New stuff to share:

-Check out my new website!

The new TokyPhotography.com

I was in the mood for something simpler, cleaner, easier to navigate and load. I -loved- my old website, but this new one navigates much better and it’s better organized. Please check it out.

-On the new site, check out my new work. There are new images in almost every section: Advertising, Beauty, Editorial, Fashion & Music. Also a new series: En Noir et Blanc. (love love love… hope you will too)

-On the new site as well, check out the new music video! (you can also see it on my Vimeo or Youtube)

-Last but not least, for all my running buddies and readers… I’m gearing up for my next Marathon/Photo Essay: October 17th in Long Beach! Cannot. Wait. So. Excited. I’m trying to make it to Chicago as well on October 10. But depends on $. We shall see.

-The Long Beach Marathon photo essay will be posted at the Spirit of the Marathon Photo Essay website on October 19th. I have lots of goodies planned for that photo essay, so stay tuned.

I hope you all had a great summer….

Thank you to everyone who has visited, commented and e-mailed me about the Spirit of the San Francisco Marathon Photo essays!

I am very grateful to all of you and excited to announce that because of the huge success that project has been, I am starting a website dedicated exclusively to the photo essays as well as other running goodies. Not only that, I’m already in touch with other marathons to create other photo essays documenting different races around the country.

I love ALL your comments! Including comments made directly to me by three (!!!) different friends who asked me: “were you talking about me when you said that everyone gives excuses not to run a marathon?”… so for the record, I wasn’t talking about anyone in particular. The essays are full of “inside jokes” for runners, and we -all- hear those comments, and those are like the TOP comments that we all hear. So… anyways, I thought that was amusing… the more I do this the more I realize we runners are crazy people. Regular folk don’t need to run if they don’t want to 🙂 to each their own

Anyhow, I am hard at work on the marathon photo website. In the meantime, here are what some Facebook folks had to say about the photos over at the San Francisco Marathon Facebook page.

Speaking of Facebook… are you my fan on Facebook? and are you following me on Twitter? If not, this is a great opportunity to do so.

Posted in CD Cover, JotDog, music, Toky Photography by tokyphotography on June 8, 2010

My dear Jotdog’s have re-released their debut CD. I got to photograph them on the 1st edition of the album and that was one of my favorite gigs ever. They saw “Sometimes Catastophes Become Trophies” and asked me to recreate that concept for the album art & packaging for their CD. Their website also featured the photos and illustrations (by the incredible Steve Curcuru). I am happy to know they have been so successful they have re-released the album with bonus materials. My little jotdog’s all grown up…. One last time:

The original look of their official website
