Hello,thanks for visiting my shop and portfolio. My name is Yuko. I’m a Japanese freelance nature and landscape photographer.

I was born in Toyohashi City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan and grew up in Hiroshima.
From April 2009 to March 2013, I lived in Melbourne, Australia. In 2012, I took up a TAFE course to learn a basic photography skills, at NMIT (currently changed its name to Melbourne Polytechnic.) My photography career had started since then.

In April 2012, I became a contributor for Getty Images Moment, and in September 2014, I signed as non-exclusive contributor for iStock. by Getty Images. Since 2013, when I came back to my home town, my main focus is nature and landscape in Hiroshima and places I travel. The year of 2016 saw a lot of change, I started photographing lifestyles and food as well. There are still many things to learn so I will keep on going.

Living in a multi cultural city gave me a good eye to find a beauty in the ordinary. I learnt that there is nothing that is ordinary when you find a beauty from it. My artwork may not sophisticated but has a nostalgic feeling in a way that reminds you of a good times in your childhood. Currently, I’m back in Hiroshima, Japan and travel time to time with my camera to capture beautiful moments.

Hello January 2017!

Although I made this account much earlier, January 2017 is the first month for me as a RB artist. I upload new works, name them and organize them. At a start, it was hard to choose which image is to be uploaded since I had no idea what customer want. I still don’t know so I changed my approach – I upload what I would love to purchase if I was my customer. That made a lot easier to cho…
