Alex's Portrait Session
I was recently contacted by Alex, a 26-year-old lad who had relocated to Tokyo. For those just arriving, finding work in the Japanese capital can be a daunting task (especially without a basic level of Japanese language). Until Alex upped his Japanese game, he knew he needed to explore multiple employment possibilities.
Alex soon realized that there are several opportunities for young creatives that don't require proficiency in Japanese. One of those opportunities is modeling. Alex was also smart to know that he, at least, needed a couple creative headshots and portraits to help get his foot in the door at a modeling or creative agency.
That's where I come in...
A couple of weeks after receiving Alex's initial email, I found myself in his flat setting up backdrops and light stands. For the next couple of hours we worked together to create a handful of images that Alex could use to shop himself to a range of potential employers.
I really enjoyed working with Alex and wish him the best of luck here in Tokyo!
