Party photographer Banno
Photographer, Web director
Date of birth: June 23, 1971
Main base of activity: Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture
I have photographed many parties in Nagoya, including foreign parties, clubs, festivals, and events, so I am called a party photographer.
I have been working as a photographer for over 10 years, shooting parties, events, bridal parties, weddings, food and products.
I also offer camera lessons and manage models for photo shoots.
I also create wordpress websites using the photos I have taken.
What is a party photographer?
When I say, “I’m a party photographer,” people often ask, “What’s a party? Is it like a wedding party?” I’m often asked.
Foreigners often hold parties for seasonal events, birthdays, and other milestones in their lives, inviting guests such as family, relatives, and close friends.
In Japan, most parties are like “banquets” or “drinking parties,” where the host takes the lead and everyone is treated to champagne and other treats and celebrated lavishly, like the Halloween party that is talked about every year. In a foreign party, the host prepares the food, decorates the venue with balloons and posters, and prepares performers such as musicians and magicians to entertain the guests so that they can enjoy themselves.
In Japan, it’s like a light-hearted version of a wedding party or an after-wedding party.
One of the ways to entertain guests is to arrange for a professional photographer.
As the number of people who have lived abroad and international schools has increased, and people can learn about foreign lifestyles through social networking sites, this type of party has increased in Japan.
House warming parties, baby showers, Thanksgiving parties, and other parties are becoming more and more popular in Japan.
As a photographer, I have been taking pictures of foreigners and people who like to have parties, and even though I don’t speak the language, I try to dress up in fun clothes so that the guests can have fun, and I have come to be called a “party photographer”.
Thoughts on Work
What I enjoy most about my job is that I get to meet people from all walks of life as a photographer and web designer.
Parties, in particular, are often held at the time of starting something or at the time of change, and I often receive power and ideas from my clients.
I continue to work as a photographer because I love the joy and excitement I feel when I am able to share ideas with my clients and give them shape, leading to even better results or unexpected and interesting developments.
I would be happy to be of service to such motivated people through photography and website production.
