Met this great guy together with his friend (which I also shot, click here for her look) from Japan who was in New York for his study ..apparently something to do with fashion. Being a fan of Japan it’s always nice meeting Japanese people and ask them about their interest and of course Japan itself…even try to properly great them in Japanese^_^.
On this sunny day in Manhattan, as my wife and I we’re doing some shopping, I came across this nice Japanese couple (friends) who both had such a great style. So I approached them, in both the English and a bit Japanese language, and they we’re quite surprised by the way I approached them. We had a nice chat about Japan and their visit to New York. They really liked posing for the blog and especially this woman took advantage of the moment and used the street (yes, the street) as her catwalk.
Generally I really like shooting Japanese fashionistas …often they are very interesting, well dressed or very unique. Also a nice opportunity to speak a bit of Japanese. The downside, most of the Japanese female are shy and don’t speak english… and so they often make a gesture that they don’t want to be approached.

I really liked the retro style that was revealing from underneath her chic coat. It’s always nice to capture Japanese people, because after having visited Tokyo I really miss Japanese people. I find them very interesting, polite and nicely styled.
It was so nice meeting these friendly Japanese women just before the Starbucks in Amsterdam. When I was about to exit the building I immediately spotted this Japanese woman a quickly took a shot (see below). I decided to go after them and ask her for a quick shoot, because I just wanted to capture the whole look the way it deserved to be shot (see above). Besides the shooting it was nice to use this opportunity to speak some Japanese, which went quite well (haven’t used it the last 3 years).

Spotted this Japanese man when I was about to approach another person with a fellow-shooter who wanted to shoot him. So of course I wanted to capture this Japanese man, because of the nice contrast between the loose and the slim fit in his outfit.
