Photographer/Director at ZOPH.
b.1980. Brought up in Chiba, Japan. Tomoki stepped into the world of
photography only by accident - his broken instant film camera costed
to fix as much as a brand new camera - he decided to depart with
the old one and get a new one - his first SLR camera.
Since then, he was enamoured with his new camera, and it did not
take long for him to decide to become a professional photographer
for his life-long role.
Tomoki started his career as a sports photographer and also worked
as a studio assistant as well as a trainee photographer to widen up
his fields and the knowledge of lighting skills.
In 2005 he started to work for Bungeishunju, one of the biggest
Japanese publishers where he covered sports, studio portraits and still
life pictures for their magazines and books.
In 2011 he moved to the UK and in 2013, he has formed his own
company "ZOPH." in London, covering sports, studio portraiture
and travel photography for his clients around the world.
