Tell us a bit about yourself

I try to create works that move people's hearts.

Tell us why it's important for you to have a portfolio website
I think it is necessary for people who want to see my work and for people who don't know me to know about my work.
As a photographer what are your tips in building a portfolio website?
I think the top image that jumps into your eyes the moment you see the page is more important than anything else. By arranging the images that I want to convey the most and the impressive images, I can invite visitors to my world view.
How do you market yourself?
I've never marketed myself before, but Corona changed my mindset. I started Portfoliobox and SNS to create a place to get to know me more. However, these are only recently started, and I feel that they are still not enough. The most important task is to increase the number of works to be shown, so we are currently working on several works.
Why do you use Portfoliobox?
I thought Portfoliobox was the best for me because it allows me to create a site instantly with a simple and beautiful template.
