would also like to thank the guys at Fuji who welcomed us like old friends and Kevin, David and Zack for the interesting conversations and all the fun.
