Photographer. Born in 1971 Hyogo, Japan.
He aspired to be an underwater photographer when he was a college student and started studying under Mr. Katsutoshi Ito who is the professional photographer. After that he works as a diving guide in Australia, Maldives, and Izu (Japan).
In 1998, he started working as a freelance photographer.
Feeling the rhythm of nature, he has made his own shooting style so as not to give any stress to the underwater animals.
He dived in the coast of Sanriku (Japan) just after three weeks later from the big disaster of Tsunami (the Great East Japan Earthquake), and reported an underwater situation earlier than anyone else.
