I didn't even know my first photoshoot was cosplay! A friend (Heki-Chan) from school liked my photography (non-portraits) and asked me to do a shoot with her in 2005.

I was pretty serious into photography, doing photojournalism and landscapes, but my portrait experience was pretty much zero.

Here's an image from my first shoot!:


She loved the shots and introduced me to all of her Canadian and American cosplay friends. At the time she was pretty big in the scene, so I was fortunate to meet and shoot with lots of other awesome cosplayers so quickly!

Here's a shot from a photoset I'm currently working on, taken at the end of 2012:


Over the past 8 years, I've now shot almost exclusively cosplay and portraits.
It's pretty unbelievable to me how just one person in a single photoshoot has changed my life so dramatically.
