Took a group of people to Hinodecho in Yokohama yesterday, for a session of shooting with two models. This is Akari; part-time model, full-time masters student from Seattle. Great girl, natural model, a joy to work with. The hat and red lipstick were courtesy of Julia, one of my students and an ex-model herself who always brings the finishing touches to any shoot she attends. Hinodecho is a wonderful, grungy neighbourhood which - in some senses - time seems to have passed by. An absolute gold-mine of locations. Everyone seemed to have a good day, getting some great shots. I will put up an article on my website about it all as soon as everyone has sent in their pictures.
