I have started Arlequin Photography as a school project back in 2009, focusing my lens on Japanese musicians from the visual kei and jrock genres specifically, but throughout the years I have expanded this genre more and more. The main focus is still on visual kei and jrock, but other genres make an appearance from time to time as well. Aside from photography the main goal is to help promote the artists in these genres both in Japan and overseas in Europe and even the United States. Everything for Arlequin Photography came out of my own pockets since the very beginning. Equipment costs, travel expenses, hosting, releases that eventually turn into reviews... All of it. Despite this dark cloud of finances hanging above me, I still want to continue my work and promotion wherever I can.
