Portrait Photography in Tokyo
Are you looking for a scenic back alley for night time shots or the best spot to fit the skyline of Tokyo into the frame? Or perhaps you are hoping to get photos of yourself surrounded by traditional Japanese wooden buildings or in a game center bustling with colorful lights? As someone who has been working as a travel journalist and photographer specializing in Tokyo since 2008, I know more than most people about what this city has to offer – both when it comes to the traditionally beautiful parts of Tokyo as well as quirky, fun and unusual locations. And my clients are always more than welcome to tap into my knowledge!
Tokyo portrait sessions
I offer several packages for families, couples or individuals looking to capture documentary-style storytelling portrait photos from Tokyo. My services always include a free consultation over Skype or e-mail where we can discuss things such as locations, the best time of day to shoot or your itinerary. I can also arrange with rental kimonos and other props/experiences upon request for a small extra fee.
Mini Session / 20 000 JPY
A quick session for up to 30 minutes at one location in central Tokyo. Digital delivery of approx 20 edited full resolution photos.
Medium Session / 35 000 JPY
A session for two hours at up to two locations in central Tokyo. Digital delivery of approx 40 edited full resolution photos.
Big session / 60 000 JPY
Unlimited number of locations for up to four hours. Digital delivery of approx 100 edited photos in full resolution.
The above mentioned rates are for locations within central Tokyo or Yokohama. I don’t mind travelling further than that. Please ask and I’ll give you a price estimate where travel time and -costs are taken into consideration.
Tokyo Photo Tours
This combines my services as a photographer and tour guide in Tokyo. Compared to the above mentioned packages that are entirely focused on photography, the Photo Tour packages are equal parts photo session and bespoke tour of Tokyo. Each package is unique and entirely tailored according to your needs. It can be as broad as a tour of some of the most famous sightseeing spots, or as narrow as a visit to some of Tokyo’s best vintage shops, a hike to beautiful mountain shrines or a night-time izakaya hopping tour. Tell me about your interests and I’ll do my best to design the perfect tour for you!
Half Day Tokyo Photo Tour / 50 000 JPY
Digital delivery of approx 40 edited photos in full resolution.
Full Day Tokyo Photo Tour / 80 000 JPY
Same as above but for an entire day (eight hours). Digital delivery of approx 80 edited photos in full resolution.
Clients are kindly requested to also cover additional costs such as entrance fees / meals or travels outside central Tokyo if needed.
Are you planning a proposal or elopement? Or are you here on your honeymoon? Either way I’ll be happy to tailor the above packages to better make them suit your needs. You are always welcome to contact me with any questions or requests!
