Meet your photographer in Tokyo

Book a local holiday photographer and travel unplugged


My favourite time of the day to take a photograph is when you just start feeling like drinking a beer, just before the sun touches the horizon.

Born and bred in Tokyo, I love the quiet calm pockets inside the big, bustling city as well as lively, local places where you can really see life happening in front of you. I live here together with my Australian wife and our daughter.

I love to feel and capture happy moments, that can remind people of their happiness again and again, creating storytelling cinematic-style photos to reflect the depth of what is being captured.

Through photography, I focus on lifestyle, family, travel and adventure. Although based in Tokyo, I frequently travel to remote places of Japan for photographic adventures. My work has been seen in various advertisements and publications including National Geographic, Vanity Fair, Japan Airlines, Singapore Airlines, TIME, Rough Guide, Lonely Planet, BBC, The Age and CNN.

Pricing starts at $290 USD for a 1-hour shoot.

Wander in Ippei's style

Ippei is your Tokyo photographer for holidays, families, honeymoons, or just a really special trip. He recommends shooting in lively and charming Asakusa, off-the-beaten-bath in Yanaka, in Hamarikyu garden or in Ginza for an urban feel.
