Beautiful view of Smith Rock, Central Oregon (Summer 2020)
I am Mamiko, local photographer in Portland, Oregon. I have worked as a photographer for about 3 years, and I finally created my own photography website. I hope you enjoy my photo galleries!
Little bit about me-
I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. When I was young, I loved adventures. I visited my grandma using the subway by myself when I was 5 years old, and I started exploring new places by train, bicycle, and even with roller skates since then. As soon as I started college, I enjoyed traveling abroad. My most memorable place to visit was Guatemala and Mexico.
My first camera besides an instant disposable was an automatic film camera, a present from my dad. I enjoyed taking pictures with my friends, but never thought about angles, position and stuff. Before visiting Europe for my honeymoon, I purchased my first DSLR, Nikon D40x and took a photography class at my local community collage. I used that camera for a while and loved and enjoyed capturing my boys with this camera. When my youngest child started going to preschool, I got all gears, Nikon 750, iMac, MacBook Pro and so on to start a photography business. Now I love to help capturing memories for clients, learning new techniques, meeting new people, and exploring new locations for photo shooting.
In this blog, I will talk about the behind the scenes for photo shooting and information for promotions/events.
