This is my website.
These photographs are my body of work.
This blog post is mine.
My name is plastered at the top of this site in Future Bold.
However everything I'm able to do is a result of everyone else. This post is simply a thank you to everyone that's help me until now and continues to help me.
First, I want to say thank you to my father, I haven't said it enough. He supported my interest in photography even when it had the potential to be just a short phase. Despite being on the other side of the world, he's taken time out of meetings and 4am video-calls to tell me what I can do next, help me figure out what routes there are to take to get to wherever I want to next.
Second, my girlfriend. She's not only my best friend in the entire world but also feels like she's my biggest fan. She'll patiently wait for my to compose and manually expose photographs whenever the opportunity arises. She listens to me ramble on about my ideas or how aperture works, and above all seems to see potential in me even when I don't. She also helps with checking my Japanese.
Lastly, the seemingly never-ending list of people who, through some scope-and-scale of interaction, have contributed to my desire to practice photography. Whether by letting my take a photograph of you or simply telling me you like a photo I took. Also to Wade for our brief vending machine conversation that played a huge role in shaping who I am today.
Thank you all!
