He had never been overseas before that, and Africa was the first continent he set his foot on outside Japan. He longed for seeing the world, and have gone backpacking Africa, Asia, South and North America since.

He took up photography two years ago when he was given a 2nd hand Canon 10D and later upgraded to 7D with which he shoots to date.
