Basic Rates

Our base rates are simple as follows. These rates includes a photographer and not any optional  services like hair-makeup and costumes.

Travel Fee

I am based in Osaka, Japan. If shooting is in Osaka, transportation fee is US$50, including gas, toll, and parkings. For Osaka’s neighbour cities include deep historical Kyoto city, Nara, and Kobe, which are within one-hour distance from the city, travel fee can be $50 to 100.


I require 100% advance payment for transactions less than JPY100,000 in total. This is because I have had some problems in past on payment from foreign clients. Please understand this otherwise I cannot accept any session.

In case of long travel

Sometimes I am required to go to remote area from Osaka and its surrounding area. It’s welcome to work in such area as long as it is in Japan.

If additional one days are needed for travel, I require additional one day work pay (but will be discounted).

Discount Rates

I offer discount rates for projects with consecutive working days (more than one day): 1.5 – 2 days; 10%, 2.5 – 3 days; 15%.

I also accept long term works where I take charge of your photographer in Japan. We can discuss about a special agreement in this case.
