Born in Tokyo, as soon as he put his hands on his farther’s Pentax SLR camera, Mr Yamamoto was fascinated by it. After he taught at public schools as an English teacher for nine years, he started to work as an editor of a publishing company in Tokyo. While he worked as the editor during the daytime, he liked to walk, drive and sometimes cycle around the Japanese capital to take photographs of cityscapes in the evening and on weekends. He was a guest photographer writer at Fuel Your Photography in 2012, a Staff Pro Member of f-Stop Gear, and an ambassador for PHOTOMENTARY by Nikon in 2014 and 2015.
Mr Yamamoto thinks that Tokyo has so many faces. Most familiar ones are in every guidebook. What he wants to find and capture is its hidden faces, which no one else has ever seen.
