A decent chunk of Neon Sakura is photographs – just about 99% of all the pictures posted here are taken by myself with my own equipment. Most of this is clear from my various journeys into the world of anime and manga fandom, while another large chunk is from exploring both my home town and those of my friends. Over the years I’ve moved up from point-and-shoot into the world of the digital SLR. By no means am I perfect or a professional – there is just so much to learn and experiment with that it’s more of a fun hobby for myself.

Most photographs are available on Gallery, a sub-site of Neon Sakura.

Did you know…

…that you can ask me for a mini-photo shoot in costume at an anime convention? Just ask politely and I will do so (provided I’m not rushing to a panel or grabbing food). Photos taken are done free of charge. That’s right, free!


Here is a brief selection of my favourite photos. I maintain a decent-sized gallery on a variety of topics for use as stock images for personal, non-commercial use.
