+About

Born in Japan, learned photography, acting, and film making in United States since 2009. Back to Tokyo, Japan since 2014. I am a freelance portrait/fashion photographer, film director and a part time PR specialist.

I make photography in multiple genres, portraiture, fashion, street, and urban landscape as well as film making. Though my work is varied, it is all aimed at one theory: Photography and film making exist to prove life is worth living. Sometime it rains, sometime it winds, but still everyone one of us worth to be here and smile.

Koto Films is not a film making company but a team of myself and my friends who provide nice and affordable production service including location hunting, casting, creative direction, post production, writing and etc.

—Alongside my creative work—

Dan is currently working for a global PR agency on weekdays as a PR specialist and have worked for an advertising agency and a film distribution/promotion company before. At the advertising agency, he produced print advertisements for global clients based in China, including Nike, adidas, Unilever, P&G, L’Oreal, and Coca-Cola.

Best,
Dan
