in a word: Photographer another word: Artist I began to take a picture of my friend with the disposable camera when I was in high school. The keeper of the neighbouring camera store was said: "You should buy a first-class camera, and you would take good care of it." So, I bought a first-class camera (in those days) at the store. I had been using that camera while I was studying in Spain (sponsor: Rotary Club) after graduating from high school. After returning to Japan, I bought a single-lens reflex camera like junk in the flea market of Kawasaki. At 20 years old, I moved to Yokohama, and I bought a new FM10. And then, I kept taking a picture to 26 years old as a hobby, while I helped out with the family business. At 26 years old, I got in Tokyo college of photography at Hiyoshi, because I wanted to really learn the photographic art. When I went to the next grade, I held the personal exhibition in the florist at Motomachi (Mr. Edwin · R · Molenaer). But I couldn't be promoted, so I was intense about my exhibition too much. and I dropped out of school. Then, I worked in the photo studio of Yokohama Sogo and the cameraman's assistant. My works are not exhibited in the art museum. But I am allowed to put my decorated sheet of the photo in Toyono-Don, and also my portfolio puts on in "Nitehi works", "Share", "Joint", "Cafe Pothier" and "Foot Print" at Yokohama. You can see my works at the Flicker. Please search for AquiraE, if you are interested. Photographic subject: Flower→Portrait (female)→Night scene (at Yokohama) Career: Portrait (hair salon), Construction (home builder), etc. P.S. I love music and art including a photograph.
