The Artist in Kyoto, May 2019

A few of you might have noticed a couple of changes to my website. The coordinator and guide sections are gone. This is because I started a new full-time job here in Tokyo from April, and so I have had to retire as a freelance guide and coordinator. I did one last gig as a freelancer at the beginning of April, but since that was finished I’ve been fully committed to work at my current company. It still feels a bit odd, for I have been working as a freelancer for as long as I care to remember and I’m still not used to going to the same place and seeing the same people every day. But everybody are decent and hard-working people, and the job is more than sufficiently challenging so I feel that I’m in an environment where I am able to grow.

More importantly, throwing away my life as a freelancer and settling into a more stable and secure position has freed me as a photographer. Now I can use my camera only to my own end. Only to express what I want. And I feel that this really has heightened the quality of my focus, and thereby also my results. There will unfortunately not be a post with pictures from April, the last month of Heisei, because I didn’t really get to take that many photos during my first month at the office. Stay tuned for May though, for I have been quite productive this month.
