Happy Holidays to all. Below check out my new ad for Mon Atelier. It’s in the current (Winter, 2011) issue of Martha Stewart Weddings.

*A special thanks to Ali Rahimi for picking this shot to run as his 2011 ad. Sometimes you shoot stuff for magazines or clients that is just a ‘job’ or you don’t particularly love the shot they selected, but in this case non of those things apply as I -LOVE- this shot, so I couldn’t be happier that a bunch of people get to see an ad with a photo I took, that I happen to be really proud of. The shot is part of the series En Noir et Blanc. (check it out in full at TokyPhotography.com)

Below a Behind-the-scenes shot from that shoot.

New Music Video

Posted in Behind the scenes, If life gives you lemons, music, New Work, Peeps, video by tokyphotography on July 1, 2010

I am hard at work editing the second music video I’ve directed. This is a totally different project than my first one (Celia, by James Bowers). I’m editing it slowly so it will be a few weeks before it’s done…. but in the meantime here are a few teaser images of “Forever” by the lovely Piper Hinson.
