Oscar-winning film director, Hayao Miyazaki; The Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan, Tokyo

Hayao Miyazaki, Oscar-winning director of such classic animated movies as 'My Neighbour Totoro', 'Spirited Away', 'Laputa' and 'Princess Mononoke'.

I got lots of pics of Miyazaki-san yesterday at the press conference he gave at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan. But this one is a personal fave. Not the greatest news shot, as you cant see all of his face like you can in all of my other shots but he was generally so relaxed and at this very moment having a real chuckle about something.

Great to hear the man speak and he really had some great things to say.

Plus, at the end I cheekily got a postcard film-still from Totoro autographed by him for my best buddy, Sam, who lives in London. Sam is a massive Miyazaki fan. He'll be stoked. :-)

I will drop a link on here to more of the pics from today when I have the story and pics all done.

    Hi there,

    I think this photo is great, it really seems to capture Mr. Miyazaki's personality.

    I am currently working on an assignment for school: I have to make a 4 page magazine spread. I would like to make it about Hayao Miyazaki and I was hoping that you would give me permission to use your photo. It would be ideal if you could send me a version without the watermark.

    I'd be happy to send you a copy of my finished work if you'd like to see how your photo was used. And I promise that I will not reuse the photo without your permission.
